All about the OnePlus 11
The OnePlus 11 is the logical sequel to last year. It generally retains the same design as its predecessor, with in particular this cooking plate which in fact contains the sensors of the camera, on the left corner at the top of the back of the smartphone. Unlike competitors, the Chinese brand does not race for numbers of inches or megapixels. No, OnePlus does things in a balanced way and offers a main sensor of 50 megapixels or an ultra wide-angle of 48 megapixels.
Where the eleventh iteration of this high-end phone takes risks is on the telephoto lens, since it incorporates an x2 dedicated to portrait mode photos. The latter benefits from a 13-channel “multispectral identification” technology, supposed to help “cover all photographic scenarios”. According to our test, it’s easy to “have fun with this optical x2, without ever being too wrong about the shot”.
Obviously, in terms of performance, OnePlus continues to offer the best on its premium smartphones. The OnePlus 11 is then naturally equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, with 8 or 16 GB of RAM depending on the model chosen. The Qualcomm chip promises a performance gain of 35% for the CPU and 25% for the GPU. Concretely, no use in 2023, or even for years later, will undermine this configuration. In addition, the heating is rather well managed. As for the user experience, it is perfectly fluid, moreover under Android 13 with the Oxygen OS interface.
To enjoy the OnePlus 11 as it should, you will finally be entitled to an excellent 6.7-inch OLED screen, with QHD + definition and a refresh rate of 120 Hz, not to mention the LTPO 3.0 technology to save a little battery . Moreover, the latter offers a capacity of 5,000 mAh, which is more than enough to last a whole day, or even more depending on use. However, you can count on the 100 W SuperVOOC charge if necessary, which takes only 20 minutes to go from 9 to 100%.
Small originality specific to the brand, the Alert Slider, housed in the frame at the level of the photo block, continues its journey after being removed from the OnePlus 10T. As a reminder, this is a sliding button located on the edge of the phone with three options: sound activated, vibrate, silent.
