We more or less knew everything about the OnePlus 10 Pro following its China launch, but now we know it’ll be coming to the U.S., the U.K., parts of Europe, and India.

“We’re incredibly excited to bring the OnePlus 10 Pro to India, Europe, and North America alongside the OnePlus Buds Pro in Radiant Silver,” said Pete Lau, founder of OnePlus, in a press release. “With the second-generation Hasselblad Camera for mobile, super-fast charging, and the best performance in any OnePlus smartphone to date, we believe the OnePlus 10 Pro is a well-rounded flagship that is extremely competitive at its price point.”

Like all Android phones wearing a “Pro” suffix in 2022, there is a 6.7-inch QHD AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. There’s also a massive 5,000mAh battery with fast charging, and Android 12 paired with OxygenOS 12.1 is along for the ride as well. It’s powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, and it touts a triple rear camera layout that is the star of the show.

As with the OnePlus 9 Pro, this delightful camera is tuned by camera company Hasselblad, and there’s a 48-megapixel main camera, a 50 ultrawide camera, and an 8MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom. Around the front, the OnePlus has a 32MP camera for selfies and video calling. For superfans, OnePlus is also offering a free pair of OnePlus Buds Pro to those who pre-order.

The OnePlus 10 Pro will come in two variants, with an 8GB of RAM paired with 128GB of storage base model in Volcanic Black only for 800 British pounds or 900 euros, and a model with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage in both Volcanic Black and Emerald Forest for 900 pounds or 1,000 euros.

In the U.S., the OnePlus 10 Pro will be available in both Volcanic Blank and Emerald Green in the 8GB/128GB configuration. Colorways will vary by outlet.

If you’re interested in placing an order, OnePlus says the phone will be immediately available for order on Amazon as well as OnePlus’s site. You’ll be able to buy it from  T-Mobile in Volcanic Black from $37.50 a month or for free with eligible trade-ins on the Magenta Max plan. In the U.K., OnePlus will also be available from John Lewis, with pre-orders opening on April 5, 2022.

In the U.S., you’ll be able to pre-order the OnePlus 10 Pro for $899 starting on March 31 from Sales will begin online and in-store at T-Mobile, Best Buy, and Amazon on April 14.

OnePlus also announced a new colorway for the OnePlus Buds Pro, making it available in Radiant Silver. It will be priced at 150 pounds, 140 euros, and $150.

OnePlus has seen a transition from a niche enthusiast company to a somewhat mainstream smartphone brand over the years, but jettisoning some of the aspects that brought it cult fame has led to backlash. The company had revised its OxygenOS software to look a lot more like ColorOS, a version of Android that differs from what you’d expect from Google or Samsung and veers more toward (predictably) Oppo. OnePlus has recognized its mistake and hopes to rectify it with Android 13, but it just goes to show the company isn’t the cult darling it once was.

The OnePlus 12 is the newest phone from OnePlus — and one of the best new phones of 2024. It features a 6.82-inch 2K (QHD+) AMOLED display that uses LTPO technology. It also has a triple-lens rear camera system comprising a 50MP primary sensor, a 48MP ultrawide sensor, and a 64MP telephoto sensor with 3x optical zoom. Additionally, it's powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset and has up to 16GB of memory and other exciting features. It's a packed spec list, to say the least.

However, there's one thing we haven't addressed yet: Does the OnePlus 12 have a curved screen? And if so, is it a problem you should worry about? Here's what you need to know.

This new Android phone is one of the most stunning I’ve ever seen
OnePlus 12R Genshin Impact Edition.

One of the problems I have with smartphone design these days is that most phones are boring. We have the same old glass slab phones in muted, boring colors that aren’t fun. They get the job done, but that's about it. And I’m tired of that! I want something cool and exciting in terms of phone design.

OnePlus revealed a new Genshin Impact Edition of its OnePlus 12R phone during Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2024. Though I’m not a huge Genshin Impact fan, this is one of the prettiest collaborations I’ve seen in a long time. It’s a breath of fresh air in a stale market, and I want to see more of this.
Striking and elegantly designed hardware
