The OnePlus 11, which is currently the Chinese company's flagship device, launched back in January. Its successor is already being worked on, as it turns out, and it will unsurprisingly be called OnePlus 12.
According to a new leak from a usually reliable source, the OnePlus 12 will be launched in China in December. The "in China" qualifier is important because the global release might happen a few weeks (or months) after that.
The phone is currently in engineering sample form, and in this form it sports the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset at the helm, a 6.7-inch QHD OLED touchscreen with 120 Hz refresh rate, and a 5,000 mAh battery with support for 100W fast wired charging.
The OnePlus 12 has three rear cameras: a 50 MP main, a 50 MP ultrawide, and a 64 MP periscope zoom camera, which would be a first in the OnePlus lineup, although definitely not a first for parent company Oppo. Aside from that, there don't seem to be many exciting hardware upgrades at first glance - the screen is the same size as its predecessor's, with the same resolution and refresh rate, and the use of the next-gen chip is pretty much par for the course.
Keep in mind that we're still pretty early in this phone's development cycle, seeing as how it's seven months away from actually launching, so things might change between now and then. And of course we'll bring you more details once we have them.
