More details of the OnePlus 11 series are starting to emerge. The latest one is a set of third-party renders of the alleged OnePlus 11 Pro. Although the design could drastically change before the official launch date later this year, these shadowy images hint that OnePlus would bring back two iconic features.


TL;DR

  • OnePlus 11 Pro renders imply return of the classic alert slider.
  • The Hasselblad camera branding is also present.
  • OnePlus' next flagship could be launched at the end of 2022.

Classic feature is here to stay

Courtesy of smartprix and OnLeaks, the OnePlus 11 Pro is shown with the classic alert slider that was heavily missed from the OnePlus 10T. The familiar physical key sits on top of the power button at the right side while volume rocker can be found on the opposite side. In addition, the renders also suggest a curved display with a punch hole camera at the front.

It's on the rear that gets interesting. The camera island features a circular design similar to the Xiaomi 12S Ultra shooter and houses a triple array along with an LED flash. Moreover, the Swedish Hasselblad branding is noticeably present at the center of the module.

Other specs and launch of OnePlus 11 (Pro)

Aside from the murky images, nothing else has been mentioned. But last week it was reported a possible earlier launch date for the flagship device. Furthermore, it was speculated that the Chinese company will favor a high-end Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor rather than opting to MediaTek or having a custom chipset like on Google Pixel 7 or iPhone 14.

A separate report that was published last month indicated that OnePlus is expected to copy the design of Oppo's Find X6 Pro more closely instead of adding distinguishable differences. If this is to be believed, then it is presumed that only the company logo could be changed between two flagships.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.

    I think it's overrated. I currently have a OnePlus 9 pro (for easy LineageMicroG experiments). If you have your apps set up properly--by which I mean almost no app allowed notifications--and you have Do Not Disturb set up to filter your notifications with time and context settings, the alert slider really serves no purpose. The 9 Pro is my current "primary" phone, though I have another for Google oriented tasks.

    Most app notifications aren't in your interest. They're trying to generate views/engagement for revenue. You MUST configure your notifications to serve you. You need to carefully curate who has access to your attention at their demand rather than your demand. The list of people who should have interruption priority in your life should be very small.

    Use starred contacts in conjunction with Do Not Disturb to set up a calling whitelist. Everyone else goes to voice mail. You will not be disturbed by telemarketers ever again. Use a voice mail service that transcribes your messages into email or text notifications. Much faster review of that information at your leisure than the nightmare of using the voice interface.

    Your voice message should direct people about how and when to contact you in other ways, email or text, though don't give them that info in your message. To merit your attention, they should already have that info, or its most likely just noise.

    Most phones now support a face down Do Not Disturb type function as well.

    You need to be on top of your limits though. Turn off do not disturb when you'll be expecting calls from unknown numbers, say a job interview or your mechanic/service person.
