Chinese brand, OnePlus, has been quite consistent in the mobile phone market over the years. In fact, it seems to have more presence in the U.S. and U.K. markets than any other Chinese brand. Nevertheless, OnePlus has largely been a flagship brand. This means that the company only focuses on flagship mobile phones. However, all that is changing now since it released the Nord series. OnePlus’ mobile phone product line is no longer limited to high-end flagship models. The brand now provides users with a richer product portfolio.
Its regular digital model still focuses on high-end flagships. However, it now has the R series (renamed OnePlus Ace series) that focus on the gaming experience. There is also the Nord series which focuses on mid-end to low-end models. In the report by 91mobiles, the list of mobile phones that OnePlus will launch next year is listed.
Top 4 OnePlus mobile phones to launch next year
1. OnePlus 11
The OnePlus 11 will remain the brand’s high-end flagship product. This device will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. It will also use up to 16GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The front of this mobile phone has a 6.7-inch QHD+AMOLED display. This display supports a 120Hz refresh rate. Also on the front, there is a 16MP selfie camera at the punch hole.

The system will upgrade to Android 13.
The OnePlus 11 family will have a ceramic body with a metal frame, according to recent rumors. This substance will not only make the device feel stronger, but it will also increase the device’s durability. Tech insider Max Jambor claims that the ceramic build will only be available on the 11 Pro model. Another leak suggests that both of the devices will include UFS 4.0 storage at the same time. In comparison to the UFS 3.1 standard now used in flagships, this technology is around two times faster.

The front of the mobile phone will have a 16MP selfie camera. Reliable leaker OnLeaks revealed the full specifications of the OnePlus 11R back in September.

The Chinese variant of the phone might run Android 13 OS with ColorOS 13 on top. However, the Indian model is likely to boot Oxygen OS 13 out of the box, according to a report by MySmartPrice.
3. OnePlus Nord CE 3
The OnePlus Nord CE 3 could be the company’s mid-to-high-end smartphone in 2023. According to the leaked specs, the Nord CE 3 may feature a 6.7-inch IPS LCD panel with a refresh rate of 120Hz, rather than the AMOLED panel used in the Nord CE 2. According to sources, the device is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 chip coupled with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. This mobile phone will also come with an 108MP main camera and two 2MP auxiliary cameras. The front of this device will have a 16MP selfie camera.

The battery capacity of this phone may be 5000 mAh that supports 67W fast charging. The OnePlus Nord CE 3 is expected to launch in the first or second quarter of 2023. The specs of this device may sound familiar. Its the usual mid-range specs of many Oppo or Realme mid-range phones. It’s not a surprise to see it again on the OnePlus Nord CE 3. The OnePlus Nord CE 3 sounds like a downgrade in display since the Nord CE 2 had an AMOLED screen. The performance may be similar in real-world usage, but we don’t see a reason to upgrade if you have a Nord CE 2.
