After a few weeks of leaks regarding the OnePlus 10 Pro adorning the online news, the smartphone has finally launched officially in China. Yes! There are quite a few big upgrades that OnePlus packs into this flagship smartphone.
OnePlus 10 Pro arrives with the latest chipset from Qualcomm. Not only that, the smartphone is equipped with a faster charging feature. Last but not least, the OnePlus 10 Pro is packed with a second-generation LTPO screen that is supported by a more flexible adaptive refresh rate.
The 10 Pro comes with a 6.7-inch LTPO 2.0 AMOLED display and has a 1440p resolution. The panels support adaptive refresh rates anywhere from 1Hz to 120Hz and second-generation LTPO panels, allowing them to lower frame rates in more cases, improve battery life.
As already mentioned, the OnePlus 10 Pro comes as a flagship smartphone, so OnePlus also provides this smartphone with a superior chipset. Yes! The OnePlus 10 Pro is equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, which is paired with 8GB or 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB or 256GB of UFS 3.1 internal storage.
Meanwhile, in the camera sector, the OnePlus 10 Pro was once again developed in collaboration with Hasselblad. The main sensor is a 48MP Sony IMX789 with 1.12μm pixels, 1/1.43″ size and an f/1.8 lens. The Samsung JN1 50MP sensor sits behind the 150-degree lens of the ultra-wide camera.
The third camera is an 8 MP telephoto unit with 3.3x optical zoom. While on the front, this smartphone is equipped with a selfie camera with a 32MP Sony IMX615 sensor and an f/2.4 lens. The Hasselblad partnership delivers Natural Color Optimization 2.0, which promises colors closer to real life. There’s also Pro Mode 2.0 RAW.
The OnePlus 10 Pro comes with ColorOS 12.1, based on Android 12 in China. It is possible that when this smartphone is sold in the global market it will run with the OxygenOS interface, although OnePlus itself did not reveal it publicly.
From the launch stage, OnePlus spent nearly 20 minutes of the event talking about Hyperboost. This allows users to push the hardware to the max when gaming, and there are several tools for “overclocking” the CPU, which means locking all eight cores at their maximum frequency.
To prevent overheating issues, OnePlus has upgraded the cooling system, which is now said to be “55% the size of an A4 sheet of paper”, or about 340 sq.cm. The cooling will also come in handy for charging as the 5,000 mAh battery comes with 80W fast wired charging and 50W wireless charging.
The OnePlus 10 Pro was first launched in China with two color options, Black and Green. The panel has a sandstone finish like some classic OnePlus devices. One thing’s for sure, it’s no ordinary rear glass. This smartphone is sold starting at CNY4,699 (Rp. 10.5 million).
