One of the company’s executives has just confirmed the OnePlus 12 global launch date. According to the Economic Times India, Alexander Vanderhaeghe, confirmed the news. He is a Country Manager of OnePlus Benelux, and he confirmed January 23, 2024, as the launch date.

That is the date was first shared by Max Jambor, a well-known tipster, and now seemingly confirmed by a OnePlus employee. OnePlus still has to officially confirm the date, though, of course.

Alex Vanderhaeghe allegedly confirmed the date during a special event held in Antwerp, Belgium. That event was held to celebrate the company’s 10th anniversary. He said: “The OnePlus 12 will be presented globally on January 23, 2024”, which is a rather clear confirmation.

OnePlus is also set to introduce the OnePlus 12R, alongside the OnePlus 12. The company’s R series of devices was exclusive to India thus far. This smartphone is rumored to be available in a number of additional markets, possibly even Europe and the US. It will be inferior to the OnePlus 12, of course.

The OnePlus 12 was already announced in China, so there’s not much mystery surrounding its design or specs. The all-new OnePlus 12 does resemble its predecessor, though it is more powerful, of course.

The OnePlus 12 brings back fast wireless charging, after its predecessor ditched the feature entirely

This handset actually brings back some much-requested features. It includes 50W wireless charging, while the OnePlus 11 didn’t include wireless charging at all. It also improved water and dust resistance compared to its flagships.

The OnePlus 12 has a very compelling camera setup, and it’s also very powerful in general. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 fuels the device, while OnePlus included plenty of high-end RAM and storage too.

A 5,400mAh battery is included too, and in addition to 50W wireless charging, 100W wired charging is included. The same goes for a charger, by the way.
