OnePlus, the popular Chinese smartphone manufacturer, is gearing up for the launch of its next flagship device, the OnePlus 12. While the company has yet to officially announce the global launch date, recent reports suggest that the OnePlus 12 could hit Indian shores on January 24, 2024.
OnePlus’ Promotional Campaign Hints at January 24 Launch
The possibility of a January 24 launch in India stems from a recent promotional campaign launched by OnePlus on its India website. The campaign, which started on November 27, 2023, and runs until January 23, 2024, clearly mentions the “day before OnePlus 12 launch event” as its end date.
While the India website curiously omits the specific date, the UK OnePlus website explicitly mentions January 23 as the end date, suggesting a global launch on January 24. Historically, OnePlus has maintained a consistent launch timeline for India and global markets, making it likely that the OnePlus 12 will indeed arrive in India on January 24.
OnePlus 12 Expected Specifications
The OnePlus 12 is expected to be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, paired with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage. The device is rumored to feature a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, a triple-camera setup on the back, and a 5000mAh battery.
OnePlus’ Continued Focus on the Indian Market
India has been a key market for OnePlus, and the company has consistently launched its flagship devices in the country within weeks of their global launch. The OnePlus 12 is expected to continue this trend, with the January 24 launch date aligning with OnePlus’ commitment to the Indian market.
