In a well-planned move, OnePlus 12, has been teased by OnePlus at the BOE conference event in Beijing, China. The company offered insights into the phone’s OLED screen technology and chipset, providing the public with a sneak peek at its new offering. OnePlus has timed it perfectly as Qualcomm is set to launch Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 at the Snapdragon summit in Hawaii. Qualcomm is expected to announce that the OnePlus 12 will be one of the first few phones to come with Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.
OnePlus 12 Display and Design Teasers
At the BOE conference event, OnePlus showcased a few models of the OnePlus 12, but chose to conceal the device’s design by displaying it within a protective case. While the phone’s back camera module remained hidden, it was evident that the device featured a sizable square camera bump and an alert slider on its right side. The phone displayed minimal bezels around its screen, with volume and power buttons located on the opposite side. On the front, the OnePlus 12 featured a punch-hole display, consistent with its predecessors. Detailed design aspects are yet to be disclosed by the company, presumably to build anticipation ahead of the official launch event.
The ‘Oriental Screen’ and Display P1 Chip
Regarding the display, OnePlus is touting the OnePlus 12‘s “Oriental Screen,” featuring OPPO’s first-generation display chip, Display P1. Additionally, a high-precision pixel-level calibration algorithm promises improved image quality, higher brightness, and reduced power consumption. Notably, the flagship smartphone has secured a DisplayMate A+ certification and supports a 2K resolution, although the precise display size remains undisclosed. Speculation suggests it may retain the 6.7-inch LTPO screen seen in the OnePlus 11, consistent with leaked information.
The display boasts a peak brightness of 2,600 nits, slightly below the recently launched OnePlus Open, which offers 2,800 nits. Nevertheless, the OnePlus 12 surpasses recent flagship phones in India with its brighter display. OnePlus claims the screen will also offer more than double the lifespan of conventional phone displays and deliver the “most eye-protective” viewing experience.
Powerhouse Performance with Snapdragon 8 Gen 3
OnePlus officially confirmed that the OnePlus 12 will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, corroborating previous leaks regarding the display and chipset. Other key details about the upcoming flagship phone are yet to be disclosed, and the official launch date is yet to be announced by the company.
The OnePlus 12 is undoubtedly one of the most eagerly awaited smartphones of 2023, with enthusiasts and tech enthusiasts eagerly anticipating its full specifications and features. Stay tuned for further updates as OnePlus gradually unveils more details about its upcoming flagship device.
