Celebrating its 10th anniversary, OnePlus diverges from the AI hype with the OnePlus 12 flagship. Contrary to the industry trend, OnePlus emphasizes hardware prowess and cutting-edge specifications to make a compelling case for their latest smartphone.
1. Speed that Sets the Standard
Speed remains OnePlus’ trademark, and the OnePlus 12 upholds this legacy. Fueled by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, it flaunts two hardware variants – 12GB/256GB and 16GB/512GB. Crossing the 4700-mark in GeekBench tests, this device is not just a gaming powerhouse but excels in everyday use, ensuring seamless performance.
2. The Pinnacle of Display Brilliance
Boasting the most vibrant display in the market, the OnePlus 12 features an ultrasmooth 120Hz refresh rate on its 6.82-inch screen, reaching a peak brightness of 4500 nits. Regardless of how peak brightness is measured, OnePlus delivers a remarkable display, making it ideal for both binge-watching and gaming enthusiasts.
3. Gallery-Approved: The Alert Slider Returns
Addressing the desires of OnePlus enthusiasts, the alert slider returns with a new twist. Moving from the right to the left spine, it sits alongside a repositioned volume rocker and power button on the right, enhancing functionality for everyday usage.
4. Aesthetic Excellence: Design Elements that Shine
In terms of design, two standout features define the OnePlus 12. The bold rear camera module, a OnePlus flagship signature, and a stunning new shade named “Flowy Emerald” with a matte finish that adds to its premium appeal. Though a bit slippery, it certainly makes a statement.
5. Endurance in Daily Use: The Energizer Bunny Approach
While competitors tout generative AI, OnePlus focuses on practical scenarios. The massive 5400 mAh battery ensures the OnePlus 12 doesn’t falter during gaming marathons or weekend binge-watching sessions. With a 100W SuperVOOC charger, the device charges from 1 to 100 percent in under 30 minutes.
6. Flagship Features Galore
Addressing previous critiques, the OnePlus 12 introduces two flagship-level features. It supports wireless charging, and with the proprietary 50W AIRVOOC charger, it achieves 50 percent charge in just 23 minutes. Additionally, the device comes with an IP65 rating for splash and dust resistance.
7. Cool and Composed Gaming
Gamers will appreciate the new Dual Cryo-velocity VC advanced cooling system. The OnePlus 12 incorporates dual vapor chamber and Laval nozzle technology for efficient heat dissipation, ensuring consistently smooth performance.
8. Photography Excellence with Hasselblad
In partnership with iconic Swedish brand Hasselblad, OnePlus steps up its camera game. The OnePlus 12 boasts a versatile rear camera setup, featuring a 50MP primary lens, a 64MP portrait lens, and a 48MP ultra-wide lens, delivering sharp portraits and vibrant color processing.
