While the OnePlus 11 only made its way to the masses in February this year, more leaks about its successor have started to appear. The latest leaks comprise a set of computer-generated pictures of the OnePlus 12, showing how it retains most of the design elements while sporting a rumored periscope camera.
Based on the renders shared by prolific leaker OnLeaks (via SmartPrix), the alleged OnePlus 12 saw little change from the OnePlus 11 (review) when viewed from the outside. First of all, there is the circular camera hump behind that is located to the left, making it almost a twin of this year's flagship smartphone from OnePlus.
the obvious change would be the camera configuration, with the periscope lens located right below the two other rear sensors. This is believed to be a 64 MP sensor from Omnivision while the primary shooter is a new 50 MP IMX9 series mated to a 50 MP ultra-wide sensor. In addition, the LED flash has been relocated to accommodate the periscope lens that carries the Hasselblad brand.
Most of the changes can be seen from behind, with the entire panel sporting a sandpaper finish that is slightly similar to the black colorway of the OnePlus 11 albeit with a finer texture. The sides seem to retain the predecessor's buttons and their respective locations. These include the fan-favorite alert slider and USB-C port that is flanked by a speaker grill and microphone at the bottom.
Furthermore, we also spotted a punch-hole camera right in the center with razor-thin bezels on the left and right. In all probability, the screen will be headlined by a 6.7-inch AMOLED panel with a 120 Hz refresh rate, featuring an under-display fingerprint scanner. However, there is still no word on whether the brightness or resolution will see an improvement, if any.
The OnePlus 12 should be powered with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset and retain the 5,000 mAh battery capacity alongside an upgraded 150 watts charging speed. It should run on Android 14 right out of the box with Oppo's ColorOS skin. The flagship Android device should debut as early as December, but prior to that, OnePlus is expected to launch the OnePlus Open foldable in August.
