There were rumors OnePlus will be launching just a single smartphone in the upcoming 2023 OnePlus 11 Series. That’s now proven wrong thanks to the launch announcement of the OnePlus 11R 5G smartphone. Amazon India ( Amazon.in ) has a teaser page up with minimal info displayed. It will launch in India on the same date as the OnePlus 11 – Feb 7th, 2023 at 7:30 PM Indian Standard Time.
While the OnePlus 11 5G is expected to come with flagship specs and new features, OnePlus 11R 5G would be a less powerful variant. Looking at the specs of the current OnePlus 10 Series line-up, we expect the OnePlus 11R to be powered by a Mediatek chipset instead of the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon processor which the OnePlus 11 is confirmed to be equipped with.
Expect the 11R to feature a lower-resolution screen, cameras with less Megapixels and features etc. The 8K recording and Wireless charging won’t be available either. Chances are both will feature the same capacity battery though.
OnePlus Buds Pro 2 is another product OnePlus will be launching on Feb 7th in India. Stay tuned.
