100
OnePlus x Genshin Impact

The collaboration between Genshin Impact and OnePlus could prompt instant purchases from fans! It’s an irresistible offer for hardcore players dedicating countless hours to the game. However, is the OnePlus 12R Genshin Impact Edition truly worth its $649.99 price tag (INR 49,999)? In this in-depth review I’ll go through all the details highlighting design, performance, game optimisations, and of course, the merchandise that comes with the OnePlus 12R Genshin Impact edition.

As the gaming industry expands, mobile games now require increasingly powerful hardware. Alongside Apple devices, OnePlus has established itself as an excellent option for gamers. Collaborations like this, where you receive an exclusive package of Keqing goodies alongside your new phone purchase, are truly a delight!

What is special in OnePlus 12R Genshin Impact Edition

I have been using this phone for nearly two weeks now, and honestly, the Genshin Impact 12R Genshin Impact edition phone feels like an exclusive treat. Every component of this package embodies meticulously crafted brilliance tailored for the fans.

The package includes:

  • OnePlus 12R Genshin Impact Edition Mobile Phone
  • Genshin Impact Keqing-Themed “Glinted Lightning” 100W SUPERVOOC Power Adapter
  • Genshin Impact Keqing-Themed “Glinted Lightning” Custom Fast-Charging Cable
  • Genshin Impact Keqing-Themed Custom “Lightning Stiletto” SIM Ejector
  • Genshin Impact Keqing-Themed Custom Phone Case
  • Genshin Impact Keqing-Themed Custom Chibi Acrylic Phone Stand
  • Genshin Impact Keqing-Themed Custom Chibi Stickers
  • Genshin Impact Keqing-Themed “Exceed the Speed of Lightning” Poster
  • Genshin Impact Keqing-Themed Custom Collectible Chibi Commemorative
  • Metal Badges x8 (Whole Set)
  • Genshin Impact Keqing-Themed Custom Tinplate Shiny Character Badge
  • Genshin Impact Keqing-Themed Custom Acrylic Stand Ornament
  • A Letter to the Traveler

The package itself looks like a gift from the world of Teyvat. And then you open it and find “A Letter to the Traveler”, which shows HoYoverse‘s attention to detail. While the letter could have been a little more personalised (this is a special edition!), it is still a lovable piece you’d want to keep safe forever!

The box itself turns into a nice place where you can keep all the merchandise on a table or somewhere that you use on a daily basis. However, I would not do that considering how special the phone and the components that come with it.

Not only that, the device has custom Keqing-themed ring tones, alarm tones, charging animation, and alerts to spice up the Genshin Impact experience on mobile device. If you are a big Keqing fan like me, having this phone definitely feels like having a real-life Keqing waifu.

The device is very powerful and capable

OnePlus 12R Genshin Impact Edition mobile phone looks and feels premium. If you are habituated to using a slim phone, this one may look a little bold to you but this should not be a big deal looking at its next-level performance. In comparison to my primary device Motorola Edge 30 Fusion, I found it a little bold but hey, with a little boldness comes great power, at least in this case for me.

The manufacturers are terming the phone’s colour as ‘Electro-violet’, inspired by the Keqing character of Genshin Impact. The design on the phone’s back looks like a perfect blend of modern hardware and the design principles taken from the world of Teyvat.

In terms of display, OnePlus 12R Genshin Impact Edition features a 6.8-inch 1264×2780 LTPO4 AMOLED screen. The high refresh rate of up to 120Hz provides a fluid experience! It adds a nice touch to the overall user experience. The device is decently bright, 4500 nits of peak HDR brightness with Dolby Vision support. I have used this phone in sunlight, and I have no complaints.

The phone comes with power-packed Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor backed by Adreno 740 GPU. The operating system is Oxygen OS 14 based on Android 14. This is not stock Android, but a very close experience to that. The device packs 16 GB of RAM and a massive 256 GB of storage to fulfill all the gaming needs!

Now talking about the camera, it does fairly well. I would not say, it is the best, but holds up well. In terms of comparison with the latest 2024 flagship models, the device lacks in this part. With its 50-megapixel Sony IMX890 sensor, it is the same as last year’s OnePlus 11 flagship. Here’s a photo for you to look at that was taken in sunlight.

The battery is 5500 mAh with 100W SUPERVOOC fast charging. On light usage, the battery stood up to two days on a single charge! For the performance geeks, the phone scored 1073 on single-core and 4065 on multi-core Geekbench 6 CPU benchmark.

Now lets talk about gaming on OnePlus 12R Genshin Impact mobile phone

As someone who loves playing Genshin Impact, I was pleasantly surprised by how well the OnePlus 12R Genshin Impact Edition handled gaming during my two weeks of use. Whether I was diving into extensive gaming sessions or just playing casually, the phone performed admirably.

What impressed me the most was its ability to stay cool even after playing demanding games like Genshin Impact, Honkai: Star Rail, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, and Honor of Kings for 3-4 hours straight. I never experienced any heating issues, which made my gaming experience smooth and enjoyable.

Moreover, the battery life of the OnePlus 12R Genshin Impact Edition was excellent during gaming sessions. On a full charge, I could easily play for about 4 hours, even while connected to a voice chat. This meant I could dive into the world of Genshin Impact without constantly worrying about battery drain.

The device claims that it loads Genshin Impact in less than 15 seconds and I can confirm that it is actually true. I have tried the HyperRendering test and noticed a significant upgrade in the gameplay experience for Genshin Impact. It is no surprise that the device is customised for having the best Genshin Impact experience and it delivers that without any setback.

Being a huge fan of tackling the Spiral Abyss every reset for those precious Primogems, I find myself running through all the floors in one go, from Floor 9 to 12. The OnePlus 12R Genshin Impact Edition has proven to be an excellent companion during these intense runs. Despite Spiral Abyss consistently being one of the game’s most challenging endgame activities, with new bosses and mechanics regularly added, I didn’t encounter any performance issues while playing.

One of my favorite characters, Kazuha, stands out not only for his abilities but also for his visually stunning skill effects. However, his skills can be quite demanding on the FPS. With the OnePlus 12R Genshin Impact Edition, I was amazed at how smoothly my Spiral Abyss runs went, even with Kazuha’s effects pushing the limits. This phone truly delivered a seamless gaming experience, allowing me to focus on conquering the Abyss without any distractions.

Genshin Impact in future collaborations

This collaboration with Keqing-themed items brought back a flood of memories from my journey in Genshin Impact. I vividly recall the excitement when Keqing’s first skin was leaked and later released, and I couldn’t resist buying it myself due to my admiration for her character and playstyle. It’s amazing to see how far the game has come, especially in terms of cosmetics and skin effects, which have consistently improved in quality over time.

Reflecting on past collaborations like the Halloween-themed Witch skin for Klee or the mesmerizing Red Dead of the Night skin for Diluc, which happens to be my personal favorite with its stunning skill effects and beautiful outfit transformation, I can’t help but imagine future collaborations. Considering the game now offers a variety of personal skins, I wouldn’t be surprised if we see more limited-edition collaborations in the future.
