The first tip of premiumness you can pick up from the Keecoo P11 Pro is the all-metal body and overall body build of the device. The second is the minimal and reduced bezels which Keecoo says gives maximal views for a more cinematic experience when watching movies or playing games.
The Keecoo P11 Pro has a bigger display size (6.0-inch) with a 1440 x 720 pixels resolution and an average 268 ppi pixel density covered and protected by a 2.5D curved, tough scratch-resistant glass.
Regarding the internals (software and hardware-wise), the Keecoo P11 Pro isn’t any different from the original Keecoo P11; MediaTek MT6737 chip, 1.3GHz Quad-core processor speed, Andorid v7.0 Nougat operating system, Mali T720 graphics processor – exactly the same internal configuration as the Keecoo P11 Pro.
One of the new introduction is the dual camera set-up on the rear of the smartphones. The setup is made up of a primary 13-megapixels lens and a secondary 0.3-megapixel lens for special bokeh effects when taking pictures. Some features of the camera include Autofocus HDR Panorama Self-timer ISO settings Continuous shooting Digital zoom, and shoots high-quality videos FHD 1080p videos at 30 frames-per-second.
The selfie camera is a 5-megapixels lens, and not only does it take pictures, it is also in charge of 3D recognition of the face for device unlock. Compared to the Keecoo P11, the P11 Pro has a more refined and faster unlocking Face ID recognition system.
Storage-wise, the P11 Pro comes with the same configuration found on the Keecoo P11; 2GB RAM and 16 internal memory respectively with support for storage expansion up to 64GB via external micro SD card.
Since battery capacity and usage time are highly taken as important factors when many potential customers plan to buy a new device, Keecoo deemed it important to increase the battery capacity on the P11 Pro. The device comes with a non-detachable 3,100mAh Lithium Polymer battery.
The Keecoo P11 Pro, available in Black and Blue colours has been launched in February 2018 and is presently being sold on pre-sale at $115.99. Frankly, for a 6.0-inch full view display phone with 2GB of RAM, metal body, dual camera set-up, Face ID recognition and decent battery backup, $115.99 is a very fair price for such piece of tech.
If you are in the lookout for a smartphone that packs trending features and modern-day innovation at a very affordable price point, then the Keecoo P11 Pro is most likely what you need.
