Let me spare you the flagship killer crap and recount some specs that you get on the latest OnePlus starting at roughly $600 aka half the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s price. Or close to Rs. 50,000 in India, which is still a healthy Rs. 30,000 lighter on the pockets than the cheapest iPhone 15 trim in India.
Logo supremacy, baby!!!
Here’s the kickass stuff on the OnePlus 12:
# 100W wired charging. You go from empty to full in 26 mins.
# 50W wireless charging. (The iPhone 15 Pro Max barely reaches half that mark… with a wire).
# A folded-lens telephoto camera with 120x digital zoom range.
# An OLED screen that delivers 4,500 nits of peak brightness, nearly double that of Apple’s best.
And, did I tell you that it comes in a stunning green shade, too?
Launched earlier today in China, and likely in January for the rest of the world, the OnePlus 12 is quite possibly the beefiest phone that OnePlus has delivered in the past few years.
Taking care of the silicon show is Qualcomm's top-tier Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC, paired with up to 24GB RAM (fuck me!!!) and 1TB of onboard storage. The design is familiar, if you’ve seen the OnePlus 11 series phones, but that’s not necessarily bad.
At the back is the next-gen 50-megapixel Sony sensor, paired with a 64-megapixel periscope zoom camera with 3x optical zoom range, and a 48-megapixel ultrawide snapper. The task of clicking weird selfies will be handled by a 32-megapixel snapper.
The screen is a 6.82-inch OLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate and QHD+(3168 × 1440 pixels) resolution. The lights are kept on by a bigger 5,400mAh battery this time around. The phone comes in white, black, and green colors, and is already up for pre-orders in China.
An India launch is right around the corner, and we’ll soon have a full-fledged review at Athenil in the coming weeks.
