OnePlus 12 to Get Wireless Charging Again
The imminent launch of the OnePlus 12 is generating anticipation, with OnePlus adhering to its customary practice of revealing specifications and details prior to the official unveiling. Li JieLouis from OnePlus confirmed on Weibo that the OnePlus 12 is scheduled for release in China on December 5, shedding light on several key features of the upcoming flagship.
A predictable yet noteworthy inclusion in the specs is the use of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. This powerful processor aligns with the high-performance standards associated with OnePlus devices. Another intriguing detail mentioned is the introduction of a “2K Oriental Screen,” likely referring to the display showcased by OnePlus in October. During this preview, an IR blaster was highlighted, a feature reiterated by JieLouis. Additionally, a brief reference to “rain touch” suggests the incorporation of technology showcased by OnePlus that enhances touchscreen functionality when wet.
The camera setup on the OnePlus 12 is anticipated to feature a Sony Lytia LYT-808 sensor. Earlier teasers provided insights into the camera’s capabilities, showcasing the periscope zoom lens. Drawing parallels with the OnePlus Open, which also utilizes a Sony Lytia sensor, raises expectations for impressive camera performance.
However, the standout revelation is the return of wireless charging on the OnePlus 12. While OnePlus had previously offered wireless charging, it was notably absent in the OnePlus 11 and OnePlus Open without clear justification. The absence left enthusiasts speculating on the feature’s future in OnePlus devices. The specifics of the wireless charging capabilities, such as potential improvements or adherence to previous 50W charging standards, remain undisclosed. Nevertheless, the mere confirmation of its reintroduction has been met with enthusiasm.
Notably, the OnePlus 12’s debut is set for December 5 in China, with global markets expected to receive the device in January, as per reports. The return of wireless charging adds an extra layer of anticipation for OnePlus enthusiasts, and the device’s overall features indicate a promising addition to the OnePlus flagship lineup. With certification underway, there’s speculation that OnePlus might embrace Qi2, potentially making it among the pioneers in adopting this wireless charging standard. As the launch date approaches, the OnePlus 12 holds the promise of delivering an enhanced user experience with its powerful internals and innovative features.
Sunbird Temporarily Closes Android iMessage App Citing ‘Security Concerns’
Sunbird, the app designed to bring iMessage to Android users, has temporarily halted its service due to “security concerns,” as initially reported by 9to5Google. In a communication to its users, Sunbird announced the decision to “pause Sunbird usage for now” while it investigates reports suggesting that its messages lack true end-to-end encryption.
Launched in 2022 with the aim of settling the blue versus green bubble debate, Sunbird has been accessible only to those who join its waitlist, emphasizing various privacy features such as end-to-end encryption, no message data collection, and an absence of ads. Last week, Sunbird joined forces with Nothing, the phone brand owned by OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, for the release of Nothing Chats. The Sunbird-powered messaging service was intended to enable owners of the Phone 2 to send texts via iMessage. However, it was swiftly removed from the Google Play Store just one day after its launch.
While Nothing initially cited the need to address “several bugs” in the app, its removal coincided with a post from Texts.blog, revealing potential lapses in end-to-end encryption for messages sent via Sunbird. Android developer Dylan Roussel reached similar conclusions and also discovered that Sunbird stores numerous media files on the cloud service Firebase. This implies that Sunbird’s assertion of not storing data on its servers is only partially accurate, as the company seems to be externally dispatching the information.
Sunbird has yet to provide a statement regarding the app’s closure, but its message to users states, “We will update you when we are ready to proceed.” The app is no longer featured on the Google Play Store, despite being downloadable just last month, as seen in an archived version of the page.

Just like a masterpiece seamlessly blends precision and creativity, our Find N3 and Find N3 Flip embody flawless design, vibrant displays, and unmatched camera capabilities. Despite their foldable nature, we’ve meticulously engineered these devices so our users never have to compromise on any essential aspect. More than just smartphones, they serve as gateways to limitless creativity, productivity, and self-expression.”
OPPO Find N3
The Find N3 showcases a premium design characterized by its slim and lightweight demeanour. When unfolded, it measures 5.8mm in thickness, and when closed, a sleek 11.7mm. Weighing just 239g in vegan leather, it’s lighter than some traditional bar flagship phones. Its user-friendly design, featuring flat sides and gently curved corners, provides a natural and comfortable grip for effortless use. The device is available in two exquisite colours: Sunlit Gold, featuring a glass back, and Classic Black, adorned with a vegan leather back.
The Find N3 stands out as the first foldable with a professional-grade imaging system, boasting the sharpest and brightest screens among foldable devices. Its advanced cameras, innovative stacked pixel technology, and Hasselblad tuning seamlessly combine with ColorOS 13.2’s next-generation capabilities, enabling PC-level productivity in the palm of users’ hands.

The 48MP ultra-wide camera on the Find N3 stands out for its power and versatility. Its sensor size is over 100% larger than that of other flagship foldables, allowing users to capture dynamic macro shots, expansive landscapes, and group shots with exceptional clarity. For zooming capabilities, the Find N3’s ultra-thin periscope telephoto camera combines a 64MP resolution with a fast f/2.6 aperture.

For a brilliant viewing experience, whether open or closed, the Find N3’s two large, user-friendly screens offer unparalleled clarity and brightness among foldable devices. The inner and outside display support class-leading peak brightness of 2800 nits, ensuring exceptional visibility even in bright lighting conditions. Building on the legacy of Find N and Find N2’s Golden Ratio displays, the Find N3’s screens are taller, resulting in a 6.3” outer screen, and a 7.8” unfolded screen. When closed, the Find N3 functions as a traditional smartphone, and when open, it becomes an immersive tablet.
Both Find N3 series’ screens display over 425 pixels per inch, ensuring flagship-level clarity. Additionally, the 1440Hz PWM dimming guarantees comfortable usage even during long periods. The LTPO technology enables a seamless 1-120Hz dynamic refresh rate, facilitating smooth scrolling and gameplay. Furthermore, adding a self-healing layer minimizes scuffs, resulting in an almost crease-free unfolded screen for an uninterrupted viewing experience.
OPPO’s third-generation Flexion Hinge lies at the core of the Find N3’s slim, lightweight profile. This hinge, despite being smaller than its predecessor, is more durable. This device not only boasts IPX4 splash resistance but is also the first phone to be independently tested to withstand 1,000,000 folds by TÜV Rheinland. Furthermore, the Find N3 has been tested through 100,000 folds in scorching 50ºC heat as well as freezing -20ºC conditions, ensuring its durability and reliability in extreme weather conditions.
The Find N3, which runs on Android 13 with ColorOS 13.2, will also receive a total of four years of software updates and five years of security updates. The Global TaskBar, featuring the App Library and File Pocket, ensures quick access to recent files and apps. With OPPO’s innovative Boundless View supporting three apps, users can effortlessly work across three tall apps, with two displayed side-by-side and a third app accessible off-screen. A simple tap brings the off-screen app into view.
The 15” Boundless View mode displays all three apps in a 7.8” tablet-like view, allowing concentrated work on one app while still multitasking smoothly between all three.
Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform, the Find N3 boasts a 35% improvement in performance and a 40% boost in overall efficiency compared to previous generation chipsets. With 512GB UFS 4.0 storage and 16GB LPDDR5X RAM, this device guarantees a true flagship gaming and multitasking experience. Thanks to OPPO’s Dynamic Computing Engine, the Find N3 can also handle over 40 apps running simultaneously in the background.
Equipped with a large 4805mAh battery, the Find N3 ensures reliable day-long power. Moreover, its 67W SUPERVOOC™ fast charging technology results in 80% charge in 30 minutes, and 100% in just 42 minutes.
Find N3 Flip
The Find N3 Flip introduces groundbreaking features, setting new standards in its category. It proudly stands as the first flagship triple-camera flip phone, boasting a remarkable 50MP wide, 48MP ultra-wide, and 32MP 2x zoom equivalent telephoto camera system. This innovation includes the pioneering integration of a telephoto lens, a noteworthy first for flip phones.
Beyond its impressive camera capabilities, the device’s vertical cover screen has been upgraded to support third-party apps, enhancing its versatility and user experience. OPPO’s innovative Flexion Hinge for Flip technology enables a shallow screen crease and a zero-gap hinge, providing a seamless and durable design.
Furthermore, the Find N3 Flip is powered by the flagship MediaTek Dimensity 9200, guaranteeing exceptional speed and reliability. It features the largest and thickest graphite layer of any flip phone, ensuring efficient heat dissipation to maintain optimal performance. With its substantial 4300mAh battery capacity and cutting-edge 44W SUPERVOOC fast charging technology, the phone offers comfortable day-long usage and ensures quick and convenient recharges.
Coupled with the refined ColorOS 13.2, the Find N3 Flip combines premium design, flagship performance, and user-friendly software, setting a new standard for flip phones in the market.
