For some years, the high-end of the Chinese brand has changed its connotations, and the next top of the range will be yet another demonstration. The times in which the company launched a few models a year have passed: only in 2022 we had something like 6 devices, with a 10 series orphan of a basic terminal but full of different versions, also considering the passage of the Ace series from OPPO to OnePlus. Despite this crowd, the debut of a flagship is always an event that arouses a lot of curiosity: enough talk and let's find out everything about OnePlus 11 between design, technical specifications, price and market release!
Official OnePlus 11: everything you need to know about the new top of the range
Design and display
Let's start immediately with an important clarification: the new generation only has a top of the range and comes to market as OnePlus 11, without the wording Pro.
Initially there was talk of a ceramic body supported by a metal frame but eventually the device was launched with a glass shell. For the design of the back panel, OnePlus has decided to bring back a photographic form which joins with the side frame, but this time with a section circular to contain the sensors. The whole is inspired by the Black Hole concept, with a chromed stainless steel module.
The colors are in Instant Green and Endless Black shades: the black model has a rough texture in style sandstone while the green version has one shell Glossy.
Below you will find the package contents: the red box features the brand logo and that of Hasselblad while inside we find the device with a black protective cover, the pin for the SIM door, charger, charging cable and a set of stickers.
Moving on to features, the display is one solution AMOLED curve HDR10+ with central punch-hole from 6,7" 2K (3.216 x 1.440 pixels), a solution LTPO 3.0 with dynamic refresh rate from 1 to 120 Hz, 10-bit color depth, up to 1.300 nits brightness, Corning Gorilla Glass protection victims and integrated optical type fingerprint sensor.
stay theAlert Slider, which seems to be confirmed exclusive only to the top of the range by OnePlus. The terminal measures 163,1×74,1×8,53 mm for a weight of 205 grams. We should have a degree of resistance to dust and splash type IP54, then – as happened with OnePlus 10 Pro – we do not find IP68 waterproofing.
Features and technical specifications
The OnePlus 11 spec sheet is based on the Snapdragon 8 Gen2, with TSMC 4 nm manufacturing process, equipped with Kryo octa-core CPU (1 x 3,2 GHz X3 + 4 x 2,8 GHz A715/A710 + 3 x 2,0 GHz A510) and Adreno 740 GPU. Memory side we have cuts from 12 / 16 GB of RAM LPDDR5X e 256 / 512 GB of storage space UFS 4.0 not expandable.
OnePlus has also announced a new proprietary technology dedicated to android memory management, with a new system of reconstruction of the lower layer. In a nutshell, it is a solution that will allow for smooth performance even after years of use with apps and games. In addition, the company has announced a collaboration with Unity which takes the form of the presence of an engine dedicated to frame rate management, the Super Framerate & Super Picture Engine.
The device was first spotted on Geekbench and then on the platform of Antutu: in the second case the benchmarks mark a value of 1.341.080 points (in the 16/512 GB configuration), which is the highest score recorded so far by a flagship with Snap 8 Gen 2. Below we present the scores of some of the top of the moment:
- Xiaomi 13 Pro – 1.293.410
- vivo X90 Pro+ – 1.283.457
- iQOO 11 Pro – 1.333.490
- Nubia Z50 - 1.255.000
- Moto X40 – 1.321.060
For the battery, find space for a dual cell unit 5.000 mAh with wired Warp Charge fast charging increased from 80W to 100W. So we don't have the 150W technology present on board the model 10T, which perhaps we will find on board the future 11R.
The connectivity department includes the new Snapdragon X70 5G modem, as well as Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.3, NFC, GPS / A-GPS / GLONASS / Galileo dual frequency and USB Type-C 3.1. Among the additional specifications we also find stereo speaker Dolby Atmos, vapor chamber dissipation system and the Bionic Haptic Motor, a new X-Axis vibration motor that returns improved haptic feedback. There is also a liquid cooling system with vapor chamber (with a surface area of up to 3685 mm²).
Created in collaboration with AAC Technologies, it boasts vibration adjustment, over 500 vibration effects and two simultaneous vibration types. As for the software, the latest is not missing OxygenOS 13 based on Android 13.
The photographic sector of OnePlus 11 consists of a renewed triple camera in collaboration with Hasselblad. The modules are from 50 + 48 + 32 MP, including the Sony IMX890 primary sensor with OIS, the same one we will find on OPPO FIND X6 PRO. The other modules are a Sony IMX581 ultra-wide-angle lens and a Sony IMX709 telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom and digital 20x; for the selfie camera, then, there is a sensor from 16 MP f/ 2.4.
