OPPO, the well-known Chinese brand famous for innovative camera phones, has unveiled a duo of OPPO R11 successors – the OPPO R11s and OPPO R11s Plus. Only a week ago, we have come across the most rumoured OPPO F5 – a camera-centric and AI-focused device but it looks like R11s series will get more positive response this time.
The R11s is not only a refreshed version of that was launched six months ago but in actual its way more than that; the major highlights are the Face Unlock and FHD+ display. Here comes another twist, the R11s sports a 6.01-inch FullHD+ AMOLED panel from Samsung with an 85.8% screen-to-body ratio and a screen resolution of 2160 x 1080. Whereas the R11s Plus has a 6.43-inch display featuring an 18:9 screen, AMOLED panel with FHD+ resolution.
Both the siblings share some similar specifications and handful of features including 64GB of internal storage, microSD support up to 256GB, 20MP f / 2.0 selfie camera, 16MP f/1.7 + 20MP f/1.7 rear camera and ColorOS 3.2 on Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
Although both the smartphones are powered by same Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor but on the memory front, we meet two options – the R11s with 4GB of RAM and the R11s Plus with a 6GB of RAM. Likewise the Plus model gets a plus-sized battery at 4000mAh while the standard R11s carries the smaller 3205mAh unit.
The dual camera setup on the OPPO R11s and the Plus variant is comprised of 20MP + 16MP sensors with both sensors utilizing f/1.7 aperture and a large 2µm pixel size for better low-light performance. The front camera is a 20MP shooter with f/2.0 aperture and the company is throwing in features like AI Beauty, portrait mode and scene detection for an enhanced selfie experience.
The selfie camera benefits from a built-in AI to enhance photos. This is done by collecting data points such as age, skin tone, and facial structure; allowing the camera to automatically capture the best selfie every time. Face unlock is also a unique feature added to this device which uses artificial intelligence to recognize its user. It has an unlocking speed of 0.08 seconds.
