One Plus 11 concept flowing back design through blue lighting
OnePlus brought out its flagship smartphone of 2023, the OnePlus 11, earlier this month, out of China to international markets. Now, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is gearing up to unveil a new concept phone the OnePlus 11 Concept – at the MWC 2023.
OnePlus has shared a teaser of its upcoming concept phone the OnePlus 11 showing off the back or the ‘flowing back’ of the smartphone. The design features a meandering stream-like LED lighting pattern with a ring encircling the camera module and a unibody glass construction that gives the impression of “flowing back.”
The company says that the flowing back “shows the engineering breakthroughs of the OnePlus 11 Concept by highlighting the icy blue pipelines which run through the entire back of the phone, almost like OnePlus 11 Concept has its own series of blood vessels.”
OnePlus revealed its first concept phone, the OnePlus Concept One, in 2020, featuring a McLaren-inspired design and an invisible camera island. In 2021, the company presented the OnePlus 8T Concept at MWC, which incorporated electrochromic glass with Electronic Color Material and Finish that allowed for a colour-shifting glass effect.
OnePlus 11 comes with 120Hz AMOLED, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and up to 16GB RAM
The OnePlus 11 is equipped with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, up to 16GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. It also features a 5000mAh battery with 100W SuperVOOC charging, with the charger included in the box. The smartphone has a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with an adaptive refresh rate of 120Hz that can decrease to as low as 1Hz. The panel supports HDR10+, and Dolby Vision playback has a peak brightness of 1300 nits and is housed in a black hole-inspired camera island. The camera setup includes a 50MP main camera, a 48MP ultrawide camera, and a 32MP telephoto camera, all calibrated by Hasselblad.
So far, it is not known if this OnePlus 11 will ever go on sale or will remain an one-off concept phone that is just for showcase.
