But we can also say: it turned out a few things that weren’t obvious so far.
OnePlus also starts the year early, but it’s worth noting that 10 Pro for the time being, it has received as much of a Chinese premiere, with a later Western start, as Xiaomi or Realme’s latest offering, and nothing is known about the relevant appearance or prices at home yet.
The premiere is quoted anyway, as OnePlus has shown and revealed almost all the parameters of its top mobile, but it’s worth it. Being a Pro mobile, the fresh Never Settle offers a sizable 6.7 “QHD + panel with 120 Hz adaptive image refresh, LTPO AMOLED technology and serious calibration efforts for perfect colors.
The use of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 hardware has been promised well in advance, and no wonder 12GB of LPDD5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage fit in with no expansion. The good news is the interface based on Android 12 is true: ColorOS 12.1 is already running on it in China, but the essentially identical UI will be called OxygenOS 12 here and will retain a few OnePlus characters.
We’ll be curious to consume the 4nm Qualcomm chip, but the 5,000mAh battery with 32 minutes of charging with the 80-watt adapter or 47 minutes of feeding on the 50-watt wireless charger sounds compelling – the former is obviously included in the package.
The camera part is self-repeating, since we have already shown some examples here the system set up by Hasselblad. This time, the most interesting is the 50-megapixel ultra-wide camera with a 150-degree viewing angle, enclosing much more space than its predecessor (left), and this is also exploited by fisheye mode. However, you can also request a narrower angle shot with distortion correction.
The main unit is 48 megapixels and can save 12-bit RAW + files for advanced manual processing as well as other back-panel units, and the manufacturer offers outstanding color management and 10-bit HEIF backup.
The focus is also more on video – for example, professional mode is also available with all three cameras, HDR and LOG format saving. The third viewing angle at the rear is represented by an 8-megapixel zoom camera with 3.3x optical zoom.
It became quite interesting on the camera side anyway, and then I’m a bit permissive with the markers now, otherwise the emerald green and dark gray look and fit is fine. The phone will hit shelves in China on January 13th – with the price coming soon, with international information later.
