OnePlus 12 vs OLD Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra
A new contender stepped into the ring to challenge Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra’s dominance. The OnePlus 12, unveiled in China today, is gearing up for a global launch in early 2024. Moreover, it seems poised to go head-to-head with the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra. Here’s an exclusive sneak peek into the battle of the titans.
Unveiling the OnePlus 12: A Glimpse into Superior Specifications
Reports from the OnePlus camp indicate that the OnePlus 12 boasts a brighter 6.8-inch OLED screen with an astounding 4,500 nits peak brightness. Meanwhile, its powerhouse 5,400mAh battery, coupled with 100W fast charging, outshines Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra’s 5,000mAh battery and 45W fast charging. The OnePlus 12 takes the lead with a 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and 1,600 nits peak brightness in High Brightness Mode. Notably, the touchscreen remains responsive even when wet, ensuring a seamless user experience.
The Engine Under the Hood: Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3
Both contenders share the formidable Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor. However, the OnePlus 12 offers mind-boggling options with up to 24GB RAM and 1TB storage. In contrast, the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is rumored to start at 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. That will potentially give the OnePlus 12 a performance edge. The competition in processing power promises an intriguing showdown.
Capturing Moments: Cameras on Parade
The OnePlus 12 also showcases a formidable camera setup. That includes a 50MP primary camera with OIS, a 48MP ultrawide camera with autofocus, a 64MP telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom and OIS, and a 32MP selfie camera. While it supports impressive video recording capabilities, the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra elevates the game with its 200MP primary camera. It also boasts a 12MP ultrawide camera, a 10MP telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom and OIS, and a 50MP telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom. The cameras on both devices promise a visual feast. Still, Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra’s offering might just have the upper hand.
Beyond the Specs: Features and Pricing
OnePlus has upped the ante in terms of dust and water resistance, now rated at IP65. The OnePlus 12 also features Hasselblad Color Calibration, stereo speakers, Wi-Fi 7, Bluetooth 5.4, NFC, USB 3.2 Type-C port, under-display optical fingerprint reader, and 50W wireless charging. However, it falls short of Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra’s potential IP68 rating. The OnePlus 12’s pricing, starting at CNY 4,299 ($600), offers a budget-friendly alternative compared to the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra’s rumoured starting price of $1,200. This positions the OnePlus 12 as an attractive option for tech enthusiasts seeking flagship features without breaking the bank.
The Verdict: A Budget-Friendly Challenger Emerges
As the OnePlus 12 gears up for a global launch, it presents itself as a formidable rival to the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra. With a brighter display, larger battery, and competitive pricing, OnePlus is signalling its intent to disrupt the flagship smartphone landscape. The battle between these titans promises to be one for the ages, as consumers eagerly await the chance to get their hands on these cutting-edge devices. Stay tuned for the ultimate showdown!
