OPPO officially announces the R11s with 6-inch FHD+ display

The “OPPO R11s has been a topic of discussion for a few weeks now. However, between recently leaked renders of the phone and specs raining through their normal outlets, we were pretty much expecting to see what we saw.

Hardware-wise, something that does stand out is what OPPO calls the phones crescent arcs, which prevents the users hands from blocking the sound output while watching video or playing games. The company had to modify the headphone jack and microUSB port in order to accomplish this.

ColorOS 3.2 brings improved performance and efficiency. The new update also brings Split Screen mode. Facial unlock is part of the feature set here as well, incorporating artificial intelligence to recognize its user. Face unlock can act as quickly as 0.08 seconds.

The OPPO R11s offers a high performance mode for gaming at 60fps on the Snapdragon 660 CPU. Pair that with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage for storing plenty of games, music, and video.

The R11s has a 6.01-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution at 2,160 x 1080 pixels, protected by Gorilla Glass 5. Over the screen is OPPOs 20MP selfie camera with ai-based beautification. The main camera carries over from the OPPO R11: a dual camera system, combining a 16MP camera and 20MP one. Both cameras have f/1.7 apertures.

The OPPO R11s will be available starting November 10 in China in three color options: Red, Black, and Champagne. The refreshed OPPO R11s will cost CNY 2,999 for the Black and Champagne models while the Red paint job is available for a CNY 200 premium at CNY 3,199.
