In January 2023, OnePlus unveiled its flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 11. The phone came with many flagship specifications, including the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, a 5000 mAh battery, and 100-watt charging.
However, the 256GB storage variant with 16GB of RAM set the phone apart from its competitors. This high-end configuration offered users a level of performance and multitasking capabilities that was unmatched at the time.
According to fresh leaks from a renowned tipster, Digital Chat Station, the OnePlus 11’s successor, the OnePlus 12, will have variants of up to 24GB of RAM.

The display will be very sharp and responsive, making it ideal for various tasks. Furthermore, the display manufacturer is expected to be a Chinese company.
The cameras were one of the highlights of the OnePlus 11. It had good hardware and collaborated with Hasselblad for good Camera software. This year is no different, with the OnePlus 12 sporting a new, unannounced 50MP Sony IMX9xx sensor for the primary camera. Next to it will be a 50MP ultrawide and 64 MP 3x periscope telephoto lens, a first for OnePlus.
