OnePlus 11 5G series set for a launch in February 2023

Oneplus has a launch event on February 7, where they are going to unveil the new OnePlus 11 5G series. This device is like to launch with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processors, 12 and 16 GB Ram models, and 512 GB of storage options. There is nothing new with flagship phones these days and this is going to be another device. 2022 was a pretty lousy year for OnePlus, let us see if they can turn around that this time.

The phone is expected to launch with a triple camera set-up of 50+32+48MP and a 16MP selfie camera. A 120 Hz Amoled display with HDR10+ support, a 5000mAh battery with 100W charging support. USF storage is 4.0. The performance of the phone is obviously going to be good. But, I still miss the oxygen OS ;). OnePlus has always underperformed in the camera department and it’s not a true flagship unless it starts performing decently in the camera department as well. The Flagship killer tag is long gone and now they have to up their game in these aspects to stay competitive in the market.
