As 2017 come to an end, we are winding down and wrapping our heads around the Pixels, Galaxy and iPhones of the world. But then if we look closer, some of the smaller brands are making big headlines with their flagships hitting a tough nail to the big OEM’s. One such spectacular launch, right after the RAZER phone, is the Oppo R11s and Oppo R11s Plus. Read on to find more.
So let’s get the spec sheet out of the way for like-minded nerds like me. Recently Oppo announced the R11s and R11s plus. The R11s hosts a whopping 6-inch display with an FHD (Full HD) resolution. The screen is definitely an eye turner since its an AMOLED. The battery is 3205 mAH, which is not that much if you think of it, but then again it’s an FHD screen, so should do justice to the phone. The R11s would be available with 4 GB of RAM.
The R11s Plus, on the other hand, has a 6.43 FHD display and comes with a whopping 4000 mAH battery. This seems to be the new gold standard. This monstrosity of a battery can save you embarrassment on a rainy day, no questions asked. The R11s plus would host a 6 GB RAM. Both phones would be amped up with the Snapdragon 660 Soc, clocked at 1.8 GHz. And both would run Android Nougat 7.1.1 based custom skin called Color OS 3.2. Both the phones would host a dual lens camera system on the back. (16MP and 20MP). Both the phones would also host a 20 MP front-facing camera. That’s a lot of megapixels for front facing ones.
The most exciting for me would be the 4000mAH battery. The phone would just never die on me. I’d love me some peace of mind like that.
So the phones are fairly cheap as compared to the high-end smartphones. The R11s is priced at Rs 30,000 for Black and Gold variants. There’s a special Red version which is priced a 31,300/-. The R11s Plus is placed at 36,000. The R11s will be available on November the 10th and R11s Plus will be available on November the 24th.
Did you know about the 300k registrations of the Oppo R11s in the first twenty-four hours? Read on to know!
So my initial impression is that if you’re looking for an affordable, reliable handset that lasts more than a day, plus comes with a decent display and camera, you’re in for a treat. Can’t quote much on it unless it releases. Definitely, there are chances of ill fate, like the odds of Pixel 2 XL’s with their Display burn-ins, but then lets hope the best from it. Just looking at the spec sheet, a phone being amped with 6 Gigs of RAM and 4000 mAH battery with half the price than the big OEM flagships is quite a steal. Definitely waiting to know more as we get hands-on.
