OnePlus 10 series could feature hardware upgrades.
Reports suggest there may not be design upgrades over OnePlus 9 series.
OnePlus 10 is likely to be the company's new flagship and is set for launch next year. And even though we are month away from the launch of the device, leaks about the device have already started surfacing. According to a new leak by tipster Yogesh Brar, the OnePlus 10 series of smartphones will eventually be launched as a polished version of the OnePlus 9 series. As such, the phone is tipped to come with enhanced specs, but a design similar to the OnePlus 9 series.
While there is no official information yet, the expectation is that the OnePlus 10 lineup may become official in March next year. Ahead of the launch, we are expected to see more information about the device come in. For now, the leak suggests that the company is also working on new Nord branded smartphones. These will be alongside new accessories that will also launch in October.
Previously, according to a report by Harish Jonnalagadda of Android Central, OnePlus will launch the OnePlus 9 RT sometime in October. As hinted by the name, the phone is expected to be an upgrade over the OnePlus 9R and will be limited to India and China. As per the report, the OnePlus 9 RT will have camera upgrades and will likely be the first phone to run on OxygenOS 12 out-of-the-box.
OnePlus 9T: Expected specs
The OnePlus 9 RT is essentially similar to the OnePlus 9R save for some camera upgrades. The report states that the OnePlus 9 RT will feature the same 6.55-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, Snapdragon 870 chip and a 4,500mAh battery that supports 65W fast charging. The upgrade comes in the form of the 50MP primary camera based on the Sony IMX766 that we recently saw on the Nord 2.
The rest of the camera sensors are expected to remain the same which includes a 16MP ultra-wide camera, 5MP macro camera and 2MP depth sensor. As per the report, the OnePlus 9 RT is also slated to run on OxygenOS 12 that has more in common with Oppo’s ColorOS as a result of both companies merging their Research and Development departments. Having said that, OxygenOS 12 retains all the good features that have made it such a fluid UI including utilities like work-life balance, Zen mode, Scout and Shelf.
