OnePlus has officially released its latest high-end smartphone, the OnePlus 11. It is ready to compete with the flagship smartphones with top-tier specs of other brands. But we will compare an earlier flagship deviceX with the new one from OnePlus: the Xiaomi 13 from the Xiaomi brand. Each of its specs in each department is almost close to each other. Which one will be more lifted of the two? Is it the OnePlus 11? Or the Xiaomi 13? Here are the rundown specs of the two devices to know the difference.
Design & Display
The OnePlus 11 and the Xiaomi 13 have beautiful rear designs but in different ways. On the other hand, the Xiaomi 13 has the edge over the OnePlus 11 due to the latter’s lack of IP68 dust/water resistance. The metal body of the Xiaomi 13 may be paired with either a glass or silicone polymer back. Turning to their fronts, the OnePlus 11’s display is more expansive, measuring 6.7 inches across and featuring a 2K AMOLED panel with a 120 Hz refresh rate. While the Xiaomi 13’s 6.36-inch Full HD Super AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate is respectable. You get to make the call on whatever design you prefer, but there’s no denying that the OnePlus 11’s screen is an improvement over the Xiaomi 13’s.
Camera & Speakers
Get in here, and I’ll take you to the camera section. Both brands have collaborated with other camera manufacturers in different ways. While the Xiaomi 13 has partnered with Leica for co-branding, the OnePlus 11 has teamed up with Hasselblad for a collaboration. While the Xiaomi 13 and the OnePlus 11 have a triple camera configuration, the OnePlus 11’s 50MP primary camera, 32MP telephoto lens, and 48MP ultrawide lens provide superior image quality than the Xiaomi 13’s 50MP primary camera, 10MP telephoto lens, and 12MP ultrawide lens. When it comes to taking selfies, however, the tables turn, as the Xiaomi 13 sports a 32MP front-facing camera and the OnePlus 11 a lower 16MP one. Regarding the audio quality, it possesses identical stereo loudspeakers; nevertheless, it does not have a 3.5mm audio port. It is clear from this section that the OnePlus 11 is much behind the Xiaomi 13 in terms of performance.
