After declaring that it will unveil a series of monitors on December 12, Chinese electronics brand OnePlus announced that it will cooperate with Keychron to launch a mechanical keyboard supporting full customization. With this news, the brand also announced that it will celebrate its ninth anniversary with the release of the “OnePlus Featuring” cooperation plan, joining hands with other firms and bringing a burdenless digital life to OnePlus users.
The new keyboard will have a durable structure and soft touch, offering custom options such as various switches and keycaps. OnePlus plans to share more details about it on December 15. OnePlus co-founder and CEO Pete Lau stated, “I am very excited to let you know the product will go live early next year. More details will be released in the first quarter of 2023.”
In addition, AR glasses from OnePlus may come soon. On the morning of December 6, Lau released an online survey on his social media account, writing, “While our Industrial Designer is working closely with the winner of the AR Wearable Design Contest on a mock-up prototype, the AR Team in our Research Institute is looking for user perspectives. I told them I’d help spread the word.”
There are also new developments about the latest mobile phones from OnePlus. On December 6, a smartphone model codenamed “PHB110” was found to have passed the network access audit of China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. Although the applicant is OPPO Guangdong Mobile Communications Co., Ltd., this model is obviously a new phone of OnePlus, given the codename rule. Some bloggers directly called this device the OnePlus 11. The official website, however, has not released photos or configuration information of this new model.
As for the partial configuration of OnePlus 11, Chinese tech industry blogger Digital Chat Station disclosed that the new model will adopt a 2K curved screen with a notch in the upper left corner. Besides being equipped with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, it will also adopt UFS 4.0 and will have a version with 16GB memory.
