The OnePlus 11 was formally unveiled in its native Chinese market before making its debut in other markets on February 7. The phone is a full-fledged flagship with the most cutting-edge CPU, RAM, and cameras even if the word “Pro” is missing from its moniker.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC will operate at its full potential, according to OnePlus officials who stated this on stage. Normally, it wouldn’t be a remarkable observation, but it may mean that OnePlus is no longer throttling performance to extend battery life and control temperatures.
The phone has 256GB or 512GB of UFS 4.0 storage and 12GB or 16GB of the most recent LPDDR5X RAM.
A brand-new 6.7″ LTPO 3.0 AMOLED screen with 1440p resolution serves as the centrepiece of the OnePlus 11. With over 100 apps promising to enable the granular adjustment, it can refresh at refresh rates ranging from 1Hz to 120Hz.
On the rear of the OnePlus 11, a 50MP primary Sony IMX890 sensor with multidirectional PDAF and OIS has replaced the Hasselblad camera. There are two cameras: a 32MP Sony IMX709 2x telephoto camera and a 48MP Sony IMX581 autofocus ultrawide-angle camera that may be used as a macro camera.
A punch hole in the upper left corner houses the 16MP selfie camera.
The Oppo Find N2’s camera configuration appears to be exactly the same, but this is not surprising given that both companies just announced a new strategic alliance. After reviewing it, we found its performance to be pretty excellent, and with the more recent Snapdragon chip, it may perform even better.
Like its predecessor, the OnePlus 11’s battery features a 5,000mAh capacity. This time, though, the wired charging speed can exceed 100W. Wireless charging is not an option, though.
The X-axis vibration motor, which measures 602 cu. mm and is the largest smartphone vibration motor to date, will be appreciated by gamers.
The OnePlus 11 is being released in China with Color OS 13 pre-installed on top of Android 13. Additionally, it suggests that pre-orders have already begun for sales on the Oppo Store and at independent merchants. On Monday, January 9, the genuine sales start.
The phone is available in two colours: Green and Black. The former features a glass back panel, while the latter has a sandstone-like texture. Prices for the 12/256GB version are CNY3,999 ($580/€545), the medium 16/256GB version is CNY4,399 ($640/€600), and the top 16/512GB version is CNY4,899 ($710/€670).
