The OnePlus 11 Pro''s charm has begun to surface, and we''re already looking forward to it as one of the first big phones of 2023.
When we reviewed the OnePlus 10 Pro earlier this year, the competition has improved, therefore we''re ready to see what OnePlus will do to produce its flagship Pro model. So far, it''s like a fresh design and a new, more powerful chipset.
Below, we look at the OnePlus 11 Pro rumors as they appear, plus we make a few polite requests for features that OnePlus might do with the 11 Pro to make the process as simple as possible.
Possible release date and price for the OnePlus 11 Pro
According to Digital Chat Station, the OnePlus 11 Pro will be on sale until the end of the year. Keep an eye on this fact that the Chinese version of the OnePlus 10 Pro was inferred for several months before the worldwide release. This means that the OnePlus 11 Pro will not be on offer for customers in the United States or the United Kingdom until later in Spring 2023.
Since the OnePlus 10T retailed for $649/629, the OnePlus 10T still had a set of benefits in return, it does not require an additional cost.
Even at $899, OnePlus would still undercut comparablely luxurious and fully-featured phones like the Galaxy S22 Plus, Galaxy S22 Ultra, and iPhone 14 Pro. We''d still anticipate the upcoming Pixel 7 Pro to match it, though, since the Pixel 6 Pro is now available for $899.
According to Yogesh Brar, the standard OnePlus 11 will not be that much different from the OnePlus 10 Pro and OnePlus 10T, as it might be 2022.
OnePlus 11 Pro: Design and display
On the front, we''d imagine the OnePlus 11 Pro will look quite like the OnePlus 10 Pro, which had a flat display with a center punch-hole, which appears to have been a T-series upgrade, thanks to fresh displays from OnLeaks.
The big change from the OnePlus 10 Pro and 10T is the camera bump. The squared-off block has now turned circular, with two lines extending off the main round body to join the side rail. It''s yet another new design for OnePlus, but it looks great.
According to these calculations, the OnePlus 10T was the first flagship OnePlus without the slider. However, OnePlus'' statements from the time indicated that this would not be a permanent decision in the future. We anticipate (and hope) it will appear on the 11 Pro.
As for the display, we will expect another 6.7-inch LTPO display with QHD resolution on the 11 Pro, as OnePlus has used in the last few generations of flagship phone. This should again make it in a position to be one of the most fully featured screens on a smartphone, alongside the Galaxy S22 Ultra and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
According to Assen on Weibo, the Pro model this year will be significantly superior to the OnePlus 10 Pro, because it''ll have a lot of support for the upcoming Oppo Find X6 Pro Plus, and it has produced some fantastic devices, including the Oppo Find X5 Pro. We don''t know what Pro Plus might be, but it sounds quite an interesting one.
OnePlus 11 Pro: Cameras
We expect OnePlus to return its Hasselblad-tuned cameras on the 11 Pro as a pro-designated model. OnePlus signed up for a few years of partnership with the Swedish camera manufacturer, but this was because OnePlus apparently didn''t consider this phone a photography-focused smartphone. So expect to see the partnership alive and well on the 11 Pro.
Triple rear cameras with 48MP main, 50MP ultrawide, and 10MP 3.3x optical telephoto cameras, along with a 32MP selfie camera on the front. OnLeaks/SmartPrix renders, however, we can see three lenses as well. This makes this feel even more likely.
Like with the OnePlus 10 Pro, there is no sign of a significant fourth rear sensor, which is beneficial because those didn''t impress us much on previous OnePlus handsets. The OnePlus 8 Pro had a photochrom mode camera that could take photographs with a strange (sometimes X-ray) filter applied, while the 9 Pro offered a dedicated monochrome camera for black-and-white exposures.
OnePlus 11 Pro: Performance
The OnePlus 11 Pro will not be lacking in power whatever chip it ends up with, according to leakers. Digital Chat Station will include a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, the follow-up to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and 8 Plus Gen 1 that we''ve seen this year. If the phone does launch before the end of the year, it will be able to take the title of "most powerful" for at least a couple months without any significant competition from other Android devices (although the iPhone 14 Pro will likely outperform it as previous iPhone
As it has for the past several generations of its flagships, OnePlus will likely combine this chip with 8GB or 12GB (or even 16GB) RAM and 128GB and 256GB storage options.
OnePlus 11 Pro: Battery and charging
The 11 Pro will come with an absurdly powerful charging brick in the box, which means that OnePlus always prioritizes charging speed.
The OnePlus 10 Pro is compatible with an 80W charger or a 65W one in the United States, while the OnePlus 10T is loaded with a 150W charger. Although it is possible that OnePlus might go even faster if it''s got a new charger ready. Equally, it might stick with 80W charging because it would help distinguish the T series from the Pro.
OnePlus 11 Pro: What we want to see
So far, there have been a lot of gaps in the OnePlus 11 Pro rumors. However, there are certain things that we hope OnePlus will adapt (or at least keep the same) for its next flagship.
More cameras are being added.
With its second-generation Hasselblad for Mobile photography, OnePlus was so close to being one of the best camera phones last year. However, it will take more than just software enhancements to make the 11 Pro more compliant with fantastic cameras such as the Galaxy S22 series or Google Pixel 6 series.
One of the biggest difficulties right now is its telephoto camera. Although the 3.3x zoom for a flagship Android phone is considerably lower and it is considerably larger and thinner than any other one. This, as well as perhaps a larger and higher-resolution main camera, would give us much more confidence right off the bat.
A valid IP rating
Most OnePlus flagship phones have been praised for their excellent dust/water resistance ratings. OnePlus isn''t sure if it is waterproof or waterproof, so that''s not enough for proper comfort.
A longer turnaround time
OnePlus has given the 10 Pro three guaranteed years of Android upgrades, which is an acceptable number. However, with Samsung offering four years for its phones (5 years of security patches), another year or two of support would increase profit to a company already known for lower-than-average pricing.
A base model
The 11 Pro would be the focus of OnePlus'' efforts, but the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro will be the most powerful smartphones to be had cheaper than the competition in 2021. OnePlus should try again to compete here, and offer users a well-designed flagship.
