What you need to know
- The OnePlus 11R will soon see the light of day in India with a February 7 launch.
- The company is also apparently confirming its first OnePlus Pad launch.
- Meanwhile, the OnePlus 11 prices for India have also been leaked.
The OnePlus 11R is one of the long-rumored devices said to launch alongside the OnePlus 11’s global launch, which is set for February 7. This is the day when we expect the flagship to be launched in several markets, including Europe and India.
The OnePlus 11 launch already took place on home soil at the beginning of this month. Many rumors pointed to a cheaper model called the OnePlus 11R releasing alongside the best Android smartphone OnePlus has ever made. However, we could not see the launch happening in the Chinese market, but that could not be the case with the global launch.
OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 11R will launch alongside the flagship smartphone on February 7. The confirmation can be noted through a tweet from OnePlus India and its website.

Earlier this month, we saw some leaked real-world images of the upcoming OnePlus 11R. Specs are expected doing rounds of the supposed cost-effective smartphone from the company. The standouts include a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, the return of the famous alert slider, the introduction of an IR blaster, a triple rear camera setup with a 50MP primary sensor and a bigger battery with claimed 100W charging support.
It’s good to see that OnePlus is bringing options to the table with the OnePlus 11 and not just presenting a premium flagship model to consumers. Especially in the highly competitive Indian market which already has other premium smartphones in the segment to choose from.
While the launch of the OnePlus 11 and OnePlus 11R is now confirmed, OnePlus India is further sharing what to expect from the Cloud 11 OnePlus event next month. This involves the next generation OnePlus Buds Pro 2 and the OnePlus TV 65 Q2 Pro. We’re also expecting a glimpse of OnePlus’ first-ever mechanical keyboard, which has already been teased.
Another exciting product may have been accidentally teased, as OnePlus India’s website (opens in new tab) reveals that OnePlus is likely ready to launch its first ever tablet, called the OnePlus Pad. A screenshot from PhoneArena shows the name of the device on the website, although a cursory look at the teaser seems to have removed the mention of the OnePlus Pad.
We’re not sure what to expect from the OnePlus Pad, but given the company’s close ties to OPPO, it wouldn’t be too surprising to see an OPPO Pad clone of some sort. Hopefully we’ll learn more at the OnePlus 11 global launch.
Meanwhile, as the Cloud 11 launch gets closer and closer, we already have our first hands-on images of the new flagship in a green color.
We are familiar with the pricing of the OnePlus 11 for the Chinese market, but a new Pricebaba report has spilled the prices and models for the Indian market on February 7. According to the report, we could see three OnePlus 11 configurations, including a 12GB+256GB model said to cost Rs 54,999 (~$674), a 16GB+256GB model priced at Rs 59,999 (~$735), and the larger 16GB+512GB storage variant cost Rs 66,999 (~$821) respectively.
We will have to wait for the event to learn official pricing for India and the rest of the world.
