OnePlus, the renowned smartphone manufacturer, is gearing up for its highly anticipated 10th-anniversary event on December 4th. As part of the celebration, the company has officially announced the launch of its flagship device, the OnePlus 12, set to debut in China on December 5th.
The unveiling comes with a sneak peek at the phone’s design, showcasing a cutting-edge centre punch-hole screen and an array of vibrant colors.

OnePlus 12 Unveiling: Get Ready for the upcoming OnePlus flagship
A distinctive feature of the OnePlus 12 is the inclusion of ‘H’ branding. Indicating the continuation of the partnership with renowned camera brand Hasselblad. The rear camera setup also reveals a noteworthy change: the flash is now positioned outside the camera ring. A departure from previous designs as showcased in official renders.
OnePlus has made a strategic shift with the placement of the Alert Slider on the left-hand side of the device. This adjustment serves a dual purpose—introducing a new integrated antenna and enhancing the phone’s performance, particularly in gaming scenarios. The company explains that after internal testing, it was determined that optimal antenna placement for gaming is between the forefingers when the phone is held in landscape orientation. The relocation of the Alert Slider to the opposite side facilitates better gaming antennas. Improving signal strength and reducing game latency. To overcome challenges related to antenna signal strength on the same side, OnePlus employs cutting-edge technology, including Ultra-compact Full-band Antenna and Alert Slider Antenna Integration, resulting in a 3dB improvement in gaming antenna signal and a 15% reduction in game latency.
