In recent years, the best Android phones have been melting pots of top tech. A combination of quality hardware, software and AI integration have given us devices which look wholly different to those from just a few years ago.
One of the most prominent AI-powered devices is the Google Pixel range. Devices like the Google Pixel 8 Pro have a whole host of features baked in which are led by AI and designed to make life easier for users.
Now, another top handset is joining the fray. The latest software update for the OnePlus 11 and OnePlus 12 handsets has added a host of AI features, likely in a bid to rival other handsets like the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra more closely.
The update was spotted by notorious tech insider, Mishaal Rahman, who enjoys a handsome reputation for supplying tech leaks. The update was posted on his Twitter page.
According to the tweet, the brand are bringing a handful of different features to the market. Most notably, that includes a feature called AIGC Remover. That sounds a little like the Magic Eraser on Pixel phones, allowing users to remove objects in the image.
Elsewhere, an AI Summariser tool should help to generate call summaries. That extracts key information from call logs, to offer users a snappier way to gain information.
That same technology can also be used to summarise articles. Users can gain a summary with just one tap, with the AI extracting key information to craft a shorter read.
It's a significant upgrade. The OnePlus 12 was already one of the hottest devices on the market for me, offering great usability and a top notch camera. Adding in a host of AI-based tech to help with daily use is only going to make it even better.
Will it be enough to make it the best phone of 2024? Only time will tell...
