OnePlus has officially announced the global launch date for its anticipated OnePlus 12R, set for January 23. This announcement comes alongside the introduction of the OnePlus 12, marking a significant event for the brand. The OnePlus 12R, a rebranded version of the OnePlus Ace 3, is set to first make its debut in China on January 4.

In a departure from its usual market strategy, OnePlus has decided to release the OnePlus 12R in various global markets, including India, North America, and Europe. Traditionally, the "R"-branded phones were exclusive to the Indian market. This global expansion represents a strategic shift for OnePlus.

The OnePlus 12R is expected to feature two color options: Iron Gray and Cool Blue. A notable design change includes the repositioned alert slider on the left edge of the device, which is part of a new antenna system. This system is designed to enhance performance, especially during online gaming sessions.

The OnePlus 12R is also anticipated to house a 5,500mAh battery with 100W charging support and run on OxygenOS 14 based on Android 14.

The smartphone's display is rumored to be a curved-edge OLED panel measuring 6.78 inches, offering a 1.5K resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. For photography enthusiasts, the device is likely to be equipped with a triple camera system featuring a 50-megapixel main sensor (Sony IMX890 with OIS), an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 2-megapixel macro lens. Additionally, a 16-megapixel front-facing camera is expected for selfies and video calls.

As the launch date approaches, more details about the OnePlus 12R are anticipated to be revealed, giving a clearer picture of what consumers can expect from this latest offering by OnePlus.
