Now, we don’t know whether it’s a case of OnePlus trying to steal Samsung’s thunder (or vice versa), but January 4th—exactly a week from today—certainly looks like it marks a special day on the calendars of both companies. The listing on the Chinese retail website doesn’t reveal any more information, other than that the OnePlus 10 Pro is to be released to the Chinese market next Tuesday. However, we’ve already got more or less a full spec sheet of what to expect on this latest flagship, which—unlike previous years—may only launch as a solitary “Pro”-labeled flagship, with no standard OnePlus 10 model to accompany the higher-tier version.
The founder of Chinese consumer electronics company OnePlus has stated that the OnePlus 10 Pro will undoubtedly enter the market in January. However, we didn’t have anything concrete in the form of a deadline—at least not until now. The mid-range flagship will be available for pre-order on January 4th, according to a listing uncovered by a Chinese vendor. That is also the date on which we expect the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE to be unveiled during Samsung’s “Together for Tomorrow” presentation (although the device itself will most likely go on sale on January 11th, according to the latest leaks).
So far, the Oneplus 10 Pro is expected to come with a 6.7-inch AMOLED display, complete with a cutting-edge 120Hz refresh rate for the smoothest possible gameplay experience. As for the processor, the phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor from Qualcomm. OnePlus 10 Pro is one of the first companies to use this SoC; the only other two companies that got to it first have been Realme and Motorola. The OnePlus 10 Pro battery life is also said to be a hefty 5000 mAh battery, with support for 80W wired charging rates. Finally, the rear camera setup should include a 48MP primary sensor, coupled by a 32MP hole-punch selfie camera on the leftmost corner of the front display.
