150-degree wide-angle lens tops OnePlus 10 Pro’s camera specs

OnePlus has talked more about the camera on the forthcoming OnePlus 10 Pro, in the latest news release about the phone to come from CES 2022. The OnePlus 10 Pro has been officially announced, we know what it looks like, and we know the basic specification, but now we’re getting some finer details about the camera on the back of the phone along with some sample images too.

Top of the list is the announcement the phone’s wide-angle camera will have a maximum 150-degree field of view, wider than the majority of the competition, which usually maxes out at around 120-degrees. It will also have a fish-eye camera mode to recreate the unusual ultra-wide-angle photos taken by dedicated fish-eye cameras.

It sounds exciting and up until recently, the 150-degree wide-angle view and fish-eye mode would have been a first on smartphones, except Realme has beaten OnePlus to it with the Realme GT 2 Pro, which also has a 150-degree wide-angle camera and fish-eye mode. Coincidence? No. Realme is part of the BBK Electronics empire along with Oppo, Vivo, and, you’ve guessed it, OnePlus.

What else? The OnePlus 10 Pro’s camera will shoot photos in 10-bit color using a feature called OnePlus Billion Color Solution. It works alongside partner Hasselblad’s Natural Color Calibration software tweaks to deliver a smooth transition between colors for a more natural look. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a 10-bit color camera either, as it was a feature on the Oppo Find X3 Pro. To fully appreciate 10-bit color images, you need to see them on a 10-bit color screen, but we don’t have the final screen specs for the OnePlus 10 Pro’s screen to know if it has this ability yet.

We’ve been looking forward to more news on how OnePlus has worked with Hasselblad on the OnePlus 10 Pro’s camera, and we now know it will feature the second-generation Hasselblad Pro Mode, available on all three of the phone’s cameras. This introduces a RAW+ shooting mode which adds computational photography elements to a normal RAW video for higher dynamic range and greater noise reduction. Unfortunately, it does not appear Hasselblad has worked on the OnePlus 10 Pro’s camera hardware.

Finally, also in the camera’s pro mode, is Move Mode. This adds control over the ISO and shutter speed when shooting video, and the ability to record in LOG format without any picture enhancements. It’s best suited to those who want greater freedom over the look of the video in editing.

The OnePlus 10 Pro will launch in China on January 11, with the U.S., European, and Indian launch coming later in 2022.

OnePlus 11’s controversial design returns in new ‘official’ renders
Renders of the OnePlus 11 in black and green.

The OnePlus 11 Pro was slated to be the next OnePlus flagship for early 2023. However, as per a new report from Gadget Gang (in association with reliable tipster @OnLeaks), the leaked OnePlus 11 Pro in the past is in fact, the OnePlus 11, which will be the flagship for early 2023. Apart from that, we also have our first look at the 'official' renders of the next OnePlus flagship. It looks like the company is iterating the design from its 2022 designs, with controversial results.

According to the latest renders, OnePlus is taking inspiration from Samsung of 2021 by extending the camera module to the side of the OnePlus 11. The new design is likely to stir some debate around the looks of the device. Meanwhile, the Hasselblad logo is now in the middle of the camera module, which looks odd. The optics include a three-lens camera system accompanied by an LED flash. The OnePlus 11 is said to be made available in Forest Emerald and Volcanic Black color options. As per the renders, the back seems to have a matte finish.

The OnePlus 10T and Google Pixel 7's camera modules.

The OnePlus 10T is a strange phone, and I didn’t really take to it when I first reviewed it at the end of September. As I prepared to revisit the 10T to see if time had been kind to it, I had to swap my SIM card from a phone that’s going to cause the OnePlus phone more problems: The Google Pixel 7.

After using them sid by side for a day, the question becomes is there anything about the OnePlus 10T that should convince you to buy it over the Pixel 7?
