The OnePlus 11, formally launched on January 4th, 2023, in China, can be the official flagship phone of the year. However, the global launch is still awaited. Therefore, Techiliate has collected everything you need to know about the soon-to-launch Onelpus 11 series.
The first modification that grabs attention is the name. The “Pro” designation that was used on the previous OnePlus flagship is now removed and is simply denoted with “OnePlus 11.” The most powerful Android chip, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, is at the top of the list of highlights. It can be paired with up to 16GB of RAM, and the phone features a triple camera system with Hasselblad branding showing some promising updates.
OnePlus 11 Release & Price
The OnePlus 11 will go on sale worldwide on February 7th after being officially unveiled in China on January 4th. In the US, the smartphone will be available for sale from the aforementioned date onwards.
In addition, the speculated price is set to around $899 (global price). Although this is not the actual price, we do have some expectations. Based on the specifications and OnePlus’ past, we may anticipate that the base OnePlus 11 model will cost approximately (if not exactly) $899.
Previously, the OnePlus 8 Pro started at $899, followed by the OnePlus 9 Pro, which increased slightly to $969, until the OnePlus 10 Pro returned to the $899 price range. Therefore, it is still possible that the price will stay that way.
Design and Camera of OnePlus 11
OnePlus always had its way with cameras, and for that, there is a triple camera setup.
The OnePlus 11 packs the following camera specs:
- 50MP main camera, Sony IMX890 sensor, f/1.8 aperture
- 48MP ultra-wide, Sony IMX581 sensor
- 32MP 2X zoom lens, Sony IMX709 sensor
- 16MP front cam, ISOCELL 3P9 (S5K3P9) sensor
The primary and ultra-wide cameras are pretty standard, but a 2X zoom lens is a bit unexpected. However, it’s a good addition; a 50mm approximate field of view is provided by 2X, which is ideal for portrait photography. Furthermore, it is near to what the human eye sees. The long-range zoom will not be as good as on other flagships, though, because it only has a 2X lens.
Display of OnePlus 11
Based on the official unveiling event, OnePlus claims that the OnePlus 11’s display is a 6.7″ curved 1440p OLED display with wide color spectrum coverage and a variable refresh rate of up to 120Hz. Furthermore, on the front of the phone, there is a hole punch selfie camera that resembles the one on the OnePlus 10 Pro quite a bit. The side-facing camera signals that OnePlus is utilizing the Samsung E4 OLED panel. It’s not the most recent screen technology (that would be the E6 OLED with a center punch hole), and this again suggests that the OnePlus 11 will be more affordable than iPhones and Galaxy devices.
OnePlus 11 Color
The color options for the OnePlus 11 are very different from one another, both in terms of appearance and feel. Those two colors are green and black. According to OnePlus, the green option has a smooth and glossy glass back, while the black version has a more matte and reflective appearance. Additionally, OnePlus guarantees that the latter will be fingerprint-free.
OnePlus 11 Specs
Taking from the official announcement, we know that the OnePlus 11 will have the following specs:
- Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset
- Qualcomm Snapdragon X70 5G modem
- 6.7-inch 1440p 120Hz OLED display with wide color gamut coverage
- 50 MP, f/1.6, 1/1.3″, PDAF, Laser AF, OIS main camera
- 48 MP, f/2.2, 114˚, 1/2.0″, AF ultrawide camera
- 32MP 2x telephoto zoom camera
- 16MP selfie camera
- 12GB/256GB, 16GB/256GB, 16GB/512GB memory combos
- 5000mAh battery
- 100W charger
From those specs, the OnePlus 11 is shaping up to be an impressive flagship, with a huge battery and lightning-fast 100W charging.
The battery of the OnePlus 11
The OnePlus 11’s battery is a sizable 5,000mAh one, which has recently become the norm for Android flagship phones. Furthermore, the battery on the OnePlus 10 Pro, which replaced the 4500mAh one on the 9 Pro, also has a capacity of 5,000mAh.
The 10 Pro lasted nearly 11 hours of nonstop video streaming throughout our tests. It took even longer to complete our web browsing test—13 and a half hours—and our 3D gaming test—just over 9 hours—was shorter than usual but still a considerable time.
