From the official news, OnePlus Weibo dynamic (opens in a new tab) (pass notebook check (opens in a new tab)) continues to roll out information blocks: It’s teasing a “bionic motor” system for advanced haptics, and a “picture quality engine” for improving the frame rate of the phone’s display.
We also confirmed 100W super fast charging on OnePlus itself, and mentioned a 5,000 mAh battery. OnePlus also showed off a dual-port charger with USB Type-A and Type-C ports – possibly indicating that there is no charger in the box.

Analysis: Strong start to 2023
The OnePlus 11 will be the first flagship phone to debut this year, and the signs look promising: It has pretty much everything you’d want from a high-end phone in 2023, from cameras to internal processors.
We have the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor from Qualcomm that is expected to power a plethora of high-end Android phones during the year — and for quite a few Android manufacturers, it will be the fastest chipset option of all time.
There’s plenty of RAM and internal storage here, and – at least from the spec list – the rear camera module sounds promising (Hasselblad is at it again). The screen also sounds high-end.
Of course, we can’t really judge a smartphone until we actually test it, but from what we know so far, it seems like the OnePlus 11 will combine all the right ingredients. It could very well be one of the best phones we’ll see in 2023.
