And some other things like the Buds Pro 2
OnePlus announced an event earlier than expected. On February 7, OnePlus will launch an event called Cloud 11, and based on the teaser image, the next flagship phone, the OnePlus 11 5G is expected. Other accessories like the Buds Pro 2 are also said to launch on the same date. The even will be held in New Delhi, India.
According to rumor information we have collected, the OnePlus 11 will feature a circular camera hump. Its overall design language is kept from the OnePlus 9 Pro. The phone will also bear Hasselblad branding so expect colour calibration modification on OnePlus’ native camera app. The rumored renders match that of the official teaser image as well as OnePlus’ video teaser, so the specs are mostly accurate.
In terms of its display, the phone has a 6.7in. AMOLED screen with QHD+ resolution and will feature a Bionic vibration motor so users can customize the level of haptic feedback they want with their phone. The fan-favourite Alert Slider is also back.
As a flagship, it will be using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset with up to 16GB RAM and 512GB storage. The primary camera is a 50MP Sony IMX80 with OIS, paired with a 48MP Sony IMX581 ultrawide, and a 32MP Sony IMX709 telephoto with 2x optical zoom. All of these cameras are fully functional, unlike on what’s seen with some lower-end phones. (Also, periscope cameras don’t sell well enough sadly).
Powering the phone is a 5000mAh battery with 100W fast charging (dare I say, Oppo’s SuperVOOC). It will use OxygenOS (with a heavy feel of ColorOS unfortunately) based on Android 13. Colours include Volcanic Black and Forest Emerald.
As for the Buds Pro 2, the company promises a stereophonic, richer quality sound with crystal-clear clarity versus its predecessor.
To recall, the company just had its 9th anniversary last December 14th and the anniversary celebrates OnePlus’ pinnacle collaboration platform: Co-creation. To give you an idea what this is all about, OnePlus is collaborating with KeyChron to manufacture the company’s first-ever mechanical keyboard. More collaborative products are expected in the following years.
