- New R11 will utilise power efficient Snapdragon 660 mobile platform
- Boasts even better photography capabilities with improved dual camera array
OPPO announced that its latest flagship model the R11 is the world’s first smartphone to be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 platform. The handset is now available in Singapore.
The phone features a 5.5-inch Amoled full HD touchscreen display.
As mentioned above it is powered by a Snapdragon 660 and backed by 4GB of RAM with 64GB of internal storage, which can be expanded further with a microSD card.
Following closely after its previous flagship model the Oppo R9s, the R11 follows the R series’ footsteps in emphasising its camera features.
Apart from that, it is powered by a 14-bit premium Spectra 160 Image signal processing (ISP) image processing technology with dual rear cameras using the combination of a 16-Megapixel wide-enable and 20-Megapixel long focus camera.
Meanwhile the front facing camera has been upgraded to a 20-Megapixel one for clearer selfies.
For the new R11, the introduction of the Spectra 160 ISP brings extra power to its camera enabling smoother optical zooming, fast autofocus and better low light photography.
This is not the first time Oppo has collaborated with other established technology suppliers as it has worked with Sony on the IMX 398 sensor used in the R9s.
The Oppo R11 comes in gold and black and costs S$699.
The R11 was well received when it started selling in China on June 16, with sales breaking the record set by the R9s.
