OPPO is pumping out phones faster than any other manufacturer nowadays. This time, they’ve pulled the curtains on the R11s duo. Being on the higher end of the midrange spectrum, the R11s is going to set you back roughly Rs. 47,000.
Unsurprisingly, the OPPO R11s is quite similar to the R11 that was released just a few months ago, which means it has a sleek aluminum unibody that gives the phone a smooth and elegant feel. On the front of the phone we have the now larger 6-inch screen. However, the resolution stays the same at FHD+. Above the screen is the insanely generous 16MP camera whereas the back has a dual camera setup similar to that of the iPhone 8 Plus. Below the cameras and towards the middle of the phone is where the fingerprint scanner has been placed.
It seems as if once a manufacturer goes 18:9 with one phone, they can’t afford to go back. At least OPPO seems to think so, if you look at all the recent phones they’ve been releasing with tall sleek displays.
The one on the R11s is a 6-inch AMOLED panel with a resolution of 2160x1080, also known as FHD+, which equates to a pixel density of 402ppi; a little less than its predecessor. To protect this beauty of a screen, a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 5 is spread across it, providing maximum durability.
Following in the footsteps of the R11, the R11s has an excellent front and back camera setup. To be specific, the main cameras are huge: a dual 20MP + 16MP pair. The 20MP sensor has an aperture of f/2.6 with normal autofocus whereas the 16MP one has a f/1.7 aperture with phase detection auto focus. The R11s can record 4k videos at 30 frames per second without any trouble.
The front selfie camera is a generous 16MP one with an aperture of f/2.0 and video recording capability of 1080p at 30 fps. These specs ensure you’ll get results as good as the R11, if not better.
Now that we’ve covered all the visual goodies of the R11s, it’s time we dive deeper into what the phone has hiding underneath the metal body. Starting right off the bat is the Snapdragon 660 processor, Qualcomm’s best midrange chipset. The Snapdragon 660 is a power efficient beast that allows the R11 to support the monster cameras it has without as much as breaking a sweat.
To keep things running smoothly is a healthy amount of RAM, 4 gigs of it that is. That’s more than enough to make Android 7.1 Nougat, which is pre-installed on the phone, fly like a jet. With 64GB of memory on board and the option to expand it up to 256GB, storage is not going to be a problem when you buy this phone. To top it all off is a bigger battery than its predecessor, a 3200mAh one to keep your phone active all day long.
Oppo R11s's lowest price in Pakistan is Rs.58000.
