A OnePlus 10 with insane charging speeds might be on the way

OnePlus will be launching a OnePlus 10 after all, just a month out from the debut of the OnePlus 10 Pro as a stand-alone flagship, according to a new report. While the company in the past has debuted both phones side by side, it opted against doing so this year, giving the impression that we wouldn’t be seeing a OnePlus 10. However, considering the new OnePlus isn’t quite the picture of restraint, a OnePlus 10 release was more likely than not.

According to a report from Digit in collaboration with trusted leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer, known as OnLeaks, the OnePlus 10 will have two separate variants depending on the system on a chip (SoC). The smartphone is said to be powered either by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip or a MediaTek Dimensity 9000 SoC, likely depending on the region. It seems like OnePlus is in the early stages of testing the OnePlus 10 and it hasn’t locked the exact variant that will be mass-produced.

Surprisingly, the OnePlus 10 is said to have support for faster charging speeds than the OnePlus 10 Pro. The vanilla variant could get 150-watt fast charging to quickly fill up its 4,800mAh cell — the same as the OnePlus Ace (OnePlus 10R) launched in China recently. In contrast, the OnePlus 10 Pro comes with support for 80W fast charging, which is limited to 65W in the U.S.

As per the report, the OnePlus 10 will feature a 6.7-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with support for a 120Hz refresh rate. It could be paired with 8GB or 12GB of RAM and come in two storage variants of 120GB and 256GB. It is likely to run the latest version of OxygenOS 12 based on Android 12.

As far as optics, the OnePlus 10 is said to sport a triple rear camera setup led by a 50-megapixel primary camera. It could have a 16MP ultrawide camera and a 2MP macro lens. On the front is to be a 32MP selfie shooter. It is likely to miss out on optical image stabilization, but will keep the same Hasselblad color calibration the company touts on its flagships.

For the first time since its inception, OnePlus is said to be dropping the iconic alert slider from its flagship with the OnePlus 10. It already did so on the Nord series, but we’re sad to see it go here too.

The OnePlus 11 Concept steals the Nothing Phone’s best trick
OnePlus shows off a OnePlus 11 with rear LED lighting.

OnePlus has teased a new special concept phone based on the OnePlus 11. The Oppo subbrand highlighted a slew of LEDs around the back of the phone as a standout feature. The LEDs were reminiscent of the approach used by Nothing, another phone brand built by former OnePlus CEO Pete Lau.

The company sent out a teaser of its concept phone showing off what appeared to be LED lightning around the back in a very striking image. “The images show the engineering breakthroughs of the OnePlus 11 Concept by highlighting the icy blue pipelines which run through the entire back of the phone, almost like OnePlus 11 Concept has its own series of blood vessels. OnePlus 11 Concept’s pipelines are housed inside a bold and futuristic unibody glass design inspired by the calm stillness and vast power of a glacial lake,” OnePlus said, as reported by The Verge.

How I learned to love the OnePlus 11’s controversial software
The OnePlus 11's screen.

When I picked up the OnePlus 10 Pro, I missed the old OxygenOS immediately. Gone was the fluid and feature-light software that made OnePlus phones such a great experience, replaced by the heavy, slower, and more annoying ColorOS-inspired software few liked as much. I liked it even less on the OnePlus 10T, and I wasn’t the only one.

I really like the OnePlus 11, but I wasn’t expecting to like OxygenOS 13 much. My early impression of ColorOS 13 was good, but I didn’t trust the newly Oppo-ified OnePlus enough to think it would carry over. But after using, and loving, the OnePlus 11 for several weeks, I no longer feel any animosity towards OxygenOS. Have I simply become used to it, or has the software actually got better?
What’s the problem with OxygenOS?
