After months of leaks and rumours about the phone, the OnePlus 10 Pro finally made its official debut in China.
The new device is the successor to the OnePlus 9 series and comes with improved specifications, including the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, 80 W fast charging and more, according to GSM Arena.
The 10 Pro features a 6.7 LTPO 2.0 AMOLED screen of 1440 p resolution. The panel supports an adaptive refresh rate from 1 Hz to 120 Hz and the second-generation LTPO panel allows it to decrease the frame rate in even more cases, boosting battery savings.
The chipset is Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. It will be coupled with 8 GB or 12 GB LPDDR 5 RAM and 128 GB or 256 GB UFS 3.1 storage.
The OnePlus 10 Pro camera was developed together with Hasselblad. The main sensor is the 48 MP Sony IMX 89 with 1.12 mm pixels, 1 1.43 size and f 1.8 lens in front of it. The 50 MP Samsung JN 1 sits behind the 150 degree lens of the ultrawide shooter.
The third camera is an 8 MP telephoto unit with 3.3 x optical zoom. The selfie camera has a 32 MP Sony IMX 615 sensor behind it and an f 2.4 lens.
The Hasselblad partnership brings in Natural Color Optimisation 2.0, which promises the colors will be closer to real life. There is also Pro Mode 2.0 RAW shooting mode.
The OnePlus 10 Pro comes with ColorOS 12.1, based on Android 12 in China, but we expect its global version to still be running OxygenOS.
There is a feature called Hyperboost. It allows you to push the hardware to the limit for gaming purposes, and there are some tools for overclocking the CPU, which simply means locking all eight cores at their maximum frequency.
To prevent overheating issues, OnePlus has improved the cooling system, which is now 55 per cent the size of an A 4 paper sheet. Cooling will also come in handy for charging as the 5,000 mAh battery comes with 80 W fast wired charging - the fastest for the brand and nearly 25 per cent increase from the standard in the predecessor. Wireless charging remains impressively fast at 50 W, even though not new.
The OnePlus 10 Pro is coming in China first with two color options - Black and Green. Like some classic OnePlus phones, the panels have a sandstone finish. They are not your regular glass backs, for sure.
The 10 Pro is priced at about 54,521 for the 8 128 GB variant, about 57,997 for the 8 256 GB and nearly 61,478 for the 12 255 GB variant.
The first flash sale is scheduled for January 13 and there are only two days for pre-orders.
