OnePlus is now linked to the possibly imminent launch of a premium smartphone called the 10T in 2022; now, according to the latest rumors, there is still scope for a vanilla 10 to emerge alongside it. This device is expected to look much like the existing 10 Pro, albeit without some of the flagship's most defining features.

The OPPO Reno8 series enjoyed a extensive train of attention from leakers prior to its launch, resulting in allegations that one of its members would launch with a design almost exactly like that of the OnePlus 10 Pro, and would accordingly be re-branded later as the vanilla 10 for some markets. However, the 8 Pro in question debuted with a build much more of its own, thus seeming dashing that line of speculation into the ground.

On the other hand, this leaves the rear panel depicted in former "Reno8 Pro" renders free for the actual 10, which is the effective message behind a new leak from the often-accurate leaker Yogesh Brar. The image has cropped up again in a new report from the blog MySmartPrice, exclusively associated with an upcoming OnePlus phone this time.

The render is much the same as before, and suggests the 10 and 10 Pro will have very similar rear camera humps - with some potentially crucial differences. Brar and MySmartPrice claim to have found that it still lacks a Hasselblad logo, despite being a putative part of the OnePlus flagship line-up alongside the also-rumored 10T - which is currently believed to have the branding.

Then again, the alleged 10 camera hump also lacks the Alert Slider that is found within that of the 10 Pro. Therefore, this new leak might back up earlier claims that the OEM will keep the innovative hardware feature for Pro variants only in the future. 

Finally, this new leak may presume to confirm that both the 10 and 10T are on the way: according to another post by Brar, there are 2 distinct new model numbers involved in OnePlus' late-2022 premium-to-mid-range device plans. Of these, the "CPH2413" is thought to be the 10, while the "CPH2455" could be the 10T.
