After launching in China in January, the OnePlus 11 has been launched globally, so important questions have been answered, such as how much it costs and when and where it can be purchased.
You can find all this information below, along with full details of the OnePlus 11 specs, design and features.
With a top-end Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, new design, new cameras and more, this phone seems to be one of the best OnePlus phones ever. Our full OnePlus 11 review is here, so you can see how it stacks up in practice, but read all the specs and information on paper.
To the point
- What is this? 2023 entry in OnePlus’ flagship line
- when is it coming out? Announced February 7, on sale February 16
- How much does it cost? Starts at $699 / £729 (around AU$1010)
OnePlus 11 price and availability
OnePlus 11 had its global launch on February 7 (after China-only launch on January 9). It will be shipped on February 16.
As for the price, the OnePlus 11 starts at $699 / £729 (around AU$1,010), which gives you a model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. There is also a version with 16GB RAM and 256GB storage for $799 / £799 (around AU$1,155). However, OnePlus does not sell its phones in Australia.
It’s worth noting that there are several other models in China, including one with 512GB of storage, but only the two options above go global.
In any case, these prices make the OnePlus 11 cheaper than the OnePlus 10 Pro at launch, as this phone officially starts at $899 / £799 (around AU$1,300). That’s good news considering the OnePlus 11 is a Pro phone in every way but name.
To sweeten the deal even further, if you pre-order the OnePlus 11, you’ll get a free gift, with options including a Bang & Olufsen speaker or a pair of OnePlus Buds Pro 2 announced alongside the phone.
OnePlus 11 design and display
Firstly, it’s worth noting that there’s only one OnePlus 11 model so far and it’s called the OnePlus 11 5G, but it has specs in line with the Pro model. So it’s unlikely a separate OnePlus 11 Pro will be launched later – although we could see a OnePlus 11T later in 2023.
Anyway, the OnePlus 11 has a design that includes a new round stainless steel camera module, but otherwise it’s not a million miles from the OnePlus 10 Pro, with an Eternal Green or Titan Black glass back, a metal frame, and a hole-punch camera in the screen.
The black color is apparently inspired by black holes, while the green shade is supposed to be inspired by a rainforest at dusk.
The phone measures 163.1 x 74.1 x 8.53mm and weighs 205g, includes the company’s signature alert slider, and the OnePlus 11’s display is a 6.7-inch 120Hz 1440 x 3216 liquid AMOLED like its predecessor. It has 525 pixels per inch and a 20.1:9 aspect ratio.
And while it peaks at 120Hz, it can also drop down to as low as 1Hz in situations where a high refresh rate isn’t needed, such as when using Always On Display. The screen is also protected by Gorilla Glass Victus, making it durable.
OnePlus 11 camera and battery
The OnePlus 11 has a triple-lens rear camera with a 50MP f/1.8 IMX890 main sensor with optical image stabilization (OIS), a 48MP f/2.2 IMX581 ultra-wide sensor (with a 115-degree field of view) and a 32MP f/2.0 IMX709 portrait lens with 2x optical zoom, which the company says allows you to shoot DSLR-quality portraits.
It’s a rather different setup than last year, with a portrait lens replacing its predecessor’s telephoto lens and different sensors.
As with the OnePlus 10 Pro, the cameras here feature Hasselblad branding and tech, but there’s also a new 13-channel multi-spectral sensor to identify the colors of the light, which should improve the color accuracy of your shots.
Video can be recorded in quality up to 8K at 24 frames per second or in resolution up to 4K at 60 frames per second, as well as a 16 MP f / 2.4 selfie camera.
On the battery front, the OnePlus 11 has 5,000mAh with 100W charging, which is fast enough for a full charge in just 25 minutes.
That’s more than the OnePlus 10 Pro’s 80W – although the 10 Pro in particular was charging at a slower 65W in the US, and we’re seeing a similar breakdown this time around, with the US model charging slower – rumored to be at 80W, but that’s unconfirmed at the time of writing.
OnePlus 11 specs and features
The OnePlus 11 should be a very capable phone as it uses the top-end Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset which should offer a 35% CPU improvement, 25% GPU improvement and better power efficiency than the previous model.
There’s also quite a bit of 8GB or 16GB of RAM, along with an advanced RAM management system that OnePlus says allows for better performance when multitasking and gaming. In total, up to 44 applications can be active on the phone at the same time.
You should be able to push the OnePlus 11 hard as it has the Cryo-velocity VC cooling system which is designed to keep it cool during prolonged gaming and other intensive uses.
When it comes to storage, the OnePlus 11 has a choice of 128GB or 256GB. There is also a fingerprint reader under the display, two speakers with Dolby Atmos support and Android 13 with the proprietary OxygenOS 13 interface.
The OnePlus 11 will also be supported for a long time as it receives four major Android updates and five years of security patches. This is the first OnePlus phone to be supported for that long, but it likely won’t be the last as the company previously revealed that “select devices launching in 2023 and beyond” will receive this level of support.
