First OnePlus 12 leaks reveal subtle design and camera improvements
OnePlus fans rejoice as a treat has arrived this morning in the form of a leak, courtesy of Smartprix and OnLeaks, of the upcoming OnePlus 12. The highly anticipated device follows the lead set by the OnePlus 11 last year by stepping up the design and hardware.  Check out the images below:

The above high quality images are renders based on reported real life photos of an actual prototype unit and our eyes are immediately drawn to the change in the camera module. Yes, that black strip you see is a periscopic telephoto lens, unlike the traditional telephoto lens that we saw in last year's OnePlus11.

This confirms previous rumors that the device would include this hardware. However, the rumors also claimed that the level of zoom for this lens would be 64MP, a detail that, of course, cannot be confirmed by looking at the renders.

Design changes can also be seen with the front-facing camera, with the hole-punch moving to the top center of the screen. This is a change to the previous design, which had the selfie camera positioned on the top left corner.

There are other subtle design choices that will be familiar to those with last year's model, such as the way the slightly offset camera module seems to merge into the side of the phone's frame, while also retaining the familiar placement of the alert slider, power button, and volume rocker. Similarly, the renders show a curved display, which lines up with the previous rumors that the device's display would be a curved QHD OLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate.

Overall, the renders show that OnePlus remains committed to this design language while also incorporating small changes to make the device feel more premium. Hopefully, we get more information soon on the internals of the device, but in the meantime what we are seeing now is promising.
