Leaker @OnLeaks shared these details in partnership with 91Mobiles, revealing that the OnePlus 10 Pro apparently has a 6.7-inch QHD + display with a 120Hz refresh rate, and a high-end Snapdragon 8 Gen1 chipset (which could also be launched as Snapdragon 898).The phone also apparently has a choice of 8 GB or 12 GB of RAM, 128 GB or 256 GB of storage, an IP68 water and dust resistance rating, a 5,000 mAh battery, a selfie camera from 32 MP and a triple lens main camera with a 48 MP main sensor, 50MP ultra-wide and 8MP telephoto lens with 3.3x optical zoom.
These camera claims are worth highlighting, as another source recently suggested that the OnePlus 10 Pro would have a quad-lens rear camera – we were skeptical about it at the time, and we are even more skeptical. now with a triple objective looking probable.
That said, there are still questions surrounding the camera, as another source claimed it will offer 5x optical zoom, rather than the 3.3x claimed here.
As for the rest of the specs, we’ve already heard some from the same source as today’s leak, but not from anyone else. So until other sources step in, we would take this with a pinch of salt, but other than the camera, there are no dissenting voices, and @OnLeaks has a good track record, so those details could well be exact.
We should know for sure before too long, as it is rumored that the OnePlus 10 range will be unveiled in January or February, but initially only for China, with a global launch in March or April.
Analysis: make the difference
Taken in isolation, these leaked specs look promising, but compare them to the OnePlus 9 Pro and you’ll see very little seems to change.
If this spec leak is accurate, the rear camera setup could be exactly the same, as could the screen, the amounts of storage and RAM, and the water resistance rating.
The only things here that differ are the chipset, the battery, which could have a higher capacity in the OnePlus 10 Pro (compared to 4,500 mAh in the OnePlus 9 Pro), and the front camera, which could have twice as many megapixels. than the 16 MP one in the OnePlus 9 Pro.
So this doesn’t seem like the most exciting of upgrades. Of course, leaks suggest that the design is changing a bit as well, and that there could be other tweaks as well, such as charging speed. But overall, owners of this year’s model may not need to be in a rush to upgrade it.
