Realme has crammed a number of series firsts into the new 10 Pro Plus (or 10 Pro+), including the switch to a curved display at its market tier, which, as the OEM asserts, can help it challenge devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra in certain ways. It is also the first Pro+ model to launch with the latest Realme UI 4.0 based on Android 13 out of the box and new fast charging tech.

The Realme 10 Pro+ has launched with the same color options (and 16MP selfie camera) as its new Pro counterpart; however, one will not be mistaken for the other thanks to the higher-end Plus model's new curved display.

This 120Hz FHD+ punchhole screen is made of OLED and measures 6.7 inches diagonally - like that of the 9 Pro+. However, Realme asserts that it is optimized even beyond its "golden" curvature with "PWM dimming" set at an apparently class-topping 2160Hz.

The "high-frequency" spec is touted to protect a 10 Pro+ user's eye health and not much else - it might prove fun to test in any case. Realme also claims to have shaved the smartphone's bezels down as much as possible in the 9 Pro+ successor's newly curved display, to yield a screen-to-body ratio of 93.65% and a 'chin' of 2.33 millimeters (mm) in height: less than that of a Galaxy S22 Ultra.

The display is driven by the "high-performance" MediaTek Dimensity 1080 SoC - another Realme first - which runs the long-awaited upgrade to Android 13. The 10 Pro+ has its line's new signature camera hump, and, like the 10 Pro, has a 108MP main sensor in the top 'ring'. 

However, it crams 2 lenses (an 8MP ultra-wide-angle and a 2MP macro) into the bottom circle, where the Pro has just 1 (2MP). The 10 Pro and Pro+ also have the same battery capacity - however, the latter upgrades to a 67-watt (W) standard, cryptically dubbed "Smart Flash Charge" for the first time rather than Realme's habitual Dart Charge branding (UFCS?).

Realme has also thrown in a new power brick for this new standard in with every 10 Pro+ shipped. On that note, it has a 8GB RAM/128GB base model now priced at 1,699 yuan (~US$237) on its new pre-order page. Alternatively, there are 256GB storage SKUs with 8 or 12GB of RAM for 1,999 to 2,399 yuan (~US$279-335).
