The OnePlus 11R is the latest in the company’s lineup of streamlined flagship phones for the Indian market. These devices essentially try to capture the essence of a flagship device, but sacrifice a few to achieve a lower price.

OnePlus 11R review

The OnePlus 11R may look identical to the more expensive OnePlus 11, but internally it’s almost identical to the recently launched Realme GT3, which shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone at this point. It’s also identical to the OnePlus Ace 2, which is actually the exact same phone meant for China.

OnePlus 11R specs at a glance:

So what do we get and more importantly what do we lose compared to the more expensive OnePlus 11? A lot of things actually, but not to the extent that you would actually notice. The screen is still curved, but has a slightly lower resolution with around 35% fewer pixels. The chipset is last year’s flagship Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 rather than this year’s. The main camera is the same, but the ultra-wide is different and the telephoto has been replaced by a 2MP macro.

But the question is, how much of it will you really notice? Well, that’s exactly what we’re about to find out.


The OnePlus 11R comes in a standard red OnePlus packaging that includes the phone, a 100W SUPERVOOC charger with a USB-C connector and a USB-A to USB-C 2.0 cable that supports the proprietary fast charging. The screen protector is pre-attached.

The box also includes a black silicone case that has a fairly stiff cover for the USB port, making it a real struggle to plug in a cable every time.
