Love it or hate it, there is no denying that OnePlus is still making smartphones that impress a lot of people. The brand has traded some of its old-school enthusiast leanings in favor of mainstream audience appeal, and that has worked in their favor. With the start of 2022, it’s time for another string of smartphone releases and the company is ready for the year with its flagship. this is that OnePlus 10 Pro, and it will be launched in China next week.
OnePlus has finally officially announced that the OnePlus 10 Pro will be launched in China on Tuesday, January 11, 2022. Along with the launch announcement, the company has also released official marketing renders of the device in green and black colors.
As you can see, the OnePlus 10 Pro is very similar to what we saw in the leaked renderings in advance of this announcement. Note that none of the OnePlus renders show the front of the device, but we don’t expect any major surprises there anyway. What’s also missing is any mention of the regular OnePlus 10 – the announcement specifically mentions the OnePlus 10 Pro and not the OnePlus 10 series as the company has in the past, suggesting that we might be at the Chinese launch event just see a phone.
What is striking about the OnePlus 10 Pro is the camera island, which is reminiscent of the camera island on the Galaxy S21. The Hasselblad logo has a prominent place in this generation too. We’re happy that OnePlus is giving up the idea of a fourth, but practically useless, tertiary rear camera, as the fourth point houses the LED flash. The alarm slider can also be seen on the side. On the black paint variant, we can see what looks like a sandstone finish.
We expect to learn more about the OnePlus 10 Pro in the coming days, especially as the Chinese launch approaches. If leaks are to be believed, one can expect the global launch to take place in a few months.
