The global OnePlus 12 launch event will take place in January, it seems, with a major surprise. OnePlus is planning to launch more than one variant of the device. This information comes from Max Jambor, a well-known tipster.

Global OnePlus 12 launch event will take place in January

Max is almost never wrong when it comes to OnePlus information, so we have no reason to doubt him now. He claims, and was very clear about that, that the OnePlus 12 is not the only phone that will launch.

He was very clear about the ‘series’ part, which means we’re getting at least two OnePlus 12 devices. OnePlus stuck with one phone for the last two generations, the OnePlus 10 Pro and OnePlus 11 launched in 2022 and 2023, respectively.

It remains to be seen what will these two phones be called. Will OnePlus revert back to the vanilla and ‘Pro’ iterations, in which case the OnePlus 12 and OnePlus 12 Pro would launch? Well, we’ll have to wait and find out.

We’re seemingly getting more than one handset, hence the OnePlus 12 series mention

Up until now, every rumor and leak we’ve seen was referring to the OnePlus 12 as a singular smartphone. Nobody expected more than one handset to launch.

There’s a chance we’ll get the OnePlus 12 and OnePlus 12 Lite, in which case the OnePlus 12 would still be the single flagship-grade smartphone. That’s not as likely, but there you go, that’s also an option.

Having said that, the OnePlus 12 is expected to launch in China on December 4. That’s when we’ll get more information about the device. What’s interesting is that not even OnePlus is referring to the OnePlus 12 as the OnePlus 12 series. That makes the info from Max Jambor even more puzzling and surprising.

The OnePlus 12’s design already leaked, by the way, thanks to CAD-based renders. It’s very odd we didn’t hear anything about the second device up until now.
