OnePlus 12R unboxed

Ooh, it's been quite some time since I've had a OnePlus device in house.  

First thing my son said was "that's a nice box".  Teenagers.

So, on first glance, this model is as follows:

  • 6.78" @ 2780x1264 (120Hz)
  • Snapdragon 8 Gen2
  • 16GB RAM
  • 256GB storage
  • Main Cameras:
    • 50MP (wide, f/1.8, 24mm, 1/1.56", 1.0µm)
    • 8MP (ultrawide, f/2.2, 16mm, 112°, 1/4.0", 1.12µm)
    • 2MP (macro, f/2.4)
  • Selfie:
    • 16MP (f/2.4, 24mm, 1/3", 1.0µm)
  • 5500mAh
  • 100W charging (26min charging time)

Now, this is $799.99 as is.  You can knock that back to $669.99 if you want to halve your RAM and storage (but I think it's worth that extra $130).

On setting up a couple of points as I unboxed it and going through the motions of setting it up.  No Qi.  That is probably my r'uh r'oh moment for me.  I just have to have Qi (looking forward to the 12).

There also isn't any IP rating either listed.  That does have me a little more concerned - just means I'll have to just be aware when it's raining.

It also has a screen protector already pre-applied, and that's a cool 'saved me having to find one' feature.

Now, another neat 'feature' I liked was the fact that the back has a cool 'glittery' effect.  Looking at it 'dead on', and it's looking like a brushed metal back.  Slight tilt, and it's got a shimmery glitter look, which is reminiscent of the Nexus 4.  Very cool.

The last quick thought I had was the SuperVOOC - it'll charge at 80W, meaning a full charge in 26 minutes.  Very cool... but the adapter it has uses just a USB-A cord.  I can't get that with a C-C cord?  I'd already changed over most of my wall warts with C plugs.  Hrmm...

Okay, so I'll go play around and let you know my thoughts.
