The OnePlus 10 Pro has been officially launched in China with a 6.7-inch 120HZ AMOLED screen, three rear Hasselblad-branded cameras, a 5,000mAh battery that supports 80W fast charging, and more. Prices start at RMB 4699 (US$740) for the base variant, and a global launch is expected to follow suit soon.

OnePlus endlessly teased the OnePlus 10 Pro over the past few weeks, and the company went as far as to reveal most of the phone's spec sheet to counter the torrent of leaks that preceded today's (Jan 11, 2021) launch event. It has now officially lifted the covers off the OnePlus 10 Pro, but only for China. We may have to wait a few weeks for a global launch if a report from earlier is accurate.

We already know about the OnePlus 10 Pro's innards, so let's start with the camera department instead. We get three camera sensors at the back: a 48MP Sony IMX789 sensor that has apparently been customized by OnePlus, a 50MP ultra-wide-angle lens with a 150-degree field of view, and an 8MP telephoto lens that offers 3x optical zoom and is optically stabilized. A 32MP sensor at the front handles selfies and video calls, and video recording modes are capped at 4K 120 FPS or 8K 30 FPS.

OnePlus' collaboration with camera maker Hasselblad continues with the OnePlus 10 Pro. The phone's camera cutout has prominent Hasselblad branding. The company has also worked with professionals to fine-tune the camera app this time around. The camera's Pro mode lets users capture content in 12-bit RAW across all three sensors. A new mode called RAW+ allows users to take photos in 12-bit RAW and retain all of the computational photography elements from OnePlus. Similarly, all three lenses can capture images with 10-bit colour.

Moving on, the OnePlus 10 Pro runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC coupled with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of two-lane UFS 3.1 storage. A 5,000mAh battery powers the smartphone, which can be charged at 80W over a wire and 50W wirelessly. Both modes require proprietary hardware, though, and OnePlus claims that it will take only 32 minutes to fully charge the phone's battery.

Lastly, the OnePluys 10 Pro packs a 6.7-inch QHD+ LTPO 2.0 AMOLED screen that dynamically adjusts its refresh rate between 1Hz and 120Hz. OnePlus has also used what it calls "dual calibration" tech to ensure that the display remains colour-accurate in bright and dim settings. Other OnePlus 10 Pro features include a "Hyperboost" mode that helps enhance the phone's gaming prowess. Wireless connectivity options include Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, 5G and NFC. The lack of Wi-Fi 6E is a bit surprising, given that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset supports it.

The OnePlus 10 Pro is available in two colourways, Volcanic Black and Emerald Forest. Prices in China start at RMB 4699 (US$740) for the base variant (8GB RAM, 128GB storage) and max out at RMB 5299 (US$830) for the top-specced version with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage.
