OnePlus 11 rumored to get a ceramic finish and 16GB of RAM

The OnePlus 11 is one of the key flagship smartphones that we're expecting to launch during the course of 2023, and we've got some fresh information on what the handset might be bringing with it when it sees the light of day.

According to well-known tipster Digital Chat Station (via Pocket-lint), the OnePlus 11 is going to sport a metal frame with a ceramic body, while the RAM is getting bumped up to 16GB. The OnePlus 10 Pro topped out at 12GB of RAM.

There's apparently another upgrade on the way as well: according to the same source the OnePlus 11 will be one of the first phones to get UFS (Universal Flash Storage) 4.0 for its internal storage, offering twice the data speeds of the current UFS 3.1 technology.

Claim and counterclaim

Those would certainly be interesting and appealing upgrades for the next-generation OnePlus flagship, although we have seen ceramic before on the OnePlus X – and on several models from Oppo, the phone maker which has now merged with OnePlus.

As usual with these sorts of rumors, treat them with caution, even when the source is a reliable one (plans can change and inside information can be wrong, after all). Another tipster who often gets predictions right, tech journalist Max Jambor, says that the OnePlus 11 won't in fact appear with a ceramic body.

Jambor does agree with the UFS 4.0 rumor though, so it would seem that OnePlus is keen to pack as much cutting edge technology as it can into its next high-end product. The phone is expected to launch in the first few months of 2023.


Analysis: OnePlus in 2023

OnePlus hasn't exactly been consistent in its phone launches in recent years, what with the global pandemic and the merger with Oppo and everything else that's been going on – and that means we're not so certain about what's coming in 2023.

Through the course of 2022, we've had the OnePlus 10 Pro, the OnePlus 10T, the OnePlus Nord 2T, and the OnePlus Nord CE 2. As you can see from that list, the emphasis has been on mid-range phones, with only the OnePlus 10 Pro counting as an actual flagship.

There was never a standard OnePlus 10, for reasons that we're not all that clear on. Perhaps OnePlus felt the Pro moniker carried greater weight, or perhaps it felt that its phone launch calendar was already too crowded for this year.

In 2023, the situation might be reversed: we'll get a OnePlus 11 but not a OnePlus 11 Pro next year, according to our friend Max Jambor again, though the 'standard' phone will apparently have the 'pro' components fitted inside it.

Uber Eats exits seven markets, transfers one as part of competitive retooling

Uber Eats is pulling out of a clutch of markets — shuttering its on-demand food offering in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Honduras, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Uruguay and Ukraine. It’s also transferring its Uber Eats business operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Careem, its wholly owned ride-hailing subsidiary that’s mostly focused on the Middle East. “Consumers and restaurants using the Uber Eats app in the UAE will be transitioned to the Careem platform in the coming weeks, after which the Uber Eats app will no longer be available,” it writes in a regulatory filing detailing the operational shifts. “These decisions were made as part of the Company’s ongoing strategy to be in first or second position in all Eats markets by leaning into investment in some countries while exiting others,” the filing adds. An Uber spokesman said the changes are not related to the coronavirus pandemic but rather related to an ongoing “strategy of record” for the company to hold a first or s
