Set to be a more affordable version of the OnePlus 11 family, the OnePlus 11R is expected to feature a MediaTek or Qualcomm chipset from the series already used with older-generation flagship phones.
On the short list of “candidates” could be the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, the same chipset already used with the OnePlus 10T, but put in a smartphone with mid-range specs and price. Alternatively, we could still find a MediaTek chipset, but better than the Dimensity 8100 MAX solution used with last year’s OnePlus 10R.
As for the rest of the specs, still unconfirmed by the manufacturer, the OnePlus 11R could come with a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. The phone will offer a triple-camera setup with a 50MP main sensor, 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 2MP macro sensor with more of a decoration role.
Apparently, the 150W fast charging system on the 10R will not be carried over to the OnePlus 11R successor, with the manufacturer opting to increase the battery capacity to 5000mAh at the cost of limiting the charging power to 100W.
According to rumours so far, the OnePlus 11R could be released by the end of this year. However, OnePlus’ strategy for the 10R was to release it only some time after the 10 Pro, so that the cheaper alternative wouldn’t “bite” too much off sales of the more expensive top version.
