OnePlus presented its new flagship, the OnePlus 10 Pro, for the global market at an online event. We present all information and background information about the German launch of the OnePlus 10 Pro.
The Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus has made a name for itself in recent years primarily through its good price-performance ratio. As a result, the competition around Samsung and Co. has repeatedly come under pressure. Since 2019, however, in addition to the “normal” OnePlus devices, there has also been a Pro version that promises even more features – but for a higher price.
This year, however, the company pursued a different strategy compared to previous years. Instead of doing a single “global launch” where devices launch in all markets at the same time, you have that OnePlus 10 Pro unveiled in China in January.
OnePlus explains this with the Chinese New Year, which can be compared to Christmas for us. However, when asked, the manufacturer promises that this will no longer be the case in the future. A standard version of the OnePlus 10 is not yet available.
OnePlus 10 Pro: technical details
The technical data and the design of the new flagship from OnePlus were already considered an open secret before the event. For example, the new flagship processor from Qualcomm is used as the system-on-a-chip (SoC) – the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
In Germany there will also be two different memory configurations. One with 8 gigabytes of LPDDR5 RAM and 128 gigabytes of internal UFS 3.1 storage, or with 12 and 256 gigabytes.
That AMOLED-Display is measured at 6.67 inches and has a resolution of WQHD+ (3216 × 1440). The LTPO 2.0 technology is used for liquid content, which should display images variably from 1 to 120 Hertz.
OnePlus 10 Pro: triple camera and 80W fast charging
Three cameras sit on the back in a new camera layout that protrudes slightly from the frame. As the main camera, the 48 megapixel sensor “IMX789” from Sony installed – known from the OnePlus 9 Pro. A new Samsung sensor (ISOCELL JN1) is used as the ultra wide-angle camera, which can take 50 megapixel photos with a field of view of 150 degrees.
The third 8-megapixel camera can take telephoto shots, the maximum optical zoom is 3x. Videos can be recorded in 4K at 3/60/120 frames per second or in 8K at 24 frames per second. The manufacturer particularly emphasizes the 10-bit support of all three camera sensors, with much larger color spaces than in the 9 Pro being captured.
