In addition to the OnePlus 12, OnePlus will also introduce the OnePlus 12R of the same name worldwide on January 23. Unlike the regular model, the 12R has not yet been announced in China and therefore little official information is known. The tipster Max Jambor has already shared more details about the device on Twitter.
According to the leaker, the OnePlus 12R will be equipped with a 6.78-inch ProXDR display, which offers an adaptive refresh rate of 1-120 Hz. While the OnePlus 12 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 under the hood, the Gen 2 is mentioned for the 12R. The SoC is reportedly paired with 8 or 16 GB lpddr5x and 128 or 256 ufs storage.
OnePlus also seems to be saving on the camera system: the 12R is said to have an IMX890 as the main sensor (50 MP), followed by an 8MP ultra-wide-angle sensor and a 2MP macro lens. For reference, the regular OnePlus 12 features a 50MP main sensor, a 64MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom, and a 48-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens. With a capacity of 5,500 mAh, the battery would offer 100 mAh more than that of its bigger brother. 100W fast charging is also available, but it is not known whether it supports wireless charging.
Jambor indicates that the phone will be released in China on January 4, followed by the global release on January 23. The recommended retail price is not mentioned. If the Chinese smartphone manufacturer uses the same strategy as with the previous generation, the OnePlus 12R may offer a lot for an attractive price. The OnePlus 11R, which is only available in India, is a quarter cheaper than the regular 11.
