Top Spec OnePlus 12 Phone Might Not Reach Every User

OnePlus 12 fans, we’ve got some intel on the global specs you can expect when this phone launches outside of China. But an exclusive top configuration may stay locked to its homeland.

According to notable leaker @ishanagarwal24, the OnePlus 12 will offer 12GB RAM/256GB storage and 16GB RAM/512GB storage globally.

That means the maxed-out 24GB RAM/1TB storage option would remain exclusive to China. A bummer for power users hoping to splurge on the ultra-spec model!

The OnePlus 12 and cheaper 12R models are set to go global on January 23, 2024. That’s when we’ll get all the details on pricing and options for different regions.

Other OnePlus 12 specs projected to stay consistent globally include:

  • 6.82” 3168×1440 AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh
  • Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor
  • 5,400mAh battery with 100W wired/50W wireless charging
  • Rear 50MP main, 48MP ultrawide, 64MP 3x telephoto cameras
  • Front 32MP selfie camera

We know less about the OnePlus 12R, but rumors point to the older Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip to cut costs.

I’m bummed the max spec may not leave China, where phone brands often debut cutting-edge tech. As a power user, I’d love getting my hands on that overkill 24GB/1TB configuration!

But the global specs still promise fantastic performance and photography from OnePlus. And the 12R gives budget-minded folks a more affordable entry point.

Of course, we’ll have to wait for January 23rd to get the full rundown on OnePlus 12 pricing and options for different markets. But based on the leaks so far, it seems this phone duo will pack some serious value punch for Android fans worldwide.
