Chinese smartphone maker Oppo has sent out invites to a media event on the 8th of August, where it is expected to announce a new FC Barcelona Edition of the R11. While the press invite doesn’t actually reveal any details, we can clearly see the Oppo and FC Barcelona logos on the top right of the invite.
Last year, Oppo announced the R9 FC Barcelona Edition, celebrating its sponsorship agreement with FC Barcelona. A few other devices from manufacturer’s lineup also received the FC Barcelona Edition treatment after the R9 FC Barcelona Edition was made official.
Similar to the Oppo R9 FC Barcelona Edition from last year, we expect the Oppo R11 FC Barcelona Edition is expected to feature a different color scheme as well as some new design highlights to differentiate it from the regular R11. Apart from the changes outside, the internals are likely to be identical to the regular R11. However, a new R11 variant was recently spotted on the Geekbench database, packing the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core SoC and 6GB of RAM. The regular R11 on sale in a few markets around the world currently runs on the Snapdragon 660 octa-core chipset and includes 4GB of RAM.
Even if the R11 FCB Edition ends up being powered by the Snapdragon 835 SoC, the rest of the key specs will still be identical to the regular R11. The R11 features a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with 1080 x 1920 Full HD resolution. It comes with 64GB of internal storage, which is sadly not expandable further. One of its key highlights is the dual-camera setup at the rear, with a 16MP primary sensor paired with an f/1.7 aperture lens and a secondary 20MP sensor with an f/2.6 aperture lens. On the front is a 20MP selfie snapper coupled with an f/2.0 aperture lens. Other key hardware specs include a 2900mAh capacity battery with VOOC Flash Charge fast charging and a fingerprint scanner embedded inside the physical home button on the front.
