OnePlus 11 Concept release date history

OnePlus Concept 11 isn’t the first concept phone from the company. It all started with the OnePlus Concept One, and then it was the OnePlus 8T Concept, and now, the company has unveiled the third concept smartphone. 

These are exciting new smartphones equipped with new technologies. Unfortunately, the company doesn’t release these devices to the consumer market and doesn’t share when the cool technologies they are showing off will be available. There is nothing more to it, they are just for the show, and the company doesn’t follow any specific release window for them. 

  • OnePlus 8T Concept: Jan 2020
  • OnePlus Concept One: Dec 2020

When does the OnePlus 11 concept release?

OnePlus held the Cloud 11 event on February 7th, 2023. Here, the company launched many products, including the flagship OnePlus 11 5G, the new OnePlus tablet,  the earbuds, and more. Also, the company hinted at a new concept smartphone. 

Finally, the company unveiled this new concept phone, the OnePlus 11 Concept, at MWC Barcelona 2023, showing off the flashy new cooling features. Unfortunately, OnePlus isn’t going to release this smartphone to the consumer market. It is just a concept phone to ho off some cool new features the company is working on. But the company has stated that five lucky OnePlus Community members will receive this new concept phone and discuss their experience with the device. But, the company hasn’t stated when or how these lucky five community members will be selected. However, if you want to join the OnePlus community, go to their website and join. It’s pretty easy.  

OnePlus 11 Concept specifications

This latest OnePlus 11 Concept unveiled at MWC Barcelona 2023 is all about flashy design. The concept smartphone features glowing blue pipelines on its back. These pipelines represent OnePlus’s new cooling technology, the Active CryoFlux.

However, adding this new cooling liquid to the smartphone has its advantages, according to OnePlus. The company quoted 2.1 degrees Celcius drop in temperature during gaming, which improves the performance, adding up to 3-4 frames. The fluid also works during charging, reducing the temperature by 1.6 degrees Celcius and increasing the charging speed by 30 to 45 seconds. According to OnePlus, an industrial-grade piezoelectric ceramic micropump pushes liquid throughout the device’s pipelines, taking up less than 0.2cm² of space.

These are the new technologies OnePlus is showing off at the MWC 2023 conference, but the company hasn’t specified anything about what is under the hood. However, all indications point toward the OnePlus 11 5G; we already know its specs.

OnePlus 11 Concept release FAQs

Is this the first concept smartphone from OnePlus?

This is the third OnePlus concept smartphone. The first concept phone from the company was named the OnePlus Concept One. It was based on the OnePlus 7 Pro. It was a McLaren-themed device where the company used electrochromic glass to darken the portion over the back camera.

The next was the OnePlus 8T concept, where the company used electrochromic glass to make a color-changing back panel.

Does OnePlus sell these concept phones?

No, these are experimental technology; OnePlus is showing off that it may come to reality in the future—for example, the electrochromic glass back panel. Currently, electrochromic glass is costly, and using it on a smartphone isn’t intuitive.
