Oppo has always been a champion of pushing the limits of smartphone photography. Their March models, the F3 and F3 Plus, debuted dual front cameras (a 16MP + 8MP combo) with enough computational photography software to shoot professional-looking auto portraits. The vision of taking selfies to the next level hasn’t gone anywhere. In fact, the next phones, the R11 and R11 Plus, are said to focus on the camera module more than ever, boasting a 20MP front cam with equally impressive dual rear cameras #mobilemagic
The world’s best selling Android phone manufacturer continues to grace their mid-range devices with powerful specs. R11 and its Plus variant are expected on June 10 with flagship-worthy features. Most of those will be felt in the camera area. R11 and R11 Plus are rumored to launch with a 16MP + 20MP rear camera setup and a 20MP front camera. The back camera is going to come with a 2X lossless optical zoom and enable a professional portrait mode. This mode most likely means you’ll be able to get the trendy Bokeh effect other phones offer, thanks to the depth-optimized camera.
It’s the first time we see such an outstanding camera combo on an Oppo phone. The former R9s and R9s Plus not only lacked a dual camera module but carried just a 16MP front sensor. Meanwhile, the F3 and F3 Plus boasted a 16MP + 8MP dual front camera, while the rear cam made it up to 16MP sensor. These new phones could be the best alternative yet for those of you who want great selfies – the phones are bound to come with FotoNation‘s Beautification solution – but also a powerful tool for landscapes and portraits. Rumor is Oppo used a learning algorithm to enhance the image quality on the rear cameras.
What else to expect from the brand who owns the Android market? Well, both phones are going to run Android 7.1.1 Nougat with Oppo’s skin on top. They’ll sport Snapdragon 660 SoC (we’re not talking about flagship phones, remember), 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. R11 will be equipped with a 3,000mAh battery while the bigger version, Plus, will come with a 4,000mAh battery. The display will also differ, naturally, Plus going for a 6-inch size and the standard model stopping at a 5.5-inch screen.
