Oppo is known for what it can do when it comes to selfie-centric smartphones. Talk of the new Oppo F3 Plus that comes in with a dual-lens camera on the front.
However, reports say that the company has plans to shift this dual-lens camera setup to the back of the much rumored Oppo R11. If this is true, the phone will actually be the first from the Chinese OEM to ship with a dual-lens camera on the back. Even though the latest listing on GFXBench doesn’t show us the presence of the dual-lens camera, it can confirm that the main shooter will feature a 16MP sensor (which should be dual) alongside a massive 20MP selfie shooter.
This is huge from Oppo, but something that those looking forward to the release of the Oppo R11 actually expect from a phone considered to be the high-end offering from the company. Despite the huge megapixel counts and dual-lens setup on the R11, the support for video recording ends at 1080p.
The benchmarks also confirm that the Oppo R11 will ship with a 5.5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) display screen, which is a great panel. Under the hood, the expected chipset is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 or maybe the newer Snapdragon 660 clocked at 2.2GHz and paired with an Adreno 510 GPU. There is 4GB of RAM and internal storage of 64GB.
As far as the software is concerned, the Oppo R11 will beat the expectations and ship with the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box, something that is not characteristic of the Chinese OEM. Still, it would be a huge welcome for fans of the R series.
Other rumors have claimed that the Oppo R11 will still be accompanied by a Plus variant that will possibly keep the same specs but feature a larger 6-inch display screen. At the MWC 2017, the company also showcased a new 5X zoom dual camera technology, but so far, no one knows if this technology will make its debut with the Oppo R11 and R11 Plus.
