OnePlus 10 Pro could still run OxygenOS 12 outside of China

Soon after confirming its integration with Oppo in late 2021, OnePlus announced that its 2022 flagship phone would be the first to run a new unified OS. For those who aren’t aware, the company is merging OxygenOS with Oppo’s ColorOS. The OnePlus 10 Pro in China already runs ColorOS 12.1. However, it looks like the global variant of the device will still feature the latest version of the beloved OxygenOS.

According to a report from 91Mobiles, tipster Yogesh Brar, the launch of the unified OS has been delayed. As a result, the OnePlus 10 Pro could run OxygenOS 12 outside of China. While this might come as good news for OnePlus fans, it also means that the launch of the upcoming OS has been delayed, so the phone won’t get a unified OS until a future update at an unspecified date.

Speaking with Digital Trends, Pete Lau, Oppo’s chief product officer and OnePlus co-founder, justified the unification of the operating systems by saying that the approach would be efficient and effective for the upcoming product portfolio. However, if the new report is to be believed, the unified OS is very much still under development. The upcoming OS is touted to be fast, smooth, reliable, feature-rich, and lightweight. OnePlus has also committed to providing at least three major Android updates and four years of security patches with the new unified version of the OS.

OnePlus 10 Pro’s global launch still pending

The OnePlus 10 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, paired with up to 12GB of RAM. It gets up to 256GB internal storage using UFS 3.1 for improved speed. The smartphone features a 6.7-inch display with a QHD+ resolution. Like its predecessor, the OnePlus 9 Pro, it has a dynamic refresh rate that operates between 1Hz and 120Hz for improved power efficiency.

The OnePlus 10 Pro packs a 5,000mAh battery with 80-watt SuperVOOC fast charging and 50W AirVOOC fast wireless charging. The claimed figures include the phone reaching 100% in just 32 minutes over wired charging. As for the optics, the smartphone sports a triple rear camera setup. There is a 48-megapixel primary sensor, which is accompanied by a 50MP ultrawide-angle lens, and an 8MP telephoto lens with 3.3x zoom.

The OnePlus 10 Pro is expected to launch globally sometime around March. However, there is still no confirmation on the launch timeline.

Yes, we really are completely spoiling the OnePlus 11 and Buds Pro 2 launch
The OnePlus 11 and the OnePlus Buds Pro 2.

Do you think you know all about the OnePlus 11? What about the OnePlus Buds Pro 2? It’s probably fair if you do consider yourself well-informed about them both. After all the leaks and OnePlus’s decision to launch the phone and earbuds in China during CES 2023, there’s a good chance you feel pretty clued up on the next big things from OnePlus.

While you may have had a glance at them already, and know the new phone will use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, plus have seen the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 will have Spatial Audio support, have you had a really good close look at the products? No, probably not. But we have, and in the interests of making the launch event almost entirely superfluous, we’re going to show both products off more right now.

Using the OnePlus 10 Pro again made me worried about the OnePlus 11
Holding The OnePlus 10 Pro.

It's hard to believe, but we're quickly inching toward the OnePlus 11. The phone is already available if you live in China, but for the rest of the world, we only have to wait until February 7 for OnePlus to host its big 'Cloud 11' launch event in India.

In anticipation of the OnePlus 11, I decided to bust out my OnePlus 10 Pro and see how it's holding up in early 2023. In short, there are a lot of things I still love about the phone, and it's admirable how great it feels a year later. But even more than that, using the OnePlus 10 Pro in 2023 reminded me of how some key things have changed. As a result, I'm more nervous than excited about what we'll get with the OnePlus 11. Let me explain.

OnePlus is planning on starting the new year off with a bang by revealing the much-anticipated OnePlus 11. Launching on February 7 during the company's annual first-quarter showcase, the OnePlus 11 boasts the return of two user-favorite features: the company's signature alert slider and Hasselblad photography integration — both of which were absent on the OnePlus 10T.

Although OnePlus is still keeping most of the official details about the OnePlus 11 under wraps until February, there have been plenty of leaks and rumors surrounding the phone — and they've painted it as a worthy successor to the OnePlus 10T, the company's most recent flagship.
