Official product news about the upcoming OnePlus 10 Pro is starting to trickle down. For now we have an incomplete overview with some photos and specs, while things like a price, release date and the finer details have to wait a little longer.

First: specifications. OnePlus 10 Pro officially has the brand new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. This is Qualcomm’s new flagship SoC for 2022, and it features a single ARM Cortex X2 core, three medium Cortex A710 CPUs, and four small Cortex A510 CPUs, all built on a 4 nm process. OnePlus won’t say how much RAM and storage the 10 Pro will have, but the 9 Pro came with either 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage. The company confirmed that the display is 120Hz but did not specify the size, although rumors say it is 6.7-inches, the same as the OnePlus 9 Pro. That fits with the now official dimensions, namely 163 × 73.9 × 8.55 mm.

The battery is officially 5000 mAh, an upgrade from the 4500 mAh battery of the 9 Pro. Considering the similar dimensions between the two phones, this is a welcome upgrade in battery density. OnePlus can now also charge a whopping 80W “SuperVOOC” fast – an improvement over last year’s 65W “Warp Charge”. OnePlus gives no indication of what kind of charging time we can expect, but 65W could charge the 9 Pro’s 4500 mAh battery from 0-100 in half an hour. Charging speed still outpaces battery growth, so the 10 Pro should charge in less than half an hour. Like last year, wireless charging is 50W.

OnePlus has promoted itself as a scrappy startup in the past, but it’s actually owned by the Chinese company BBK Electronics, one of the world’s largest smartphone manufacturers. Like General Motors, BBK has multiple brands (OnePlus, Oppo, Vivo, Realme, and iQOO) targeting different markets, and they share many parts and tech. While OnePlus and Oppo have always shared some tech resources, it was announced last year that OnePlus would actually fold into Oppo.

The opposition of OnePlus will be an important story for the OnePlus 10 Pro. We can already see a bit of it with the change from “Warp Charging” (OnePlus branding) to “SuperVOOC” (Oppo branding). But what really matters is the software, which allows OnePlus to inherit Oppo’s Color OS Android skin with a few custom tweaks rather than the separate codebases the two companies used. We got a glimpse of this design direction through the Android 12 update of the OnePlus 9 and the reviews weren’t kind. But we’ll see what the first new phone software brings.

In terms of design, the camera block is really the only area where Android OEMs can set themselves apart from the norm. This year, OnePlus is going with this square design that wraps around the side of the phone. It looks a lot like the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s camera block, except it’s wrapped around the entire corner. The camera block contains three cameras and an LED flash. Right now, OnePlus only reveals the megapixel count, which is 48MP, 50MP and 8MP.

We don’t have a picture of the front yet, so above is the unofficial rendering of OnLeak from a few months ago. This has the camera hole on the left instead of the center. Other than that, it looks like every other Android phone on the market.

It may be because of the influence of Oppo, but the launch of OnePlus this year is a bit weird. The phone will be launched in China on January 11. We don’t have a price yet, but OnePlus’ flagship prices have soared every year so far and the 9 Pro cost $969. There’s also no word on a US release date yet.
