A new render leak of the eagerly awaited OnePlus 10 Pro 5G phone reveals a somewhat surprising design for the company’s flagship device with a chunky camera block on the back – not dissimilar from the Samsung S21 Ultra design. The renders are courtesy of prolific leaker, OnLeaks and have been created with Zouton, who say the 5K renders are based on an actual photo of a version of the phone. Creating a render rather than sharing the leaked photo will presumably protect the photographer.
Sooo... I'm back from the Future again, this time with the very first and early look at the #OnePlus10Pro in form of stunning 5K renders!On behalf of @ZoutonUS -> https://t.co/OPSs1ray1P pic.twitter.com/A6h1EfT98aNovember 9, 2021
In the two leaked renders, we can see the OnePlus 10 Pro supposedly has three rear cameras and an LED flash. This would mean that OnePlus has decided not to include the 2MP monochrome camera that is the fourth shooter on the OnePlus 9 Pro, which makes sense as this particular camera was an odd choice anyway.
As OnePlus has a multi-year partnership with Hasselblad we would definitely expect to see a Hasselblad logo, but this isn’t the case in the leaked renders. However, this is probably just means the leaked photo was of an unfinished, early prototype as designs are always subject to change.
OnePlus 10 Pro Specs
As OnePlus has merged with OPPO, we know that the next OnePlus phone will launch with the unified ColorOS/OxygenOS software based on Android 12. That is all we know for sure, though. However, when Zouton posted their renders, they also posted “expected” specs which include 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. This seems like sensible speculation, but it’s important to remember it is just educated guesswork and in reality, only the Chinese manufacturer knows the specs at this point.
Given that manufacturers usually follow a pattern where launches are concerned and the fact that the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro launched in March, we expect the OnePlus 10 series to come out around March next year. This gives OnePlus plenty of time to change the design of the new 5G phone, assuming of course that the leak is accurate.
