Early OnePlus 10 Pro renders reveal Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra-inspired camera bump

Popular tech leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer, who goes by @Onleaks on Twitter earlier today, posted the first-ever renders of the OnePlus 10 Pro. The renders, which appeared on e-commerce platform Zouton.com, reveal a triple camera array housed within a redesigned camera bump. If that camera bump looks somewhat familiar to you, it is probably because it seems to be heavily inspired by the one we all saw on the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.

As evident in the image below, the OnePlus 10 Pro’s camera bump seems to extend from the phone’s metal frame. Unlike the S21 Ultra, however, this bump doesn’t extend all the way to the top of the phone’s rear panel. Also noticeable is the fact that the OnePlus 10 Pro — at least in this version — will feature a triple-camera setup.

It is important to note that the current OnePlus flagship, the OnePlus 9 Pro, features a quad-camera array at the rear that consists of a 48-megapixel primary camera, a 50MP ultrawide camera, an 8MP telephoto camera, and a 2MP monochrome camera. If the freshly leaked renders end up being true, it could mean that OnePlus may decide against including a monochrome camera on the 10 Pro.

Zoutons, in their blog post, also makes several claims about the hardware specifications of the OnePlus 10 Pro. Most of these, however, seem to be calculated guesses, since Steve himself has stopped short of revealing key hardware specs of the phone.

While Steve has mostly been correct with his predictions, he does make it clear that these renders were based on real-life pictures of an early prototype. Since OnePlus is known to try out several prototypes before homing in on a final design, there is a good chance that the OnePlus 10 Pro that finally launches in the first quarter of 2022 could be an utterly different-looking phone.

5 phones you should buy instead of the Samsung Galaxy S24

In the market for a new phone? You might be considering the latest offering from Samsung, which includes the Galaxy S24. It’s the entry level model for the S24 lineup, but still packs great performance and power with Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip and 8GB RAM, a beautiful LTPO AMOLED display with up to 120Hz refresh rate and 2,600 nits peak brightness. And even though it’s a base model, you get a triple lens camera system.

But the Galaxy S24 isn’t the only option you have out there. Here are five great alternatives to consider if you’re thinking about the S24.

Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro Max is one of the top choices for a premium smartphone. It offers the latest and greatest from Apple, including the new A17 Pro chip, a fantastic camera system, a lightweight titanium body, the Action button, and USB-C charging. It's a great package.

But there’s no doubt about it — the iPhone 15 Pro Max is also quite expensive, with a starting price of $1,200. It’s also not the only option out there if you want the best smartphone on the market, especially if you aren’t particularly invested in the Apple ecosystem.

Is the Google Pixel 8 Pro an excellent smartphone? Absolutely! It's quite possibly the best smartphone Google has ever made, and we weren't shy about heaping praise on it in our Google Pixel 8 Pro review. While its battery life isn't anything to write home about, and the temperature sensor is a bit of a whiff, the sheer quality of the camera, gorgeous design, strong specs, and promise of seven years of updates mean it's not a phone to miss out on.

But while the Pixel 8 Pro is a very strong smartphone, it's far from the only choice. In fact, if you're looking at the Pixel 8 Pro right now, there are five other smartphones you should consider buying instead of Google's most expensive flagship.
