OnePlus is looking to get a headstart on the competition this year, dropping an official teaser image for its forthcoming flagship, the OnePlus 10 Pro, just a couple of days ahead of its CES 2022 reveal.
The Shenzhen-based firm shared a first look at the new smartphone, which will once again carry Hasselblad-branded cameras. And going by the teaser, the flagship looks to benefit from a new design, underlined by a square rear camera array and a two-toned matte finish for the back. From what we can see, it’s quite a departure from the OnePlus 9 Pro, which has a side-leaning rectangular camera array and glossier finish.
Not much else is known about the new smartphone yet, but the teaser clearly shows that it comes equipped with a triple rear camera setup. What’s puzzling, however, is that there’s a fourth hole in the array labelled "P2D 50T". We’re not sure what it’s for yet, but if we were to guess, this is probably a new autofocus system to go with the other cameras. It could also be another sensor. Either way, we’ll have to wait until the launch event to find out more.
While the image doesn’t show the 10 Pro’s front, recent leaks suggest that we can expect to see a sizable 6.7-inch display with high refresh rates. Also, the lack of a side-mounted or rear fingerprint scanner hints that the device will come with an under-display scanner. And this being a flagship release, we can expect it to ship with Qualcomm’s latest chipset, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
OnePlus is reportedly planning to fully unveil the phone at CES 2022 this week, with a release in China set for Tuesday, 11 January. As for Singapore, we’ll likely have to wait a bit later.
