OnePlus 10 Pro launch date has been officially teased by OnePlus. The Chinese brand will launch its flagship device first in China. OnePlus 10 Pro will be unveiled on 4th January 2022. The global launch date is not yet confirmed. However, we can expect it to launch sometime around March 2022. But, an interesting thing to note is that no vanilla model is teased as of now. Only the Pro model will arrive next week in China.
No Vanilla OnePlus 10?
An interesting thing to note is that no vanilla model is teased as of now. Only the Pro model will arrive next week in China. Does it mean that we won’t get a non-pro model? I don’t think that will be the case. Because, if there was no non-pro model, they wouldn’t have named this one the 10 Pro. So, fans can keep their hopes up for a much affordable flagship from OnePlus.
Design & Expected Specifications
The design and specifications of the OnePlus 10 Pro have already been leaked. Steve Hemmerstoffer aka OnLeaks has revealed the design and probable specifications of the 10 Pro. OnePlus takes inspiration from the contour cut camera module of S21 Ultra. The camera bump on the OnePlus 10 Pro melts into the frame. Moreover, the leaked render shows a vertical Hasselblad branding towards the melting side of the camera bump. The leaked design also shows 3 sensors and a flash on the bottom right corner.
The new flagship OnePlus 10 Pro is said to house a circa 6.7-inch curved display with a single-punch hole selfie camera. Further reports suggest that the 10-series phone will be roughly 163.0 x 73.8 x 8.5mm in dimensions. The triple rear camera will also include three sensors; 48MP main, 50MP ultra-wide, and 8MP telephoto. The display will have a 120Hz fast and smooth refresh rate in a 20:9 aspect ratio. The OnePlus 10 Pro is said to have a 5000 mAh battery which will charge from zero to full in twenty minutes due to 80W blazing fast charging speed. It will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 8Gen1.
What’s Next For OnePlus
The new OnePlus flagship apart from a new design will also debut the replacement of our beloved Oxygen OS. OnePlus officially announced that a new Unified OS will be run on the OnePlus 10 series. Exciting times are ahead for us as this Unified OS could be a home run for OnePlus and OPPO. But for the hardcore OnePlus fans, if this Unified OS shifts away from the identity of OnePlus smartphones, it might be the year to move on
