OnePlus 12 was launched in China on December 5. The device features Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC and a 5,400mAh battery with support for 100W SuperVOOC wired charging. The phone is offered in four storage configurations and three color options. The smartphone succeeds the OnePlus 11, which was launched in India in February this year. The OnePlus 12 will also launch in global and Indian markets soon. The company has now confirmed a launch timeline for this.
The company had earlier confirmed the global launch of the OnePlus 12, including in India, via the phone's live microsites on its UK, US and Indian websites. The microsites have now been updated to indicate that the phone will launch in these markets in early 2024.
While the Indian site doesn't offer an exact launch date, the UK page, under the Terms and Conditions section of a contest, notes that the launch will take place in late January. Notably, the timeline for this contest was previously stated to be from November 27 to January 23, suggesting the launch date could be January 24. However, the competition end date has now been removed.
Meanwhile, another tipster had suggested that the OnePlus 12 will be launched globally in January 2024, alongside another model. However, the leak had not confirmed which models would be included in the lineup. There is speculation that a OnePlus 12R model could be launched as a successor to the OnePlus 11R.
