Oppo has started to release Android 8.1 Oreo update for its recently launched Oppo R11s flagship. The update makes it one of the handful devices around the world to run the latest Android version. Other than the release, it is also impressive that how fast Oppo has released the update as the device was launched in November with Android 7.1 Nougat.
The update will be bringing all Android 8.1 Oreo goodies to the users which include new emoji and native GIF support in the default Google keyboard. Oppo has added a new gallery feature called Memories which automatically recognizes and categorizes photos on your device on the basis of special places, people, and events. As you would expect, this feature is aimed at helping you relive your best memories without having to spend time finding those particular photos.
The Oppo R11s has also received Dual SIM and Dual VoLTE support with this update. This means that the flagship is now capable of offering VoLTE connectivity on both SIM card slots. This is a good addition as you can now place your VoLTE-enabled SIM card on any SIM card slot and even use two VoLTE-enabled SIM cards. Other changes include improvements to the fitness and weather app for better performance.
It is an OTA update which means you will be receiving a notification automatically once it becomes available for your particular unit. Additionally, you can even check for the update manually by visiting About phone section under Settings.
