OnePlus is apparently ready to reveal the OnePlus 11 (5G). After teasing the upcoming Android flagship last week, the company has now set sight for the global launch date—and which might not be too far. NextPit tells you when to see the OnePlus 11 alongside details about its specs, pricing, release date, and design.
The OnePlus 11 is expected to follow in the footsteps of the OnePlus 10 Pro in terms of the timing. The latter arrived first in China this January, followed by a global unveiling two months after. That gap is looking to be reduced in 2023.
When will the OnePlus 11 5G be released?
The OnePlus Cloud 11 launch event will be held in New Delhi, India on February 7, 2023. It will be a month earlier compared to the OnePlus 10 Pro's schedule. At the same time, the OnePlus 11 is joined by a slate of OnePlus devices like the rumored OnePlus Buds Pro 2 with spatial audio.
Apart from the date, OnePlus has not disclosed other worthy details including the device's exact release date. However, that shouldn't take a while given the company's strategy. The Cloud 11-bearing event title suggests that OnePlus should bring improvements both in software and hardware, though we're eager to see what it could mean through the actual products.
What to expect from the OnePlus 11: specs, price, features, etc.
OnePlus is introducing back the Hasselblad optics that were ditched from the OnePlus 10T—at least this is what we saw in the teaser clip leaked two days ago. OnePlus could also power the OnePlus 11 with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, 5000 mAh battery, and offer support for VOOC fast charging. Besides the obvious specs, it is tipped the device could benefit from the upgraded 50MP main camera and secondary snappers.
Based on the early renders, the design on OnePlus's 11 is minimal. The back could see the most notable change while the front may see the punch-hole display repositioned the selfie camera to the middle. In addition, the colorways are unchanged with green and black as the two only options. Lastly, the famous alert slider will also see a return, as confirmed by OnePlus on its Community Forum:
This flagship smartphone is set to take the brand’s fast and smooth experience to new heights. The OnePlus 11 5G marks the return of two user-favorite features–the sophisticated Hasselblad imaging that makes photos true to life, and the handy Alert Slider that makes it easy to shift from mode to mode.
As regards the software, there is speculation that OnePlus is matching the premium support of Samsung. If to happen, the OnePlus 11 is getting four major Android upgrades as opposed to the current three couple of five-year security updates.
The pricing of the OnePlus 11 is unknown. It could well sit between the OnePlus 10T ($650) and OnePlus 10 Pro ($800). But we should see how this play out as we head to the launch date. Nonetheless, we want to hear your thoughts on how much the OnePlus 11 will cost.
