We’re still a bit far away from the launch of OnePlus’ next flagship device, the OnePlus 12, although it’s never too early for some good old-fashioned internet leaks. Currently, the OnePlus 11 reigns as the brand’s supreme blockbuster handset, but it looks like the internet has been rather busy trying to dig up what it can on OnePlus’ yet-to-be-released powerhouse smartphone.
At the moment of course, these leaks are all unconfirmed, at least by OnePlus or any other official entities, but they paint a pretty interesting picture as to what we can expect from the OnePlus 12 – what do we have so far? Let’s find out!
It’s not uncommon for smartphone manufacturers to re-use existing designs for future devices, especially in the case of handsets like the iPhone 13 and 14, and the Galaxy S22 and S22 Ultra. With that in mind, a handful of images from tech website Smartprix and OnLeaks show that the OnePlus 12 might end up looking familiar – a little too familiar, that is.
The renders show a design that’s very reminiscent of the OnePlus 11, especially on the device’s rear panel. The OnePlus 12 is predicted to come with a very similar look to its predecessor, with the same circular styling of the camera module, as well as the off-centre placement on the back. There’s also a curved display, something that we’ve seen on several OnePlus phones already, and it looks like the company will be using a 6.7-inch display, with 2K pixel resolution.
Internal Hardware and Cameras
As for what’s inside the phone, rumors from Chinese social networking site Weibo suggest that the OnePlus 12 will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, a mobile SoC which still hasn’t been released or announced yet, but we have little doubt is currently in development at the time being. It only makes sense, especially since OnePlus flagships always feature the latest high-end chips from Qualcomm.
The phone might also come with a triple-camera array on the rear, with a 50-megapixel main Sony IMX sensor, a 50-megapixel ultrawide lens, as well as a 64-megapixel periscope telephoto lens. Based on the renders shown, it looks like OnePlus will still retain the Hasselblad branding for the 12, at least for now. It’s also expected that the phone will come with a 5000 mAh battery, with support for 150W fast-charging speeds, something that’s not yet seen on a majority of flagship devices.
With all that being said, it looks like the OnePlus 12 is shaping up to be an impressive Android phone. In any case, we can expect more OnePlus 12 leaks to pop up soon, although do keep in mind that there’s still no official word or teasers from OnePlus themselves.
