On the memory side, the phone comes with two variants they are 8GB RAM 128GB internal storage, and 12GB RAM 256GB internal storage. Unfortunately, there is no dedicated slot for a microSD card so does not provide you the flexibility to expand your phone storage if needed.
Using the Open Resource Architecture, OnePlus has collaborated with MediaTek to combine additional AI features to the Dimensity 1200. Therefore, OnePlus has provided the chip a new name—Dimensity 1200-AI.
