The OnePlus 10 Pro was revealed in January, which is far early than the company’s past flagship announcements. The business made sure the phone was kept under wraps, only exposing it in public on rare occasions. The business provided us some hands-on experience with its new elusive Pro flagship flagship at Mobile World Congress 2022. For better or worse, it still looks and feels like a OnePlus flagship.
The OnePlus 10 Pro is now available in the United States, and it’s exactly as excellent as the China-only variant. The difference is in the software, with the Chinese version running Oppo’s Color OS and the rest of the globe having Oxygen OS 12.1 based on Android 12. We’ll get to it in a minute.
The OnePlus 10 Pro’s cameras are a true head-scratcher. The monochrome sensor is no longer available, and the ultrawide sensor is a lesser version than the one found on the 9 Pro. The business did not clarify whether Oxygen OS 12.1 will remedy the problem. Overall, though, I was underwhelmed with the camera throughout my little experience with it.
The OnePlus 10 Pro does not appear to be a big increase over the OnePlus 9 Pro. For OnePlus, it’s not making a major difference, and standing out from the crowd requires more than a unique camera module. It’s less of a disruptor and more of an afterthought now that the firm has merged with Oppo. This phone might be fantastic if Oxygen OS 12.1 addresses all of the difficulties that consumers had with OxygenOS 12 and the business improves its ultrawide configuration significantly. But, until then, I’d advise you to hold off till the phone’s final version is out.
