The latest One Plus 12 flagship smartphone has arrived with lots of internal improvements. While it still maintains the sleek and minimalist design with a matte finish on the back panel from its predecessor One Plus 11, its slightly curved display gives the phone a more premium look and feel.
OnePlus 12 also launched the OnePlus 12R, which is a more budget-focused device with lower specs and a cheaper starting price. The 12R runs the older Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor and has a pared-back camera setup and a shorter software support period.
How much does the OnePlus 12 cost?
The base model offers 256GB of storage and 12GB of RAM for $800 (₦1,120,000), or you can upgrade for an additional $100 to the more robust model, which offers 512GB of storage and 16GB RAM
The cheaper OnePlus 12R starts at $500 (₦700,000) for the 128GB model with 8GB RAM. For $100 more you can upgrade up to 256GB of storage and 16GB RAM.
Powerful performance: The OnePlus 12 features the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, offering smooth and fast performance for all tasks, including gaming.
Stunning display: The 6.8-inch AMOLED display boasts a QHD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and HDR support, delivering a vibrant and immersive viewing experience.
Improved camera system: The OnePlus 12 comes with three rear Hasselblad-branded cameras including a 64-megapixel sensor that offers 3x optical zoom that captures decent photos and videos in most lighting conditions.
Longer battery life: The phone packs a 5400mAh battery, which is larger than previous OnePlus models and should provide ample power for a full day of use.
Faster charging: The phone supports 100W wired charging and 50W wireless charging, allowing you to quickly top up the battery when needed.
Return of features: The alert slider and headphone jack, which were missing in previous models, have made a comeback in the OnePlus 12.
Lower IP rating: The OnePlus 12 has an IP65 water and dust resistance rating, which is decent but the leading smartphones on the market offer better protection.
No expandable storage: The phone does not offer expandable storage, so you need to choose the storage option that best suits your needs.
Price: At $799, it’s not the most expensive flagship phone but it may not be as budget-friendly as some other options. Good thing they have a cheaper option with the One Plus 12R.
The OnePlus 12 is a solid flagship smartphone offering a powerful processor, a gorgeous display, and a long-lasting battery. However, a lower water resistance level, and non-expandable storage, might be dealbreakers for some users.
