Rumor | OnePlus 11 will focus on a premium build over camera performance in 2023
OnePlus' top-end 10 Pro smartphone model was the subject of a high-profile durability crisis in 2022. Now, according to a prominent tipster, the brand is taking no chances of a recurrence next year by selecting more premium materials to make its 11 follow-up. Then again, its rear cameras are still tipped not to live up to this upgrade.
OnePlus is projected to release just 1 flagship smartphone called the 11 in early 2023, even though its putative predecessor was called the 10 Pro. That, however, might be a secondary concern in light of renders suggesting the similarity in looks between the 2 devices.
The "11's" leaks show a device very reminiscent of the 10 Pro from the back, which might imply concerns as to whether it has inherited the 2022 flagship's famous structural integrity issues or not. However, according to the normally reliable tipster Digital Chat Station, OnePlus has dealt with this by upgrading its next-gen flagship's rear panel from glass to ceramic.
This typically ultra-premium material is thought to be joined by a ~6.7-inch 2K OLED display, up to 16GB of RAM and the latest UFS 4.0-standard internal storage type in the "OnePlus 11".
Then again, these specs are thought to be off-set by rear cameras that might prove underwhelming, especially compared to what its sister Android flagship the OPPO Find X6 Pro may be capable of.
That might prove a little ironic if true, particularly as the 11 also stands to be the last OnePlus flagship with the chance to potentially benefit from Hasselblad branding.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
