After the past two-three years of declining sales and fan backlash, OnePlus has made a comeback with the successful launch of the OnePlus 11 and the OnePlus 11R.

The company did an excellent job with the designs by giving both the OnePlus 11 and OnePlus 11R unique aesthetics while maintaining a shared brand identity.

It is an excellent strategy, and it seems to be sticking around, with leaked images suggesting it’s in play for the upcoming OnePlus 12R.

While the OnePlus 12R’s design is getting only a minor facelift, the spec sheet looks quite different than its predecessor. 

According to OnLeaks, the OnePlus 12R is expected to sport a 6.7-inch 1.5K AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, offering a smooth visual experience.

Under the hood, the smartphone is likely to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, which is Qualcomm’s current flagship chipset.

However, it is worth noting that the successor, Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, will likely replace it by the time the OnePlus 12R launches.

To complement the powerful chipset, the OnePlus 12R is expected to come with 16GB of memory and at least 256GB of internal storage.

Additionally, the battery will receive an upgrade to 5,500 mAh and support 100W fast charging, ensuring longer usage times.

Camera improvements seem to be a priority for OnePlus in the OnePlus 12 series. Leaks suggest that both the flagship OnePlus 12 and the mid-range OnePlus 12R will receive camera upgrades.

The primary and ultra-wide cameras on the back will have the same MP count, 50MP and 8MP, respectively, but it’s unclear if it’s the same sensor.

However, the 2MP macro camera will be replaced by a 32MP telephoto sensor. The front-facing selfie camera will be the same 16MP as the OnePlus 11R.

Lastly, the smartphone is expected to come with Android 14-based OxygenOS 14 out of the box.
