OnePlus went ahead and introduced the OnePlus 12 at a special event held in China to mark the company’s tenth anniversary. OnePlus 12 is one of the most impressive new phones and it brings the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, up to 24 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage. Wireless charging returns after being dropped from the OnePlus 11 and OnePlus has also blessed its latest flagship with an IP65 rating against dust and water jets.
There’s a stunningly curved 6.82-inch LTPO AMOLED display with a resolution of 1,440 x 3,168 pixels and an adaptive refresh rate of 1-120 Hz. The BOE-made panel is advertised to output up to 4,500 nits of peak brightness for HDR content or 1,600 nits in normal use. OnePlus also boasts a 2,160Hz PWM dimming feature and a class-leading blue light filter.
Rounding back, the Hasselblad-branded camera setup features a 50MP main shooter with Sony’s dual-layer stacked Lytia 808 sensor. This is the same sensor used on the OnePlus Open with 1.12µm pixels and a 24mm equivalent f/1.7 lens with OIS.
The main shooter features a 70mm equivalent 64MP telephoto module with 3x optical zoom and up to 6x lossless zoom via in-sensor zoom. The third shooter is a 14mm equivalent 48MP ultra-wide camera with an IMX581 sensor.
OnePlus 12 ColorOS 14.0 boots based on Android 14 in China and will arrive in international markets as OxygenOS 14.
The phone packs a 5,400 mAh dual-cell battery which is the largest seen in a OnePlus phone to date. Another interesting thing is that the OP 12 supports up to 50W wireless charging as well as 10W reverse wireless charging. If you prefer old-fashioned wired charging, you can go up to 100W speeds.
