OnePlus 12 gets more expensive, but for a good cause


Each day, the list of specifications of the upcoming OnePlus 12 is getting clearer. In addition to the display, we are now learning more about the battery and cameras OnePlus intends to use. All of that has an impact on the expected price tag.

To start with the bad news; the OnePlus 12 will be more expensive than the OnePlus 11. At least that's what Yogesh Brar (@heyitsyogesh), no stranger to the world, thinks. According to him, the higher price is due to some specific specifications.

To name a few, OnePlus has set its sights on a screen panel from BOE. And it's the same screen as in the Oppo Find X6 Pro. OnePlus is said to have chosen it over Samsung and Tianma's screen because of some known issues, including green lines.

Very larger battery

Another decision that results in a higher price is the new battery. OnePlus does not opt for a 5000mAh large one, something we currently see frequently. But for an even larger 5400mAh one. That's 400mAh more than in the OnePlus 11.

New camera setup

The OnePlus 12 is expected to feature a camera system consisting of a 50MP main, 50MP wide-angle, and 64MP telephoto camera. The latter can zoom in 3x optically, thanks to a prism lens. Not only are the cameras sharper, but they can also zoom in further.

Somewhat more expensive

So all these design decisions mean that the OnePlus 12 will be slightly more expensive than the OnePlus 11 at the time. That one came out at a suggested retail price of €819 for the model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. A slightly higher price tag will still be relatively inexpensive for a flagship but will result in a more premium phone.
