On its home turf, OnePlus has been teasing its upcoming flagship device, which now has an official release date.
The OnePlus 11 was hinted to in a recent Weibo tweet, and its debut date of January 4, 2023 was also mentioned. The introduction will begin in China, just like the launch of the preceding model. In addition, as previously said, the global launch, which will include the U.K. and the Indian market, will occur in February.
Thanks to earlier leaked models, we very much know what the next flagship from OnePlus will look like, and they pretty much match what the company has revealed in the teaser video and pictures on its Weibo account. The camera module, which has a triple camera arrangement and now has a circular form factor, is the main improvement over the previous generation.
The business is continuing to use Hasselblad-powered cameras, just as the OnePlus 10 Pro. However, the new camera module merges in perfectly with the metal body of the gadget, maintaining the distinctive design language that we first saw in the Galaxy S21 Ultra and other gadgets.
The iconic alert slider, or the “return of an icon,” as OnePlus calls it, is making a comeback and was nicely depicted in the teaser video that OnePlus posted. Since the introduction of the original OnePlus smartphone, the alert slider has played a vital role in OnePlus phones and is a favourite among the OnePlus community.
Once more, this is not unexpected because earlier renders showed the new alert slider near to an IR blaster, the first from a OnePlus product. Nevertheless, it is encouraging to see the OEM maker announce what it would offer with the following flagship rather than leaving it to us to speculate on the features.
Speaking of anticipation, the other anticipated characteristics suggest a ceramic body with a matte finish based on past rumours. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC with up to 16GB of RAM will power the phone. It will include UFS 4.0 storage and LPDDR5X, according to OnePlus. We also anticipate a big 6.7-inch display with a 120Hz refresh rate and QHD+ resolution.
The triple lenses on the back should have a 50MP primary lens, a 48MP ultra wide-angle camera, and a 32MP telephoto sensor as part of their optics. The gadget should include a respectable 5000mAh battery and compatibility for OnePlus’ proprietary 100W fast charging.
It is encouraging to see flagships like the OnePlus 11 entering the market at the beginning of 2019. Though it is yet unknown if OnePlus would release further versions alongside the OnePlus 11.
