OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 11 5G will be one of the first flagship phones to launch in 2023 and will be joined by the OnePlus Buds Pro 2.
A teaser posted on the Monday ahead of the Feb. 7 event revealed that the company’s key new features are those missing from the OnePlus 10T – the Hasselblad camera system and the much-missed notification slider.
The latter, in particular, has caused chagrin among OnePlus users who liked the ability to seamlessly switch their phone from silent to ring, so it only makes sense that the company is touting a return to an event dubbed Cloud 11.
The teaser image for the event, which will take place in India, confirms that there will be a redesigned camera bulge that resembles an airplane window. The image says “Witness to the form of power”, which appears to be a reference to the new form.
The rest of the company has little to offer. It’s okay. We don’t expect the company to reinvent the wheel, especially since the initial focus was on bringing back old features.
Recent leaks and rumors suggest there will be 100W wired charging and a 120Hz display. We also expect the company to use the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, while the phone should ship with Android 13 out of the box.
Elsewhere, the company has promised to release the OnePlus Buds Pro 2, which the company says will come with “rich, stereo-quality sound with crystal clarity.”
“We are thrilled to introduce these amazing new products that bring a faster and smoother experience to the market,” said Pete Lau, Founder of OnePlus, Senior Vice President and Head of Product at OPPO and OnePlus. “OnePlus 11 5G, OnePlus Buds Pro 2 and other products are driven by our spirit of co-creation and will be equipped with the most advanced technologies to provide our users with an enhanced experience.”
