In letter : The OnePlus 10 Pro turned things upside down for the company in 2022. Unlike the regular and Pro versions of its flagship which launch a few months after each new year, OnePlus has been ahead this time around with only the 10 Pro model. which is now available. on pre-order in China, sales start tomorrow.
On the outside, the OnePlus 10 Pro’s heavily revised camera module appears to be the only major design difference from its predecessor. This is OnePlus’ second attempt to excite mobile photographers with a Hasselblad partnership that has now ditched the 9 Pro’s monochrome sensor, while the remaining trio of 48MP wide, 50MP ultrawide and 8MP telephoto lenses have been carried over, alongside Improvements like better RAW support and updated Hasselblad software.
Selfie shooters, on the other hand, can expect a 32MP sensor, which doubles the image resolution compared to the 9 Pro’s 16MP unit. The OP 10 Pro’s 6.7-inch AMOLED display, QHD resolution and 120Hz refresh are also the same as last year’s flagship, however, this new model uses second-tier LTPO technology. generation that would be faster to switch the refresh rate between static and dynamic content for better battery life, and can even drop down to 1Hz for increased efficiency.
The OP 10 Pro joins the first generation of Android flagships to use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, following the recent launch of the Xiaomi 12 series and the foldable Honor Magic V. Qualcomm’s premium silicon is paired with 8GB / 128GB of memory and storage in the base model and goes up to 12GB / 256GB, just like the OP 9 Pro.
In terms of software, OnePlus’ OxygenOS has now been replaced by Oppo’s ColorOS in addition to Android 12.1, the result of the two companies merging last year. OnePlus once had a great reputation in the Android community for its smart and fast software, but the company recently dropped the ball with buggy OS updates it had to roll back, along with design changes. uninspired in his custom Android skin.
It remains to be seen how well OnePlus’ “opposition” to the 10 Pro and future models matches up with the flagship killer’s fan base. What they can probably expect from the OP 10 Pro, however, is better battery life and recharge times. OnePlus gave this model a 500mAh bump for a 5,000mAh unit. Pair that with 80W fast charging, a more efficient SoC and display technology, and the OP 10 Pro could end up with promising battery life that lasts for days and is recovered in minutes.
For now, the OP 10 Pro is only available for Pre-order in China, with prices set at ~ $ 738 for the 8GB / 128GB model, ~ $ 785 for the mid-size 8GB / 256GB variant, and ~ $ 832 for the 12GB / 256GB version. It will hit the market tomorrow in two finishes: Volcanic Black and Emerald Forest.
