OnePlus CEO Pete Lau, through a post on Weibo, announced that the company will launch the OnePlus 10 Pro in January 2022. It will be a high-end flagship phone from the Chinese brand, whose specifications surfaced multiple times in the past in the form of leaks and rumours. Though Pete Lau didn’t reveal the exact launch date, several reports believe that the phone could go official on January 5th.
The Weibo post by Pete Lau has no mention of the vanilla OnePlus 10. So, we are not sure if the company will release the phone alongside the Pro model or host a separate launch event. The company has already confirmed that its next flagship series will be equipped with Qualcomm’s most powerful mobile phone chipset, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
Past leaks have revealed how the OnePlus 10 Pro might look like and its specifications, as well. The CAD-based renders suggest that the OnePlus 10 Pro will come with a different design language on the rear side. It could feature a square camera module that extends to the left. Again, the phone is most likely to feature Hasselblad-branded lenses. The camera module is said to include a 48MP primary lens, a 50MP ultrawide lens, and an 8MP sensor with 3x optical zoom. We may see a 32MP selfie camera inside the punch-hole cutout.

The OnePlus phone will reportedly pack a 5,000mAh battery with 80W fast wired charging and 50W wireless charging support.
