OnePlus is reportedly dropping the Pro moniker from its flagship smartphones. The information comes from two reliable tipsters Max Jambor and Steve Hemmerstoffer. The Chinese brand has launched a Pro model since the OnePlus 7 series.
Now, OnePlus’s upcoming flagship supposed to be the OnePlus 11 Pro will debut as the OnePlus 11. In simple terms, the non-Pro version will actually come with top-of-the-line specifications. The Chinese brand did not unveil a regular variant of the OnePlus 10 this year.

OnePlus 11 Pro may debut as OnePlus 11
If the information indeed turns out to be true, OnePlus could be looking to streamlining its flagship series as a whole. The company could launch two flagship models in the first half of the year and a potential ‘T’ variant in the second half.
OnePlus could announce the OnePlus 11 as its first true flagship for the first half of 2023. It will succeed the 10 Pro 5G that debuted in January this year. Since the OnePlus 11 is tipped to be the 11 Pro previously, we already know its key specifications. It will sport a 6.7-inch AMOLED screen bearing QHD+ resolution, a punch-hole cutout at the top left corner, and a 120Hz refresh rate. The device is expected to come with a 50MP primary sensor, a 48MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 32MP 2x telephoto unit. The OnePlus 11 will reportedly be powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor coupled with up to 16GB RAM and 256GB storage. It is tipped to be backed by a 5,000mAh battery with support for 100W charging.
It’s also likely that OnePlus could launch the 11 Pro later next year with a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2 chipset. This will be followed by a T variant in the second half of 2023. OnePlus dropping the ‘Pro’ moniker on the upcoming OnePlus 11 doesn’t sound like a bad idea. The regular variants remain largely ignored in favour of the Pro models since the latter packs more beefed-up specifications.
