OnePlus 12 is expected to be launched in global markets including India in January next year. Although the launch is several months away, a Chinese tipster has leaked the phone’s camera details. The OnePlus 11 5G successor is said to carry a Hasselblad-branded triple rear camera unit, headlined by a 50-megapixel Sony IMX9xx 1/1.4-inch primary camera. Last year, the Chinese smartphone company fitted a similar 50-megapixel triple rear camera setup on the OnePlus 11 5G. The OnePlus 12 is said to run on Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC. It is expected to pack a 5,400mAh battery with support for 100W wired charging and 50W wireless charging.
