OnePlus 12 global release date
According to frequent leaker Max Jambor, who also happens to be the source that shared the alleged Chinese launch details, OnePlus plans to globally announce the OnePlus 12 in January 2024. This would put the timing a month later than the local event, which is tipped to be scheduled in December this year.
The global launch normally means the availability start of the handset, so it's likely that the OnePlus 12 would be hitting stores right the day of the announcement, similar to the case of the OnePlus 11 (review).
When it comes to specifications, the OnePlus 12 is rumored to enlist major hardware improvements. The triple rear shooter is said to sport a periscope camera while keeping the Hasselblad branding. Internally, the device will be equipped with a more powerful and efficient Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC mated to 16 GB of LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 storage.
At the same time, battery capacity is rumored to increase from 5000 mAh to 5400 mAh. Charging speed is rated to be kept at 100 watts wired and 50 watts wirelessly. OnePlus 12 will run on Android 14 OS which will have skinned Oxygen OS 14 on top.
