Oneplus 11 Concept Smartphone features Active Cryoflux cooling technology

Today, OnePlus debuted the smartphone known as the OnePlus 11 Concept that it has been hinting at for a few weeks. The device, which is not intended for mass production, is made to highlight the brand-new Active CryoFlux cooling system offered by the company.


Active CryoFlux is a fancy name for what is effectively a closed-loop liquid cooling system, much smaller than the kind found on a desktop PC but made for a smartphone. A ceramic piezoelectric micropump that pumps fluid through a network of tubes between an upper and lower diaphragm is the system's heart. On the gadget, the micropump occupies less than 0.2cm2 of space. The fluid is moved around the pipe that serves as a heat sink and radiator by the pump, absorbing heat from the SoC and slowly releasing it as it travels back to the pump.


According to OnePlus, the Active Cryoflux may lower temperatures by up to 2.1°C, giving gamers an additional 3–4FPS. Temperatures can drop by 1.6°C when charging, cutting the charge time by 30-45 seconds.

The remaining elements are mainly aesthetic. OnePlus claims that its unibody back cover, despite the fact that it plainly has a frame around the sides, is made of curved, transparent glass. The partially lighted tubing beneath is visible through the back cover. Together with a new Guilloche etching pattern, the region around the camera has also been lit.


It's uncertain whether OnePlus will ever use this technology in a finished smartphone. During CES 2020, the business displayed an intriguing self-tinting camera cover class on the Concept One, but it was never used on a product. The OnePlus 8T Concept's color-changing feature worked similarly. Of course, not every concept feature will ultimately go into production, and occasionally it's just cool to debut some of the fresh material you've been working on.
