- OnePlus 12 alert slider location will be different from its predecessors.

- OnePlus 12 will sport a 4th-gen Hasselblad Camera for Mobile.
OnePlus 12 launch is just around the block and the company has been teasing different features and aspects of the new device. We now have the official marketing images of the device giving us a real look at it. You can see its different colours and design characteristics. We also learn that OnePlus has shifted the location of the alert slider and has shared the reason for the same.
OnePlus 12 alert slider is on the left side, but why?
The company says that based on its internal testing, it has been found that the gaming antennas must be ideally present between the forefingers of the user while the device is held in landscape mode. At present, the alert slider is present on this spot and therefore, it decided to move the slider to the other side.
So, the alert slider is situated on the left side of the OnePlus 12 to facilitate better gaming antennas. These are said to be ultra-compact full-band antenna technology with signal improved by 3dB and the game latency reduced by 15%.
OnePlus 12 colours and design
As per the official Weibo postings, the OnePlus 12 will be available in green, white, and black colour options. The green in particular is being called “Flowy Emerald” (machine-translated). It looks inspired by nature.
Speaking of nature, we have also come across a wooden back of the OnePlus 12 in one of the recent leaks. However, it is not officially corroborated yet.
The back is glass and there is a giant camera island and a relatively smaller brand logo. The camera island consists of a “4th-gen Hasselblad Camera for Mobile” and a 3x periscope zoom lens.
The front is flatter compared to the slightly curved back. Up front, there is a central punch-hole cutout and narrow bezels.
