The phone of the future may take an underwater route to get closer.
The camera department at OnePlus has been able to boast in recent years – focusing on larger sensors, better technology, and a higher-quality partnership with Hasselblad. But the company may be ready to go beyond everything that was previously offered with the OnePlus 12.
Long-time Indian blogger Yogesh Brar has tweeted what is needed for future releases based on intelligence from the tech sector.
Most of these numbers and the things they’re tied to won’t surprise you if you’ve been keeping up with the latest cell phones across the industry. We have seen OnePlus 11 sport a 6.7-inch QHD OLED display and a 5,000mAh battery with super-fast SUPERVOOC wireless charging… WELL, that peaked at 80W, while the OnePlus 12 is said to run as fast as 100W. And it’s natural to predict the next generation chipset – Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 – will be in the next device.
We will return to the cameras, however, and it is said that, although we will not see a big change in terms of bigger and wider cameras, we will see the telephoto camera of the OnePlus 11 modified to have a periscope system with double magnification. 64-megapixel resolution. That’s right, “periscope,” as in a mirror or prisms shining in a shaft instead of straight mirrors.
It’s a shame when you think about it, even if this is a OnePlus-first, parent company Oppo has been pouring. research and development of periscope cameras on mobile phones for years. The company took over the market with 2019’s Reno 10x Zoom and has been revising the technology ever since. The latest Get the X6 Pro it takes a more conservative approach and can have a zoom factor of 2.8x, but early criticism seems to indicate that it does a job of breathing in detail.
What is currently unknown is the zoom factor and the sensor that will be used for the OnePlus 12’s periscope camera. We suspect that more rumors should satisfy our curiosity before the release date, which is expected to be in December (especially in China).
