First out of the gates in 2022, OnePlus has a new flagship for anyone already looking to refresh their smartphone. The company refrains from revealing absolutely everything (well, most things), but that hasn’t stopped the leaks and rumors of a 6.7-inch display with high refresh rates and the very latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor.
It followed Tuesday night with a barrage of specs. They include a 120Hz Fluid AMOLED with LTPO display, meaning the phone can adjust the refresh rates to improve battery life. There are no details on the screen size, but the rumors suggest it will be a decent-sized 6.7-inch display. OnePlus will include 80W fast charging and 50W wireless charging in its new flagship, which should be plenty fast when the 5,000mAh battery needs to be charged.
The OnePlus 10 Pro is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, running Android 12 with OnePlus’ OxygenOS tricks and aesthetics. When it comes to cameras, expect 48- and 50-megapixel sensors with an additional 8MP sensor. Optical zoom options? We don’t know yet, but the camera array will feature dual optical image stabilization, which should help with sharper images, less noise and better low-light performance. That said, the OnePlus 9 Pro’s camera performance was one of the weak points of an otherwise impressive smartphone.
Hopefully the 10 Pro can rectify that. OnePlus laid out some of the upgrades it’s making to its Hasselblad-branded camera, including a new RAW+ shooting mode that attempts to combine the editing range of RAW format images with computational photography, which should result in a wider dynamic range. and noise reduction.
The phone also has a new 150-degree ultra-wide camera, with a new fisheye mode. If you’re worried about stretched faces in group shots, don’t worry: there’s a “more traditional” 110-degree FOV that includes distortion correction for those outer edges of a shot.
OnePlus says its new “Billion Color Solution” means photos on the 10 Pro have a 25 percent expanded DCI-P3 color gamut and the phone can handle 64 times more colors than the OnePlus 9 Pro. It says this will remove any hint of color bands from shots.
In addition, any camera on the OnePlus 10 Pro can take photos in 12-bit RAW, using what Hasselblad calls Natural Color Solution. The phone also features a new RAW+ format that allows you to edit to your heart’s content while still taking advantage of computational photography assistance. OnePlus has offered a few samples, but it’s something we’ll understand better when we can finally test the new flagship later this year.
The big challenge could be balancing price, specs and features so that it rivals the high-end phones from Apple and Samsung. At the same time, it has tangibly more to offer than its cheaper Nord phone series.
The OnePlus 10 Pro will be launched first in China on Tuesday, January 11.
