Nonetheless, the tipsters have also stated that OnePlus 11’s triple camera setup is developed with Hasselblad. Yes, they are the same brand that tuned the cameras of the OnePlus 10 Pro. And on the front, there will be a 16MP selfie shooter.
Furthermore, rumor has it that the phone will pack a 5000mAH battery with 100W fast-charging capability.
The Iconic Alert Slider Is Making a Comeback!
The OnePlus 10T disappointed a lot of fans. And there were two main reasons. Firstly, That device did not come with Hasselblad tuning, which can be accepted as it was a budget-friendly phone. Secondly, and most importantly, the 10T did not have an alert slider!
I mean, the alert slider was one of the things that made OnePlus phones unique. So, I can definitely understand why fans were disappointed with the 10T.
Nonetheless, the good news is that the Hasselblad tuning and alert slider are coming back on the OnePlus 11.
In other news, the “Cloud 11” event will also unveil OnePlus’s new flagship buds, the Buds Pro 2. And according to the company, the buds will offer:
a full-bodied, stereo-quality audio experience with crystal clarity.
Now, that sounds a lot promising. And needless to say, we all are pretty excited to see what OnePlus will provide with the Buds Pro 2. But do you think it will be a true competitor to Apple AirPods Pro 2? Or will be better than those TWS?
Lastly, OnePlus also said that it has more to reveal beyond the earbuds and earbuds on the event. What do you think “more” will be? Let us know all your thoughts in the comment section below.
