On the Chinese social network Weibo, OnePlus co-founder and CEO Pete Lau teased the flagship killer OnePlus 10 series. “See you in January,” Lau wrote after using the hashtag “OnePlus 10 Pro.” Fans are ecstatic, as one could assume.
It’s worth noting that Lau just referenced the forthcoming OnePlus Pro model. According to rumors, the OnePlus 10 series would most likely only have one product, according to a well-known informant. OnePlus typically releases two models at a time—a standard and a Pro—followed by a third “T” model oriented toward power users. OnePlus, on the other hand, has decided to discontinue the 9T this year.
It’s also worth noting that OnePlus is launching a new flagship device a little early. Previously, the company released its new items in March/April, shortly after Samsung ended its Galaxy showcase.
The OnePlus 10 Pro will be the first OnePlus device to be released under the Oppo banner. OnePlus has been linked to parent firm Oppo since its inception, but the business said this year that it was working on “deeper integration” with the corporation.
While this is good news for OnePlus’s company because one of China’s largest smartphone makers is helping foot the cost, it has caused some concern among Android supporters, particularly with regards to expected modifications to the OnePlus Oxygen OS interface when it merges with Oppo’s ColorOS. I also questioned if OnePlus’s reign as the “enthusiast’s” Android device, which had previously been held by Google’s Nexus, was coming to an end.
Last but not least, whether the OnePlus 10 Pro can outperform Google’s refined Pixel 6 Pro in terms of photography capability. The rumored specifications offer us reason to be thrilled.
Unofficial renders of the next OnePlus have surfaced, revealing a stove-top camera array with three lenses and a flash, as well as the return of the Hasselblad partnership introduced with the OnePlus 9. The OnePlus 10 Pro has a 6.7-inch display with a QHD+ resolution and a refresh rate of 120Hz. It could enable 80W rapid charging and, according to the company’s CEO, will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor.
The OnePlus 10 Pro could make its debut internationally first, before going on sale in the United States in early spring.
