Official product news for the upcoming OnePlus 10 Pro has started to spread. For now, we have an incomplete preview with a few images and specs, while things like price, release date, and the finer details will have to wait until later.

First of all: the specifications. OnePlus 10 Pro officially has the all-new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. It is Qualcomm’s new flagship SoC for 2022, and it includes a single ARM Cortex X2 core, three medium Cortex A710 processors, and four small Cortex A510 processors, all built on a 4nm process. OnePlus doesn’t say how much RAM and storage the 10 Pro has, but the 9 Pro comes with 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage. The company confirmed the screen to be 120Hz but didn’t give a size, although rumors say it’s 6.7 inches, the same as the OnePlus 9 Pro. This corresponds to the now official dimensions, which are 163 × 73.9 × 8.55 mm.

The battery is officially 5,000mAh, an upgrade from the 9 Pro’s 4,500mAh battery. Considering the similar dimensions between the two phones, this is a welcome improvement in battery density. OnePlus also offers a massive 80W “SuperVOOC” fast charge, an improvement over last year’s 65W “Warp Charge”. OnePlus gives no indication of what kind of charging time we can expect, but 65W could charge the 9 Pro’s 4,500mAh battery from 0 to 100 in half an hour. Charging speed always exceeds battery growth, so the 10 Pro should charge in under half an hour. Like last year, wireless charging is 50 W.

OnePlus has billed itself as a rambling startup in the past, but it’s actually owned by Chinese company BBK Electronics, one of the world’s largest smartphone makers. Just like General Motors, BBK owns several brands (OnePlus, Oppo, Vivo, Realme, and iQOO) targeting different markets, and they share many parts and engineering. While OnePlus and Oppo have always shared some engineering resources, last year it was announced that OnePlus would in fact be folded in Oppo.

The OnePlus Opposition is going to be a major story for the OnePlus 10 Pro. We can already see a little with the transition from “Warp Charging” (OnePlus brand) to “SuperVOOC” (Oppo brand). But what really matters is the software, which will see OnePlus adopt Oppo’s Android Color OS skin with a few custom tweaks rather than the separate code bases the two companies used. We got a glimpse of this design direction through the OnePlus 9 Android 12 update and reviews. were not nice. But we’ll see what the first new phone software brings.

On the design side, the camera unit is really the only area where Android OEMs allow themselves to differentiate themselves from the standard. This year, OnePlus is opting for this square design that wraps around the side of the phone. It looks a lot like the Galaxy S21 Ultra camera block, except it’s rolled up all the way around the corner. Inside the camera block are three cameras and an LED flash. At present, OnePlus only discloses the number of megapixels, namely 48MP, 50MP and 8MP.

It's not <em>not</em> an official image, but the clearly accurate November OnLeaks leak is still our only look at the front of the phone. “src =” https://cdn.arstechnica.net/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/ 3-980×735.jpg “width =” 980 “height =” 735″/></a><figcaption class=

We don’t have a photo of the front yet, so above is OnLeak’s made unofficial a few months ago. This has the camera hole on the left side instead of the middle. Other than that, it looks like every other Android phone on the market.

Maybe it’s because of Oppo’s influence, but the launch of OnePlus is quite odd this year. The phone will be launched in China for the first time on January 11. We don’t have a price yet, but OnePlus’ flagship prices have increased every year so far, and the 9 Pro was $ 969. There’s also no word on a US release date yet.
