Fresh off announcing the OPPO F5 in the Philippines, OPPO raised the curtains in its native China and made the OPPO R11s official.
As the naming suggests, it’s a refresh of this year’s R11, with the biggest upgrade being the 6-inch AMOLED display, which, similar to the F5’s, adopts the 18:9 aspect ratio for a more immersive viewing experience. The resolution is still full HD, but it throws in more pixels, coming in at 1,080 x 2,160.
And because the screen occupies most of the front, there is no physical home button that acts as a fingerprint reader. A dedicated sensor is intuitively located on the rear of the OPPO R11s.
Inside, the phone packs the same octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor in its prodecessor, and it comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable memory to store apps and personal files.
The selfie camera has a 20-megapixel sensor and touts OPPO’s AI-backed beautification feature, which debuted alongside the F5, while the main camera system is made up of two lenses at f/1.7 aperture each. The back-facing cameras carry 16- and 20-megapixel sensors for crisp photos.
The R11s runs ColorOS 3.2 based on Android Nougat, which introduces some nice refinements, including performance mode for high-frame-rate gaming at 60fps.
The OPPO R11s will be available in China from November 10 for 2,999 yuan, or the equivalent of P23,124 or $455. Demand is high in its native market, with preorders crossing 345,000 units within 24 hours after its unveiling.
OPPO led the Chinese smartphone market the previous quarter with 18.9 percent share, per analyst firm Counterpoint Research. Huawei and Vivo finished second and third, respectively, accounting for 18.6 percent of the market, while Xiaomi and Apple rounded up the top five.
