The OnePlus 12R has a broken promise –here’s why it could matter for you

Despite only launching in the past few days, the new OnePlus 12R is now being subject to some previously unwarranted criticism, and it’s all down to OnePlus itself. 

In an announcement released on the OnePlus community page today, it has been revealed that the storage on the new OnePlus 12R is using older technology than had been originally advertised. 

In a post by OnePlus staff member Kinder L. OnePlus stated that: “Due to an error, we stated that the storage enhanced by Trinity Engine would be UFS 4.0 in some variants. I can now confirm that the storage in all variants of the OnePlus 12R is still enhanced by Trinity Engine but is actually UFS 3.1.”

The OnePlus 12R was announced globally at an event on January 23, 2024, having already been launched in China, and was revealed alongside the more premium OnePlus 12.
