Just days after a big leak revealed its new R11 smartphone, Oppo has made its latest flagship official. It’s essentially the iPhone 7 Plus clone we were expecting, with dual rear-facing cameras, a Snapdragon 660 processor, and Android 7.1 Nougat pre-installed.
For now, Oppo has announced only one R11 — instead of two as previously expected — with a 5.5-inch AMOLED display and Full HD resolution. Alongside the Snapdragon 660 processor, you get 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and a 2,900mAh battery. The device also boasts a fingerprint scanner embedded within its home button.
On the back of the R11, you’ll find one 20-megapixel camera sensor and one 16-megapixel sensor. Just like iPhone 7 Plus, these combine to offer 2x optical zoom that allows you to get closer to your subject, and a Portrait shooting mode that blurs the background of your image to focus on a person or object in the foreground. Sounds familiar, right?
The R11 also offers a 20-megapixel front-facing camera for super-sharp selfies. It will come in gold, rose gold and black, and it will make its debut in China on June 10. Oppo hasn’t confirmed its price tag yet, but recent rumors have claimed the R11 will cost around $485.
There is no mention of the R11 Plus, which is expected to offer a larger 6-inch display, 6GB of RAM, and a bigger 3,880mAh battery. It’s unclear whether Oppo has chosen to focus on just one version of the device, or whether the R11 Plus will come later on.
