The OnePlus 11 Finally Launched in China With a Black-Hole Inspired Camera and an Alert Slider

As promised, OnePlus has launched its new flagship phone, the OnePlus 11, in their home ground in China, making it their first commercial flagship of the year. The phone’s most unique feature, which was also hinted at in the teaser, is its new camera island. It is a blackhole-inspired circular camera island attached to the metal frame. The phone also features a much-awaited alert slider.

Besides the camera on the rear, the flagship smartphone looks familiar to its predecessor, the OnePlus 10 Pro. The new phone comes in the same colorways, including green and black. On the front of the phone, you will get a 120Hx refresh rate display with a 2K resolution. 

The screen measures 6.7 inches and is slightly curved around the edges. This curve further supports the 1300 nits of brightness that the screen is capable of. Additionally, the screen also supports adaptive refresh rates featuring LTPO 3.0. The display is also protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 7, and the body is made using Aluminum, which adds to its durable nature. Like its predecessor, the OnePlus 11 also has a glass back. 

The cameras on the OnePlus 11 are Hasselbland-enhanced, much like its predecessors. Within the unique camera island, you will find a 50MP primary shooter and a Sony IMX890 with OIS. Alongside this is a 48MP Sony IMX581 super-wide angle camera, which acts as a macro lens. The camera island also features an additional telephoto lens with a 32MP lens with 2x zoom.

Using the OnePlus 11, you can also film 8K videos at 24fps. On the front, there is a 16MP camera that can be used for selfies. The selfie camera is nestled in a punch-hole aligned to the display’s top left. To power the phone, there is a 5000mAh battery that can be charged using OnePlus’s 100W super flash charging technology. 

On the software side of things, the OnePlus 11 will ship with ColorOS 13, developed in-house and based on Android 13. However, on the global version, you can expect to see Oxygen OS 13. Another highlighting feature of this phone is the new Dolby Atmos-powered speakers and a new bionic vibrating motor that handles haptics.
