OnePlus 11 dummy unit video leak previews the new camera design in the flesh
The OnePlus 11 series announcement is fast approaching and there have been numerous leaks detailing its specs and outer appearance already. Chief among the design changes is the new approach to the camera island that is round and slightly off-kilter, with the lenses and 50MP sensors nestled in the elevated circle.
It looks pretty svelte, but, as usual, it might be the rest of the handset that will impress, rather than the camera specs. First off, we can reasonably expect the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, albeit clocked at a lower speed than what the Galaxy S23 series will be powered with. Moreover, the phones will carry the latest and quickest LPDDR5X RAM memory chips of Samsung along with its UFS 4.0 storage in 12GB of RAM with 256GB of storage, and 16GB of RAM with 256GB of storage versions, as well as the top of the line 16GB of RAM with 512GB of storage.
The OnePlus 11 is expected to sport a 6.7" curved OLED screen with a QHD+ resolution of 1440 x 3216 and very high peak brightness levels, as well as a granular dynamic refresh rate of 1Hz-120Hz and individual per-unit display calibration straight out of the factory.
The phone has now been previewed in the form of a hands-on video leak of the dummy unit that will be appearing at carrier stores when the OnePlus 11 gets announced on Wednesday, first in China, just in time for the local New Year celebrations, then in India a few weeks later.
At its home turf, OnePlus will release the 11 series with the latest ColorOS 13 overlay on top of Android 13. It would come in Green and Black, as usual, and carry a big 5,000 mAh battery with an ultrafast 100W charger that will be included in the box, at least in the Chinese release.
The Hasselblad branding that is seen on the round camera island is because the storied camera company has lent its image processing and filter chops to the computational algorithms that utilize the main camera with a 50MP Sony IMX890 sensor. A 48 MP ultrawide shooter, as well as a 32 MP 2x telephoto camera round up a decent photography set that we can't wait to put through its paces when we get our grubby mitts on the phone. Stay tuned!
