OnePlus is gearing up for the launch of its highly anticipated flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 12, set to elevate the success of its predecessor. Thanks to a collaboration between popular leakster @OnLeaks and Smartprix.com, we now have an exclusive first look at the device’s design and potential features. Notably, these renders are based on real-life pictures of a testing unit prototype.
OnePlus 12 Renders Reveal Striking Design Refinements
The OnePlus 12 introduces an elegant and sleek design with a glossy Black color, featuring the iconic OnePlus sandstone finish. Upon examining the renders, a significant change can be observed in the camera setup. Drawing inspiration from the OPPO Reno 10 Pro+, OnePlus has opted for a periscopic telephoto lens configuration, a departure from the traditional telephoto lens seen in the OnePlus 11. The periscopic telephoto lens has a distinctive black strip, lending an air of sophistication to the camera module.
While the overall design of the camera module remains consistent with its predecessor, the OnePlus 12 features a square-ish camera island that seamlessly blends into the side frame. Below the camera ring, a chromed-out stainless steel bump adds a touch of refinement. Due to the horizontal alignment of the periscopic lenses, space limitations within the module led to the LED flash being positioned outside the circular ring, placed at the top left corner of the island.
Moving to the front of the phone, the OnePlus 12 brings noteworthy upgrades. Early images suggest slimmer bezels compared to the OnePlus 11, with the placement of the selfie camera shifted from the top left corner to the center. It’s important to note that the OnePlus 12 follows the trend of recent flagship models with a punch-hole selfie camera design.
