Oppo R11 and R11 Plus were unveiled in June, but the two are only available in China and Taiwan.
A month later, Oppo has not said a word on the phones’ availability in other markets across the globe, but according to a listing on Wi-Fi Alliance, it’s evident that the Oppo R11 will soon be coming to a shop near you.
The certification body has just cleared the Oppo R11, which is also known as Oppo CPH1707, an indicator that markets where the company sells its products will soon be receiving the phone. Oppo phones are usually sold in Asian countries as well as Europe and Africa and if this Wi-Fi listing is anything to go by, fans in these markets will soon be able to get their hands on the camera-centric smartphone.
While the WFA has cleared the standard Oppo R11, there’s no word on whether the R11 Plus will follow its smaller sibling in other countries. But even if it doesn’t, there won’t be much to miss out on given that the only major differences between the two are the bigger display size (6-inch), more RAM (6GB) and a bigger battery (4000mAh) on the R11 Plus. As for the rest of the specs, they remain unchanged.
Buyers of the Oppo R11 will get a phone with a similar build to the iPhone 7 Plus and OnePlus 5. The screen size is also the same at 5.5 inches and 1080p resolution, but the processor on board is a powerful midranger in the shape of Snapdragon 660 mated with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The main camera has a dual 20MP+16MP sensor while the front has a 20MP shooter for selfies.
Keeping the lights on is a 3000mAh battery unit that supports fast charging technology and for the software, you get the latest Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box.
In China, the Oppo R11 sells for about $440, which could the same price tag when the phone hits other markets across the globe.
