OnePlus today has launched its OnePlus 11 flagship for the Chinese market, ahead of the smartphone’s global debut that’s scheduled next month on 7 February 2023. As you may recall, both the design and specifications of the device was leaked months prior by reputable tech insider OnLeaks, which have turned out to be pretty accurate after all.
Much like what was leaked from before, the new OnePlus 11 is shown to sport an all-new design for its rear panel, which now features a circular island for the rear triple camera setup. Meanwhile, in front is a flat 6.7-inch LTPO 3.0 AMOLED display with 1440 x 3216 pixel resolution, up to 120 Hz adaptive refresh rate, 1300 nits peak brightness, as well as featuring Dolby Vision and HDR10+ support.
Also onboard is an under-display fingerprint scanner, stereo speakers, and a USB-C port for charging and data transfer. Fans will also be delighted to know that the alert slider makes a return on this particular model after missing out on last year’s OnePlus 10T. In terms of colour selection, the OnePlus 11 is offered in Green and Black options.
To no one’s surprise, equipped on the brand’s new smartphone is the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 flagship chipset, which is paired together with up to 16 GB of LPDDR5X RAM and up to 512 GB of UFS 4.0 storage. The battery of the OnePlus 11 packs a 5,000 mAh capacity with 100 W fast charging support, though there’s no wireless charging capability. Besides that, the phone also features Android 13 via ColorOS 13 (OxygenOS 13 for the global market), an X-axis vibration motor, as well as support for NFC, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity.
Imaging-wise, housed within the aforementioned circular island is a triple camera setup consisting of a Sony IMX890 50 MP primary sensor, a Sony IMX581 48 MP ultrawide, and a Sony IMX709 32 MP telephoto with 2x optical zooming capability. Found in front, on the other hand, is a 16 MP selfie camera that’s situated in the punch-hole cutout on the phone’s display.
In China, the new OnePlus 11 is slated to go on sale on 9 January 2023 at a starting price of CNY 3,999 (~RM 2,557) for the 12 GB + 246 GB configuration. And just in case you’re wondering, this particular model will not have a Pro variant like its predecessors.
