It’s also worth noting that this is only the OnePlus 10 Pro. We haven’t heard anything official regarding the basic OnePlus 10, which is expected to arrive later this year.
Everything else, however, is now known, from the design and display to the cameras, battery, and beyond, and you can discover all the details in this post.
Cut to the chase
- What is it? The latest flagship OnePlus phone
- When is it out? It’s already launched in China, likely soon elsewhere
- How much will it cost? Unclear, but expect a premium price
OnePlus 10 Pro release date and price
The OnePlus 10 Pro was disclosed in a China-just send off on January 11, 2022, and the organization has affirmed that the telephone will send off worldwide later in the year.
Annoyingly they haven’t got any more explicit than that, however we wouldn’t figure the stand by will be excessively long, particularly as the OnePlus 9 Pro arrived in March 2021, and for sure holes propose that the OnePlus 10 Pro will get its worldwide send off in one or the other March or April. That probably implies we’ll see the Samsung Galaxy S22 before the OnePlus 10 Pro send-offs around the world.
Note anyway that this worldwide send off will exclude Australia, as OnePlus doesn’t sell its telephones there. We completely hope to get the OnePlus 10 Pro in the two US and the UK however, particularly as the organization has explicitly said it’s coming to North America, Europe and India.
Concerning the value, it’s impossible to say there as of now, however, for reference, the OnePlus 9 Pro began at £829 (about $969, AU$1,250) – with the US just getting a pricier model with 12GB of RAM for $1,069/£929 (around AU$1,400).
OnePlus revealed the design of the OnePlus 10 Pro ahead of time, so if you’ve been keeping up to date with this phone then there won’t be much new to learn here.
The OnePlus 10 Pro comes in only two tones – a decision of Volcanic Black or Emerald Forest, the last option being a green shade. Each consolidates miniature gems, giving the back a somewhat more finished look.
A feature of the plan is the metal camera block, which converges with the edge and is an alternate tone to the remainder of the back (dark in the two cases, yet a glossier dark than the remainder of the Volcanic Black model).
The aluminum outline in the mean time is either green or dark, contingent upon which model you go for, yet with a metallic sheen not found on the main part of the back.
The OnePlus 10 Pro comes in at 163 x 73.9 x 8.55mm, and the OnePlus hasn’t said how much the telephone gauges, however has said weight conveyance leaves it feeling impeccably adjusted in the hand.
At long last, OnePlus has referenced that the telephones utilize intense Gorilla Glass Victus (which is the most recent age of Corning’s cell phone assurance), however, it’s not satisfactory whether this is utilized on the front, the back, or both.
The OnePlus 10 Pro features a 6.7-inch QHD+ display with a refresh rate of 120Hz. It also employs second-generation LTPO technology, which according to OnePlus allows it to move between 1Hz and 120Hz faster than the OnePlus 9 Pro, resulting in lower power usage.
In addition, the screen uses Dual Color Calibration, which is an industry first. This indicates that the display has been calibrated to offer correct colours regardless of brightness, resulting in more consistently high-quality graphics.
There’s a ton happening with the cameras on the OnePlus 10 Pro, yet in short it has a 48MP primary camera, a 50MP super wide one (with an extra-wide 150-degree field-of-view), and a 8MP fax one, alongside a 32MP snapper on the front.
Looking nearer, each of the three back cameras can shoot in 10-cycle tone, which fundamentally implies it can catch a more prominent scope of shadings than most cell phone cameras.
The OnePlus 10 Pro additionally incorporates a few better than ever shooting modes, including another Fisheye mode with the super wide focal point, and another Master Style mode, which allows you to choose between three diverse shading styles (Serenity, Radiance or Emerald), which have been adjusted by expert picture takers.
Each style is best suited to a specific type of photo, with Serenity being ideal for portraits, Radiance for hyperrealism, and Emerald for landscapes.
This year, OnePlus also upgraded the Hasselblad Pro Mode, introducing support for 12-bit RAW capture across all three rear lenses. There’s also a new RAW+ mode, which allows you to shoot in 12-bit RAW while preserving the brand’s computational photography aspects — so you should get photos that look finished right out of the camera while still being fully customizable. It sounds similar to Apple’s ProRAW format.
Finally, there’s a Movie Mode that allows you to change the white balance, ISO, and shutter speed before and while filming. You can also shoot in LOG mode without a photo profile.
The OnePlus 10 Pro’s battery is a significant boost, since it not only has a capacity of 5,000mAh (up from 4,500mAh in the OnePlus 9 Pro), but it also supports 80W fast charging (up from 65W in the OnePlus 9 Pro).
This allows it to charge from 0% to 100% in 32 minutes, and if you prefer wireless charging, you can do it at 50W, taking the phone from 0% to 100% in 47 minutes. However, the wireless charging power has not improved over last year’s phone.
In addition, the OnePlus 10 Pro comes with an 80W charger, so you won’t need to buy one separately.

The OnePlus 10 Pro comes equipped with a high-end Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU (which is expected to be the main high-end Android chipset in 2022), as well as up to 12GB of RAM.
