OnePlus 11 colors: what to expect
The OnePlus 11 is now official in China, and will be launched globally in February – basically, it's coming very soon. There's no Pro in its name this year, but that definitely doesn't mean it skips the Pro features and Pro design. All in all, the phone looks stunning and premium as we've come to expect from OnePlus flagships, and we can't wait for it to be officially released globally next month.

In this article, we are talking about the colors the OnePlus 11 is rocking. This year, OnePlus is sticking with two colors for its flagship phone: Green and Black.

What colors is the OnePlus 11 available in?


The OnePlus 11 will be available in two colors: green and black. It has been announced in China, but it is not yet available globally. The green is sporting a glossy finish and the black has a matte, silky finish. Keep in mind that the names of the official colors have not been announced in English.

OnePlus 11 colors:
  • Green
  • Black

Now, let's dive into some more details and see what these two color options could bring to the table.

OnePlus 11 colors


Well, the OnePlus 11 predecessor, the OnePlus 10 Pro, also came in two colors - those were basically a green hue called Forest Emerald, and a black hue called Volcanic Black. And we're getting a similar situation with the OnePlus 11.

OnePlus 11 in Green



Green, or some form of a green shade, has been a recognizable OnePlus phone color for a while now. Ever since the OnePlus 8, OnePlus has always had a green option among the different color options for its flagships. Yep, it's not been the exact same shade of green: the OnePlus 8 sported a bright-green finish, while the OnePlus 9 Pro's Pine Green was noticeably a darker and more subdued green color.

OnePlus 10 Pro's Forest Emerald was a mixture of all the greens OnePlus rocked... somewhat. It is brighter than the Pine Green but not as vibrant as the OnePlus 8's green.

The OnePlus 11 show an overall familiar shade, more like the Pine Green on the 9 Pro than the 10 Pro. It is also possible for the green color to look different in diverse lighting conditions - we'll tell you once the phone gets globally released and we get to test it.

One thing to mention here is the glossy finish on the OnePlus 11 in green. A glossy phone indeed looks quite good; however, you're probably familiar with the problem with fingerprint smudges and glossy phones. The green is quite dark in some lighting conditions and it is possible fingerprint smudges may ruin its look a bit (well, unless you unfailingly clean them).

What is left to see is how OnePlus will implement that color and how it will look in real life. For that though, we have to wait for the global release.

OnePlus 11 in Black



The OnePlus 11 is also coming in a matte Black color option. As you know, black is never out of style, so you can never really go wrong with a black smartphone. Judging from the official renders of the OnePlus 11, it will probably look premium and amazing in real life.

The black on the phone's back blends nicely with the circular camera island and somewhat creates a futuristic look while still keeping things classy. The OnePlus logo stands out as well, but it is overall a stylish and uniform look.

And, the best thing about it is that the black is sporting a matte and silky look. The silky finish eliminates the need for a consistent obsession over cleaning your shiny new phone from fingerprints.

Conclusion: same old same gold!


Yes, we have not seen some new mysterious or eye-turning OnePlus color with the OnePlus 11, but the green and black options are definitely looking really good.

In fact, OnePlus has been experimenting with finishes and interesting ways to embellish a color that would otherwise be somewhat dull (remember the OnePlus 10 Pro's Volcanic Black that was made using "special micro-crystals to resemble glittering sand grains"?). And one of the most important things in design is to make a phone feel and look enjoyable. And we're pretty sure OnePlus won't disappoint in that category. All in all, we can't wait to see what the OnePlus 11's colors will look like in real life. Are you excited?
