OnePlus has clarified today that their recently launched OnePlus 12R Storage version is UFS 3.1 and not UFS 4.0 as was communicated at the launch event. OnePlus has admitted this mistake and Kinder Liu, OnePlus President and COO, has clarified that “during the launch of the OnePlus 12R, we stated that the storage enhanced by Trinity Engine would be UFS 4.0 in some variants. I can now confirm that the storage in all variants of the OnePlus 12R is still enhanced by Trinity Engine but is actually UFS 3.1.
He has further stated that UFS 3.1 storage is the same fast storage you’ll find in phones like the OnePlus 11 Series, so your phone will still perform really well when reading and writing to memory. The OnePlus 12R also still features all the new Trinity Engine features we announced at launch, like launching apps faster than ever and keeping applications locked open for up to 72 hours, and was fully tested using UFS 3.1 storage. I can also confirm that the OnePlus 12R was fully certified by TUV SUD using UFS 3.1 memory, and, as a result, it is still certified to remain fluent for 48 months. Your OnePlus 12R will stay fast and smooth long into the future”.
Both the storage options of 128GB and 256GB of OnePlus 12R have UFS 3.1 storage.
