When Oppo India was unveiling the new F5 smartphone in Mumbai, the company’s China arm introduced the new R11s and R11s Plus smartphones in Beijing. Set to go on sale later this month in China and next month in Taiwan, the new R11s smartphones are mid-range devices.
Oppo R11s specifications
Oppo R11s sports a metal unibody design with bare minimum bezels. There is a 6.01-inch 18:9 AMOLED display on-board with 2160x1080p resolution. The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor and packs 4GB of RAM and 3205 mAh battery. Additionally, Oppo has included 64GB of internal storage, dual-SIM support and 4G LTE connectivity in the R11s.
For photography, there is a dual camera setup on the back of phone with 16MP and 20MP f1.7 sensors. Unlike most dual camera smartphones, this setup doesn’t include telephoto and wide-angle lens configuration or colour and mono configuration, but both sensors in R11s setup are standard. The phone will automatically switch the sensor according to the light conditions, in the bright lighting conditions, it will use the 16MP sensor, but in low-light conditions, it will go for 20MP sensor and then use “2?m composite pixels” to enhance the quality of the phone. Not sure how it is going to exactly work in the reality, but it sure sounds interesting.
