The OnePlus 10 Pro, the Chinese manufacturer’s new flagship, is therefore official. This is no surprise to anyone considering all the indiscretions he has been subjected to in recent months.
This model naturally succeeds the OnePlus 9 Pro, taking up a good part of the characteristics which made the strength and the singularity of the flagship of 2021. But inevitably, there are some additions. Starting with the appearance of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, the most recent Qualcomm SoC. It is here coupled with 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256 GB of storage in UFS 3.1
The company continues to offer a 6.7-inch Amoled QHD + panel. The LTPO display offers an adaptive refresh rate up to 120Hz (the screen oscillates between 1 and 120Hz this year). OnePlus also indicates that its screen is the first to benefit from a very precise calibration, whatever the brightness, thanks to a “dual color calibration”. As a result, natural shades in all circumstances, which we will be sure to check with our probes when we receive the device.
The smartphone has a 5,000 mAh battery, compared to 4,500 mAh with its predecessor. It also benefits from a SuperVOOC charge at 80 W wired and 50 W wireless. According to the manufacturer, refueling takes only 32 minutes with the dedicated charging block and 47 minutes with the Qi charge.
The partnership with Hasselblad goes further
During CES 2022 in Las Vegas, OnePlus detailed the improvements made to its photo software, developed jointly with the Swedish company Hasselblad. The OnePlus 10 Pro is now capable of capturing 12-bit raw images on all three modules. As for the software processing, it offers more natural and accurate colors, thanks to a new solution called One Billion Colors. On the video side, videographers can now change certain settings such as white balance or ISO while they are filming.
Like Apple and the iPhone 13 Pro, OnePlus has developed photographic “styles” for its latest flagship. Three in number, they were created with the help of Yin Chao, ambassador for Hasselblad, but also of Ben Thomas and David Peskens, winners of the Hasselblad Masters photo competition. Serenity is better suited to portraits, Emerald to landscape or animal shots. As for Radiance, it will give a hyperrealistic side to your images. On paper, the idea sounds appealing. It remains to be seen how this will translate once in our hands.
Now let’s take a look at the three modules of the OnePlus 10 Pro. The main one is a 48-megapixel wide-angle, the famous Sony IMX789 which debuted last year on the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro. The 50-megapixel ultra-wide-angle, on the other hand, provides a viewing angle of 150 ° and allows fisheye shots to be taken. Finally, the telephoto lens, associated with an 8 megapixel sensor, offers a x3.3 optical zoom. It has an optical stabilizer, as on the wide-angle.
A smartphone reserved for the moment for China
We will have to show a little patience before being able to get our hands on this OnePlus 10 Pro, the smartphone being for the moment reserved for China. Sales will start on January 13th. Availability in France is expected in the spring. The mobile will be delivered under Android 12, with ColorOS 12.1 in Asia. With us, the OxygenOS interface will prevail, in version 12.
