OnePlus 10 series might be making an earlier-than-expected debut at CES 2021 next month. An invite for the OnePlus event for January 5 has apparently surfaced online, and the company could bring in the 10 Pro and 10 in Las Vegas next month.
The 10 series is likely to first hit retail shelves in China and the global availability will reportedly commence later in March - April next year.
The early arrival isn’t out of place considering that the brand skipped the 9T upgrade in the second half of this year. However, it’s also likely that OnePlus will share a teaser for these upcoming flagships.
Meanwhile, OnePlus officially merged with parent company Oppo and launched a few Nord phones in the mid-range. In India, OnePlus is reportedly also launching 9RT, an upgrade to OnePlus 9R, on December 17 to celebrate its 8th year anniversary.
OnePlus 10 Pro is rumoured to sport a 6.7-inch QHD display with a 120Hz variable refresh rate. The phone is confirmed to employ Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC which will likely be paired with up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
The square camera module at the back will retain Hasselblad branding. The primary camera will allegedly have a 48MP sensor, accompanied by a 50MP wide-angle shooter, and an 8MP telephoto camera with 3.3x optical zoom. Not much has been reported about the OnePlus 10, but it’s likely to retain similar specifications.
An interesting highlight of the 10 series phones will be their software. OnePus earlier announced that the unified version of ColorOS and OxygenOS will debut with the 2022 flagship. The OxygenOS 12 update that’s based on Android 12 has started rolling out for the OnePlus 9 Pro and 9, but this one isn’t major deviance from the OxygenOS 11, at least on the surface.
