This week – Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Phone makers are scrambling to announce when they will begin using the chip. OnePlus confirmed the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 would be used on its phones shortly after Oppo announced it would use it for its future flagship.
The OnePlus 11 is mentioned in the post on Weibo, where the company says it will use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in its next phone. According to the post-translation, OnePlus will be the first to introduce a phone with the technology. We’ll see if that’s accurate and whether we see any other phones with the chip before the OnePlus 11 launches.
OnePlus is rumored to introduce its OnePlus 11 handset before the end of the year. If that is the case, the next OnePlus phone may be released faster than any previous generation. This may remain a China-only launch for a few months.
In line with previous rumors, the next phone from OnePlus will be called the OnePlus 11. It is rumored that the company will drop the Pro moniker in 2023. Even though it does not have the Pro title, it appears to be a follow-up to the OnePlus 10 Pro. Overall, this may get confusing over the coming months. OnePlus and Qualcomm will continue their partnership for flagship devices.
Some leaks suggest a 6.7-inch QHD+ AMOLED screen, 16GB of RAM, a 5,000mAh battery, and 100W charging will be included. There will be an ultra-wide camera of 48MP and a telephoto camera of 32MP in addition to the 50MP main camera. Moreover, it will run on Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 technology, and a leak indicates that the company will bring back the alert slider feature from the OnePlus 10T.
