As you can imagine, the R11s shares a lot of things with the R11. It also has a lot more to offer, particularly with its large 6.01-inch Full HD AMOLED that comes with Fullview display. Larger screen but with more pixels on-screen, resulted in the same pixel count with the R11 that has a smaller screen with lesser pixels on-screen.

In terms of performance, here’s where the R11s has exactly the same hardware. This means you can get great medium-high performance out of it. Amazing enough for your daily use and some gaming being thrown at it in between.

The best part about the R11s has to be on its camera aspect of it. With an amazing dual 20MP+16MP primary camera found on it, you can go ahead out there and capture some of the finest shots. You also get to play with the bokeh effect and amaze yourself at what it can do. For those selfie lovers, you are also in luck as it is sporting a 16MP selfie camera. Your selfies will also turn out to be in great shape.

The selfie camera also benefits from a built-in AI to enhance all your selfies. This is done by collecting data points such as age, skin tone, and facial structure; which then allows the camera to automatically capture the best selfie every time. It also encourages you to experience the power of the facial recognition system, which claims that it can unlock the smartphone in just 0.08 seconds.

Talking about having fun, the R11s comes with 64GB of internal storage which is more than enough for you to install all your favorite apps and games. Should you need more space, you can do so up to a maximum of 256GB via the expansion slot.

By virtue of having a larger screen, R11s also needs a bigger battery capacity. Here’s where the 3200 mAh battery will come in handy, as it has the necessary juice to last it for a full day.
