OnePlus 10 Pro finally launched globally with OxygenOS 12.1; Bullet Wireless Z2 and Radiant Silver Buds Pro Tag Together

OnePlus unveiled the OnePlus 10 Pro in January this year, which has the best specification sheet of a OnePlus phone so far. There was a catch, and that was the lack of a non-Pro version in tow. There’s still only the Pro variant to be found here, but the company is promising a lot of good in a cheaper but more substantial package than last year’s top model.

The OnePlus 10 Pro packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, up to 12GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, and a 6.7-inch LTPO display. The display comes with a 120Hz refresh rate at 1440p and a maximum brightness of 1500 nits. It’s launching at a starting price of $899 in the US and €899 in Europe, going up to $899/€999 for the higher storage version.

design and performance

oneplus 10 pro in green

The new OnePlus 10 Pro comes with a completely different design from the company’s previous device. While the phone is more or less indistinguishable from the front, the rear features a new camera design that is somewhat reminiscent of the Samsung Galaxy S21. It squares off to house three cameras from the edge and it curves out toward the body of the device instead of abruptly cutting. The Hasselblad branding is prominently engraved on the side of Camera Island.

The OnePlus 10 Pro sports a 6.7-inch 120Hz LTPO AMOLED panel, which is very similar to the OnePlus 9 Pro. This is the second generation LTPO, although OnePlus says it can go as low as 1Hz.

Overall, the OnePlus 10 Pro has a lot more personality than last year’s OnePlus 9 Pro. Surrounding the message “P2D 50T” (which means “2nd generation, 50MP, triple-lens”, is an LED flashlight. Below that is the standard OnePlus insignia and not much else.

There is no word yet on whether OnePlus intends to launch the white variant of the OnePlus 10 Pro outside China.


performance and software

OnePlus 10 Pro boasts the latest and greatest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. OnePlus flagships are expected to come with the latest in silicon, and the OnePlus 10 Pro is no exception. You get that chipset with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. In case you’re not familiar, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 retains the 1+3+4 configuration that Qualcomm has been running for some time, with the single prime core being based on ARM’s new Cortex-X2.

It’s essentially the best-performing hardware you can get in a smartphone to date, and OnePlus’ commitment to a fast and smooth operating system is also present with the inclusion of OxygenOS 12.1 based on Android 12. As a result, you can expect some of the highest performance out of any smartphone in the market with the OnePlus 10 Pro.

OnePlus is also promising three years of platform updates, bringing it, in theory, up to an additional year of security patches for Android 15 and beyond.

While the OnePlus 10 Pro’s camera module got an attractive facelift, the hardware inside is identical to last year’s OnePlus 9 Pro: it’s a triple camera system headlined by a 48MP, f/1.8, 1/1.43-inch main camera. Is; 8MP, f/2.4 telephoto zoom lens with 3.3x optical zoom; and a 50MP, f/2.2 ultra-wide camera. The sensors of the main and zoom lens are identical to those of the OnePlus 9 Pro, so the only difference is that the 10 Pro uses a different ultra-wide sensor. This ultra-wide lens is a Samsung JN1 sensor with exactly 150-degree field-of-view, but it’s arguably an inferior sensor to its counterpart in the OnePlus 9 Pro due to a smaller image sensor size.

If you want to read our thoughts on it, we have already reviewed the cameras of the only Chinese model of OnePlus 10 Pro. While we were impressed, this was versus last year’s flagships, so we’ll have to wait and see how it stacks up against recent models.


battery is charging

The OnePlus 10 Pro packs a 5,000 mAh battery in the device, along with an 80W SuperWook charger in the box. It’s an Oppo branded charger this time around, with a USB-A port on the brick instead of the old USB-C port. The phone also supports 50W AirVOOC, OPPO’s wireless charging solution.

The 80W SuperVOOC charger claims to give this phone a full charge in about half an hour, which is incredibly fast and slightly faster than last year’s 65W fast charging that was included in the OnePlus 9 Pro. Note that the US is limited to 65W charging on this device, as the company claims that the 80W SuperVOOC does not currently support the 110/120 volt AC power commonly seen in power outlets in the US. You’re not missing out on much, as 65W fast charging is pretty fast too and the difference between the two will probably be just a few minutes.

Both Bullets Wireless Z and Bullets Wireless Z Bass Edition.

The 12.4mm drivers powering the audio on the OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z are even better – the biggest drivers ever in a OnePlus audio product.
