We already knew many things about the OnePlus 12 months ago. In fact, we could even sense that its presentation would be more or less imminent due to this, but it has not been until now that It has been confirmed for December. It will initially be an event for China and with the presumed idea of ​​bringing it globally at the beginning of 2024.

After a year in which the OnePlus 11 has been the only high-end bastion of the Chinese brand, its successor points out ways with certain characteristics that, at least on paper, suggest considerable improvements compared to previous generations. We go over that and more below.

The curtain on the OnePlus 12 opens on December 4

Next year it will be a decade since we learned about the OnePlus One as the first device from a brand that intended to hit the market and that today continues to be one of the strongholds. At least for specification purposes. He OnePlus 12 will be the phone that will honor the 10 years of the brand.

And, despite the fact that it will still be presented in 2023, it will be a device destined to mark the high-end line of 2024. Its official presentation has been marked for the Monday December 4 in an event that will take place in China, but that we can follow by streaming. It will be at 7:00 p.m. local time in China and in Spain it will coincide with noon, at 12:00 p.m. peninsular time.

OnePlus has not revealed too many details about what it will present at this event, although in addition to the OnePlus 12, media like Gizmochina They suggest that the OnePlus Ace 3 would also see the light of day, a device that in the global market would be the most cutting-edge OnePlus Nord in the mid-range.

The camera and battery, presumed stars of the OnePlus 12

As usual, just because a phone has not yet been presented does not mean that it is not possible to know its specifications. This OnePlus 12 is no exception and although there is still some information left to know, a good part of its features have been leaked over the last few months.

The company itself confirmed a few days ago that for the camera one would bet on a 48 megapixel Sony LYT-808 main sensor, being a variant of the brand’s first foldable, the OnePlus Open. They even shared on Weibo some scenes portrayed by the OnePlus 12.

This sensor would also be accompanied by a 64 megapixel 1/2 inch periscope camera with optical image stabilization and 2.6 focal aperture capable of offering 3x optical zoom. It is also known that, once again, the cameras will be signed by Hasselblad.

The OnePlus 12 could mark the beginning of the end of the 5,000 mAh as the established brand in the high-end battery

Another specification leaked a long time ago and that would delight those looking for good autonomy without giving up fast charging is that it would have a 5,400 mAh battery which would leave behind the highly standardized 5,000 mAh. This would also come from the hand of a 100W fast charging via cable and 50W via wireless charging. In the absence of knowing data about his behavior in real life, he aims very high on paper.

Another piece of information that can be taken for granted in the absence of confirmation is that it will have Qualcomm’s latest and most advanced microprocessorhe Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. It would be accompanied by a RAM memory of up to 16 GB LPDDR5x type and with a 256GB UFS 4.0 storage (base).

Already in terms of design, and based on what was shown by SmartPrix and OnLeaks months ago, no important differences were seen compared to previous generations with a rounded camera module in the upper left part. In the front a 6.7-inch curved AMOLED display with 2K resolution and variable refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. The big question is whether they will improve the maximum brightness or remain at the 1,300 nits of the OnePlus 11.

In any case, there is very little left to clear up these unknowns. It will be that December 4, when the countdown will also begin for the global launch to occur and the OnePlus 12 to land in territories such as Spain.
