We know that the next-gen Qualcomm Snapdragon flagship chip will be announced earlier to allow the manufacturers to design their new premium smartphones before the end of the year and sell them before the Chinese Spring Festival. Today, a Weibo leaker said that OnePlus is going to launch its next-gen high-end phone called the OnePlus 11 before the end of the year. Of course, it will sport the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 flagship chip.
At present, the most powerful flagship of OnePlus is the OnePlus Ace Pro. The global version is known as the OnePlus 10T. The latter sports the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip and has a maximum of 16GB of memory. The AnTuTu benchmark score exceeded 1.1 million.

Now, the OnePlus 11, sporting the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, is about to debut, and the phone will once again refresh the performance record of the Android camp. If nothing else, its AnTuTu score will exceed 1.2 million.
As for the chip itself, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip is based on TSMC’s 4nm process. It uses a new “1+2+2+3” octa-core architecture design, abandoning the “1+3+4” three-cluster architecture on the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. Among them, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2’s super core is upgraded to the Cortex X3, the large core is upgraded to the Cortex A715, but the small core is still the Cortex A510.
Specifically, the Cortex X3 and Cortex A715 are upgraded versions of the Cortex X2 and Cortex A710, respectively. Both are 64-bit cores. Arm has abandoned the AArch32 instruction set on both the Cortex-X3 and Cortex-A715. So it is fully switching to a 64-bit architecture.
Compared with the Cortex X2, the Cortex X3 has 22% higher performance and 11% higher IPC; the Cortex A715 and Cortex A710, under the same power level and manufacturing process, have 5% higher performance and 20% higher energy efficiency.
In addition, the OnePlus 11 will come with the instantaneous bandwidth technology used by the OnePlus Ace Pro for the first time. Due to the latter, the nanosecond data throughput will be increased to 16 times that of the previous one, greatly improving the utilization of large memory.
On the OnePlus Ace Pro, with 16GB of memory, the company managed to keep 35 apps in the background, and the app startup speed increased by 16%.
