The OnePlus 11 will be the next big flagship phone from the famous Chinese phone company OnePlus, and because we were fans of this phone. OnePlus 10 Pro Starting in 2022, we’re already looking ahead and anticipating what the next release will bring.
This will likely be the first OnePlus phone for 2023, though we may see more entries to the company’s Nord line in the meantime. It’s also likely one of the best Android phones of the year, judging by the last few entries in the family, though we’ll need to wait and watch.
We haven’t heard a huge number of rumors about the OnePlus 11 yet, but we’re starting to hear some whispers. You’ll find all the leaks and rumors below, and then under that we wrote a wish list of what we want from these phones.
cut to the chase
- What is this? 2023 entry in OnePlus’ flagship line
- When is the exit? Likely the first few months of 2023
- How much will it cost? Probably just under $899 / £799 (about AU$1,400)
OnePlus 11 price and availability
Going by precedent, we’ll likely see the debut of the OnePlus 11 family in the first few months of the year — perhaps swinging by region, like the OnePlus 10 Pro, but hopefully one big launch event, as has been the case for the company’s previous phones.
It’s hard to judge the price, and that’s because there was no ‘standard’ OnePlus 10, priced excellent but not premium.
So we can make a good guess at the OnePlus 11’s price – it’ll likely cost around $899 / £799 (about AU$1,400), which is how much its predecessor set you back. Rumor has it that while the Pro name will be ditched, this will actually be the Pro-level phone (continued on the back).
We also got OnePlus 10T in 2022, which started at $649 / £629 (about AU$940), but as of now it’s not clear if the OnePlus 11T will follow.
OnePlus 11 leaks and rumors
First, it should be noted that there may only be one OnePlus 11 model, and this is it According to the leak It might be called the OnePlus 11 — but you’ve got the kind of specs you’d expect from the OnePlus 11 Pro.
However, other early leaks refer specifically to the OnePlus 11 Pro, so the naming remains uncertain, but it looks like we will be getting a Pro model, whether or not it has a Pro name. Whether there will be a model with lower specs is less clear, but it doesn’t seem very likely.
Anyway, leaker @OnLeaks has shared renders of what the OnePlus 11 Pro might look like, in collaboration with SMART Award (Opens in a new tab).
These renders, one of which you can see below, show a new — more circular — design for the camera block. You can also see that there is a Hasselblad branding and three sensors. Other details include an alert slider, and the phone will apparently use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, which is something we were totally expecting anyway.
However, we’re taking this leak with a pinch of salt, especially since these renders are apparently based on an early OnePlus 11 Pro prototype, so it may be subject to change.
Since then, the same leak has been shared OnePlus 11 Pro specifications are more completesaying that the phone will feature a 6.7-inch QHD+ 120Hz AMOLED display, up to 16GB of RAM, up to 256GB of storage, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, and a 5,000mAh battery with 100W charging.
It is also said to have a 16MP front camera, a triple-lens rear camera with a 50MP main sensor, a 48MP ultra-wide camera, and a 32MP telephoto camera that offers 2x optical zoom.
at recent days, Another leak He again mentioned 16GB of RAM, adding that the OnePlus 11 will also have a ceramic look, as well as upgraded UFS 4.0 storage — much faster than the UFS 3.1 technology used in the best phones of 2022.
OnePlus 11: what we want to see
After testing the OnePlus 10 Pro and other phones from the company, and the wider Android world, here are a few changes we want the OnePlus 11 to bring.
1. Non-professional version
Is the OnePlus 10 Pro really “Pro” if there is no standard edition? No, not really, we’d say — but for some reason, OnePlus’ only flagship phone for 2022 was this later.
Since there is only one phone in the family, OnePlus can only release a phone at a certain price. This means that people who want an affordable alternative, or a premium version, don’t have anything to buy.
We’d like to see the OnePlus 11 come with at least two members of the family, and possibly a third as well – be it a Lite, Ultra or Pro Plus version.
2. Less complicated launch
When phone makers release their devices with a lot of pomp and fanfare, it can really lead to mobile excitement…but the exact opposite happened with the OnePlus 10 Pro.
The device was originally launched in January, but that was only for the Chinese market — it was launched for the global market in February at MWC 2022then saw another unveiling in April, which was, in fact, followed by a release for some markets.
This is very confusing for the average buyer and means that by the time it was actually available for purchase, the OnePlus 10 Pro was old news. We’d like this whole action to ramp up in 2023, so we’re not waiting months to buy the OnePlus 11.
3- Equal litigation
The OnePlus 10 Pro has 80W fast charging, ensuring that the device goes from 0% to 100% in the same time as it takes you to watch an episode of your favorite sit-com…
…that is unless you live in the US. The OnePlus 10 Pro only has 65W of power, which is still fast, but certainly not as fast as 80W.
We’d like charging speeds to be on par with the OnePlus 11, so people in the US don’t get an inferior phone.
4. Best Zoom Camera
The OnePlus 10 Pro isn’t the best phone for telephoto shooting — although its 3.3x telephoto lens lets you zoom in further than some similarly priced competitors, we’d love to see “Pro” devices that give you 5x or even 10x (though maybe the latter It is more of an “Ultra” feature).
What’s not so great is the 8MP sensor that accompanies this lens — not only is it a bit low-resolution for a smartphone camera, but it reduces the digital zoom potential beyond the optical limit.
We’d like to see more focus on zoom photography in the OnePlus 11, to give photographers a chance to shine.
5. A smaller alternative
The OnePlus 10 Pro is a big phone, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as you get plenty of screen real estate — but it does make the device difficult to hold for people with small hands.
If the OnePlus 11 comes with multiple versions like we’d already like, we’d like one of them to be smaller, to cater to people who don’t want a giant monster.
We’ve seen Xiaomi make this move with Xiaomi 12, offering a smaller phone than it’s made previously, and Samsung’s been doing it for a while, too. We hope, then, that OnePlus will follow suit.
