OPPO R11 Now Official in China

It has been weeks of leaks and rumors, but today, OPPO is putting an end to it. At least for the R11 smartphone that was recently made official in China with the promise arrival beginning June 10 in their home country. The R11 Plus remains in the rumor mill though.

The R11 was posted on OPPO China website all together with some more official photos for the device and specs that confirm all the rumors about the phones.

OPPO R11 is a 5.5-inch smartphone with 1080p and AMOLED display. Inside it are the newest Snapdragon 660 processor partnered with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. This will also support microSD card but most likely to occupy SIM 2 slot just like in the latest OPPO smartphones in the country.

And like most recent OPPO devices, the R11 is still focused on on its camera capabilities. However, instead of a more selfie-centric it now has more emphasize on the rear shooters. Dual rear camera, like what the leaks suggested. That's going to be a 20MP+16 camera combination with 2x Optical Zoom functionality. The front shooter is still pretty impressive though, coming in at 20MP configuration. We will learn more about these cameras when OPPO officially makes the launch on June 10.

On the Chinese website of OPPO, it is stated there that this R11 phone will be available in three different colors - Gold, Rose Gold, and Black. Running on the super latest Android 7.1 Nougat with ColorOS on top and energized by a 2900mAh battery.

Speaking of battery, looks like it's going to be the most exciting features of this R11 next to the camera set up. Why? Because a couple of days ago, OPPO teased an image on their Weibo account (Chinese social media site) that the R11 will come equipped with VOOC Super Flash Charge technology. Now in case you are not familiar with this particular fast charge tech from the company, it is capable of charging a battery from 0 to 100% IN JUST 15 MINUTES. This VOOC Super Flash Charge was announced last year and that was the promise OPPO gave to audience at the time. Just take note that the numbers were based on a 2500mAh battery, OPPO R11 has 2900mAh.

In the latest teaser from OPPO, the Chinese electronics giant claims a five minute charge on OPPO R11 will provide users up to two hours of talk time. Pretty impressive right? Of course we have to see it performs using the actual unit before we can fully believe. But basing my judgement on the claim, I think the OPPO R11 is going to be an awesome device simply because of that charging power.

  • 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED Display
  • 1920 x 1080 resolution
  • Snapdragon 660 processor

While the OPPO R11 has just been announced, it won't be available in China at least until June 10, 2017. Pricing has yet to announce by OPPO but rumors again is suggesting it will be priced around $485 (Php24,000). Also, we are not sure if this will also be released in the Philippines. R series of devices from OPPO don't really come here, what we have are the F series. Hopefully OPPO will offer the same R11 features in the next F lineup, F5?
