OnePlus is set to unveil the OnePlus 12 on December 5 in China, marking another significant launch for the brand. While details about the device's design have been sparse, a recent banner image on Oppo Mall has inadvertently given us a glimpse of what to expect from the rear design of the OnePlus 12. Additionally, this image has shed light on the color variants that will be available for the device.

The image reveals that the OnePlus 12 bears a striking resemblance to its predecessor, the OnePlus 11. It features a round camera module on the back panel, which appears to house three cameras. A fourth ring in the module contains various sensors and prominently displays the ‘H’ logo, symbolizing the Hasselblad branding. The LED flash unit is strategically placed at the top-left corner outside the circular camera module.
