OnePlus may release its next flagship smartphone range, the OnePlus 10 series, earlier than expected. This has been reported by 91Mobiles
and relies on a scoop from leaker Yogesh Brar.
The OnePlus 9
range was released in late March this year and wasn’t followed by a T model, if you count out the OnePlus 9RT
that’s only available in China. That may be one reason why the company is targeting an early 2022 launch date for the OnePlus 10. Per today’s report, the flagship range is in a private testing phase. It’s being tested in Europe and China apparently.
The Chinese company allegedly wants to have it out by late January or February, which roughly coincides with Samsung Galaxy S21
FE and Galaxy S22 range’s launch timelines
, which rumors say will be announced on January 4 and February 8, respectively.
OnePlus 10 Pro to offer record-breaking charging speed and a fresh design
The OnePlus 10 Pro
is expected to flaunt a new Galaxy S21-inspired rear design and a flat Oppo Reno7 Pro-like display with slim bezels and a punch-hole cutout on the left. The display will reportedly measure in at 6.7-inches and it will support refresh rates up to 120Hz.
The rear camera setup is likely to offer a periscope lens with 5x zoom, which would be an upgrade over the OnePlus 9 Pro’s 3.3x optical zoom.
The OnePlus 10 will likely be powered by Qualcomm’s forthcoming flagship chip, the Snapdragon 898, and the Pro model will seemingly come in 128GB and 256GB storage variants.
According to a recent leak, the OnePlus 10 Pro
may offer 125W wired charging
for its rumored 5,000mAh battery. Other details are still a mystery but the supposed specs that have surfaced so far suggest that the OnePlus 10 will be a decent upgrade over its predecessor and may become one of the best handsets
