OnePlus is gearing up to make waves in the smartphone industry once again with the highly anticipated launch of the OnePlus 12. This latest flagship phone is set to hit the market in China on December 4, and it’s already generating significant buzz among tech enthusiasts.
The smartphone promises to deliver an improved design and a host of small refinements aimed at enhancing the overall user experience. One notable change is the relocation of the Alert Slider, which now resides on the left side of the device. This revamped slider also boasts an integrated antenna, a feature designed to boost gaming performance. According to OnePlus, internal tests have shown that this innovation improves signal strength by 3dB and reduces gaming latency by 15%.
The phone’s design is marked by a textured back and a Hasselblad-branded circular camera housing, maintaining the aesthetic appeal that OnePlus is known for. Consumers can expect three striking color options: Flowly Emerald (green), white, and Rock Black.
Under the hood, the OnePlus smartphone is set to impress with a 3x periscope camera featuring Hasselblad enhancements, Qualcomm’s powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip, up to a whopping 24GB of RAM, and a capacious 1TB of storage. The device is also slated to feature BOE’s latest 2K OLED panel with a peak brightness exceeding 2,600 nits.
But the excitement doesn’t end there. Leaks suggest that OnePlus is bringing back wireless charging to its flagship lineup, a feature eagerly awaited by many fans. The device will also support USB 3.2, promising lightning-fast data transfer speeds over USB-C. Additionally, the return of the IR blaster will allow users to control various electronic appliances with their OnePlus 12.
Global fans of OnePlus can expect the official unveiling of the OnePlus 12 in January 2024, likely coinciding with the Samsung Galaxy S24 series launch. OnePlus will reveal the global launch date on December 15, a slight deviation from the initial expectation that it would debut at the company’s 10th-anniversary event in China on December 4. Instead, the OnePlus 12 will have its own dedicated event on December 5, ensuring that the spotlight remains firmly on this exciting new flagship device.
