The OnePlus 11 is now available in the Philippines! Flagship killer for only Php 45,990

OnePlus, you’re a few steps to go to be truly in your roots. OxygenOS revamp when?

Titan Black and Eternal Green OnePlus 11 5G

OnePlus Philippines held a physical event today where they invited several content creators (including us) to check out the new OnePlus 11. Heck, they even have Urbandub and the Manila Orchestra to make some sweet soundtrip for the guests. It was a great experience overall.

The Alert Slider is back!

Going back, the phone’s design is similar to the 10T and 10 Pro but with a few differences. First, the camera cutout is now circular and… what’s this? The Alert Slider is back? That’s great news!

By the way, the “Pro” moniker was dropped. It was a useless suffix anyway.

Foreign content creators have already reviewed the device and they saw the phone positively. The phone is noted for its flagship killer characteristics. Something that OnePlus vowed to when they first hit the market. Heck, even the company’s former founder found the phone to be pretty good.

Of course, its cheaper price versus the competition meant some budget cuts. For instance, this phone only carries an IP64 rating and has no wireless charging. Two big features which may set some people off. But for USD 699, what else could you ask for?

Now let’s get on with the specs. It’s a flagship phone, so it comes with a QHD+ (3216x1440px) LTPO3 Fluid AMOLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10+ support, and Dolby Vision. “Fluid AMOLED” is just the company’s fancy way of saying AMOLED.

There are three useful cameras at the back which Carl Pei, one of the co-founders of OnePlus (and now, founded Nothing) noted. It retained the Hasselblad branding embossed at the hump which means it would have its famous colour correction and enhancement. The aforementioned triple camera setup includes the 50MP Sony IMX890 with OIS, a 48MP Sony IMX581 ultrawide, and a 32MP Sony IMX709 telephoto with 2x optical zoom and 48mm focal length. The selfie camera is a 16MP shooter once again located in the far left corner.

As a flagship, it uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset paired with 8 or 12GB LPDDR5X RAM and either 128 or 256GB UFS 4.0 internal storage. Tradition to OnePlus, the phone lacks a MicroSD Card slot and also now has no headphone jack. These updated storage and RAM types allow for faster response, better optimization, and even faster reading and writing of data, even more so than UFS 3.1 storage type.

Globally, the phone has a 5000mAh battery with 100W charging. It’s only in North America where the Wattage was reduced to 80. In the Philippines, users would receive the full 100W experience. As mentioned earlier, it lacks wireless charging due to budget constraints.

It runs OxygenOS 11 based on Android 13. In addition, it has a stereo speaker system with dual mic noise cancellation and Hi-Res audio (wired and wireless) support. One of the best announcements OnePlus made for the phone is its sustainability. You could now keep it for four years and still be updated. Not to mention, you’ll have security updates for five years. This is on par with its competitor, the Galaxy S23 series and close to its other competitor globally, the Google Pixel 7/7 Pro. Only Apple’s iPhones are sustained longer.

In the Philippines, the phone comes in Titan Black or Eternal Green livery. The latter looks similar to the Emerald Green OnePlus 10 Pro. It is priced at Php 45,990 for the 8/128 version and Php 49,990 for the 16/256 one. The pre-order period starts today, February 22nd exclusively on Lazada. First sales start on March 3rd.

The phone still is pretty affordable even with taxes involved. The only thing you lose is wireless charging and the IP rating was slightly toned down (now it only has splash resistance). However, everything else expected from a flagship such as a QuadHD+ screen and camera system, are all intact. Not much sacrifice for its asking price. Remember that the vanilla Galaxy S23 starts at Php 53,990 and you still get a FullHD+ screen and slower charging rates.

And for those who are asking… Is OnePlus back? No, far from it but the phone shows they are stepping in the right direction. So keep this up. Bringing back the fan favourite Alert Slider and keeping prices low is what the company is made for.
