OnePlus has certainly amped the ante these recent few years with its clear focus on improving its design language to deliver a more premium aesthetic on their flagship lineup.
And, courtesy of Steve from OnLeaks, GadgetGang is happy to present our exclusive coverage of the soon-to-be-released, OnePlus 11, including official press-release images!
Clarification: OnePlus originally intended to launch this phone as the OnePlus 11 Pro. However, it is now going to be released as the OnePlus 11.
OnePlus 11 Official Design Render Revealed
To no one’s surprise, the OnePlus 11 too, seems to follow the same accord of stellar design with it coming in two colors, Forest Emerald and Volcanic Black. Sadly, we aren’t going to be seeing any colors exclusive to the OnePlus 11 as of yet. But, don’t get too sad, OnePlus tends to release region-specific colors, such as their iconic Panda White series, for the Chinese market.
Compared to the OnePlus 10 Pro, there are a few differences that immediately jump out. For instance, we see the Hasselblad logo move from the left side of the camera bump to the middle. Moreover, the logo now reads horizontally.
The camera bump itself sees two major differences. Firstly, we’re met with a circular design with a three-camera array and LED flash compared to a more rectangular design on the OnePlus 10 Pro.
Moreover, the images seem to show three distinct colors being used for the outside. We’re seeing glossy material being used to make up the camera bump which seamlessly integrates with the sides of the device.
However, the camera array itself retains its signature black look. The majority of the back panel seems to be pretty similar in terms of the color tone and hue to the OnePlus 10 Pro.
We’re big fans of the changes made to the camera bump in particular. The circular design leaves it to be more akin to a traditional camera, while the glossier finish gives more of a luxurious aesthetic.
OnePlus 11 Specifications
|6.7-inch QHD+ AMOLED Display
|Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
|Up to 16 GB
|50 MP + 48 MP + 32 MP

A quick look at these specs, and you’ll come to realize that the OnePlus 11 isn’t going to be a slouch by any stretch of the imagination. Featuring a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 with up to 16 GBs of RAM, the phone will quite pack a punch.
Call us buzzkills. But, it is the 100W fast charging that’s the most appealing in this package. OnePlus’s signature fast charging speeds carry forward with this generation of their mobile phones, netting you one of the fastest charging phones that you can currently buy.
Hasselblad’s cameras also make a return in the OnePlus 11 featuring an impressive array of 50 MP, 48 MP ultra wide angle, and 32 MP 2x telephoto cameras, respectively. Coupled with some AI enhancement, we can expect to see some great shots coming out of all three rear-facing cameras.
The front-facing camera, too is at 16 MP, allowing for high-resolution selfies and great video calls. While we aren’t sure of the low-light performance of any of these cameras yet, judging by the sensor size, we definitely aren’t going to be disappointed.
The OnePlus 11 is expected to release sometime around Q1 2023. What do you feel about the OnePlus 11? Are the design changes to your taste? Let us know in the comments down below!
