A few days ago there was a rumor that the OnePlus 12 will come in December, just in time for the Christmas shopping season. Today another leak provides the most important technical data. Most of the changes are therefore only minor upgrades compared to the OnePlus 11. But some stand out, including the battery capacity. Also, the first ever periscope telephoto camera on a OnePlus smartphone will be on board.
The tip comes from the normally reliable tipster OnLeaks. Accordingly, the OnePlus 12 will feature a 6.7-inch LTPO AMOLED display with a QHD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset from Qualcomm takes over the drive, which should come out in October. There is also up to 16 GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 256 GB of UFS 4.0 storage.
A 50-megapixel main camera spearheads the camera system on the back, while the OnePlus 12 also gets a 50-megapixel ultra-wide camera and a 64-megapixel periscope telephoto camera. Exactly this new periscope zoom can also be seen on the renderings above. Oddly enough, according to today’s rumor, the periscope will only have a 3x optical zoom. Typically, these lenses provide between 5x and 10x magnification.
5,400 mAh battery
The selfie camera should have a resolution of 32 megapixels and OxygenOS 14 based on Android 14 takes on the operating system part. The well-known OnePlus alarm slider is also on board, as is an in-display fingerprint sensor. Finally, the second highlight. According to the tip, the OnePlus 12 will have a large 5,400 mAh battery under the hood, which charges with a cable with a fast 100 watts and wirelessly with 50 watts. From our point of view, this is a step that is overdue. Manufacturers have been setting the limit at 5,000 mAh even for their best smartphones for years. The matching wired charger is part of the scope of delivery.
