OnePlus unveils a new "Extreme Edition" of the 10 Pro in China
The OnePlus 10 Pro has just become conspicuous by its failure to withstand an almost inevitable test of its durability. However, the 2022 flagship smartphone may be looking better to some consumers in its freshly-released new colorway.
This new style, dubbed the "OnePlus 10 Pro Extreme Edition", is presented in a new finish that emphasizes its large Hasselblad-branded camera hump as never before. The probably Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra-inspired housing was capable of blending in much better into its original Volcanic Black and Emerald Forest shades; however, it has no choice but to stand out against the new White rear panel.
OnePlus has posted a quite verbose preview for this new finish and the CMF techniques behind it, which has ultimately resulted in a finish touted as increasingly fingerprint-resistant compared to the average white smartphone, while being much more consistent in appearance from various viewing angles.
Otherwise, the "Extreme Edition" seems to offer the same specs as any other 12GB RAM 10 Pro SKU. However, while those pre-existing options top out at 256GB of internal storage and go for 5,299 yuan (~US$836), its white counterpart has been upgraded to half a gigabyte of total space. It is available to buy from Opposhop.com.cn for 5,799 yuan (~$916).
This is far from the first white version OnePlus has released as a special-edition flagship smartphone. However, they have a poor record of launching outside of China without issues. Perhaps the 10 Pro Extreme Edition will have a better chance on the international market should it make it there, along with its normal siblings, soon.
