Yesterday, OnePlus launched the OnePlus 11 flagship smartphone in China with a starting price of 3,999 yuan ($580). The global launch of the device is scheduled for February 7.
The OnePlus 11 is currently available for pre-order in China and will go on sale for the first time on January 9. Li Jie, President of OnePlus China, started connecting with OnePlus fans as soon as the device was available for pre-order.
Li Jie shared in a Weibo post that the OnePlus 11 achieved the fastest sales record in the company’s history in just two hours. The president of OnePlus China also shared some words of gratitude for customers and fans of the brand.
However, the most interesting information of this post is hidden in the comments section. One Weibo user wrote in the comments of the post that he would be tempted to buy the OP11 if there was no Pro model available. In response, Li Jie claimed that the OP11 has come in its place and that there is no OnePlus 11 Pro.
This statement is in line with previous reports claiming that OnePlus will not launch a Pro model of its flagship this year. Considering that the company only launched the OnePlus 10 Pro last year without releasing a vanilla variant, this tactic is nothing new for the company.
