OPPO launches an Avengers-themed F11 Pro

Currently limited to Malaysia

Published

on

Last month, OPPO launched the F11 Pro. The new smartphone flaunts an improved 48-megapixel pop-up camera worthy of its price. Given the company’s recent canning of the R series, the F11 Pro shows a lot of promise for the brand’s smartphone future. OPPO still has its sights set on market domination.

However, the smartphone’s recent release offers another timely opportunity for the brand. In just one to two weeks, the year’s most awaited movie, Avengers: Endgame, will open in theaters around the globe. As always, a new Marvel flick is a prime branding opportunity for a lot of companies. Like others, OPPO is capitalizing on the blockbuster opening.

In Malaysia, OPPO has announced the launch of a limited-edition variant for the F11 Pro. The Marvel’s Avengers Limited Edition sports a snazzy blue back with a red Avengers logo. The variant launched with a promotional video interspersed with shots from the movie’s trailers. Unfortunately, the video does not include the edition’s specifications or bundled accessories.

Very likely, the variant will carry the same specs as the regular F11 Pro. However, given the promotion, the device will likely come with Marvel-themed accessories.

Currently, OPPO is the only one offering an Avengers-themed device. However, more devices might pop up as we draw closer to the opening date. Last year, OnePlus and Acer both released limited editions of their own devices to promote Avengers: Infinity War.

The OPPO F11 Pro carries a Helio P70 processor, 6GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. The battery clocks in a capacity of 4000mAh. However, the Marvel’s Avengers Limited Edition will likely carry a more premium price tag.
