With the OnePlus 12 to arrive in Malaysia this 3rd February, for the first time, OnePlus Malaysia is bringing in their R Series of phones – the OnePlus 12R to be made available soon but here’s what you need to know about it.

OnePlus 12R Malaysia

Unlike the OnePlus 12, the 12R aims to bring a flagship experience at a much more affordable price point by using the last generation processor – in this case, we find the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 powering up this phone, with 16GB RAM and 256GB storage which is sufficient for most use case scenarios. That said, this phone too gets the Trinity Engine experience which the 12 features, a bigger battery capped at 5500mAh (which supports SUPERVOOC 100W) and a rather similar Cryo-Velocity VC Cooling as the 12 but close to the OnePlus 11’s.

One big change however is that the OnePlus 12R is the world’s first smartphone to feature the LTPO4 – the latest generation of LTPO to offer a lot more quicker refresh rate and improved battery life as well. Hitting 4500 peak nit brightness, and a stunning PWM dimming, this is one display to experience for sure. Out of the box, the phone comes with WiFi 7 Ready.

Finally, the camera, while it may not find the prowess of the Hasselblad, which is exclusive to the 12, still features a stunning camera setup for most consumers to enjoy – a main 50MP Sony IMX890 sensor with and 112-degree FOV Sony IMX355 Ultra-wide. It does have a Macro Lens, but by now you know how we feel about it. The OnePlus 12R is running Android 14 right out of the box and expect it to get the same if not similar update cycle as the 12 or maybe the 11.

OnePlus 12R Malaysia Price

The OnePlus 12R will be priced at RM 3199 and comes in one variant only: 16GB + 256GB respectively. You get to pick between two colours: Cool Blue and Iron Gray. Unlike the OnePlus 12 which will be available starting the 3rd of February, OnePlus Malaysia has not confirmed if it will be available at the same time or a later date.
