Earlier this month we shared a render leak of the OnePlus 10 Pro which showed a substantial square camera block on the back of the 5G phone – not dissimilar from the Samsung S21 Ultra design and now we have a leaked aluminium dummy unit, to provide further insight. The new leak is comes from leaker @xleaks7 (opens in new tab), in partnership with Fathom Bracelets (opens in new tab), and the first thing we’re struck by is the size – it’s a big one.

Huge 5G phone
As well as the OnePlus 10 Pro looking large in the hand, the camera lenses and their housing also look huge. The leaker claims that there are four lenses, with the flash being in the center. However, as we reported earlier this month, previous leaks have claimed that the phone has a triple-lens camera and the remaining lens shaped circle is reserved for a LED flash. This would mean that OnePlus has opted to ditch the 2MP monochrome camera that is the fourth shooter on the OnePlus 9 Pro, which would in truth be no loss. The space in the centre looks small for a flash to us, but we have to wait and see when the 5G phone is officially launched.
From the dummy we can clearly see a curved screen, with the bottom edge housing the USB-C port, SIM slot and speaker grille. The right edge has a silent mode switch and power button and the left has volume controls. This design aligns with previous links, so its just the number of cameras that’s at odds.
We don’t know if the leaker got hold of this dummy, and if so where from, or if they made it themselves based on new information or just previous leaks and educated guess work, so although exciting, it is best to take it all with a pinch of salt.
OnePlus 10 Pro Specs
What we do know for sure is that the next OnePlus phone will launch with the unified ColorOS/OxygenOS software based on Android 12, as OnePlus has merged with OPPO. A previous leak from Zouton included “expected” specs which, although just speculation, seem quite a good guess. These are: 8GB to 12GB of RAM, 128GB to 256GB of storage, a 6.7-inch 20:9 ratio display with QHD (3216 x 1440) resolution and 120Hz refresh rate, 5,000mAh battery and dimensions of 163.2 mm x 73.6 mm x 8.7 mm.
Most manufacturers follow a pattern where the launch of 5G phones is concerned and as the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro launched in March, we expect the OnePlus 10 series to come out around March 2022.
