OnePlus 12 is expected to arrive in December with three cameras, and first rumors suggested a combination of 50 MP main, 50 MP ultra-wide and 64 MP telephoto shooters.
Today, leakster Digital Chat Station revealed that the ultra-wide cam will actually have a 48 MP 1/2” sensor and f/2.2 aperture, while the zoom lens will feature the 64 MP OmniVision OV64B sensor with OIS. The biggest surprise is the new main sensor – the 50 MP Sony IMX966.
According to earlier reports from the same source, the new Sony sensor will be equivalent in performance to the Sony IMX989 which is a 1”-type imager. Its smaller size will be compensated by the double-layer build, which improves the sensitivity.
The new sensor will be coupled with OIS, and will benefit from Snapdragon 8 Gen 3’s computational photography prowess. On top of that, the 64 MP telephoto camera, expected to have 3x optical zoom, will have even better low-light performance, once again courtesy of the new Qualcomm chipset.
The OnePlus 12 is reportedly arriving in December, with an expected debut in China and a global release in early 2024.
