OnePlus 12 Unveil: Bigger Battery, Speedy Charge, and Sneak Peeks Galore!

Hey, get this – the OnePlus 12 is about to drop the curtain tomorrow (December 5), but OnePlus just can’t resist spilling all the beans beforehand. The latest scoop? Brace yourself – the battery is a beast at 5,400mAh. That’s even heftier than what you’ll find in the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and the iPhone 15 Pro Max. The official OnePlus account spilled the tea on Weibo, that Chinese social media spot. Just to put it in perspective, the Galaxy S23 Ultra rocks a 5,000mAh battery, and the iPhone 15 Pro Max lags behind with a 4,441mAh battery. No other top-tier phones are packing a battery this mighty, and leaks even hint that the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra might fall short.

This could be a game-changer for OnePlus, especially if that sizeable battery means epic battery life. Oh, and there’s more – the OnePlus 12 is boasting a 100W charging speed and flaunting 50W wireless charging. So, it’s not just big; it’s quick on the juice-up game too.

But hold up, there’s a bit of a letdown in the water resistance department. OnePlus spilled the beans that the phone is rocking an IP65 certification. It’s got decent dust resistance and can handle low-pressure water jets, but it’s not the waterproof champ like some of the other top dogs. Still an upgrade from the OnePlus 11’s IP64 rating, though.

Wait, there’s more – OnePlus execs are treating us to sneak peeks of the OnePlus 12 on Weibo, and it’s looking slick. We’ve already had the inside scoop on the camera (48MP main, 48MP ultra-wide, and a 64MP telephoto with 3x optical zoom), the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, RAM up to 24GB, storage up to a whopping 1TB, and a screen brightness cranked up to 4,500 nits.
