A recent patent-based leak has led to rumors that OnePlus will launch an ultra-flagship variant (perhaps literally) with a periscope camera in place of the current 10 Pro's third rear camera and ring-flash. Now, Concept Creator has incorporated this prediction into new images showing how this premium smartphone might look in the real world.

OnePlus has reportedly filed a patent for a device that looks much like the pre-existing 10 Pro flagship, but with a potentially important difference. It replaces the entire 'second row' of components in the phone's rear camera hump with something that, with its long rectangular shape, looks very like a periscope camera. Now, these schematics have become the basis of new renders presented by LetsGoDigital in partnership with their creator.

This designer, Concept Creator, has demonstrated that the rumored "OnePlus 10 Ultra's" long thin zoom lens can blend surprisingly well into the 10 Pro's current, possibly Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra-inspired, rear camera housing. According to the new renders, it could easily fit into the space taken up by 1 of the actual flagship's 3 round lenses, along with the ring-flash of equal size normally found next to it.

Concept Creator also imagines that the zoom module could be defined by a simple "5X Zoom" legend; then again, OnePlus has decided to adorn its new round flash with the more cryptic epithet "P2D50T", a code said to represent the fact that the 10 Pro is its brand's 2nd-gen Hasselblad-tuned 50MP main camera flagship.

On that note, the "10 Ultra" does of course retain this branding down 1 side of its modified camera hump, which relegates the flash to a much more conventional strip found opposite this feature. The rest of the putative late-year flagship refresh has 1 other potentially crucial difference: a flat display rather than the 10 Pro's curved panel.

Imagining for a second that it retains all the rest of that device's AMOLED display specs, which include cutting-edge LTPO 2.0 technology and a QHD+ resolution, it might appeal to screen-junkies as much as to mobile photography enthusiasts - the 10 Ultra is even touted to pack a MariSilicon co-processor from the brand's owner OPPO.

On the other hand, these exciting new renders, convincing though they are with Easter eggs such as the 10 Pro's very own Volcanic Black colorway, have no guarantee of panning out into a real-life phone at this point.
