OPPO R11s & R11s Plus Design
The biggest change in the new phones are the full-screen (18:9) displays which have replaced the traditional 16:9 displays and given the phones a new look. There also are some changes in the camera and battery departments but not enough to warrant a change if you already own the OPPO R11 or R11 Plus.
The switch to 18:9 displays means the R11s and R11s Plus look different. The fingerprint scanners have been pushed to the back, thanks to the reduced bezels. Connectivity ports and microphones are still in the same position but now sit in a groove.
OPPO R11s & OPPO R11s Plus Specs
On the rear we still have dual cameras which are slightly raised with a LED flash on the right. Keeping them company is the fingerprint scanner. OPPO has also ditched the double-line design of the antenna lines for a single thick one.
The OPPO R11s has a 6.01” 2160 x 1080 display. It is powered by the Snapdragon 660 SoC and paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
The rear cameras are a combination of a 20MP f/1.7 sensor and a 16MP f/1.7 sensor. The front facing camera is still a 20MP sensor but now has AI features that add some few tricks. The AI Beauty works the same way as that of the OPPO F5. You get over 200 facial enhancements, scene detection, and portrait mode.
The OPPO R11s also packs a 3205mAh battery with support for VOOC fast charging technology. It comes with the new Color OS 3.2 based on Android 7.1.2 Nougat which brings new features like Night Shield, face unlock, and a smart gallery that categorizes images according to the faces, time, location, scenes etc.
The R11 Plus on the other hand has a larger 6.43” screen, beating the unreleased Gionee M7 Plus to clinch the title of largest full-screen display. It is powered by the Snapdragon 660 too but gets 6GB of RAM. Storage is still 64GB though. Camera configuration is the same as the R11s but there is a larger 4,000mAh battery under the hood.
