It’s not to long ago (sometime in June 2017) when Oppo surprised her fans and the smartphone world with the Oppo R11. That’s less than 2 months. Now, to celebrate her partnership with top European club, FC Barcelona, the Chinese smartphone company have released a special/customized Edition of the Oppo R11 smartphone. And trust me, it is beautiful!
The smartphone will go by the name “Oppo R11 FC Barcelona Edition”. The device was designed in a fashion that resonates the club’s official colours; Red, Blue and Burgundy. The back/rear of the device houses the beautiful club colours as well as the club’s logo at the 3rd quarter of the device. The logo is an 18K gold-plated Barcelona emblem.
Just like the ordinary version of the Oppo R11, the new Oppo R11 FC Barcelona Edition Oppo R11 Barcelona Edition also comes with a 5.5-inch AMOLED Full HD 2.5D curved glass display that is duly protected by the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The display has same 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution. A 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Octa-core processor and an Adreno 512 GPU also powers the FC Barcelona version of the Oppo R11 smartphone.
The dual camera set-up on the rear are 20-megapixels and 16-megapixels shooters which both enjoy a LED flash support. The selfie camera upfront on the other hand is a single 20-megapixels shooter but without LED flash.
Storage-wise, the Oppo R11 Barcelona Edition comes with a huge 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded up to a massive 256GB via a microSD card.

However, despite the numerous similarities shared by the ordinary version and the FC Barcelona Edition of the Oppo R12, there’s a slight downgrade in the battery capacity. The FC Barcelona Edition has a 2,900mAh battery capacity, 100mAh lesser than the ordinary edition which has a 3,000mAh battery.
