The upcoming OnePlus 12 is set to make a splash in the smartphone market with its sleek design and three vibrant color options – White, Green, and Black. The company recently unveiled the phone’s appearance, and while it doesn’t bring groundbreaking surprises, it stays true to the leaked images and maintains the essence of the OnePlus 11.
OnePlus 12: Get Ready for the upcoming OnePlus flagship
Mark your calendars for December 5 at 14:30 local time, as that’s when the grand unveiling will take place. Interestingly, the December 4 keynote, which was anticipated for significant announcements in celebration of OnePlus’ ten-year anniversary, won’t feature any new revelations.
What sets the OnePlus 12 apart is its inclusion of a periscope lens for the telephoto camera. Marking a significant advancement for the brand. While the OnePlus Open boasts a similar square design, it lacks folded optics. Making the OnePlus 12 the pioneer in this technology for the company.

Examining the images closely, you’ll notice the continuation of the four circles arranged in a square formation, reminiscent of the OnePlus 11. However, the LED flash has bid farewell to the circular island, making room for a fourth small circle. Speculations suggest that this space might be for RGB sensors or a cutting-edge 3D ToF sensor.
Based on internal testing, it has been determined that the optimal position for gaming antennas is between the forefingers of the user when the phone is held in landscape orientation. However, the space is currently occupied by the Alert Slider on the OnePlus 11. By relocating the Alert Slider to the opposite side of the phone, better gaming antennas can be deployed on the OnePlus 12.
The repositioning of the Alert Slider presents a challenge in ensuring optimal antenna signal strength on the same side of the phone. To tackle this issue, OnePlus utilizes Ultra-compact Full-band Antenna technology and industry-first Alert Slider Antenna Integration technology to minimize the space occupied by the Alert Slider to the greatest extent possible. As a result, a balance between better antenna signal performance and the presence of the Alert Slider is achieved on the OnePlus 12. According to the lab test data by OnePlus, the gaming antenna signal can be improved by 3dB, with the game latency reduced by 15%.
If you’re eagerly awaiting the launch, the countdown has begun, with the event scheduled to unfold next week in China. For those outside the Chinese borders, don’t fret – the global unveiling will to take place in January. Promising a wider audience the chance to explore the OnePlus 12’s exciting features and enhancements. Stay tuned for an immersive experience that could redefine your smartphone expectations.
