There seems to be no shortage of OnePlus 12 leaks lately. Following the rumored release schedule and camera specifications, the key specifications of the upcoming flagship Android smartphone have now been revealed. The new leak lends weight to earlier speculation that the device will have a humongous 24GB RAM and a 5400mAh battery.
Back in June, OnePlus’ parent company BKK Electronics was rumored to be planning to launch its first phone equipped with 24GB of RAM. That was confirmed after the China-bound OnePlus Ace Pro 2 was recently revealed to feature the aforementioned memory configuration.
This setup is believed to carry over to the OnePlus 12 which will be launched in international markets. Fortunately, a new report is shedding more light on this hypothesis and possibly confirming the exact key details of the device.
OnePlus 12 has improved memory, battery and charging
According to a trusted leaker digital chat site, OnePlus is currently testing the OnePlus 12’s engineering unit. The device is said to be powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, which is not surprising. But surprisingly, the maximum configurable RAM is listed at 24 GB while the base variant is getting 16 GB.
Other specifications mentioned for the OnePlus 12 include a 5400 mAh battery, which is significantly larger than the 5000 mAh capacity found in the OnePlus 11 (review) and other flagship devices. Additionally, the increased battery is coupled with 100W wired charging speed and 50W wireless charging.
The OnePlus 12 has a new screen panel and an expanded spindle motor.
The OnePlus 12 display is also said to have the same curved edges, but this one now uses a new panel with ultra-slim optics embedded in it. At the same time, the unit will carry a new vapor chamber cooling system and a haptics engine, both components will be larger compared to the previous one.
Coming to the camera, the OnePlus 12 is sporting an improved triple module. This is paired with a 50 MP primary sensor from the Sony IMX9xx model, a 50 MP ultrawide and a 64 MP periscope snapper with 3x optical zoom.
With these specifications, OnePlus 12 is building a big upgrade from OnePlus 11. But it is not clear that the changes will make the phone more valuable. For reference, the OnePlus 11 retails for $699. On the other hand, OnePlus is rumored to launch the OnePlus 12 in China in December and make a global announcement in January.
