The OnePlus 11 is already out, of course, but that doesn’t mean the Chinese brand has nothing left to show off at MWC23 in Barcelona. Meet the new concept that should show the future of Android smartphones.
The MWC is one of the biggest tech fairs in the world. In Barcelona, various makers of mobile products gather to showcase the latest models and share their vision of the future. OnePlus, of course, cannot be absent from this event. The company shows off its special concept phone.

It is, of course, remarkable to see OnePlus exhibit a new 11 in Barcelona. Actually, you can see it mostly as a preview of what awaits us in the coming years.
What immediately stands out about the OnePlus 11 Concept is the sparkling back. The one of the recently released 11 is rather ugly, but with the 11 Concept it is quite different. The blue lines make for an original design, as well as being functional.
The blue lines you see on the back of the phone is the so-called Active CryoFlux. This technique makes it possible to cool phones even better. This is useful for several things. For example, you can charge a phone faster and the picture during intensive use (such as gaming) becomes even better.
From gaming PC to Android smartphone
OnePlus came up with this idea for the 11 Concept by recreating the cooling capacity of gaming PCs in miniature format. This is how it fits on a smartphone, of course. At its core, this phone has a piezo ceramic micro pump, which allows coolant to flow through the pipes. This pump takes up less than 0.2 cm2, making it fine to build in.

Although the OnePlus 11 Concept’s camera is similar in appearance to that of the regular 11, there is another difference besides the blue cooling lines. For example, it is surrounded by Guilloché etching. This is a decoration technique you normally see mostly on luxury timepieces. So you don’t get anything out of it, but it does look cool.
As you can see, this version of the OnePlus 11 is a concept. As such, it probably won’t hit the market and is only meant to show off future features. So maybe we will see some of these novelties back with the OnePlus 12.
