On the first days of 2023, OnePlus uncovered the most powerful smartphone of the company. Unfortunately, the OnePlus 11 was available for purchase only in China. The same was true for the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 TWS earphones as well. But such a treasure shouldn’t be offered in a single market. At the recent event, the company issued a statement saying that these two are going on sale globally.
OnePlus 11 Highlights
The OnePlus 11 comes with tons of selling points. For instance, it sports a 6.7-inch 1440x3216px AMOLED LTPO3 display. The latter allows the phone to support an adaptive 120Hz refresh rate. It also boasts of a peak brightness of 1300 nits.

Another highlight is imaging. The OnePlus 11 sports a 16MP selfie camera on the front. While this is not anything outstanding, on the opposite side, the phone carries a triple camera. The camera module includes a 50MP f/1.8 24mm main sensor (IMX890 – 1/1.56″), a 32Mp f/2.0 48mm 2x zoom lens (IMX709 – 1/1.56″), and a 48MP 115-degree f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle lens (IMX581 – 1/2.0). The entire system supports autofocus and macro shooting. These sensors work under the control of Hasselblad imaging 3.0. The latter brings multiple goodies, such as natural color calibration, Hasselblad portrait mode, and OnePlus’ own TurboRAW HDR.
Of course, it couldn’t be so attractive if there is no Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 under the hood. The chip is paired with 8GB or 16GB of RAM and 128GB and 256GB of storage.
The machine has a built-in 5000mAh battery, which supports 100W SUPERVOOC wired charging. By the way, the North American version supports 80W SUPERVOOC wired charging. The latter allows the phone to reach 100% in less than 27 minutes. However, the OnePlus 11 does not have wireless charging.
The OnePlus 11 is the first OnePlus phone to receive four major OxygenOS updates and five years of security updates.

Another selling point of these earphones is the TUV-certified intelligent adaptive noise reduction function. It can eliminate up to 48 decibels of ambient noise. There is a transparency mode that all we like a lot. It lets in outside sound so you can talk to people.
With the adaptive noise reduction function turned off, the Buds Pro 2 can last for 39 hours. At the same time, the case supports wireless charging via any Qi charger or wired charging via USB-C.
The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 is available in black and green versions matching the OnePlus 11. At the moment, you can purchase them through the OnePlus website and Amazon for $179 and 11,999 Indian rupees ($145). However, it will start shipping on February 16.
