INTRODUCTION

OPPO R11s Plus
OPPO R11s Plus

The Oppo R11s Plus is a high-end device made to target flagship range of the market. The specs on this device seem pretty decent and it will be available in three color variants i.e., white, black and pink. The mobile is yet to make its debut and is set to release on the 1st of November 2017. After taking a quick peek at the specifications, the device seems to be impressive and a value for money in the higher region of the price chart. With the recent development of smartphones, the line between the expensive and the cheap is slowly fading away. What used to be a premium feature is now made available in the entry-level segments as well. As impressive as it may sound, it breaks the economy in a way that manufacturers have to keep putting more into their smartphones to compete in the higher range.

DESIGN AND DISPLAY

OPPO R11s Plus Design & Build

The Oppo R11s Plus sports a 6-inch OLED display with a resolution cap of 1440 x 2880p which is quite the standard in a top tier device. Although the pixel density hasn’t been revealed, anything around the 400ppi mark will make this device a viable option. In terms of design, the R11s Plus will have a full metal unibody design with rounded edges and a very thin body and a front mounted fingerprint sensor. The only thing that may put the users off is the bezels both on top and the bottom of the device. It has a screen-to-body ratio of ~70% which is not bad but isn’t good either. This is the little hiccup in a device which was more or less perfect in its appearance and specs. The smooth aero-gamic design makes them easy to hold, but you may want to attach a back cover since it can easily slip off.

PERFORMANCE AND CONFIGURATION

We are waiting for the much anticipated AnTuTu benchmarks scores as soon as the device goes live. For now, we can only assume it to be above the 70,000 or even the 80,000 mark, given its hardware specs. Under the hood, the R11s packs an octa-core 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 6GB of RAM to go along with it. The GU hasn’t been revealed but we are assuming it to be the Adreno 540 since that is the standard choice for the Snapdragon 540. The device also has 64GB of internal storage and there isn’t any news about any other variants. Also, the smartphone has space for an external memory as well which can be expanded up to 512 GB. All in all, the device packs some serious heat and rest assured, we can expect some impressive numbers in terms of performance. The fact that whether the sim slots are hybrid or not hasn’t been unveiled by the company. The R11s also has the Android 7.0 Nougat and the new Colour UI 3.0 out of the box and any details about a future update are still in the works.

CAMERA AND MULTIMEDIA

Now, this where things get a bit exciting. The R11s Plus has dual rear cameras with a whopping 16 and 20-megapixel sensor combination and an aperture of f/1.7 and f/2.2, respectively. It also has a dual-tone LED flash, phase detection autofocus, and a 6-axis optical image stabilization. There is also a dedicated Qualcomm Spectra for faster and more efficient image processing.

Video recording is supported at 2160p@30fps which was a bit downer since you’d expect at least a 60fps from such a smartphone. The front camera also has a 20-megapixel sensor with 1080p video recording features.

In terms of multimedia, the basic audio and video package includes MP3, WAV, eAAC+, MP4 and MP4, FLV, H.264 respectively. The library can be expanded via a third party application.

BATTERY AND CONNECTIVITY

The Oppo R11s Plus is powered by a non-removable 4000mAh Li-Po battery which, if well optimized should be more than enough to power through the whole day.

In terms of connectivity, the device has dual sim capabilities that also supports 4G bandwidths with ease. However, the case regarding the sim card tray is a hybrid variant hasn’t been resolved as of yet. The device will be available in black, gold and rose gold variants at the time of release.
