For all intents and purposes, the R11 is OPPO's iPhone 7 Plus. It's an Android-powered smartphone with two rear-facing cameras and somewhat of an Apple inspired design.
Using two sensors on the back - a 20MP primary camera, and 16MP secondary camera - the R11 is able to simulate up to two times zoom by swapping between lenses. As with the iPhone 7 Plus, there's also a dedicated portrait mode which uses the two cameras to get a better sense of depth. This is then used to create DSLR-like bokeh - the soft of-out-focus areas in the background of an image.
The OPPO R11 is one of first smartphones to make use of Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 660, which incorporates a Spectra 160 Image Signal Processor, a technology previously exclusive to higher-end chipsets. Qualcomm says this inclusion will result in more natural skin tones, improved lowlight photography, and better power efficiency for smartphones with two rear-facing cameras.
Other key specifications for the OPPO R11 include a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a fingerprint reader on the home button, 64GB of expandable storage, 4GB of RAM, a 20MP selfie camera on the front, and a 2,900mAh battery.
What did we think?
The R11 doesn't make too many departures from past OPPO devices — or for the iPhone, for that matter — but there is one key difference: its very curvy. While the iPhone 7 is rounded, the R11 has heavily tapered edges, giving it a pillowed look. Not only does this make the R11 feel thinner than it is, it's a boon for one-handed usage.
