Although Oppo and OnePlus have grand plans for their displays, the second company seems to be going all out with its upcoming flagship. The OnePlus 12’s screen is going to be bright. Very bright.
If the well-known leaker, and now highly reliable source, Ice Universe is to be believed, sunglasses are not a luxury with the OnePlus 12. Whereas manufacturer BOE talks about a maximum brightness of 2,600 nits, Universe talks about a much higher number.

Sunglasses for the OnePlus 12
During the announcement of the X1 display for the OnePlus 12, manufacturer BOE talked about a maximum brightness of 2600 nits. Less than we might have expected beforehand, but much less than what Ice Universe thinks it knows.
The leaker’s sources tell us that the smartphone, due early next year, will have a maximum brightness of 4000 nits. You read it right: 4000 nits.
Twitter won’t load because you didn’t give permission.
The peak brightness of OnePlus12 far exceeds 2600nit, and I expect it to reach 4000nit.

By comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra has a maximum brightness of 1750 nits, the iPhone 15 Pro Max of 2000 nits and the Google Pixel 8 Pro of 2400 nits. Indeed, the OnePlus Open has an insane brightness of 2800 nits.
So in theory, the OnePlus 12 is twice as bright as the iPhone 15 Pro Max, even though that device already almost never reaches its maximum brightness. That’s insane.
Grain of salt from a kilo pack
By the way, it is good to take this news with a grain of salt. Usually that already applies to rumors, but especially in this case, there are quite a few question marks hanging over the head.

Should the OnePlus 12 actually have a display with a maximum brightness of 4,000 nits, I, for one, don’t really understand why BOE didn’t show it off last week.
If one does manage to create a display with such capabilities, why would one choose to flaunt it with a maximum brightness of 2600 nits? I just find that a very extraordinary story.
