Two missing features from the 10T have been restored in the first OnePlus 11 Pro renders

Two missing features from the 10T have been restored in the first OnePlus 11 Pro renders ...

The OnePlus 11 Pro, which is expected to arrive early next year, is already working on its next flagship, presumably called the OnePlus 11 Pro. But OnLeaks (in collaboration with SmartPrix), has revealed the details of the upcoming phone. From the perspective of the design, the controversy is wreaking havoc on aesthetics.

Before we dive into the details, here''s a little bit of caution. These scenes are based on an early prototype of a phone. OnePlus and other smartphone brands are known to design multiple versions of a phone before one of them is locked as the final version. In a nutshell, there''s a possibility that the actual OnePlus 11 Pro might look a little different than the leaked media.

Hey #FutureSquad! With 2023''s first major leak, I''m back from the Future!

Through crispy 5K renders, here is your very first and very early look at the #OnePlus11Pro!

With that out of the way, let''s talk about the design. OnePlus is still building a half-wraparound design for the camera island. Instead of just populating it with three lenses and the LED flash, OnePluss have constructed another circular hump inside the camera island. It looks like a mishmash from the OnePlus 10 Pro and Huawei P50 Pros design, but the end product in the genre is quite bad.

The dual-glass sandwich design has a thin metallic frame on one side of it. Things look familiar at the front, and the screen has a subtle curve, as well as a circular hole-punch cutout in the upper left corner, making it a home for the selfie camera. Qualcomm''s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is expected to be capable of operating it, which arguably is more like an educated guess.

The alert slider returns

The revealed renders reveal a couple of highlights. First, the alert slider is restored. OnePlus removed the popular key on the OnePlus 10T and deservedly received some flak. The company later explained that the alert slider was dropped to allow for a large battery and other hardware to be charged as well as a network antenna.

It appears that OnePlus has found a way to accommodate all of that while also resetting the alert slider. It''s truly astounding to see how much difference a year makes in terms of smartphone design (or explaining odd product decisions). Either way, a key component of OnePlus phones that was also functionally convenient is making a comeback, and diehard fans will certainly be pleased to see that.

Hasselblad camera with juicy upgrades

The Hasselblad camera branding comes to a close. OnePlus dropped the Hasselblad signature for its latest high-end phone, the OnePlus 10T. It appears that dropping the Hasselblad branding was to save money on royalty fees for a less-familiar phone, the OnePlus 10T. Or, OnePlus just wants to keep it as an exclusive ingredient for the OnePlus 10 Pro, and OnePlus 11 Pro.

Weibo, a Chinese microblogging platform, suggests that the OnePlus 11 Pro might well be a rebranded version of the upcoming Oppo Find X6 Pro product, which does not sound too far-fetched. Moreover, the OnePlus 10 Pro shared a lot of its expertise, especially in the camera industry, with the Oppo Find X5 Pro.

Both the Oppo and the OnePlus flagship may have a substantial 1-inch camera sensor, similar to the Xiaomi 12S Ultra. Plus, the ultra-wide-angle camera will also feature a huge 50-megapixel sensor. Moreover, the company will finally embrace periscope-style folded lens telephoto hardware with the OnePlus 11 Pro, which offers a far better zooming performance than the regular 3.3-x telephoto snapper on the OnePlus 10 Pro.
