New OnePlus 12 display leak points to a bigger, brighter screen
OnePlus is rumored to have switched display manufacturers for the device.
The end of this “Techtober” will mean the major phone releases of the year will be nearly done. We can only look forward to next year’s releases, with the flagships likely to feature Qualcomm’s next top chip, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset.
Of course, the smartphone featuring the new flagship processors will fare better and more powerful, and it looks like the OnePlus 12 could be one of the first smartphones to sport this new powerhouse chipset.
While DCS didn’t elaborate on the subject, the leaker shared the display specs for the 12th-generation OnePlus smartphone on a different Weibo post.
OnePlus 12 display spec leak
So, according to the leak, OnePlus has switched the display manufacturer for its upcoming flagship, quite like it was rumored to have done with OnePlus Open, its first foldable.
The new display for the OnePlus 12 comes from BOE, a 6.82-inch diagonal panel with an approximate resolution of 3,168 x 1,440 while sporting a 120Hz refresh rate and LTPO tech.
It sounds pretty great if you ask us. However, the older OnePlus 12 leaks have suggested a 6.7-inch screen similar to its predecessors.
That said, we think it’s possible OnePlus changed its displays as the older ones were prone to green line defect, which have bothered OnePlus customers globally.
Also, a larger display is a significant new addition that doesn’t really go with the latest leaked renders. So, either the new info is wrong, or we will get new updated OnePlus 12 renders pretty soon.
In addition to being larger, the new OnePlus 12 display could also feature 2,160Hz PWM dimming to reduce eye fatigue in low-light situations, and peak brightness is also expected to be 2,600 nits – even higher than the Pixel 8 Pro’s 2,400 nits.
The top variant of the next OnePlus flagship is also expected to sport 24GB RAM and 1TB internal storage. However, it is also believed the said top variant may not be available in all of the usual markets.
Also, the smartphone is said to resemble OPPO’s Find X6 Pro and is expected to launch in three colorways. Besides the usual Green and Black, the OnePlus 12 is also expected to come in a glossy White finish.
