OnePlus 10 Pro is the company’s first flagship phone after its merger with sister company, Oppo. The launch of OnePlus devices often creates a lot of excitement, and this news has only added to it. The phone was first announced on the 11th of January and released a couple of days later. The phone comes at a starting price of 4,699 yuan, which translates to $737. For colors, you get to choose between Black and Green. The base variant has 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. The other two variants have 256 GB ROM with 8 GB and 12 GB of RAM.
The RAM and memory type used here are the latest LPDDR5 and UFS 3.1. On the flip side, there’s no option to extend the phone’s internal memory. While the device doesn’t accommodate an SD card, there is room for two Nano-SIM cards. The phone can handle connections from 2G to 5G. One of the biggest advantages of owning OnePlus devices is that you get regular software updates, and the OnePlus 10 Pro continues that tradition.
The phone will get major Android updates for 3 years and security updates for 4. The OnePlus 10 Pro runs Android 12.1, with ColorOS 12.1 on top. As expected, the Qualcomm SM8450 Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor performs brilliantly. The Adreno 730 GPU handles the phone’s gaming requirements, which is supported by the 120 Hz screen refresh rate. The phone has a massive score of 9,80,000 points in the AnTuTu benchmark test. The phone’s build quality is almost ideal. The reason it’s not perfect is that the device lacks IP certification for dust and water resistance.
On the positive side, the device has an aluminum frame. Also, its glass front and back are protected by Gorilla Glass Victus and Gorilla Glass, respectively. Coming to the dimensions, the device measures 6.42 by 2.91 by 0.34 inches and weighs 200.5 grams. The smartphone has a 6.7-inch QHD+ LTPO2 AMOLED screen that can go up to 1300 nits of brightness. The OnePlus 10 Pro smart device has a screen-to-body ratio of 90% and a super impressive PPI density of 525.
The device also has support for HDR10+ and, unsurprisingly, delivers an amazing multimedia experience. The experience is also improved by the presence of high-resolution audio and stereo speakers. Besides all the usual sensors, the device has a color spectrum sensor. In the communication department, the smartphone has dual-band Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, Hotspot, Bluetooth 5.2, USB On-The-Go, and GPS. The device lacks FM Radio, but NFC is present, which is often the case with flagship phones. For charging, the device uses USB Type-C 3.1.
It has a 5000 mAh lithium polymer non-removable battery that supports 80W fast charging. The phone can also handle 50W fast wireless charging, reverse wireless charging, and USB power delivery. If you are an average user, you should get close to 1.5 days of use out of it. Moving to the cameras, the phone delivers a solid performance in that regard. On the rear, the phone features a triple camera. It has a 48 MP wide-angle camera with OIS (optical image stabilization), an 8 MP OIS telephoto camera with 3.3x optical zoom, and a 50 MP ultrawide camera.
Apart from all the usual camera features, the phone has Hasselblad Color Calibration and gyro-EIS (electronic image stabilization). On the front, the OnePlus 10 Pro has a 32 MP wide-angle camera for selfies. The rear camera setup can record videos up to 8K, while the selfie camera only does so in 1080p.
