5 Reasons why the OnePlus 12 could be a game-changer

Forget fleeting thrills, the revolution is near. Brace yourselves for the OnePlus 12, where innovation, design, and performance become one. This isn’t just another phone; it’s the phone. While others scramble for scraps, the OnePlus 12 that is all set to launch on January 23rd will redefine the game.

Here are five reasons why the OnePlus 12 leaves the competition in the dust and makes the Samsung S24 look like yesterday’s news.

Performance Prowess

The OnePlus 12 is a perfect representation of the synergy between powerful hardware and intelligent software. It takes the fast and smooth performance to the next level with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Mobile Platform, offering faster CPU and GPU speeds with improved power efficiency.

It is equipped with LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 ROM supported by RAM-Vitalization and ROM-Vitalization to ensure a consistent and prolonged fast and smooth experience.

Unlike some competitors who skimp on RAM, the OnePlus 12 packs a hefty 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM. This ensures that apps remain in memory for faster switching and less reloading, keeping your workflow seamless.

In-comparison, the Samsung S24 and S24+ wield the Exynos 2400 SoC in several markets, including India, and have only 8GB and 12GB of RAM, respectively, and the S24 Ultra has Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 with 12GB of RAM.

Battery Life and Charging Speeds

The battlefield of modern smartphones isn’t just about processing power and cameras; battery life and charging speed are becoming increasingly crucial battlegrounds.

King-Sized Battery:  In this arena, the OnePlus 12 packs a mammoth, 5400mAh battery, which is 8% bigger than the 5000mAh battery in the Galaxy S24 Ultra.

Lightning-Fast SuperVOOC: OnePlus’s signature charging technology returns in full force with 100W wired charging. This translates to a full charge in a mere 26 minutes, putting the “fast” in “fast charging.” By comparison, the Samsung S24 still sticks to 45W charging, taking upwards of an hour for a full charge.

The OnePlus 12 also comes with 50W AIRVOOC wireless charging, compared to 15W charging in the Galaxy S24 series.

VC Cooling

In the high-octane world of flagship smartphones, performance is king, but without proper cooling, that crown can turn scorching hot. To tackle this thermal challenge, OnePlus is bringing their industry-leading Dual Cryo-velocity VC cooling system in the OnePlus 12.

Unlike most competitors, the OnePlus 12 boasts two VC (vapor chamber) plates, effectively doubling the cooling surface area. The Micron-level 3D Capillary Dissipation accelerates the coolant flow to expedite the entire heat dissipation process.

Compared to rivals like the Galaxy S24, the OnePlus 12’s VC system covers a significantly larger area.


The display is where users spend most of their time, making it a crucial battleground.

Feast your eyes on the brightest smartphone display ever – the OnePlus 12 boasts a peak brightness of 4500 nits, compared to the Samsung S24’s 2600 nits. That’s almost double the brightness!

Experience buttery-smooth visuals with the 120Hz refresh rate and LTPO technology. Every OnePlus 12 display undergoes rigorous single-pixel calibration for exceptional color accuracy and consistency across the entire panel.

Protect your eyes with the Nature Tone display that adjusts the white balance based on ambient light, reducing eye strain and providing a more comfortable viewing experience, especially at night.

If you crave the brightest, smoothest, and most comfortable viewing experience, the OnePlus 12 looks like a clear winner.


Capturing life’s precious moments deserves exceptional detail and artistic flair. When it comes to smartphone portraits, the telephoto lens plays a crucial role in creating that coveted studio-like blur and depth of field.

The 3x optical zoom of the OnePlus 12 allows you to get closer to your subject without sacrificing image quality. The OnePlus 12 excels at blending the subject and background seamlessly. The OnePlus 12’s 3x Periscope Telephoto Camera offers a clear advantage, and sets it apart from the solution of the Samsung S24.

The OnePlus 12 is set to be released at the OnePlus Smooth Beyond Belief Launch Event at 19:30 IST on January 23, 2024. The company is selling  tickets for the event.
