Numerous new renders depicting what's believed to be the OPPO R11s appeared online earlier today, having originally been sighted on Chinese social media platform Weibo. The images that can be seen in the gallery below show three variants of the OPPO R11s – red, black, and what appears to be rose gold. The handset is seen as featuring an edge-to-edge screen with a tall aspect ratio of 18:9, i.e. 2:1. The top and bottom bezel of the supposed OPPO R11s appear to be fairly minimal and aren't large enough to accommodate a regularly sized physical Home button like the one that was seen on the OPPO R11 and doubled as a fingerprint reader. Instead, the OPPO R11s seemingly features a fingerprint scanner on its rear panel, with the module itself boasting a shape that's more oval than circular. The back side of the device also houses a dual-camera setup entailing two horizontally arranged sensors in its top left corner, with a dual-LED (dual-tone) flash unit being positioned to the right of the main imaging module.
The overall design of the OPPO R11s was already revealed by the Chinese original equipment manufacturer that's been aggressively teasing the device in recent weeks, with its latest pair of promotional posters all but confirming that the renders below are an accurate depiction of how its upcoming Android-powered smartphone will look like. The handset appears to have a single front-facing camera which will reportedly be a 20-megapixel unit situated behind a lens with an aperture of f/2.0, thus being identical to the secondary imaging module of the OPPO R11. Save for a more contemporary design with smaller bezels and a new image format, the OPPO R11s isn't expected to be a major upgrade over its predecessor which proved to be a popular offering in some Asian markets.
The OPPO R11s is set to be officially announced on November 2nd in China and will likely be available in more countries by the end of the year. Some international resellers like GearBest may also start retailing the selfie-centric Android mid-ranger by this year's holiday season, though it remains to be seen what kind of a price tag will the Chinese phone maker attach to its latest mobile device.
