The OnePlus 11 was announced today in China. The global model will be released on February 7th. It will be basically identical to the Chinese one, with global software and possibly different combinations of RAM and storage. Therefore, thanks to this introduction, we know exactly what to expect.
However, we did talk about the specs of the phone in the announcement, but we didn’t go into the details. In this article, we’re going to do just that by taking a closer look at the phone’s spec sheet.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 powers the phone while LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 storage are included
First and foremost the SoC. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 powers the OnePlus 11. It’s Qualcomm’s most powerful offering and a chip that many flagships will be using this year. OnePlus paired this with LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 flash storage. Also the latest and greatest on the market.
The OnePlus 11 is available in 12GB and 16GB RAM variants. The 12GB RAM model is paired with 256GB of storage. The 16GB RAM model of the device comes with either 256GB or 512GB of storage. By the way, the memory cannot be expanded.
It has a large LTPO 3.0 AMOLED display
On the front of the phone is a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with QHD+ (3216 x 1440). This display is curved, it has really thin bezels and a hole for the display camera in the top left corner. We’re looking at a 20.1:9 aspect ratio here, and this is an LTPO 3.0 display with a 120Hz refresh rate.
The phone has a screen-to-body ratio of 92.7% and we see a PPI of 525 here. By the way, OnePlus has chosen Samsung’s panel here, which can go from 1-120Hz. It goes up to 1,300 nits of peak brightness. It supports HDR10+ content and supports Dolby Vision. AOD functionality is also included. The display is protected by Gorilla Glass 7.
100W wired charging is supported, but there’s no wireless charging here
Inside this phone is a 5,000 mAh battery. The OnePlus 11 supports 100W wired charging and comes with a 100W charger. What is surprising, however, is that wireless charging is not supported at all. At least it was left out of the official materials and the official data sheet.
On the back is a 50 megapixel main camera (Sony IMX890 sensor, f/1.8 aperture, 84 degree FoV, 6P lens, OIS, PDAF). This camera is powered by a 48-megapixel ultrawide camera (Sony IMX581 sensor, f/2.2 aperture, 115-degree FoV, 6P lens, 3.5cm macro shot) and a 32-megapixel telephoto unit (Sony IMX709 sensor, 2x optical zoom) supported , f/2.0 aperture, 49 degree field of view, 6P lens). This camera system can record 8K videos up to 24 FPS and 4K videos up to 60 FPS. Hasselblad XPAN mode is included.
Android 13 is pre-installed, Bluetooth 5.3 is supported
On the front of the device there is a 16-megapixel camera (aperture f/2.4, 82 degrees FoV, 5P lens). Android 13 is pre-installed, with OnePlus’ ColorOS 13 on top. OxygenOS 13 will be included in the global release.

The OnePlus 11 measures 163.1 x 74.1 x 8.53mm and weighs 205 grams. It is available in Endless Black and Instant Blue colors. Note that these color names are based on Google’s translation from the Chinese language. It is possible that the two models will be called Matte Black and Glossy Green worldwide.
