The OnePlus 12R turned out to be the flagship killer smartphone in our review by Harish Jonnalagadda. Its great design, display, and 50MP camera, accompanied by outstanding performance, attributed to make it a great value phone. 

However, the device had a setback as it was advertised as a UFS 4.0 storage device for the 256GB variant, even though it doesn't support the newer storage type. OnePlus has acknowledged the issue and has also offered a refund to those who purchased the device, hoping for a faster storage interface. For the uninitiated, the device was launched at $499 and $599 (for larger storage) in the U.S.
