Following the OnePlus 10 Pro’s release date confirmation, Pete Lau has now shared a glimpse of how the upcoming OnePlus 10 Pro 5G will look, essentially confirming the leaked designs from last month.
In the announcement, Lau talks about OnePlus’ design philosophy and how the experimentation with colour, material, and finish from the OnePlus 9 series has now inspired the new colours and design language of the upcoming OnePlus 10 Pro.
The most visible difference in the new phone’s design compared to older OnePlus models is the shape and placement of the camera module. It houses three cameras, expected to be similar to their previous flagship, the OnePlus 9 Pro considering OnePlus’ continued partnership with Hasselblad.
New phone, new design
The finalised renders that Lau shared look quite similar to the ones leaked by @OnLeaks, with the exception of the flash. It seems like the upcoming 10 Pro will have a ring flash in the bottom right of the camera module, with the other quadrants taken up by cameras.
The phone will launch in three different colours: Volcanic Black and Emerald Forest. This will also be the first OnePlus phone to run on the new combined OS merging OnePlus’ OxygenOS and Oppo’s ColorOS.
It’s rumoured to run on the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor and come with 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and the choice between 128 or 256GB storage which is most likely going to be UFS3.1.
The new device is rumoured to be powered by a 5000 mAh battery with 80W fast charging. Lau also confirmed in his Weibo post that the phone would, in fact, use an LTPO screen which lets devices change their refresh rate depending upon screen activity. With the phone’s rumoured 6.7-inch QHD+ AMOLED display going as high as 120Hz, this is sure to help the battery stretch out a few hours longer.
Last but not least, the phone is expected to come with a 48MP main, 50MP ultrawide and an 8MP 3x telephoto lens, all developed in partnership with Hasselblad. The front gets a 32MP hole-punch selfie camera positioned in the top-left.
