OnePlus co-founder Pete Lau has confirmed that the company’s upcoming flagship, the OnePlus 10 Pro, will be released in January. The company is likely to also introduce the OnePlus 10 alongside the Pro variant. The device has been leaked several times before the firm confirmed its existence.
The leaked renders showcased a new design for the upcoming smartphone featuring a big sized rectangular shaped camera module. The rumours and reports also suggest that the handset will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon Gen 1 SoC. Soon after the announcement the OnePlus 10 Pro concept renders also appeared on the web, which looks similar to the previously leaked images.
The news was confirmed by the executive via a post on the Chinese microblogging site Weibo. However, the launch date is yet to be confirmed but the OnePlus 10 Pro launched is likely to take place during the upcoming CES 2022. The tech event is scheduled to be held between January 5 to January 8, 2022. The company will be hosting a physical launch event in Las Vegas, but they might also live stream the event.
Though both OnePlus 10 and OnePlus 10 Pro have been leaked several times but the fresh OnePlus 10 Pro Concept Video Renders revealed the form factor of the device to the colour options it will be available in. The device is said to be offered in four colour options of Black, Green, Purple and Silver.
The leaked renders also suggest the OnePlus 10 Pro will be highlighted with a curved display and rounded edges. Speaking more about the design the phone is seen retaining the alert slider on the right side of the frame along with the power button. While the volume rocker is placed on the other side of the frame. The OnePlus flagship smartphone’s bottom frame has a USB Type-C port, but there is no headphone jack.
The alleged renders showed a large rectangular camera module with Hasselblad engraved in the corner and the company’s logo engraved in the middle of the back panel. The renders further revealed a hole-punch cutout at the top left corner of the screen while bezels are sleek.
In addition to this, it is rumoured to feature a 6.7-inch LTPO AMOLED display with 2,048 x 1,080 pixels of resolution. The screen will have a refresh rate support of 120Hz. The mobile is also speculated to come with an IP68 rating for protection against dust and water resistance. It is said to be shipped with Oppo and OnePlus’s shared operating system.
As we mentioned earlier the OnePlus 10 Pro might equip Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset but will be paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. According to the report, the handset could house a 5,000mAh battery.
