The newest Android phone from the Chinese brand features a 120Hz AMOLED display capable of reaching a ludicrous (and record-breaking) 4,500 nits peak brightness.
A high peak brightness is useful for improving the appearance of HDR (high dynamic range) content, allowing the screen to show very bright highlights and very dark backgrounds at the same time.
Peak brightness also makes a phone’s display much clearer in strong and direct sunlight, though this generally isn’t a problem in northern Europe or for anyone living at relatively high or low latitudes. For comparison, the iPhone 15 Pro Max tops out at 2,000 – which is already more than enough, even on the UK’s sunniest days.
OnePlus 12 cameras
The OnePlus 12 will use similar camera hardware to that found in the OnePlus Open – the brand’s first foldable phone, launched earlier this year – meaning it gets a 50MP main camera, 48MP ultrawide and a 64MP telephoto lens with a periscoping, 3x optical zoom.
OnePlus 12 specs
Under the hood, the OnePlus 12 runs on the newest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, and can be configured with up to 24GB of RAM and 1TB of storage, so expect flagship-grade performance and speed.
OnePlus 12 price
The OnePlus 12 starts at ¥4,299 in China (around £480 or $600), but international prices will be higher. Considering the OnePlus 11 launched in February starting at £729, we can guess the new flagship will arrive at a similar price or upwards of it.
If you can’t wait around for the newest OnePlus, the OnePlus 11 is still an excellent option, and features in our round-up of the best Android phones.
OnePlus 11: Was £729, now £646.54, Amazon.co.uk
OnePlus entered the market as a trendy challenger brand, producing superbly built and highly refined Android phones at a fraction of the cost of the big-name flagships.
Since then, OnePlus has moved towards the mainstream, making premium phones (with big price tags to match) but the OnePlus 11 is a small return to form for the Chinese manufacturer. It’s a mid-price 5G Android phone running on a clean and streamlined version of the operating system, with a decent camera, a brilliant 120Hz screen and top-end performance.
