The OnePlus 11 will be the next big flagship phone from popular Chinese phone company OnePlus. We’ve been big fans of the OnePlus 10 Pro since 2022, so we’re already looking to the future and guessing what the next version will bring. that.
This will likely be the first OnePlus phone in 2023, but we could see more entries in the company’s Nord line in the meantime. It could be one of the mobile phones, but we’ll have to wait and see.
We haven’t heard a ton of rumors about the OnePlus 11 so far, but we’re starting to hear some whispers. I wrote a wish list.
get to the point
- what is that? 2023 entry for OnePlus’ flagship product line
- When are you coming out? Probably the first few months of 2023
- How much will it cost? Probably just under $899 / £799 (approximately AU$ 1,400)
OnePlus 11 price and availability
Based on precedent, we could see the debut of the OnePlus 11 family in the first few months of this year. previous phone.
However, it is difficult to determine the price. That’s because there wasn’t a “standard” OnePlus 10 priced at premium but not super premium.
So we can guess the OnePlus 11 price. At probably $899 / £799 (about A$1,400), this is how far back the previous model has fallen. Rumor has it that this will actually be a Pro-level handset, although the Pro name will be removed (note the back).
We also got the OnePlus 10T in 2022. It started at $649 / £629 (around AU$940) and it’s not yet clear if the OnePlus 11T will continue.
OnePlus 11 leaks and rumors
For starters, it should be noted that there may only be one OnePlus 11 model, and according to the leak, it could be called the OnePlus 11, but it will have specs like we’d expect from the OnePlus 11 Pro.
That said, other early leaks specifically mention the OnePlus 11 Pro, so the name remains unknown, but you’ll get a pro-grade model whether or not the name includes pro. It’s not very clear if there will be a lower spec model as well, but it seems unlikely.
In any case, leaker @OnLeaks shared a render of what the OnePlus 11 Pro looks like. smart pre (opens in new tab).
These renders (one of which is shown below) show the new (more circular) camera block design. You can also see Hasselblad’s brand and he has three sensors. Other details include an alert slider, and the phone apparently uses the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset.
However, we’re going to add a little salt to this leak, especially since these renders are based on early prototypes of the OnePlus 11 Pro and are subject to change.
The same leaker has since shared the more complete OnePlus 11 Pro specs, and the phone comes with a 6.7-inch QHD+ 120Hz AMOLED screen, up to 16GB of RAM, up to 256GB of storage, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, and 100W charging. 5,000mAh battery.
It is also said to have a 16MP front-facing camera and a triple-lens rear camera with a 50MP main sensor, a 48MP ultra-wide angle, and a 32MP telephoto that offers 2x optical zoom.
More recently, another leak again mentioned 16GB of RAM, while the OnePlus 11 will also have a ceramic finish and will also add upgraded UFS 4.0 storage. That’s significantly faster than the UFS 3.1 tech used in the best phones of 2022.
OnePlus 11: what we want to see
After testing the company’s OnePlus 10 Pro and other handsets, as well as the wider Android world, here are some of the changes it’s bringing to the OnePlus 11.
1. Non-professional version
Is the OnePlus 10 Pro really “Pro” if it doesn’t have the standard version?
Since families only have one phone, OnePlus can only offer phones at certain price tags. This means there is nothing for people looking for a more affordable alternative, or a super-premium version, to buy.
We expect OnePlus 11 to include at least two members of the family, and possibly a third, whether it’s the Lite, Ultra or Pro Plus version.
2. Uncomplicated boot
When a phone manufacturer launches a device with a lot of hype, it can really build excitement for the phone.But with the OnePlus 10 Pro, the exact opposite happened.
The device was originally launched in January, but that was for the Chinese market, and it will go on sale for the global market at MWC 2022 in February, with yet another announcement event in April, and actually was followed by market-specific releases.
This is very confusing for the average buyer, and by the time you can actually buy it, the OnePlus 10 Pro was old news.To avoid waiting months to buy the OnePlus 11, we’ll be doing this whole procedure in 2023. I would like to condense it further into
3. Equal Billing
The OnePlus 10 Pro features 80W fast charging, allowing you to charge your device from 0% to 100% in the same amount of time you watch your favorite sitcom episode.
…that is, unless you live in the United States. The OnePlus 10 Pro there only powers at 65W and is still fast, but not as fast as 80W.
We want the OnePlus 11 charging speeds to be the same so people in the US don’t get inferior phones.
4. Better zoom camera
The OnePlus 10 Pro isn’t the best phone for zoomed photos. The 3.3x telephoto lens allows you to zoom more than similarly priced competitors, but I like looking at ‘Pro’ devices 5x or 10x away (although the latter probably has more of an ‘Ultra’ feature like Thing).
Not so good is the 8MP sensor that comes with this lens. Not only does it have a slightly lower resolution for a smartphone camera, but it also reduces the possibility of digital zooming beyond the optical limits.
With OnePlus 11, we want to focus more on zoom photography and give photographers a chance to shine.
5. Smaller Alternatives
The OnePlus 10 Pro is a big phone that gives you a lot of screen space, so that’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it does make the device harder to hold for people with smaller hands.
If the OnePlus 11 comes in multiple versions, we want one smaller for those who don’t want a giant monster.
We’ve seen Xiaomi make this move with the Xiaomi 12 to offer a smaller handset than what they’ve made before Samsung has been doing it for a while too hopefully OnePlus will follow suit .
