A benchmark listing that may have been leaked has verified some of the critical hardware details for the OnePlus 11 5G. The device is projected to replace the OnePlus 10 Pro and OnePlus 10T, the company’s flagship smartphones released this year, in 2022. Contrary to several rumors, there was no OnePlus 10 this year. There were rumours about an alleged OnePlus Ultra with enhanced features and top-tier specs, but nothing ever came of it.
The two sets of allegedly accurate Geekbench 5 CPU benchmarks for the OnePlus 11 paint an ambiguous picture of how it will compare to its main Samsung rival. What to make of them is a mystery to me. The “Kalama” processor, which will have an Adreno 740 GPU and a maximum clock speed of 1.19 GHz for its 1 + 3 + 4 CPU core layout, will power the smartphone, according to the description.
The information is in line with a previous claim made by OnePlus that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC will power the OnePlus 11. The OnePlus 11 5G will debut on February 7 in India, according to OnePlus.
The aforementioned device, which formerly had the OnePlus 11’s PHB110 model number, is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. It uses Android 13. Despite not having a name, the Snapdragon silicon may be identified by the configuration, frequency, and a number of cores that are listed in the description, as well as by the GPU’s name.
The next-generation smartphone will likely be more powerful than devices using the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, according to the single-core and multi-core scores, but the listing provides no other information. Additionally, the OnePlus 11 will undoubtedly contain 16GB of RAM, albeit this may just be true of the most costly model. 12GB or 8GB of RAM may still be available.
Here is the OnePlus 11 benchmark that was leaked.
How outstanding was that performance, too? In fact, the likely OnePlus 11 either outperforms or falls short of the speculated Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra in the Geekbench tests, depending on whether you look at the single-core or multi-core ratings.
The majority of the OnePlus 11’s crucial technical details were made public last month thanks to a huge leak from a dependable source, despite the fact that OnePlus hasn’t officially verified any of the information. A 6.7-inch LTPO display with a 2K resolution and 120Hz refresh rate is suggested by the leak to be a feature of the device. The phone is predicted to come with either 128GB or 256GB of internal storage.
Leaked images and teasers for the OnePlus 11 show a triple camera setup, allegedly led by a 50MP Sony IMX890 sensor, teamed with a 48MP ultrawide camera and a 32MP telephoto lens. There is a 32MP selfie camera on the front.
Additionally, the three cameras on the back are situated in a sizable circular camera hump, according to press mockups that have leaked. Along with the smartphone, a 5,000mAh battery with 100W wired and 50W wireless fast charging is anticipated. On the software aspect, the OnePlus 11 5G will have OxygenOS 13 built on top of Android 13.
It also disclosed that the alert slider and Hasselblad-tuned cameras from previous OnePlus flagship phones would be returning. We may also expect some rapid charging technologies and high display standards if we follow OnePlus’ “quick and smooth” philosophy.
I felt the OnePlus 10 Pro was fantastic this year, so I have high hopes for the OnePlus 11, which I believe will be the best Android smartphone of 2023.
