OnePlus 12 Review

OnePlus 12 Review

OnePlus recently unveiled its latest flagship, the OnePlus 12 series, and we've had the opportunity to explore the standout features of the OnePlus 12 compared to its predecessor, the OnePlus 11 5G. While a comprehensive review is still pending due to ongoing software updates, here's a glimpse into the key aspects of the new device.


The OnePlus 12 maintains the design language of its predecessor, the OnePlus 11, featuring a curved display, slim bezels, and a punch-hole selfie camera. However, subtle changes include the relocation of the front camera to the center of the top edge. 

The phone's back, adorned with matte glass and a circular camera island, reveals an increase in camera hole and island size. Notably, the OnePlus 12 feels larger and heavier, attributed to a bigger display, enhanced battery, wireless charging, and additional features.


Retaining the curved QHD+ display, the OnePlus 12 enhances it further with a 6.82-inch size, up from 6.7 inches on the OnePlus 11. The resolution stands at 3168 x 1440 pixels, offering a variable refresh rate ranging from 1 Hz to 120 Hz. 

A remarkable upgrade is the peak brightness, soaring from 1300 nits on the OnePlus 11 to an impressive 4500 nits. The ProXDR display, supporting HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, delivers vibrant colors and excellent brightness, making it ideal for HDR content consumption.

Processing Hardware

Powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, the OnePlus 12 continues the brand's tradition of utilizing cutting-edge SoCs. Available in two variants in India – 12 GB RAM with 256 GB storage and 16 GB RAM with 512 GB storage – both feature UFS 4.0 storage, distinguishing itself from the OnePlus 11's base variant with UFS 3.1 storage. 

The upgraded hardware ensures superior performance, with benchmark scores consistently surpassing the previous Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip found in the OnePlus 11.


The OnePlus 12 aims to elevate its photography capabilities compared to the OnePlus 11. The primary camera retains its 50MP configuration but introduces a newer Sony LYT-808 sensor with a wider aperture and larger pixel size. 

The ultrawide and telephoto cameras remain largely similar, but the telephoto lens receives a significant upgrade with a 64MP periscope telephoto camera supporting 3X optical zoom and 6X in-sensor zoom. The selfie camera sees a boost from 16MP to 32MP. Initial impressions suggest promising results, with further evaluation and camera samples to follow in the full review.

Battery and Charging

The OnePlus 12 features a larger battery capacity, increasing from 5000 mAh on the OnePlus 11 to 5400 mAh. Notably, wireless charging is introduced, supporting 100W SuperVOOC wired charging, providing quick charging times. 

Additionally, the device supports 50W fast wireless charging, requiring a separate purchase of the AirVOOC (wireless) charger.

Price and Initial Impressions

Priced at Rs 64,999 for the 256 GB variant and Rs 69,999 for the 512 GB model, the OnePlus 12 justifies its higher cost with added features and improvements. 

While the design remains consistent, enhancements across various aspects make the OnePlus 12 a reasonable upgrade over the OnePlus 11. Initial impressions are positive, promising a thorough evaluation in the upcoming in-depth review, including benchmark results and camera samples. Stay tuned for more insights.
