We are finally seeing details on the next flagship camera phone that will replace the OnePlus 10 Pro. Prolific tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer, aka OnLeaks, has shared a spec sheet for the new OnePlus 11 Pro with the site 91Mobiles (opens in new tab)and they have all the details, leading with the next generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform.
Of course, we expect the next OnePlus phone to use the best Qualcomm processor available, as superlative chips have always been OnePlus’ mainstay on its best phones. The camera setup also seems poised for a significant boost. We had previously heard that Hasselblad branding would return to the OnePlus family.
Now on the OnePlus 11 Pro we see a huge camera array with not just a 48MP main camera and a 50MP ultra-wide camera. It also looks like the telephoto could get a significant boost from the current 8MP on the OnePlus 10 Pro to a new 32MP sensor on the rumored OnePlus 11 Pro.
Oddly enough, we also hear that the front selfie camera could take a step back in megapixels. The current OnePlus 10 Pro comes with a 32MP selfie camera, but rumors point to a 16MP sensor on the front of the OnePlus 11 Pro. Of course, megapixels aren’t everything that makes a good photo. A great wide-aperture lens, in addition to a large sensor with huge pixels, would all make a great replacement for a high-MP shooter.
Furthermore, the OnePlus 11 Pro seems to be more of the same. The screen will again be 6.7-inches, just like the OnePlus 10 Pro, and will run at a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. The battery can hold 5000 mAh of charge. For OnePlus enthusiasts, the popular Alert Slider feature remains on the device.
Analysis: OnePlus likes a lot of cameras in its Pro
For OnePlus, the Pro side of the family means superior cameras. While the company’s latest phone is the flagship-level OnePlus 10T, with a superior Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset, it’s the OnePlus 10 Pro that packs the best cameras the company has to offer. The OnePlus 10T is cheaper, but makes some concessions on cameras.
OnePlus didn’t interfere with Hasselblad branding on the OnePlus 10T, but rumors seem certain that the professional camera company will sell its stamp to OnePlus for the next Pro phone, and we’re happy to see an upgrade to the camera sensors to preserve this legacy. . The 8MP telephoto sensor just wasn’t good enough, so we’re excited to see what new photos the 32MP camera can deliver.
We are also not thwarted by the reduction in megapixels on the front. The best iPhone camera and the best Google Pixel phones have been delivering amazing images with 12MP cameras for years. There’s no reason to believe that a shift from 32MP to a 16MP sensor is a guaranteed downgrade in image quality. Only time and more spec leaks will tell.
