Don’t refer to it as the alert slider making a comeback.
Corporate insiders are aware that companies are competing for firsts wherever they can obtain them in the mobile realm. If they aren’t out-engineering their rivals’ flagships, they are claiming exclusive or novel parts before everyone else. Therefore, it’s possible that the OnePlus 11 Pro may be the first device to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC in 2019. But up to this point, we haven’t even seen what it will look like.
Slashleaks has discovered a series of four renderings of the aforementioned phone. It’s a little challenging to get specifics because the phone’s hue blends into the surrounding darkness.
The Hasselblad-branded camera hump is the device’s best feature, at least from these perspectives. The three cameras and flash LED on this one look to be positioned similarly to those on the OnePlus 10 Pro, except they are atop a circular lump rather than a squarish hump and appear to be a little larger.
The cover glass bends down to the lateral margins of the device’s front, where the display seems to flow directly to the body’s boundaries. The top-left corner of the front also features a selfie camera with a punch-hole.
Longtime supporters will enjoy the alert slider’s presence, even if there is no difference between Pro models and this. However, the more cheap OnePlus 10T did not succeed, so we’ll be watching to see what happens with the OnePlus 11T – designers will need to decide whether the device is worth the price.
Overall, it appears like OnePlus is happy to maintain its material design language, albeit we would have some criticisms of that punch-hole camera. Before any of us can come to a quick conclusion on the OnePlus 11 Pro, we’ll need more information on the specifications.
