OnePlus 11 with Snapdragon 8 Gen2 and 100W charging launched in China
Chinese smartphone maker, OnePlus, on Wednesday announced the release of its latest flagship Android smartphone, the OnePlus 11, in its home market of China. The device will be available for purchase starting January 9.
As a flagship device, the new OnePlus 11 will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, which the company has claimed will operate at maximum capacity. This means users can expect maximum performance from the device while doing intensive tasks like gaming, for example, without worrying about thermal throttling issues.
The phone also includes 12 or 16 GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 256 or 512 GB of UFS 4.0 fast storage.
The device boasts a 6.7-inch LTPO 3.0 AMOLED display with a 1440p resolution, which supports variable refresh at a rate of up to 120Hz. The display has a pixel density of 525 PPI and can reach a peak brightness of 1300nits.
The device comes with a triple-camera setup on the rear including a 50 MP main Sony IMX890 camera sensor with multidirectional PDAF and OIS. There is also a 48 MP ultrawide-angle Sony IMX581 camera and a 32 MP Sony IMX709 2x telephoto camera to complete the triple-camera setup. The front-facing camera is a 16 MP shooter located in a punch hole in the upper left corner of the device.
OnePlus has included a 5,000 mAh battery in the OnePlus 11, which can reach a wired charging speed of 100W. Unfortunately, the device does not support wireless charging which is a big miss for a flagship device.
Gamers may appreciate the inclusion of the X-axis vibration motor, which is the largest ever included in a smartphone, according to the company. Other features include Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.3, NFC and support 13 5G bands.
The OnePlus 11 will run Color OS 13 on top of Android 13 out of the box and will be available in Green and Black colours. Prices for the device range from CNY3,999 ($580/€545) for the 12/256GB version to CNY4,899 ($710/€670) for the top 16/512GB variant.
