The OnePlus 11R succeeds last year’s OnePlus 10R, while the OnePlus Pad will be the very first tablet from the brand.
February seems to be an exciting month for smartphone enthusiasts, with not one but two flagship smartphone series on the way. Samsung’s S23 series has stolen much of the limelight, but the OnePlus 11 series is worth the hype as well. Two phones are expected this year – the OnePlus 11 and the OnePlus 11R. The latter should make for a better buy for the more budget-conscious users. Fans of large screens, meanwhile, may prefer the OnePlus Pad. Both these devices are expected to launch on February 7, and with the big day closing in, here’s everything you need to know about them.
OnePlus’s flagship strategy has been confusing of late. The OnePlus 9 series was the last series that saw both Pro and non-Pro models – the subsequent year only saw a OnePlus 10 Pro joined by a OnePlus 10R after three months. And let’s not forget about the OnePlus 10T. This year retains the ‘R’ model, but there’s no Pro model in the cards as far as we can tell. This means the series will comprise the OnePlus 11 and the OnePlus 11R. Both devices are also set to launch on the same day.
Last year’s OnePlus 10R was all about flagship performance at a non-flagship price, and the OnePlus 11R may be keeping this trait. Reliable tipster Ishan Agarwal divulged to MySmartPrice that the upcoming phone may be powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor. Compared to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, the 8+ Gen 1 is claimed to perform faster while also being more power efficient. It’s assisted by the Adreno 730 for graphics.
