Chinese smartphone manufacturer Oppo just announced the R11s and R11s Plus, which are both expected to be close relatives of the upcoming OnePlus 5T
. In particular, the rumored OnePlus device is rumored of inheriting the general design of the Oppo R11s but would feature a bit beefier specs inside.
Anyway, let's talk about the R11s and the beefier R11s Plus. With a stand-out bezelless design and trendy 2:1 displays, the two devices are as contemporary as it gets. While you won't find a Snapdragon 835 inside (which would definitely be the case for the OnePlus 5T
), the new Oppos would likely prove to be neat upper mid-rangers thanks to the efficient Snapdragon 660 that's powering them.
Yet, the true highlight of the Oppo R11s and R11s Plus are their cameras. Both phones feature dual-camera setups (16MP f/1.7) + 20MP f/1.7 at the rear but don't expect ultra wide-angle, tele-photo, or even monochrome solutions. Both cameras have the same field of view and are capable of snapping pictures independently based on the lighting conditions you're shooting in. It's said that the 20MP snapper is optimized for low-light scenarios whereas the 16MP one would be used in any other more favorable scenarios.
