OnePlus 10 Pro live launch: Get ready for the arrival of the next big Android phone

To update

We’ve heard some phone fans wonder if OnePlus is launching a new Nord phone today, or an entry into its mid-range and entry-level lineup that it launched in 2020.

Honestly, this is not likely. OnePlus has always kept its numbered flagship series and its Nord line entirely separate. They haven’t shared launch or launch dates, and they’re also distinct in terms of design and feature sets.

So we don’t think the OnePlus North 3 or North 2T will show up today – sorry.

The best OnePlus phones

Gone are the days when OnePlus would have one, maybe two phones on sale at the same time. The Chinese firm has been busy diversifying its smartphone portfolio in recent years, and that means it now has a wide variety of devices to choose from.

And we’re here to help you decide which one is right for you, as we’ve rounded up the best oneplus phones you can buy right now.

Where will the OnePlus 10 Pro land on our list? You’ll have to wait for our full review before it can be considered, so keep an eye on this space.

Given that the OnePlus 10 Pro is the only phone coming out today, we’re a bit sad that the company doesn’t really make ‘Lite’ phones.

This isn’t likely to be a cheap phone, and it’s always nice to have an affordable phone for people who can’t afford the super-expensive top-end model. The OnePlus 9 (pictured) was just that for the 9 Pro, for example.

But OnePlus’ wording was explicit that the Pro is the only phone in the lineup, so we’re not expecting an affordable alternative.

We’ll likely hear about OxygenOS 12 at the launch event, meaning OnePlus’s next version of its Android 12 fork.

This is important for all OnePlus fans, as the update could also make its way to some older phones from the brand, so any new update could roll out to more devices over time.

The sneak peek we shared above shows lots of icons like a game controller, music note, paint brush and more; actually, we don’t think this means that all of these features will be changed, possibly more so than the app symbols themselves.

If you’re a big tech fanatic, you might want to check out some of the news we posted this morning, while you wait for the OnePlus event.

Oh, one thing to point out.

We said the OnePlus 10 Pro is rated at 80W, and it is, unless you live in the US. The version of the phone there is only rated at 65W. The company has already confirmed it.

We should probably look at the OnePlus 10 Pro at some point, right? The thing has already launched in China, so we know all about it.

The OnePlus has a 6.7-inch 2K 120Hz display, divided by a punch-hole for the front camera. You can see the design of the phone above.

The cameras are a 48MP main, a 50MP ultra-wide angle and an 8MP telephoto lens; oh, and there’s a 32MP snapper on the front for selfies. That’s 138MP in total, if you’re into math.

The phone has a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset and a 5,000mAh battery, and it charges at 80W wired and 50W wirelessly.

In fact, you’ve been able to pre-order the OnePlus 10 Pro for a while now.

Since we know all the specs of the phone, you might be interested in pre-ordering it now, but we recommend that you wait a bit; We still have no idea how much the phone costs.

Although we’re not expecting it today, we’ve heard rumors of a new member of the OnePlus 10 range coming later this year.

This is the OnePlus 10Ultra about which some leaks: details are scarce, but it seems that it will arrive in late 2022, and possibly with a rear screen as well.

As we said, this will almost definitely not appear today.

We mentioned in the intro of this live blog that the OnePlus 10 is not coming, let’s dig into that.

On MWC 2022, an annual technology fair that took place at the end of February, TechRadar attended a OnePlus briefing where the company confirmed this fact. He told us that the OnePlus 10 series would only have one phone.

That also implies there won’t be a OnePlus 10T, but it could be a case of “us reading between the lines too much”.

It looks like the OnePlus 10 was scrapped so the company could focus more on its mid-range Nord series, so we could see a phone that’s a OnePlus 10 in spirit, but not in name.

on our own OnePlus One Reviewour tester gave the phone four stars out of five, calling it “incredible value for money.”

One of the downsides of the revision is the “non-removable battery” which, several years later, is something you couldn’t imagine. Not because non-removable batteries are gone, but because they’re completely the norm.

While today’s event is mostly about the OnePlus 10 Pro, we think they’ll be talking about the OnePlus One as well.

That Tweet is our main reason for saying that, and the company has similar ads on its website that say the same thing.

This could just be a celebration of ten generations of OnePlus phones, since ten is a nice round number, but it’s not that simple. There was no OnePlus Four, and the OnePlus One is only eight years old.

But ten is a nice round number, as we said. So we will have to wait and see.

Welcome to our OnePlus 10 Pro Live Blog!

There are hours and hours left for the event; it’s later in the day that we usually see Chinese phone companies hosting their launch events, so we can have a nice slow cadence for our posts for a bit.
