OPPO will release its fullscreen mobile phone, the OPPO R11s, at a press conference on November 2. The company has gone through several rounds of promotion, unveiling the handset’s appearance, features and more. The biggest remaining mystery is its price.
Days ago, an industry insider whose Weibo is @KevinWangDiary, wrote, “Going by the supply chain, there have been 10 million OPPO R11s ordered by suppliers and the official photos are released. We just need to wait for OPPO to publish the price at its press conference. I expect it will be 2,999 yuan.” The inventory status suggests OPPO expects promising sales of the OPPO R11s.
Sanoo Statistics said the OPPO R11, the phone’s last generation, has been the most popular mobile phone in the 2,500 to 3,000 yuan price range since its launch in June. It could be considered a bestseller. The number of R11 phones available in the first batch may have been as few as 2 million. OPPO R11s is expected to replace the OPPO R11 as OPPO’s top selling mobile phone.
IT Home reported the OPPO R11s will have a 6.01 inch screen in the 18:9 aspect ratio. It also has a more interactive design and comfortable feel. The red OPPO R11s also features a special fullscreen design – its “star-like screen”(星幕屏).
The OPPO R11s has new 20 megapixel and 16 megapixel cameras, which offer a double f/1.7 aperture. The software can automatically identify lighting conditions and switch the main camera. The front 20 megapixel camera supports AI smart beautifying and can recognize gender, age, skin color, and skin condition by reading 254 facial features.
The OPPO R11s will come in three colors: red, black, and champagne. The OPPO R11s will be released on November 2, and IT Home will have a new report after the event.
