The 11R has just been unveiled as the latest OnePlus smartphone exclusive to India. It has been revealed as a way to get at the latest Android flagship look (albeit not all of the specs) at about 70% of the cost of a new 11. It is now joined in its R series by equally market-specific version of the OEM’s new flagship TWS earbuds.
The 11R has now been officially unleashed as the new “Shape of Power” on the Indian market. This is due to its specs, which, as some might expect, are identical to those of its Chinese-market equivalent the Ace 2, SuperVOOC S independent battery-management chip for its 100W/5,000mAh charging system included.
Nevertheless, the OEM asserts that the relatively cut-down 40-120Hz “Adaptive Dynamic Frame Rate” range for its series-first 1240p display are more than enough for vibrant, color-accurate gaming and content consumption. OnePlus has also landed a “world’s first” TÜV SUD certification for its “HyperTouch Engine” responses.
The 11 and 11R have launched in India with 8 or 16GB RAM SKUs of 128 and 256GB internal storage capacities respectively. However, the first option starts at INR 56,999 (~US$688), compared to INR 39,999 (~US$483) for the nearly identical-looking R version.
Then again, an 11 can be pre-ordered from now via channels such as Amazon, whereas a prospective 11R customer will not reach this stage until February 21, 2023.
OnePlus has now also announced that the second-gen Buds Pro will ship alongside their own R variant in India, although it did not go into the details of why these 2Rs will ship for INR 9,999 rather than INR 11,999 for the flagship 2s – except that they will not be available until March, whereas the new Dynaudio-tuned Accessories can be pre-ordered from now.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
