OnePlus has officially unveiled its newest flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 11, in China. Over the last several weeks, the company has provided a few information regarding its upcoming flagship smartphone. The smartphone has been upgraded with a new design that includes a circular camera bump that is inspired by the concept of a ‘black hole,’ which has been shown in various renderings that have been revealed over the past months. Alongside the launch of its new smartphone, OnePlus also unveiled its most recent flagship TWS earphones, called the OnePlus Buds Pro 2, and the company has said that it intends to bring both products to worldwide markets in the next month. In the event that you are eager to get the OnePlus 11 and OnePlus Buds Pro 2, the following is a concise rundown of some of the most significant enhancements that both products have to offer.
OnePlus Buds Pro 2
The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 are an update to last year’s OnePlus Buds Pro, with a number of noteworthy upgrades over its predecessor. The latest model makes use of a modernized dual-driver layout, with 11mm drivers for rumbling bass and 6mm speakers for crystalline highs and smooth midrange. Compared to the previous model’s single 11mm driver’s output, this should expand the soundstage.
In addition to its improved drivers, the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 has Smart Adaptive Sounds Cancellation (ANC) that can block out noise as loud as 48 decibels, a charging case that can extend playtime to a maximum of 39 hours, and six-axis motion sensors for head tracking and Spatial Audio. The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 have increased connection stability with Bluetooth 5.3 LE Audio, and they also allow dual connection so you can connect to two devices at once.
The design needs to be where you see the most change. As a first for a OnePlus phone, the camera module of the OnePlus 11 is made of stainless steel. Moreover, the camera module is now much more noticeable and round in design. Both the alert slider and the Hasselblad branding, which were absent on the OnePlus 10T, have returned with the OnePlus 11. A glass sandwich shell encases the phone’s internal components.
Leaks and teasers have shown that the OnePlus 11 would include up to 16GB of RAM and Qualcomm’s newest flagship SoC, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Featuring a 2K LTPO 3.0 AMOLED display with a maximum refresh rate of 120 Hz and variable refresh rate support, this gadget is a visual delight. With its large 5,000 mAh battery and compatibility for 100W wired fast charging, the OnePlus 11 should charge much more quickly than the OnePlus 10 Pro. There will be wired fast charging capability, but it won’t be as quick as the 150W support on the worldwide OnePlus 10T.
Camera improvements include a revamped triple camera arrangement on the device’s rear, created in collaboration with Hasselblad. It has a main Sony IMX890 sensor with 50 megapixels, a secondary Sony IMX581 sensor with 48 megapixels for ultra-wide photos, and a third Sony IMX709 sensor with 32 megapixels for “DSLR-quality” portraits. While the OnePlus 11 lacks a specialized telephoto lens, it makes up for this with a brand new 13-channel multi-spectral light-color detecting sensor that ensures great results in every lighting condition.
China will get their hands on the OnePlus 11 and OnePlus Buds Pro 2 on January 9th. The base 12GB/256GB edition of the flagship smartphone will cost $580, whereas the top-end 16GB/512GB version will set you back $710. The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 have yet to have a price announced by OnePlus. Once more details become available, we will put them here.
As was previously reported, the OnePlus 11 and OnePlus Buds Pro 2 will be available globally starting next month. An official unveiling will take place during a launch event planned by OnePlus on 7 February 2023 in New Delhi, India. The gadget is expected to be available for purchase in the United States and other major regions soon.
