OnePlus: Liquid Cooling Gaming Phone!

Feb 28

OnePlus may no longer release cautiously. The Oppo-owned OnePlus 11 debuted in January. The 11R, targeting the expanding Indian smartphone market, came this month. The business now sells last year's 10T and 10 Pro, three affordable Nord devices, five earphones, and a tablet. Expect a new mechanical keyboard and foldables.

This week at MWC, the business showed a gadget that will never be sold. The OnePlus 11 Concept is a reimagining of the company's flagship. The significant differentiators indicate a corporation looking to take mobile gaming more seriously. It's unclear if it will release a gaming phone, as the market has been mixed.

Generational breakthroughs make meaningful gaming on the small screen more likely. “We will make a lot of efforts in technology development and design,” OnePlus President and COO Kinder Liu told TechCrunch through a translator. We will evaluate the market and technology maturity before commercialising these technologies.

Liu says OnePlus launched a liquid-cooled phone to gauge market interest. “We want to encourage constant innovation inside our company,” he continues.

"Active CryoFlux" is OnePlus's new tech. A 0.2 square centimetre piezoelectric ceramic micropump pumps coolant through a conduit behind the device and around the huge camera array. The procedure is illuminated by the device's glass back. It's cool and often compared to Phone (1), introduced by OnePlus cofounder Carl Pei's Nothing last year.

Since smartphone innovation has stalled, manufacturers are likely to change device design. Manufacturers need fresh ways to boost smartphone sales, which have declined across the board.

“Many young people like games,” says Liu. “Gaming is vital in their digital lives, and we will continue to improve their gaming experience. We discuss gaming development with users. We're talking about improving the gaming experience, and we think we'll have more time to talk to them."

The chats reference the company's longstanding user engagement. OnePlus' development was driven by community, but many consumers worry that being acquired by Oppo has changed that. OnePlus' OxygenOS and Oppo's Color OS were originally planned to unite. After user outrage, the firm retreated.

Liu believes stronger communication with the outside world may be enhanced.

After 5G adoption has slowed, will gadget makers focus on gaming? Devices like ASUS, Nubia, and Xiaomi focus on that experience. Yet, Samsung and Apple seem content to make gaming easier on their flagship devices. OnePlus has surprised me previously, but the latter seems more likely.
