Today the second smartphone manufacturer in China released a new phone based on the much-popular R11s as the best New Year gift. The Oppo R11S Star Screen New Year Edition has got a few appearance changes, but the hardware remains the same. However, this is the highest variant of the company’s current flagship, and it’s priced at 3199 yuan ($483) only. It will become available for purchase starting December 25.
The only changes have been made on the back. The Oppo R11S Star Screen New Year Edition comes with a unique full-screen, as the name suggests. But the company has also cooperated with the world’s leading luxury suppliers in the mobile phone industry to come in with a small 18K gold-plated Lucky Dog Zodiac symbol made of new materials and processes. Its diameter is 4.95mm and it has a three-dimensional appearance.
As we said, the hardware is identical what you can find on the regular model. Thus the phone sports a 6.01-inch full-screen Snapdragon 660 chip, 4+64GB memory combination, 20MP front shooter, 20+16MP rear camera, and a battery capacity of 3205mAh. As for the system, the Oppo R11S Star Screen New Year Edition comes with a Christmas-style UI mainly with red color icons and design elements.
At last, the Oppo R11S Star Screen New Year Edition box includes many gifts such postcards, a shell, and other accessories making it one of the most-desired Christmas gifts.
This is already the second case when we see a redesigned New Year variant of a full-screen flagship made by a Chinese manufacturer. As you remember the VIVO X20 with the same coloring and purpose has been launched a few days back. As they belong to the same holding, BBK Electronics, we are waiting to see something like them coming our way from OnePlus.
