OnePlus 10 Pro leak reveals 125W fast charging, 50MP and 48MP rear cameras

The OnePlus 10 Pro is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2021, initially in China ahead of global availability. We’re clearly not far from the release because OnePlus 10 Pro renders have already given us our first look at the next flagship, and now almost all of the specs have leaked online.

The latest development comes from Steve Hemmerstoffer, aka OnLeaks, who has partnered with 91Mobiles to reveal the expected details about the OnePlus 10 Pro. The smartphone is rumored to feature a 6.7-inch Quad HD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. If you look closely at the renders, it seems like the device will have curved edges, which makes sense since the OnePlus 10 Pro is likely to borrow design elements from the Galaxy S21 Ultra, with the camera module melding into the right edge.

The alert slider and power button lie on the right edge, while the volume rocker could still be on the left. There is no room for the headphone jack, but it will have a USB-C port, SIM tray, and speaker grille placed at the bottom.

The OnePlus 10 Pro will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, which is expected to become official by the end of this month and follow the new naming convention. It will be the flagship system on a chip that is likely to be found on most of the high-end 2022 Android smartphones. As for configuration, the next OnePlus flagship is expected to come in 8GB/128GB LPDDR5 RAM and 12GB/256GB UFS 3.1 storage options. According to the leak, it will pack a 5,000mAh battery that will have support for 125-watt wired fast charging — up from 65W on the OnePlus 9 Pro.

On the optics front, the OnePlus 10 Pro is expected to sport a triple rear camera setup. It could be led by a 48-megapixel primary sensor and be accompanied by a 50MP ultrawide-angle lens and an 8MP telephoto lens with 3.3x zoom. It may also feature a 32MP selfie shooter. It will be rated IP68 for water resistance.

This is a fairly comprehensive set of leaks, and it looks like the OnePlus 10 Pro will be on par with most upcoming flagships, including the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.

The OnePlus 10T is the right OnePlus phone at the wrong time
Back of the OnePlus 10T.

The OnePlus 10T is an oddly positioned smartphone, to say the least. It contradicts OnePlus' recent stride toward premium offerings with devices such as the OnePlus 9 Pro and the OnePlus 10 Pro. Instead, it appears to shoulder the same "never settle" spirit that OnePlus was once famous for, being geared toward users who demand unbeatable performance but who can compromise on the cosmetic or camera fronts.

While the OnePlus 10T offers top-of-the-line specifications, the 10T also accommodates some compromises for a more reasonable price. These shortcomings deflect it to the class of flagship killers, below the true flagships, which recent OnePlus numeric series phones have tended toward. All these changes stir up a sense that the company is trying to break through the image it has created in the last few years, especially since its readmission into camp Oppo.

How to pre-order the OnePlus 10T
Holding the OnePlus 10T in front of a green plant.

The OnePlus 10T, OnePlus' performance flagship for 2022, is here. Following weeks of endless leaks and rumors, OnePlus formally announced the phone on August 3. It did so in big fashion, hosting an extravagant launch event in New York City -- OnePlus's first in-person gathering in over two years. The big change this year, of course, is support for AT&T's 5G networks, which has now been turned on. You can't buy your OnePlus 10T directly from AT&T, but if you're looking to put your existing SIM in your new phone, rest assured that it'll work.

But while the OnePlus 10T was unveiled at the start of August, pre-orders didn't open until September 1. So that meant you had to wait. Thankfully, that waiting period is now over. Unfortunately, it does mean the start of a whole new waiting period since the phone won't be finally available until September 29. OnePlus is really making us wait for this phone, so just try not to get impatient.

OnePlus 10T pre-orders go live in the U.S., and with a big 5G fix
Back of the OnePlus 10T.

Hot off the heels of its Asian and European launches, the OnePlus 10T is finally coming to North America, and with one major upgrade: 5G support with AT&T. For the first time on a OnePlus device, the OnePlus 10T will be fully compatible with AT&T 5G and 4G LTE networks, compared to previous handsets that only had LTE support on AT&T.

While the specs of OnePlus devices have always been impressive, especially so with the 10T, their recent reliance on LTE and other slower connections for AT&T customers has made them somewhat difficult to recommend. Now that users are able to make the most of 5G internet speeds, however, the 10T is more enticing than before.
