OnePlus 12 Renders Leaked Again: Design Changes for the Next Flagship
OnePlus, known for its flagship smartphones, is gearing up to launch its next device, possibly the OnePlus 12, in the coming months. As rumors continue to circulate, new renders have emerged showcasing some design changes for the rear camera setup. In this article, we will explore the leaked renders and discuss the anticipated design changes for the OnePlus 12.
Design Changes for the Rear Camera
The new renders of the OnePlus 12, courtesy of OnLeaks and MySmartPrice, reveal a few modifications to the rear camera arrangement. While the circular design, reminiscent of the OnePlus 11, is retained, a revamped ‘H’ branding will replace the previous conspicuous ‘Hasselblad’ one. This new branding gives the device a cleaner and more minimalistic appearance.
Another noticeable change is the removal of a small steel plate that was present in earlier renders. It was speculated that this plate housed a rumored periscope lens. As of now, it remains unclear whether OnePlus has completely dismissed this inclusion or plans to position it elsewhere. In any case, OnePlus aims to incorporate a periscope lens, similar to other flagship phones, to enhance zooming capabilities. The lens is expected to be a 64MP lens with an OmniVision OV64B sensor, a feature also anticipated in the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro Max.
Additional Design Details
In addition to the camera changes, we can expect the OnePlus 12 to feature a curved display with a center-placed punch-hole, the signature alert slider, and a sandstone-finish black color option. More design variations are also anticipated for the upcoming flagship device.
The OnePlus 12 is rumored to come with several impressive specifications. It is said to have a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with improved LTPO (Low-Temperature Polycrystalline Oxide) technology, offering a 120Hz refresh rate and a superior viewing experience. Powering the device is the highly anticipated Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, expected to debut next month. The OnePlus 12 may offer up to 24GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, catering to users who require ample storage space and seamless multitasking capabilities.
Keeping pace with the fast-charging trend, the OnePlus 12 is likely to be equipped with a larger 5,400mAh battery that supports 100W fast charging and 50W wireless fast charging. This will ensure that users can enjoy extended usage without worrying about battery life. The device will run on the Android 14-based OxygenOS 14, providing a smooth and optimized user experience.
Expected Launch and Conclusion
The OnePlus 12 is expected to be launched in December or early 2024, quite possibly in January. However, concrete details regarding the exact release date are still scarce. As more information becomes available, we will keep you updated. Stay tuned for the latest news and updates on the OnePlus 12.
