The OnePlus 12 has been released in India as the first flagship phone with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip. It comes with a 50-megapixel primary camera with a Sony LYT-808 sensor and a 64-megapixel telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom. The company has also launched the OnePlus 12R, essentially a rebranded version of the OnePlus Ace 3 that was previously released in China. The OnePlus 12 and 12R run on Android 14-based OxygenOS 14 straight out of the box.
If you own a OnePlus 12 or 12R smartphone or plan to purchase one, this guide is tailored to meet your needs. In this tutorial, we will provide you with the latest OnePlus 12 and 12R firmware flash files and guide you through the process of installing them on your device.
Android enthusiasts often experiment with custom ROMs or modifications to access additional features or customization options. However, these modifications can sometimes lead to performance issues, errors, or lags. In such cases, reverting to the stock ROM may resolve these problems. Although a factory reset can sometimes fix these issues, there may be instances where it is not sufficient, necessitating the reinstallation of the stock ROM. By flashing the stock firmware on your device, you can restore its original performance, providing an experience similar to that of using a brand-new device.
OnePlus 12 and 12R Device Overview:
The OnePlus 12 and OnePlus 12R, both running on OxygenOS 14 based on Android 14, offer a range of advanced features tailored to different user needs.
The OnePlus 12 stands out with its larger 6.82-inch quad-HD+ LTPO 4.0 AMOLED screen, offering a higher resolution and peak brightness compared to the OnePlus 12R’s 6.78-inch 1.5K display. Both devices feature high refresh rates and Gorilla Glass Victus 2 protection, but the OnePlus 12 pushes the limits with a peak brightness of 4,500 nits and a dynamic refresh rate ranging between 1Hz and 120Hz. Powering the OnePlus 12 is the more advanced Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, while the OnePlus 12R utilizes the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, indicative of the OnePlus 12’s edge in processing power.
Camera capabilities also distinguish the two models. The OnePlus 12 boasts a triple rear camera setup with a 50-megapixel primary camera, a 48-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 64-megapixel periscope telephoto camera, all fine-tuned by Hasselblad for exceptional photography. In contrast, the OnePlus 12R features a simpler setup with a 50-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. Both phones have impressive front cameras, but the OnePlus 12 again takes the lead with a 32-megapixel selfie camera compared to the OnePlus 12R’s 16-megapixel one.
In terms of battery and charging, the OnePlus 12 offers a slightly larger 5,400mAh battery, supporting both 100W wired and 50W wireless charging, along with 10W reverse wireless charging. The OnePlus 12R, on the other hand, houses a 5,000mAh battery, compatible with 100W wired charging but lacks wireless charging options. Both phones share similar connectivity options, though there are slight differences, like the OnePlus 12R having Bluetooth 5.3 instead of the OnePlus 12’s Bluetooth 5.4. Additionally, the OnePlus 12’s IP65 rating for dust and splash resistance adds an extra layer of durability compared to the 12R.
