The standard OnePlus 10 does exist and will arrive with some pretty impressive specs, some of which will even give it an edge over the Pro model. There had been some debate as to whether the company would release a standard OnePlus 10, considering the OnePlus 10 Pro launched on its own and the manufacturer has had little to say on the matter since. However, that debate can apparently be put to rest now.

OnePlus changed its product release strategy this year by launching the OnePlus 10 Pro first. It has also confirmed that a second phone in the series, launching as the OnePlus 10R, will arrive at the end of April 2022. This change in product release is different from 2021 when the company launched the OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro, and the OnePlus 9R at the same time.

Confirmation of the existence of the OnePlus 10 comes from Steve Hemmerstoffer (aka @OnLeaks) who disclosed the specs of the phone in an exclusive Digit post. According to the information, the OnePlus 10 will arrive later this year and as a true successor to the OnePlus 9. Just like its predecessor, it will be a flagship device with specs deserving of a 2022 smartphone. However, there is no timeframe or specific date on when it will become available.

Faster Charging Than The OnePlus 10 Pro

There are several key upgrades that the OnePlus 10 will bring. Its display is reportedly larger at 6.7 inches and the AMOLED panel is the LTPO 2.0 type that can adjust the refresh rate between 1Hz and 120Hz based on the content on the screen. However, the resolution remains unchanged at 1080p. Performance is also getting a significant boost as the OnePlus 10 is expected to come with either the yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ or the Dimensity 9000. The former is a more powerful version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 inside the OnePlus 10 Pro while the latter has shown to be better than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in some areas.

OnePlus also appears to be finally dropping the 16MP front-facing camera in favor of a higher resolution 32MP sensor. There will be three cameras on the back consisting of a 50MP main sensor, 16MP ultrawide angle camera, and a 2MP macro camera. That is somewhat of a letdown considering the OnePlus 9 has a 50MP ultrawide angle camera. OnePlus has also decided against including a telephoto camera once again. Nevertheless, it is expected that the phone will carry Hasselblad’s branding. Another area that may prove disappointing to some is that the phone may not have an Alert Slider. This is the physical mute switch found on the side of several OnePlus flagships.

The OnePlus 10 is getting a battery boost, however. Its battery capacity is rated at 4800mAh and it will support 150W fast charging. In contrast, the OnePlus 10 Pro supports 80W fast charging (65W fast charging with the U.S. version). OnePlus has yet to follow Apple‘s footsteps by removing the power adapter from the box, so it is expected that the standard OnePlus phone will ship with a charger. Lastly, the OnePlus 10 will run Android 12 with OxygenOS on top, and will be available in 8GB and 12GB RAM versions with 128GB or 256GB of storage.
