The OnePlus 11 is now on sale after first going out into the Chinese market in January.
The phone is a return to a fully premium top of the line flagship after 2022’s OnePlus 10T brought some top tier specs but several downgrades on the OnePlus 10 Pro to drive the 10T’s price down. There’s no ‘Pro’ model – the OnePlus 11 is pro enough, it seems.
Here’s everything you need to know about the OnePlus 11 5G (to give it its annoying full name).

When will the OnePlus 11 be released?
The OnePlus 11 is now on sale globally in many regions including the US, UK, Europe, India, and other parts of Asia.
The phone was launched in China on 4 January 2023, a full month before the global release event happened on 7 February in New Delhi, India.
The phone’s official announcement is roughly in line with what we expected as OnePlus normally launches flagships each Spring, and in fact the OnePlus 10 Pro was revealed as early as January 2022 in China.
OnePlus also confirmed to Android Authority that there won’t be a Pro or T version of the phone this year – so it looks like you are all clear to buy the OnePlus 11 and know it won’t be superseded directly for at least a year.
How much does the OnePlus 11 cost?
The OnePlus 11 is available in most regions with either 8GB RAM and 128GB storage or 16GB RAM and 256GB storage. Here’s the global pricing:
- OnePlus 11 with 8GB/128GB – $699/£729/€849
- OnePlus 11 with 12GB/256GB – $799/£799/€919
In China there are three versions on sale, the base model of which has 12GB instead of the 8GB in the rest of the world. There’s also a 5123GB storage option you can’t get anywhere else:
- OnePlus 11 with 12GB/256GB – ¥3,999
- OnePlus 11 with 16GB/256GB – ¥4,399
- OnePlus 11 with 16GB/512GB – ¥4,899
The cheapest Chinese model gets more RAM than the global and costs ¥3,999, which is about $580/£480/€550. It shows how much cheaper the phone sells for in OnePlus’s home country, though of course a straight conversion doesn’t take into account other economic factors that affect pricing.
Still, the global pricing is very competitive and could make this phone a tempting one over phones from Samsung and OnePlus stablemate Oppo.

OnePlus claims the 8 Gen 2 offers a 35% faster CPU and 25% faster GPU performance but did not specify which chipset these percentages were in relation to. The 8+ Gen 1 found in the OnePlus 10T drove very high end performance though.
The phone is available in Titan Black or Eternal Green.
The green finish is glossy whereas the black version is matt.
OnePlus says the new circular camera housing is inspired by black holes. Oo er. It’s certainly attractive, but continues the company’s history of mixing up the design of its flagship phones between generations, getting ride of the curved square design on the 10 Pro and 10T.
With Hasselblad branding you can also expect the phone to have improved optics over the 10T, and have similar software features as the 10 Pro that improved the camera app, such as exclusive filters and aspect ratios with which to shoot.
It also packs in Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos support, photos in 10-bit colour format, and that sweet 100W charging – no wireless charging, though.
