Yet another 10 series OnePlus

The OnePlus 10R is furthering OnePlus’ flagship line for this year by offering a budget phone to make the series more popular amongst the Indian audience and giving people an affordable option should the recently launched OnePlus 10 Pro fall out of their budget.

Performance

The OnePlus 10R gets the MediaTek Dimensity 8100 SoC based on a 5nm process and eight cores as high as 2.85GHz. There are two RAM options coming in at 8GB and 12GB. In terms of storage, there are two options coming in 128GB and 256GB. The phone runs ColourOS 12 out of the box, based on Android 12. 

Cameras

The rear gets a triple camera setup on the 10R coming win with a 50MP primary shooter, an 8MP ultra-wide and a 2MP macro camera. On the other hand, the front has a centrally-placed 16MP hole-punch camera. 

Display

The OnePlus 10R gets a 6.7-inch AMOLED display running at 120Hz and supports HDR10+. The resolution is expected to be 1080 x 2412, and there’s Corning Gorilla Glass 5 to protect against accidental drops and scratches.

Battery and Charging

The India version of the 10R gets a 4500mAh battery which supports 150W fast charging. There’s a regular version with a 5000mAh battery but slower 80W charging. OnePlus claims that the 150W variant will reach 50% charging in about five minutes which is extremely fast for a phone in this price range. 

Pricing and availability

While the exact pricing and availability haven’t been announced yet, the OnePlus 10R 5G is expected to start around ₹50,000 for the base variant.

There are two RAM options coming in at 6GB and 8GB. Storage also comes in two options — 128GB and 256GB.
