New OnePlus 10 Pro leak touts specific camera improvement over the OnePlus 9 Pro
OnePlus has no plans to launch a OnePlus 9T or 9T Pro this year. While the company is still expected to release the OnePlus 9RT, that phone isn't an actual flagship phone and OnePlus' next proper flagships will be the OnePlus 10 series.
A new leak has now revealed some information about the OnePlus 10 series. The OnePlus 10 Pro, in particular. Supposedly, the OnePlus 10 Pro will offer better zoom capabilities than its predecessor, the OnePlus 9 Pro.
According to leaker Bald Panda, the OnePlus 10 Pro will deliver 5x optical zoom, finally catching to its Chinese rivals. Phones like the Huawei P30 Pro, Mi 10 Ultra, and Vivo X60 Pro+ have all offered 5x optical zoom. The OnePlus 9 Pro, however, was limited to 3.3x optical zoom. That will change with the OnePlus 10 Pro, thankfully.
While better zoom is a welcome improvement, OnePlus fans are more likely concerned about the camera quality of the main lens. The OnePlus 9 Pro, for example, was heavily marketed for its use of Hasselblad technology but that doesn't seem to have helped to bridge the gap between it and flagships like the Galaxy S21 and iPhone 12 series.
