Right off the bat, we can see that the upcoming flagship will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, which Qualcomm claims is the fastest CPU available for Android-based smartphones. The new chip, which was announced in November, is expected to support always-on cameras and has already made its way into the Chinese market with the Motorola Edge X30. The device will run on the in-house developed OxygenOS 12, built on Android 12.
The flagship will also be Hasselblad-tuned, with a triple camera setup sporting 48, 50 and 8-megapixel shooters housed inside a ceramic bump on the rear end. According to OnePlus, the ceramic camera bump is 13x stronger than glass, so the phone isn’t likely to have durability issues. Lau’s post also states that the front shooter will be 32-megapixels and that the phone will feature a 120Hz AMOLED display.
The OnePlus 10 Pro will feature a 5,000mAh battery, along with support for wired (80W), wireless (50W) and reverse-wireless charging.
Other information revealed by Lau includes support for NFC, VoLTE (Voice over LTE), VoWi-Fi (Voice over Wi-Fi) and dual stereo speakers.
The OnePlus 10 Pro will be available in ‘Emerald Forest’ (green) and ‘Volcanic Ash’ (black) colorways and use a USB-C charging port.
