OnePlus 12: Everything you need to know

Although the OnePlus 11 has only been on the market for a few months, given the company’s slogan of “Never Settle,” it should come as no surprise that rumors about its successor are already circulating. Here’s everything we know so far about the OnePlus 12.

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 late-year release.

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 follow in February 2024.

The OnePlus 11 was released in China in January 2023, with a global release following in February.

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

Instead of a OnePlus 10, we were presented to a OnePlus 10 Pro variant and the OnePlus 10T follow-up. Here’s how much the two models cost:

  • 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

With the upcoming smartphone, we don’t anticipate OnePlus deviating too much from the OnePlus 11 stats. So, depending on the setup you want, you should have enough of change left over after purchasing the OnePlus 12.

What new features will we see in the OnePlus 12?

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 area it takes up, the flash has been relocated from the main island to the top-left mount.

The display will be a 6.7in, 2K AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate, according to both SmartPrix and Yogesh Brar. 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.

The phone’s processor will be upgraded from the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in the OnePlus 11 to the yet-to-be-released Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. SmartPrix adds that this will be coupled with 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 256GB of UFS 4.0 storage, however it’s unclear whether or not this is the starting standard.

Then there’s the matter of the cameras.

The OnePlus 11’s 50Mp (main), 48Mp (ultrawide), and 32Mp (telephoto) setup seems to be replaced with a 50Mp (main), 50Mp (ultrawide), and 64Mp (periscope) configuration.

The latter is clearly the highlight, thanks to its ability to give more optical zoom. This would put the OnePlus 12 on par with top-tier phones like the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, Honor Magic 5 Pro, and Google Pixel 7 Pro, which all include periscope lenses. However, SmartPrix anticipates that it will still have a 3x zoom periscope, which is lower than the magnification of some of the top 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 adds that the selfie camera should use a 32Mp sensor.
