A set of recently surfaced Oppo A11s renders have given us a glimpse of the phone’s design and a slew of other details. The word on the street is that the Chinese consumer electronics company has been gearing up to unveil new devices this year. The company is reportedly planning to launch a new tablet dubbed, the Oppo Pad along with the Reno7 series smartphones. Popular leaker Digital Chat Station shared this piece of information recently on Weibo.
Aside from that, the company has confirmed that it will be announcing the Color OS 12 soon, revealing a timeline of when the new UI could be made available. Taking to its official Weibo account, Oppo confirmed that the Color OS 12 will start rolling out to compatible devices starting from mid-to-late September. On top of that, the company’s digital assistant has indicated that the Color OS 12 will be available starting 3 PM China time on September 13 this year. Despite having its hands full, it seems that Oppo is working on another smartphone to be released this year.
Oppo A11s Renders Reveal Key Details
Taking to his Twitter account on September 8, noted leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks) shared Oppo A11s renders that reveal the phone’s design and color options. In other words, the company could be on the verge of launching a new A-series smartphone. If the leaked renders are anything to go by, the purported A11s smartphone will sport a punch-hole display. An earpiece can be seen on the top bezel, and the bottom bezel is quite notable as well.

Furthermore, the left edge seems to house the volume buttons. Likewise, the right edge accommodates the power button. The rear panel seems to be made using polycarbonate material. There is a rectangular camera module at the back. The camera setup comprises three cameras along with an LED flash. Aside from that, the fingerprint scanner is visible on the back. Moreover, the leaked render suggests that the A11s will be available in two color options including black and white.
Launch Date, Availability & Price
The screen has Chinese text that hints at the phone’s imminent launch in China. However, details about its availability in other markets are scarce. Also, the renders did not divulge key specifications of the handset. Considering that the A11s will be launched under the A11 series, the new Oppo phone is unlikely to launch in India. The original Oppo A11 will not be seeing the light of the day in the country, according to 91mobiles. Last month, Oppo PEYM00 and Oppo PECM20 passed through China’s TENAA authority. According to earlier reports, the Oppo PEYM00 will be made available in China as the Oppo K90 Pro.
The PECM20 model, on the other hand, could be an affordable 5G-enabled handset. Regrettably, its moniker is still unconfirmed. As if that weren’t enough, the Chinese tech company could unveil a smartphone with Dimensity 810 chipset under the hood later this month. The handset is tipped to sport a 6.5-inch LCD display with a 90Hz refresh rate, and feature a 16MP front shooter. The device could house 48MP triple rear cameras. Other notable features include a 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging support and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
