OnePlus 10 Pro debuts with 80W fast charging
Today marks the official launch of the OnePlus 10 Pro in China. The new flagship is a significant upgrade over its predecessor, with Qualcomm’s newest processor, quicker charging, and a second-generation LTPO display with even greater adaptive refresh rate flexibility.
The 10 Pro is equipped with a 6.7-inch display LTPO 2.0 AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440p. The panel offers adaptive refresh rates ranging from 1Hz to 120Hz, and the panel’s second-generation LTPO technology enables it to drop the frame rate in even more situations, further increasing energy savings.
The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, which is unsurprising. It will have 8GB or 12GB of LPDDR5 memory and 128GB or 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
The new Hyperboost feature enables you to push the hardware to its limits for gaming reasons, and some apps allow you to “overclock” the CPU, which essentially means that all eight cores are clocked at their maximum frequency. To address overheating concerns, OnePlus has enhanced the cooling system well.
Cameras on the OnePlus 10 Pro were developed in collaboration with Hasselblad once again. The primary sensor is a 48MP Sony IMX89 with 1.12μm pixels and a resolution of 1/1.43 “in terms of size and the f/1.8 lens in front of it. The 50MP Samsung JN1 lies behind the ultrawide shooter’s 150-degree lens.
The third camera is an 8MP telephoto lens with a 3.3x optical zoom. The selfie camera is finally all-new and is equipped with a 32MP Sony IMX615 sensor and an f/2.4 lens.
The Hasselblad collaboration results in Natural Color Optimisation 2.0, which promises colours that are even more true to life. Additionally, there is a Pro Mode 2.0 RAW shooting mode.
In China, the OnePlus 10 Pro runs ColorOS 12.1, which is based on Android 12, but we expect the global version to continue to run OxygenOS.
The cooling will also help with charging, as the 5,000 mAh battery has 80W fast wired charging, the brand’s quickest ever and approximately 25 percent faster than the norm in the predecessor. The wireless charging at 50W remains remarkably quick.
The OnePlus 10 Pro will first be available in China in two colour options: black and green. The panels are finished in sandstone, similar to the look on certain previous OnePlus phones.
Prices begin at CNY4,699 (~Rs 54,500/USD 740) for the entry-level 8GB/128GB model. OnePlus did not provide details on a possible worldwide launch, although local landing sites state that “open sale begins this spring”.
