The details of the OnePlus 10 Pro have trickled in. And it looks like OnePlus is planning to reveal its next flagship phone in a similar fashion.
The phone maker gave us our first official look at the OnePlus 10 Pro on Monday evening (January 3). With a constant stream of leaks surrounding the new handset, most of us could probably pull the phone out of memory. We also know when the OnePlus 10 Pro is coming, at least in part of the world.
OnePlus announces that it will launch its new phone in China on Tuesday, January 11. It’s unclear when the device will arrive in other parts of the world, including the United States. Last year, the OnePlus 9 series debuted in March, so OnePlus fans outside of China could wait until the OnePlus 10 Pro hits its market.
When it does arrive, the OnePlus 10 Pro is sure to bring a sleek look to the world of Android phones. A teaser video shows two colors – black and mint green – and the rear camera array sits on a noticeably raised bump that blends into the side of the phone. This black bump particularly stands out on the green model and seems like the kind of visual flair that users will embrace or heal.
There is something even more important about this array of cameras, it has a Hasselblad tag on it. And the involvement of the Swedish lens specialist should be welcome for anyone keen to give the OnePlus 10 Pro’s cameras a try. After all, Hasselblad has partnered with OnePlus on last year’s OnePlus 9 phones, and the result has been the best performing cameras we’ve seen on a OnePlus handset.
With the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro, Hasselblad and OnePlus have focused on producing more natural color tones. It’s unclear if this will continue with the OnePlus 10 Pro or if the partnership will expand to improve other areas of this burgeoning camera phone.
OnePlus 10 Pro: what we know so far
OnePlus has yet to officially reveal the full specs for its new phone, although a OnePlus 10 Pro teaser video confirmed something we did know during this announcement – the phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. ‘is Qualcomm’s latest silicon, and it promises faster AI, an improved image signal processor, and gaming advancements along with the usual increases in overall speed and power efficiency.
Presumably, OnePlus will release additional details about the OnePlus 10 Pro as the phone’s China launch approaches next week. So far, we’ve leaked information about the OnePlus 10 Pro, which paints a pretty substantial picture of the new device.
While the OnePlus 9 phones could charge at a rate of 65W, the OnePlus 10 Pro is expected to bring 85W charging into the mix. Rumors point to a bigger battery in the new phone – 5,000mAh versus 4,500mAh in the OnePlus 9 Pro.
The OnePlus 10 Pro’s screen is expected to be 6.7 inches and, like its predecessor, it will be refreshed at 120Hz. However, a recent rumor suggests that the OnePlus 10 Pro may adopt LTPO 2.0 technology, which is expected to make the even smoother scrolling on the screen.
As for those rear cameras, it looks like they’ll sport the same specs as the OnePlus 9 Pro – a 48 MP main camera supported by a 50 MP super wide-angle lens and an 8 MP 3x telephoto lens. The monochrome lens that came with last year’s OnePlus flagship is gone, an omission we can’t say we’re broken on. Supposedly, the front camera of the OnePlus 10 Pro gets a boost to a 32MP sensor.
We’ll see if these rumors materialize as soon as OnePlus unveils more details about the OnePlus 10 Pro. And we hope that this information includes its US launch plan and price.
