At the Cloud 11 event tonight OnePlus announced two new number series phones for the global market. We already know a lot about the premium OnePlus 11 since its Chinese launch last month and so here we will be shifting its focus to the new 11R. So without any further ado, let’s get into the official specs of the OnePlus 11R, along with its expected price and availability in Nepal.
OnePlus 11R Overview:
To start with, OnePlus 11R is the global variant of the Ace 2 which is a gaming-centric phone exclusive to the Chinese market. Interestingly, OnePlus announced the Ace 2 just hours before the Cloud 11 event where it was set to unveil the 11R.
Design and Display
One of the biggest changes in the OnePlus 11R compared to its predecessor comes in the form of design. OnePlus has completely revamped the design of the phone to make it look like the more expensive OnePlus 11. The camera bump at the back is particularly similar across the two phones. The circular metallic structure blends into the side frame creating a “flowing K-shaped light and shadow” design on the edge.
OnePlus fans may be pleased to hear that the alert slider has made its way to the 11R. This iconic OnePlus feature was missing from last year’s 10R and 10T. User’s also get an IR blaster on the top which is a first for any OnePlus smartphone.
Over on the front, the OnePlus 11R has a 6.7-inch AMOLED panel with 120Hz refresh rate and 720Hz touch sampling rate. The 1.5K pixel resolution means the screen produces sharper images than FHD panels while also consuming less power than 2K ones. It brings HDR10+ certification, as well as a fingerprint sensor embedded in the display.
Performance and Gaming
On the inside, the OnePlus 11R makes full use of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip by clocking the CPU cores to their full potential. This is paired with up to 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. For gamers, the phone comes with a 5177 sq. m eight-channel VC cooling with a 92% improved heat dissipation. In addition, the phone has a 6355 sq. m phase-change graphene for large-area heat dissipation.
OnePlus has also included a dedicated visual chip along with an in-house super-frame super-picture engine on the 11R. As a result, the company says the phone is able to run over 100 games at 120 fps. For a smoother experience, the HyperBoost 2.0 optimizes the individual frames in millisecond time.

To avoid interruptions during gaming sessions, the OnePlus 11R comes with 12 esports antennas with 360° coverage and LinkBoost 4.0 network optimizations. OnePlus 11R is a Wi-Fi 6 compatible phone and it even has a Wi-Fi overlay feature. In addition, it has Bluetooth 5.3, dual-band 5G, and full-fledged NFC.
Over on the back, the phone flaunts a triple-camera setup. Leading the line is the 50MP Sony IMX890 which is said to have better video capabilities than the IMX766 on the 10R despite featuring the same 1/1.56” sensor size and 1μm pixels. As expected with a semi-flagship phone it has optical image stabilization and can record 4K videos at up to 60fps, albeit with any stabilization.
Accompanying the primary camera is an 8MP ultrawide and a 2MP macro camera. Both the cameras use image sensors from OmniVision—Ov0810 and OV02B10 to be precise. The punch-hole on the front is home to a 16MP selfie camera that can record 1080p videos at 30fps.
Rest of the Specs
OnePlus 11R gets its juice from a dual-cell 5,000mAh battery. While the 150W charging on the OnePlus 10R was a major highlight, the brand has scaled it back to 100W its successor. Still, the new OnePlus 11R is no slouch as it can go from 0 to 100% in just 25 minutes. It also has the SuperVOOC S power management chip to prolong the battery’s life.

OnePlus 11R Price in Nepal and Availability
The price of the OnePlus 11R starts at INR 39,999 in India for the base 8/128GB variant. Since OnePlus 11 is already available for pre-order in Nepal and 11R is not, the company doesn’t look very keen on releasing the latter anytime soon here. Still, if it launches here, we expect the price of the OnePlus 11R to start at NPR 69,999 in Nepal.
