This leak, which comes from Elon Musk’s Twitter feed, paints a rather complete picture of what the OnePlus 11 will have to offer. Yogesh Brar (@heyitsyogesh), who has a good history of spilling the beans regarding upcoming devices, is the source of the most recent rumor.
Leaked images show the OnePlus 11 with a 2K (1440p) OLED display that spans 6.7 inches across and supports a refresh rate of up to 120Hz (though the OnePlus 11 Pro may be capable of even lower refresh rates).
Powering the OnePlus 11 will be the fresh and hot Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, which was declared just the other day. TSMC’s 4nm manufacturing node (currently superior to Samsung’s) provides a 25% faster processor speed and 45 percent better battery efficiency than Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. It is also based on the same 4nm manufacturing node as Apple’s A16 Bionic. A prime core runs at 3.2GHz on the chip (though Samsung gets an exclusive 3.32GHz on the Galaxy S23), four performance cores run at 2.8GHz, and three efficiency cores run at 2.0GHz.
Memory-wise, Yogesh Brar has it that the OnePlus 11 will have both an 8 and a 12GB RAM version, as well as either 128 or 256GB of storage, pretty standard stuff on Android flagships these days.
Hasselblad’s appealing branding will return for the camera system, which offers three cameras: a 50MP sensor, a 48MP ultra-wide sensor, and an unspecified 32MP telephoto sensor. At the front, there could be a sharp 32MP selfie snapper, quite the impressive shooter!
The 5,000mAh battery will be the source of power and will be rechargeable with up to 100W wired and 50W wireless, allowing you to get a full charge within 30 minutes (that’s pretty quick). In addition to Android 13, OnePlus will ship the OnePlus 11 with OxygenOS 13.
Here are all the rumored specs, summarized:
6.7″ 2K LTPO, 120Hz
Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
Rear Cam: 50MP (IMX890) + 48MP (UW) + 32MP
Front Cam: 32MP
Android 13, OxygenOS 13
100W wired, 50W wireless charging
OnePlus 11, but not Pro
As you’ve probably heard already, OnePlus could be dropping the “Pro” moniker from its next flagship phone, sticking to the tried-and-tested one flagship every six months formula. Make no mistake, the possibility of a OnePlus 11 Pro is probably still out there, but the majority of leakers and insiders agree that we might not see two flagships next year.
As a quick brain exercise, what features could a possible OnePlus 11 Pro improve from the “base” OnePlus 11?
Based on the specs listed above, we’re looking at a fairly standard “entry-level” flagship phone that should make the OnePlus 11 Pro seem even more appealing. Hardware can absolutely improve the latter in some key areas. There could be problems with the camera setting, the memory, and the charging speed.
We expect the OnePlus 11 Pro to be available with up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB of onboard storage. Compared to the OnePlus 11, the Sony IMX989 sensor could make a significant difference in the camera performance of the more premium flagship, which could also feature a longer telephoto lens or even a periscope lens. The OnePlus 11 Pro can score 150W SuperVOOC charging while the OnePlus 10T tops out at around 23 minutes (19 minutes ad).
In the spring, OnePlus usually announces and releases its products, so we expect both the OnePlus 11 Pro and OnePlus 11 to be announced and released. In usual OnePlus fashion, the OnePlus 11 family is expected to be released by late March or early April.
It doesn’t sound like Yogesh Brar throws any hints at a price yet, but we believe the OnePlus 11 Pro will start around $899, while the OnePlus 11 might be less, possibly $799.
