The OnePlus 12’s QC seems to be a bit lacking


The OnePlus 12 is the company’s latest flagship smartphone and commands a pretty hefty price tag, and as such, you would expect it to have a decent build quality. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case as some OnePlus 12 owners in China are discovering.

According to several posts on Weibo, it looks like the QC on the OnePlus 12 is a bit lacking. Users are reporting gaps between the phone’s camera housing and the rest of the phone’s body, which is honestly a little unsightly once you’ve seen it. To be fair, it’s not particularly obvious but the fact that it exists does raise some eyebrows.

Also, some users are reporting that there is an excessive amount of glue used around the camera housing area. It is unclear how widespread this issue is, but it seems to have been enough for Redmi general manager Lu Weibing to comment about it, where the executive took a dig at OnePlus for having “looser” quality standards compared to Redmi.

To be fair, it is impossible for companies to produce 100% perfect phones all the time. Sometimes things do get overlooked as QC is usually done by humans. Hopefully OnePlus is aware of this and will do something to rectify the units already sold and also those that are still in the process of being made. The OnePlus 12 is expected to launch globally in January 2024 so fingers crossed that the company manages to sort this out before then!
