Oppo’s R11s and R11s Plus Are Modern Super Mid-End Phablets

Oppo has unveiled a new duo of upper mid-range smartphones with the launch of the new R11s and R11s Plus. The two phones offer mostly similar specs, other than the larger display, battery and RAM on the Plus variant.

Design and Display

The duo is a clear proof of the high-end bezel-less trend trickling down the smartphone chain. The two phones feature 18:9 aspect ratio displays. The R11s comes with a 6″ AMOLED panel with FHD+ resolution, while the R11s Plus ups that to a 6.43″ panel. Also, there is Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

There’s a fingerprint scanner on the back, though, most users will use the face recognition which can work within 0.08s.

Internals and Storage

Under the hood, you get the octa-core Snapdragon 660 processor with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage on the standard model. The Plus version ups the former to 6 GB.

The OS running is Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The phone includes a hybrid SIM card/microSD card slot as well.

Camera(s)

At the back sits a dual-camera system with a 16 MP (f/1.7) and a 20 MP (f/2.6) lens. The 16 MP lens has PDAF while the 20 MP sensor has a simple autofocus. Accompanying them is a dual-tone LED Flash. At the front is a 20 MP (f/2.0) camera.

Battery and Price

The standard model comes with a 3200 mAh battery, while the R11s Plus comes with a larger 4000 mAh cell, with both supporting fast-charging.

The R11s is priced at $450, while the R11s is considerably higher at $560.
