OnePlus 10 and OnePlus 10 Pro: all info and specs 2022

The company has come a long way from its "Never Settle" days. In recent years, the company that competed for one-third of the price of premium flagship smartphones has completely changed its strategy. Apple and Samsung have almost equal specs, and their phones are almost as expensive. In the imaging department, the OnePlus 9 series had modest success, although it was unable to live up to the hype surrounding Hasselblad cameras. OnePlus will have some significant changes planned for its OnePlus 10 series in 2022, as it is in the process of being Oppo-field, while its hardware will only see minor updates. The OnePlus 10 series is all we know so far.

OnePlus 10 Pro's design is Galaxy S21-Esque

With a hump blending into the chassis and a design reminiscent of the Galaxy S21 series, the OnePlus 10 Pro has design cues from Samsung. In November last year renders leaked showing the phone's design for the first time. After this, dummy photos of the phone appeared online showing how it would look in person. Early January will see the 10 Pro launch in China, and OnePlus confirmed the design.
In the marketing materials for the OnePlus 10 Pro, Samsung's Galaxy 2021 flagship phone is compared to the OnePlus 10 Pro. The front of the phone looks largely similar to that of the OnePlus 9 Pro, with a punch-hole camera situated on the left side. Besides the forest green color available in China, there will also be a forest green color available internationally. The OnePlus 10 Pro Extreme Edition in Panda White is also similar to the Panda Pixel 2 XL.
There is a possibility that the durability of the OnePlus 10 Pro can be a concern. This indicates it is less durable than previous OnePlus phones, as JerryRigEverything's test resulted in the phone snapping in half. A flagship phone in 2022 will also not be like this.

OnePlus 10 Pro specs

There's no mystery surrounding the OnePlus 10 Pro's specs since it's already official in China. The device sports a 6.7-inch OLED display with a resolution of 1440p, and a refresh rate of 1Hz to 120Hz. Powered by a 5,000mAh battery, the device features up to 12GB RAM and 256GB UFS 3.1 storage. The OnePlus 9 Pro is equipped with a 65W wired charger, but the OnePlus 10 has an 80W one. Its charging technology was known as Warp Charge before, but it has been rebranded as SuperVOOC, as it is with Oppo.

This phone is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, which brings significant AI and ML improvements, along with a redesigned GPU for better gaming performance.

There are three rear cameras on the OnePlus 10 Pro, including a 48MP f/1.8 primary sensor and an 8MP f/2.4 3.3x telephoto sensor. OnePlus describes this as the "second-generation Hasselblad Camera for Mobile." It has an extremely wide field of view of 150 degrees - much wider than the 110 degrees offered by the 9 Pro. Smartphone photographers will be able to capture an entirely new perspective, though severe distortion may result due to the wide field of view. The OnePlus camera app also offers a 110-degree traditional mode to minimize the possibility.

It is expected that Qualcomm will be able to extract better quality images from camera sensors using the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chips. OnePlus 10 Pro also receives a much-needed bump in resolution to 32MP, which should boost its selfie capabilities.

Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 1

The company has shared OnePlus camera samples from the 10 Pro, showing how it takes photos in 10-bit color by default. There are also improved Hasselblad mode settings for capturing 12-bit RAW images, Movie mode with manual control of the frame rate, ISO, etc. while recording videos, and support for LOG format. Hasselblad's improvements to the OnePlus 9 series were treated as a marketing gimmick and did not add any meaningful improvements to the user experience. So, it will be interesting to see if the OnePlus 10 Pro does anything different to change that or not.

OxygenOS powered by ColorOS

In July, OnePlus announced that ColorOS would be merged with OxygenOS. It provided additional details about this merger following its announcement, including elaborating on a new unified OS for both companies' devices. The OnePlus 10 series was intended to be the platform for launching the new OS, as it promised a fast and smooth experience of OxygenOS and a stable and rich feature set of ColorOS. However, according to reports, its development may not be complete in time for the launch of the OnePlus 10 Pro.
OnePlus, however, later dropped plans to merge OxygenOS and ColorOS. It was decided to use unified code for both operating systems because this will allow for "quicker updates and greater build quality." This decision was made following feedback from its community and realizing that each skin has its own fan base. Fans of OnePlus and OxygenOS who were not too satisfied with the original announcement can breathe a sigh of relief.

The company's updates haven't been as smooth as they should be. After completely botching the OxygenOS 12 update for the OnePlus 9 series and the initial build was so buggy that OxygenOS stopped rolling out to the devices. The company took its time in resolving all the issues, even though it was relatively quick to push a revised build. OnePlus will now be able to dedicate more time to the release of stable updates for its devices after it has developed a clear strategy for the foreseeable future.

How about the OnePlus 10?

There will usually be a non-pro version of the OnePlus' flagship phone with a smaller screen and a lower price. The OnePlus 10 has not been leaked yet, and with the international launch of the lineup perhaps a couple of months away, leaks are expected to start soon. It is likely that this phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU. However, the triple-camera setup will remain similar to that of its predecessor. Charge speeds should remain the same, as 80W charging will only be available on the Pro model.
Oscar is rumored to be the codename for the phone and may debut by late spring. We can speculate that the OnePlus 10 Pro will be launched first this time, with the non-Pro following a few weeks later.

China is available now; international markets are scheduled to open by the end of March

The launch timeframe of OnePlus devices has been moving up over the past few years. OnePlus launched the OnePlus 10 Pro in China in the first week of January in order to capitalize on the upcoming OnePlus 9 'T' refresh in the second half of 2021. However, OnePlus launched the OnePlus 10 Pro a few weeks too early. OnePlus confirmed that the device will be available in India, Europe, and North America before the end of March, following multiple rumors of an early launch.

The phone will be OnePlus's first flagship phone to launch early in the year. It was not a typical move for the company, but it makes sense if one takes into account its Oppo-fiction. The Oppo flagship phones are usually launched in China first and then sold in global markets in the following weeks and months. OnePlus is still following the same launch strategy it used for the OnePlus 10 series, now owned by Oppo.
