oneplus Establish a schedule featuring new major releases between late Q1 and early Q2 in the past few years. However, the OnePlus 10 Pro came to change everything. The company’s flagship was launched frequently in China. This was clearly a “counter-attack” move for other brands that were or will also be introducing their flags at the start of the year. Apparently, the company will keep this strategy, and the OnePlus 11 Pro will come much earlier than usual. In fact, recent reports suggest that the phone will appear before the end of 2022. As usual in this world of leaks, the first renders are already here to confirm the design of the upcoming flagship. The renders confirm, at least for the Pro series, that the signature alert slider is alive.
OnePlus 11 Pro is shown here
The new offers come courtesy of the folks at Smartprix and OnLeaks. These renderings give us a clear picture of the design of the upcoming flagship. At first glance, we can already notice a massive change in the design of the camera module. The OnePlus 11 Pro takes a major departure from the rectangular design adopted by the OnePlus 10 Pro. The new circular island is located on the top left of the back and brings three snappers as well as an LED flash.
Moving forward, no major revolution is coming with the new flagship. We have a curved panel, probably AMOLED, with a hole cutout for the selfie camera. Unlike the last version OnePlus 10TOnePlus will keep the hole on the left side of the OnePlus 11 Pro, which has a hole in the middle.
As mentioned before, OnePlus 11 Pro will bring back the alert slider. This has been a recurring feature of the OnePlus flagship, but that has come into question with the release of the OnePlus 10R and OnePlus 10T. The company has removed the alert slider from these devices, leaving it exclusively on the OnePlus 10 Pro. Fortunately, for those who enjoy the physical “mute” button, it’s back again with the OnePlus 11 Ultra. This is a feature that no other smartphone has in the Android cart. So, for now, there will still be one thing that separates the OnePlus Pro series from other Android smartphones.
The images bring the “Hasselblad” logo in the middle of the cameras. We are not very comfortable with this position. However, the foundation stone has not yet been laid. In any case, it’s safe to assume that the partnership between OnePlus and the camera company is still alive for the Pro series.
The OnePlus 11 Pro release will happen sometime in the first quarter of 2023. There are reports of a late 2022 release, but that’s not the case confirmed Immediately. Perhaps, the company will provoke the device to release only in 2023. Therefore, it is too early to make predictions about the specifications of the phone. However, we can already expect it to come with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Hopefully, there will be major upgrades in the camera department. Last but not least, we expect the Pro to bring the company’s 150W charging technology and OxygenOS 13.
