OnePlus 10R, Nord Buds launched in India
The price of the new OnePlus 10R in India is Rs 38,999 for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage option with 80W SuperVOOC charging. The pricing of the 12GB RAM + 256GB model with 80W SuperVOOC charging is Rs 42,999.
On the other hand, the 10R Endurance Edition comes with 150W SuperVOOC fast charging and costs Rs 43,999 in a single 12GB RAM + 256GB capacity.
It comes with an all-new design language that has not been seen before on any OnePlus device. The flat rear glass plate on this phone is highlighted by a unique dual pattern design which helps this phone stand out from all other smartphones in the market.
The OnePlus 10R, which is basically a rebranded OnePlus Ace, has a 6.7-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 20:9 aspect ratio and runs OxygenOS 12.1 based on Android 12. It has a 120Hz dynamic refresh rate and a touch response rate of up to 720Hz.
This OnePlus smartphone is powered by a new custom MediaTek Dimensity 8100-Max SoC and up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM.
OnePlus claims that the Dimensity 8100-Max SoC in the 10R improves multi-core performance by 11 percent, GPU performance by 20 percent, battery efficiency by 25 percent, and AI performance by 80 percent. The chipset is equipped with 3D PAssive Cooling Technology, which employs a 4,100mm square vapour chamber to regulate temperature.

A HyperBoost Gaming Engine and a General Performance Adapter (GPA) Frame Stabilizer are included, both of which are said to provide smooth gaming performance.
The OnePlus 10R has a triple rear camera system for photography. The camera features a 50MP Sony IMX766 main sensor and an f/1.88 lens with optical image stabilisation.
A Sony IMX355 sensor with an ultra-wide f/2.2 lens and a 2MP macro camera are also included. For selfies and video calls, there’s a 16MP Samsung ISOCELL S5K3P9 camera with an f/2.4 lens and EIS support on the front.
The 4,500mAh battery of the OnePlus 10R 5G Endurance Edition edition supports 150W SuperVOOC rapid charging. A 5,000mAh battery is included in the model with 80W SuperVOOC rapid charging. Dual stereo speakers and noise cancellation are among the phone’s other features.
OnePlus Nord Buds
Not sure if launching TWS earbuds under the Nord brand makes sense, but, the new OnePlus Nord Buds replace the Buds Z as the brand’s most affordable TWS earbuds at Rs 3,000.
The 12.4 mm drivers of the OnePlus Nord Buds enable Dolby Atmos. To fine-tune the sound, use the companion app to choose from many Sound Master EQ settings (including a custom one).
The buds have a pretty decent battery life as well — they can play music for up to 7 hours on their own, with the carrying case adding another 30 hours of listening time. OnePlus is known for its quick charging, and this device is no exception; a 10-minute charge equals 5 hours of playing.
These use Bluetooth 5.2 and offer a Pro Gamer mode that reduces latency to 94 milliseconds. However, audio codec support is restricted, with just SBC and AAC supported.
They also offer rapid pairing when using a OnePlus phone or other Android phones, which is a benefit (using the HeyMelody app). There is no ANC, but each bud has two microphones that produce clear sound during conversations.
Black Slate and White Marble are the two colours offered for the Nord Buds. You get an IP55 rating here that allows them to be used in the gym or in the rain.
