As for software, the Chinese variant will ship with ColorOS 14 while the international variant will be supposed to run on Oxygen OS 14 out of the box.
For lenses, the device will feature a triple rear camera setup at the back.

It houses a 5,400mAh battery with support for 100W wired fast charging and 50W wireless charging.
However, the global release date of the OnePlus 12 is still under the wrap. For instance, the OnePlus 11 launched in January this year, and the global release followed in February. In comparison, the OnePlus 12 is launching one month earlier than its predecessor, so we can expect the new OnePlus flagship to launch globally as early as January 2024.
