The upcoming OnePlus 12 will feature a display with a peak brightness that’s twice as high as the panel on its predecessor, the OnePlus 11. According to a new Weibo post by well-known tipster Digital Chat Station, it will hit no less than 2,600 nits. At low brightness levels, the display uses high-frequency PWM dimming at 2,160 Hz.
The OnePlus 12’s display also gets slightly larger at 6.82 inches (from 6.7 inches), while the aspect ratio drops to 19.8:9 (from 20:9). This is due to the adjusted resolution of 1,440 x 3,168 pixels. Judging by the latest CAD renders of the new OnePlus smartphone, the display is slightly more curved than the panel of the OnePlus 11.
The new panel is made by BOE while the old one came from Samsung Display. OnePlus continues to rely on an LTPO display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. DCS also writes that the top configuration of the OnePlus 12 will have 24 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage. The old model could be configured with a maximum of 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage. In the meantime, OnePlus also launched the Ace 2 Pro with 24 GB/1 TB, so the move doesn’t come as too much of a surprise.
The OnePlus 12 should launch in China in December this year. The global market launch will follow shortly afterwards in January. The smartphone has of course the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset at the helm. And it features a new camera setup with a 50 megapixel main camera. There is a Sony IMX966 sensor underneath, which should keep up with the current flagship chip Sony IMX989. We also get a 48-megapixel ultra-wide camera and a 3x periscope lens. The battery capacity increases to 5,400 mAh (+400 mAh), the charging speed remains at 100 watts via cable. 50 watt fast wireless charging is back on board.
