It’s official. After a barrage of speculations, rumors, and leaks, the OnePlus 12 made its official launch in China earlier on Tuesday. It brings along Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 along with up to 1TB storage and 24GB of RAM plus wireless charging and a periscope telephoto lens. Let’s take a deeper look at the flagship offering.
OnePlus 12 Pricing in China
Talking about OnePlus 12 pricing in China, the base variant with 12+256GB config goes on sale at CNY 4,299 (or INR 50,600/-). The 16+512GB goes on sale at CNY 4,799 (or INR 56,500/-). The next is 16GB+1TB at CNY 5,299 (INR 62,400/-) and the top-most 24GB+1TB at CNY 5,299 (or INR 68,200/-). Do note that these prices are for the Chinese market and since we are yet to get the flagship device in India and globally, the prices for both will differ.
The OnePlus 12 is available in white, black, and green colorways that we have seen in leaked renders a few days ago. The sales commences on December 11 in the home country.
OnePlus 12: More than a speedy chipset
Well, we have to say that OnePlus took the position of the first few brands to get the almighty Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC with the graphics handled by Adreno 750 GPU. It comes with up to 24GB of LPDDR5X RAM which is way more than enough. There’s 1TB of UFS 4.0 storage as well, again, more than enough even if you are an avid photographer or someone who stores a lot of data locally.
The OnePlus 12 uses a BOE X1 Oriental 6.82” AMOLED panel that boosts 4,500 nits of peak brightness. For context, this is almost 1.5x or 2x compared to most of the flagship devices out there. The display has a resolution of 1440 x 3168 pixels and comes with a variable 120Hz refresh rate for snappy transitions and animations.
Moving on to the optics, we get a 32MP Sony IMX615 front camera housed in a tiny punch-hole cut-out. On the back, we see a triple rear camera housing a 50MP Sony LYT-808 primary cam with OIS, a 48MP IMX581 UW lens, and a 64MP OV64B periscope lens paired with 3x telephoto zoom. The camera bump, as seen in the images above, is connected to the side frame much like the predecessors.
The device draws power from a 5,400mAh battery which is nearly double what the Samsung Galaxy S22 brings onboard. There’s 100W wired and 50W wireless charging support marking the comeback of a much-anticipated feature. There’s 10W reverse wireless charging as well just in case you’ll need it. Apart from that, the phone comes paired with connectivity features such as Bluetooth v5.4, Wi-Fi 7, Type-C 3.2, an IR blaster,
Though you can call OnePlus a bit behind when it comes to water resistance, the OnePlus 12 has upped it to IP65 instead of IP64 on the OnePlus 11. Your phone will be protected against water jets but not submerged.
