OnePlus 10 renders and specs leak
Renders of what appears to be the next OnePlus 10 – or at least the next addition to the OnePlus 10 series – have appeared on the internet.
Last week we learned that the OnePlus 10 was not a dead project, as previously assumed. An internet tip suggested that OnePlus was still working on a non-Pro model codenamed Project Ovaltine.
Now, that same source has provided the first renders of said vanilla OnePlus 10 model.
Yogesh Brar provided these images to the MySmartPrice website. They show a device that looks a lot like the OnePlus 10 Pro (pictured above) from the rear, with a similar large square camera plate blending into the frame of the phone, but with a slightly reconfigured lens setup.
Notable by its absence here is any form of Hasselblad branding. Whether this reflects a new Pro-only approach to this partnership, or a mere omission of these unofficial images, remains to be seen.
The most noticeable design difference is around the front, where the selfie camera is placed centrally rather than offset to the side.
Of more concern is the lack of an alert slider on the side of the phone. OnePlus’ continued adoption of this hardware switch has been one of the things that has helped the brand stand out from its legion of Android rivals. We still feel pain whenever a cheaper OnePlus model omits this feature, but it would be a real slap in the face if this premium(ish) model dropped it as well.
In terms of specs, Brar claims that the new OnePlus 10 model will come with a 6.7-inch 120Hz AMOLED display. There will also be a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip and a 4800mAh battery with fast charging of 150W.
It will also have a 50MP Sony IMX766 main sensor, an 8MP ultra wide sensor and a 2MP macro sensor, as well as a 16MP selfie camera. It’s basically the OnePlus Nord 2T camera system.
It’s claimed that the final design will be locked down by the end of the month for production in July, so expect more information – official or otherwise – soon.
There is some indecision from the source on the likely naming of this device. It seems to be a toss up between the OnePlus 10 and the OnePlus 10T 5G.
The presence of faster performance and charging compared to the OnePlus 10 Pro seems to lend weight to the OnePlus 10T name, but we’ll wait and see.
