OnePlus 12 Launch? Guess what? The OnePlus 12 has finally hit the global stage after its debut in China, and it brought some friends along – the OnePlus 12R and the OnePlus Buds 3. They’re giving the company’s lineup a fresh kick for the next round of competition with other Android flagships.

Now, the OnePlus 12 launch is keeping things familiar with the look we loved in the OnePlus 11 – that cool camera setup, a glass back, and that handy three-stage alert slider.

But here’s the thing, it’s not totally cool with water. Unlike some phones that can handle a dive, the OnePlus 12 launch is water-resistance is at an IP65 rating. So, no, it’s not a fan of pool parties. But on the bright side, it can handle some water splashes. 

OnePlus 12 Basic Specs

OnePlus didn’t hold back with the OnePlus 12 launch as powerhouse. It’s rocking the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset. In China, you can go all out with 24GB RAM and 1TB storage, while globally, we’re still doing great with 16GB RAM and 512GB storage.

Boosting the battery game, they’ve juiced it up to 5,400mAh, a notable upgrade from the OnePlus 11. Even after 1,600 charging cycles, it’s holding strong at 80% capacity. And the charging game is on point with a speedy 80W wired charge (100W in China) and a slick 50W wireless charge. Yep, wireless charging is back in the game, making wires a thing of the past!

OnePlus 12 Display Specs

As the OnePlus 12 launch, it flaunts a 6.82-inch QHD+ OLED screen, and what’s cool is that it’s not just any display – it’s a 120Hz LTPO display by BOE. And get this, it can drop down to a mere 1Hz, catering to your need for smooth scrolling or conserving battery when things are more static.

Now, about that brightness – it hits a whopping 4,500 nits at its peak, joining the ongoing brightness war among smartphones. While peak brightness matters most for HDR content, OnePlus claims the phone still supports up to 1,600 nits of brightness in high brightness mode. That’s like having your own little sunshine in your pocket!

OnePlus 12: A Significant Leap in Camera Technology

OnePlus 12 Launch is embracing a Camera Upgrade! Hasselblad joins the OnePlus 12 party, addressing past camera concerns. Syncing with the OnePlus Open, it features a powerful 50MP main camera (LYT-808), a wide-angle 48MP camera (IMX581, 14mm), and an exciting 64MP 3x periscope camera (Omnivision OV64B).

For the first time, a standard OnePlus model sports a periscope camera with a nifty f/2.6 aperture, promising better low-light shots. Highlights include impressive portrait shots and a slick 6x zoom capability (likely through cropping and super-resolution magic). Adding a color boost, there’s a multi-spectrum color sensor for accurate hues. Flip to the front, and you’ll find a 32MP camera in a punch-hole cutout, ready for stellar 4K/30fps video recording. This camera setup, unveiled with the OnePlus 12 Launch, is set to compete head-to-head with the Galaxy S23 and give the Pixel 8 a run for its money.
