The official specifications for the OnePlus 10 Pro aren’t shocking in the least

OnePlus is spacing out the details of the OnePlus 10 Pro flagship in drips and drabs rather than announcing everything at once. First, it issued an official teaser image that revealed the phone’s design as well as a January 11th release date in China. It’s now revealing the phone’s specifications, which include the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 engine, ultra fast charging, and a 5,000mAh battery.

None of these things will surprise you if you’ve been following Android news over the previous few months. In the United States, flagship Android phones all tend to use Qualcomm’s most powerful CPU, and OnePlus is getting a slight head start on Samsung by being the first big smartphone to use the new chip.

The rest of the specifications are likely to be expected. Unfortunately, OnePlus is still excluding a few critical data, such as the amount of RAM on each model, costs, exact screen sizes, and international release dates. In any case, here are some of the specifications that it’s revealing today:

  • Processor: Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
  • Rear camera: 48MP + 50 MP + 8MP, Dual OIS
  • Front camera: 32MP
  • Display: 120Hz “Fluid AMOLED with LTPP”
  • Battery: 5,000mAh
  • Wired charging: 80W SuperVOOC
  • Wireless charging: 50W AirVOOC
  • OS: OxygenOS 12
  • Dimensions: 163 x 73.9 x 8.55mm

In that list, there are a few things worth noting. The OnePlus 10 not only runs on Oppo’s operating system, but it also has Oppo’s logo on its fast-charging technology. OnePlus has previously employed the similar method, albeit under the name Warp Charge. Aside from the branding, the rated speeds are still insanely fast. The OnePlus 10 Pro’s dimensions also reveal that it’s a big phone, almost as big as a Galaxy S21 Ultra.

There have been plenty of rumours to fill in the blanks, as with every Android phone these days. Peoples are expecting 8GB or 12GB of RAM, as well as 128GB or 256GB of storage. They will have to wait for OnePlus’ next announcement — or the one after that — to learn more about the rest of the details, including a rumoured April release.

Why do firms like OnePlus and Google stagger the release of information about their new phones rather than making a single announcement? Your guess is as good as ours, but the obvious one is most likely correct: it allows them to take repeated bites at the Apple.
