Last week, OnePlus teased a new special edition OnePlus 11 with some sort of connection to Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system. The company’s President for the Chinese market Li Jie said it will be a “unique” device featuring “unprecedented materials and craftsmanship”. While Li didn’t share further details, we won’t have to wait much longer to know what the Oppo sub-brand is readying. The OnePlus 11 Jupiter Rock Limited Edition will launch this Wednesday, March 29th at 2:30 pm Chinese time (2:30 am ET/6:30 am GMT).
OnePlus revealed the launch date of the upcoming device in a recent post on the Chinese social media platform Weibo (via). The company reiterated that the OnePlus 11 Jupiter Rock Limited Edition will be “unique”; every unit will have its own individual design.
The so-called “unprecedented materials” that it features are not known, though. Early rumors have pointed to a marble back, though a leaked render showed the handset will have a monotonous beige/cream finish as opposed to unique marble patterns. Thankfully, everything will be official in just a couple of days.
This limited edition OnePlus 11 will pack the same internals
OnePlus launched the OnePlus 11 earlier this year. The device first debuted in China with the global launch following in February. It is currently available in Black and Green colors with a glass front and back and an aluminum frame. The upcoming special edition will be its third variant. But, unlike the former two, it will likely be available in limited quantity. The device will also probably cost more than the regular model’s starting price of $699.
However, don’t expect OnePlus to ship the phone with upgraded internals. The OnePlus 11 Jupiter Rock Limited Edition will be nothing but a “unique” OnePlus 11 with new materials on its external surface. The display, chipset, battery, cameras, and all other internal components will remain unchanged. In our review, we found the OnePlus 11 to be a compelling flagship smartphone. You can read the full review to know more about its everyday performance.
For a quick rundown, the OnePlus 11 features a 6.7-inch Fluid AMOLED display with a QHD+ resolution (1440 x 3216 pixels) and a 120Hz refresh rate. It is a 10-bit panel with HDR10+ and Dolby Vision support and up to 1300 nits of peak brightness.
Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor powers the phone with up to 512GB of storage and 16GB of RAM. The device has a 50MP primary camera with 8K video recording support, stereo speakers, an under-display fingerprint scanner, and Wi-Fi 7. It is fueled by a 5,000mAh battery with support for 100W/80W fast charging.
