The OnePlus 11 5G has several remarkable features, but its camera is undoubtedly the most outstanding. The 3rd Generation Hasselblad Camera for Mobile, a “three-main-sensors” triple camera system, has been incorporated into the OnePlus 11 5G thanks to a new collaboration between OnePlus and the renowned camera company Hasselblad.
At the core of the camera setup is a 50-megapixel camera with a 1/1.56″ sensor size and ƒ/1.8 aperture which allows for more light intake. The main camera is assisted by an optical image stabilizer (OIS) for steady shots in both photo and video modes. As a result, this camera excels at taking brighter and sharper images and video in low-light conditions.
OnePlus 11 5G is ready for those who enjoy taking wide-angle pictures. A high-resolution, ultra-wide 48-megapixel camera with a 1/2″ sensor size is included with this smartphone. You can fit even more subjects into a single image with its 115° field of view lens while preserving the details. The wide-angle lens benefits from HDR and macro features as well.
The OnePlus 11 5G’s third camera is a 32-megapixel, portrait telephoto lens with autofocus. This camera supports Hasselblad Portrait Mode, enabling you to easily take pictures with depth-tracking effects that are practically similar to those of DSLRs, as well as bokeh and light flare effects.
With the help of their partnership, OnePlus and Hasselblad have given the OnePlus 11 5G some distinctive characteristics. You can take stunning photos with more than a billion colours thanks to an upgraded Natural Colour Calibration with Hasselblad that offers industry-leading colour science. OnePlus and Hasselblad also co-developed three unique color styles consist of Serenity (by Yin Chao, for portrait imaging); Radiance (by Ben Thomas, for humanity and cultural photography); and Emerald (by David Pesken, for landscape photography).
For video, the OnePlus 11 5G can record up to 8K video at 24 frames per second or 1080p video at 240 frames per second for Super Slow Motion. Ultra-steady pro mode with optical image stabilisation is supported during video recording.
OnePlus has done it again. They not only gave us the OnePlus 11 5G, a potent and versatile flagship device, but they also kept the pricing of the device competitive in the high-end market. OnePlus 11 5G, which combines the newest technology and software advancement, can handle your daily tasks with ease and still keep an effective battery life. Gaming with OnePlus 11 5G? No problem. This phone is powerful enough to handle the most demanding games in the market. Thanks to the HyperBoost Gaming Engine for GPA frame rate stabilization and Cryo-velocity VC Cooling system to cool off the heats, you can enjoy seamless gaming experience on the OnePlus 11 5G.
What shines the most on the OnePlus 11 5G is the cameras. With the Hasselblad-powered cameras added to the already amazing hardware specifications, OnePlus has catapulted this smartphone to the top tier. This smartphone can take stunning photos with precisely rendered colours because of Hasselblad imaging technology. I adore using this smartphone to take pictures. The images are clear and accurately coloured without being oversaturated. The only thing I would have preferred is a longer telephoto lens rather than the 2X normal lens. If a longer telephoto lens is available, the portrait mode can perform even better.
Overall, OnePlus 11 5G is a fantastic flagship smartphone. By adding Hasselblad cameras to an already amazing hardware configuration, it was further improved. Despite its minor flaws, it is strong enough to compete with the best players in the market, especially given its very competitive price. If you’re looking for a premium smartphone with excellent imaging capabilities and a reasonable price, the OnePlus 11 5G is an excellent choice.
