The OnePlus 11 is among the key flagship smartphones that we’re anticipating to launch in the course of the course of 2023, and we have some contemporary info on what the handset is perhaps bringing with it when it sees the sunshine of day.
In accordance with well-known tipster Digital Chat Station (opens in new tab) (through Pocket-lint (opens in new tab)), the OnePlus 11 goes to sport a steel body with a ceramic physique, whereas the RAM is getting bumped as much as 16GB. The OnePlus 10 Professional topped out at 12GB of RAM.
There’s apparently one other improve on the way in which as effectively: in line with the identical supply the OnePlus 11 shall be one of many first telephones to get UFS (Common Flash Storage) 4.0 for its inner storage, providing twice the information speeds of the present UFS 3.1 expertise.
Declare and counterclaim
These will surely be fascinating and interesting upgrades for the next-generation OnePlus flagship, though we have now seen ceramic earlier than on the OnePlus X – and on a number of fashions from Oppo, the cellphone maker which has now merged with OnePlus.
As typical with these types of rumors, deal with them with warning, even when the supply is a dependable one (plans can change and inside info could be unsuitable, in spite of everything). One other tipster who usually will get predictions proper, tech journalist Max Jambor (opens in new tab), says that the OnePlus 11 will not actually seem with a ceramic physique.
Jambor does agree with the UFS 4.0 rumor although, so it could appear that OnePlus is eager to pack as a lot innovative expertise as it may into its subsequent high-end product. The cellphone is anticipated to launch within the first few months of 2023.
Evaluation: OnePlus in 2023
OnePlus hasn’t precisely been constant in its cellphone launches in recent times, what with the worldwide pandemic and the merger with Oppo and all the things else that is been occurring – and which means we’re not so sure about what’s coming in 2023.
By way of the course of 2022, we have had the OnePlus 10 Professional, the OnePlus 10T, the OnePlus Nord 2T, and the OnePlus Nord CE 2. As you may see from that record, the emphasis has been on mid-range telephones, with solely the OnePlus 10 Professional counting as an precise flagship.
There was by no means a regular OnePlus 10, for causes that we’re not all that clear on. Maybe OnePlus felt the Professional moniker carried better weight, or maybe it felt that its cellphone launch calendar was already too crowded for this 12 months.
In 2023, the scenario is perhaps reversed: we’ll get a OnePlus 11 however not a OnePlus 11 Professional subsequent 12 months, in line with our good friend Max Jambor once more, although the ‘commonplace’ cellphone will apparently have the ‘professional’ elements fitted inside it.
