Renowned smartphone manufacturer OnePlus is reportedly working on its latest flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 12. While the OnePlus 11 series has already been released, including the budget-friendly OnePlus Ace 2 and OnePlus Ace 2V, these models have not gained the same level of success as the OnePlus 11. Recent leaks have unveiled information indicating that the company is diligently developing the OnePlus 12, which is expected to be launched next year. The leaked information provides insight into the specifications of the OnePlus 12.
What to Expect from the OnePlus 12:
According to a reputable tipster known as Digital Chat Station, who shared the information on the popular Chinese microblogging website Weibo, OnePlus is reportedly testing a new periscope camera on their “SM8650” products. This model number suggests a possible association with Qualcomm’s next-generation flagship-grade chipset, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. However, the leak does not explicitly confirm that it is specifically for the OnePlus 12 model. Considering the presence of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, which was featured in the OnePlus 11, it is likely that OnePlus will continue with high-end processors in the OnePlus 12.
The leak further suggests that the official announcement for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is expected towards the end of this year. Additionally, another tipster named Max Jambor mentioned that the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has plans to introduce several camera upgrades in their upcoming flagship smartphone in 2024, including the testing of new periscope lenses.
With an improved and advanced periscope lens, the OnePlus 12 is anticipated to offer enhanced zoom capabilities. It is worth noting that similar cameras are commonly found in flagship-grade phones such as the Samsung Galaxy 23 Ultra. However, specific details regarding the camera specifications are currently unknown. Further information regarding the upcoming OnePlus smartphone is expected to be revealed in the near future.
