OnePlus 12: Everything you need to know

    Leaks point to significant upgrades

    As we approach closer to the debut of the OnePlus 12, it should come as no surprise that rumors continue to circulate.

    Given that the company’s motto is “Never Settle,” it’s no surprise that development on a OnePlus 11 successor looks to be nearing completion. As a result, we already have a solid notion of what to expect.

    Everything you need to know about the OnePlus 12 is right here.

    When will the OnePlus 12 be released?

    There hasn’t been any official word from OnePlus on when we’ll see the next model, but all indicators point to a reveal toward the end of 2023.

    According to both Max Jambor and Yogesh Brar, OnePlus will unveil the 12 in China in December, with Brar adding that the worldwide launch will take place in January 2024, “rather than February as some people are reporting.”

    The OnePlus 11 was released in China in January 2023, with a global release following in February. As a result, the OnePlus 12 appears to be arriving a month earlier than its predecessor.

    How much will the OnePlus 12 cost?

    At the time of writing, OnePlus has not provided any concrete pricing information. We can look at prior models to see how they match up for any hints:

    • OnePlus 11 (8GB/128GB) – $699/£729/€849
    • OnePlus 11 (16GB/256GB) – $799/£799/€919

    There wasn’t a OnePlus 10 model, as instead we were treated to a OnePlus 10 Pro model and the OnePlus 10T follow-up. Here’s how those two models were priced:

    • OnePlus 10 Pro (8GB/128GB) -$899/£799/€899
    • OnePlus 10 Pro (12GB/256GB) – $969/£899/€899
    • OnePlus 10T (8GB/128GB) – $649/£629/€699
    • OnePlus 10T (16GB/256GB) – $749/£729/€799

    However, considering the rumored changes listed below, a price increase for the OnePlus 12 is extremely likely. However, it is difficult to forecast how much more costly it will become.

    What specs and features will the OnePlus 12 have?

    Although the release date is still unknown, leakers have already disclosed what they believe to be the design and specifications of the OnePlus 12.

    Let’s start with the design, which we’ve seen in OnLeaks renderings and SmartPrix releases:

    The renderings show a design similar to the OnePlus 11, but with a few notable differences. The bezel around the display is slimmer on the front, and the punch-hole selfie camera has relocated from the screen’s corner to the center.

    More intriguingly, we can see a long periscope zoom lens on the camera island on the back, which corresponds to rumors that OnePlus will adopt this more sophisticated form of telephoto lens. Because of the extra space it takes up, the flash has been relocated from the main module to the top-left mount.

    In terms of specifications, both SmartPrix and Yogesh Brar have said that the display would be 6.7in QHD with a 120Hz refresh rate. That’s the same as the OnePlus 11, however Brar has subsequently tweeted that the phone would feature a “improved new gen display,” implying that there may be some more minor changes.

    However, according to the most recent information released by Digital Chat Station on Weibo (via GSMArena), the OnePlus 12 will have a 6.82in display, which is somewhat larger than the OnePlus 11’s already enormous 6.7in screen.

    That’s not all; in addition to the bigger screen, the maximum brightness is predicted to rise to 2,600 nits. This would be consistent with Brar’s prior claim, which estimated a peak brightness of over 2,000 nits. According to reports, the OnePlus 12 will have a brightness of more than 2,000 nits.

    Brar also stated that the IP rating of the OnePlus 12 will be upgraded from the IP64 of the OnePlus 11. It may even equal several flagship phones and receive IP68 certification.

    The phone’s processor is likely to be updated from the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. According to SmartPrix, this will be paired with 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 256GB of UFS 4.0 storage, however it’s unclear whether this is the starting point.

    According to Digital Chat Station, the OnePlus 12’s top-tier version will have 24GB of RAM and 1TB of storage, although this may only be available in China. This is an improvement over the previous model, which had a maximum combination of 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.

    While Brar mentions a pretty ordinary 5000mAh battery, SmartPrix anticipates a relatively huge 5400mAh cell instead. Both parties agree on 100W wired charging. Brar also announced the reintroduction of 50W wireless charging as well as the addition of reverse wireless charging.

    However, depending on the locale, 100W charging may not be available internationally. It’s probable that 80W charging may be limited in the US, as seen in the OnePlus 11.

    The 50Mp primary camera appears to be remaining, but the ultrawide will be upgraded to 50Mp, and a new 64Mp periscope will replace the present 32Mp telephoto. It should make the OnePlus 12 even better for zoom photography. SmartPrix anticipates that it will still only have a 3x optical zoom, which is less than the magnification of several significant competitors.

    Brar has also tweeted that the primary camera would receive a new image sensor, implying that there will be an improvement there as well. According to a Weibo leak, this will be an IMX9 sensor, maybe the 1in IMX989. Finally, SmartPrix claims that the selfie camera will include a 32Mp sensor, up from the OnePlus 11’s 16Mp sensor.

    It will be some time before we see the model, so things might easily change. With that in mind, keep checking back as we’ll be updating this post as additional information becomes available.
