Design and Construction
F11 Pro’s triple back gradient design leaves a lasting impression. It’s made of poly-carbonate and comes in two colors: Thunder Black and Aurora Green. It’s round on the edges and has a metallic frame that gives it a sleek appearance. The unit still retained the micro-USB charging port at the bottom and a 3.5mm audio jack—a plus point for audiophiles. At the top center is the main feature of the unit, a motorized 16MP f/2.0 pop-up selfie shooter. At the back is a dual 48MP f/1.8 + 5MP f/2.4 rear camera setup and the LED flash— outlined with metal ring for added protection. Just below it is where the fingerprint sensor is also located.
The F11 Pro features a notch-less display and a slim bezel with the whole unit measuring to 161.3 x 76.1 x 8.8 mm. The added screen real estate is due to the pop-up camera’s inventive position at the top center.
Display and Multimedia
F11 Pro’s notch-free, 6.53-inch full HD+ IPS LCD (1080 x 2340) screen gives it an 84.4% screen-to-body ratio. Its 397 ppi density makes it a functional smartphone for gaming, video streaming, and other multimedia use. Its specs bode well when it comes to mobile photography as well.

F11 Pro runs on Helio P70 octa-core chipset and is packed with Mali-G72 GPU along with Android 9.0 and ColorOS 6 software. These specs are more than enough to facilitate smoother transition from one app to the next as well as customizing graphics and themes. Its hardware also excels in the bio-metrics arena giving the unit up to 13% of performance boost that can be seen in its fingerprint sensor and facial recognition system. Other useful features also include the Smart Bar and Smart Assistant.
Memory-wise, F11 Pro has a 4GB RAM + 64GB storage and a 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant. It has a dedicated microSD slot for expandability up to 256GB.

Its AI capabilities can work on 23 various scenes and 864 combinations of good viewing angles. Meanwhile, its motorized pop-up 16MP selfie shooter also offers accurate AI scene and facial recognition. Mobile photography enthusiast can choose between three major app modes: Photo, Portrait, and Video.
The unit boasts a large 4,000mAh battery power with a 109-hour endurance rating. It comes with VOOC 3.0 fast charging, capable of fully charging it in about 80 minutes. Meanwhile, its 20W adapter can charge from 0% to 40% in 30 minutes.
