The OnePlus 10 Pro may be the first to be released in China. A worldwide release would follow a few months later. Smartphone maker OPPO, which is owned by OnePlus parent company BBK, already uses a similar release strategy for its devices.
Max Jambor, who often shares information about OnePlus, published a slide on Twitter showing the alleged release months of the OnePlus 10 Pro, Android Authority noted. The device would be released in China in January or February, and a worldwide release would follow in March or April. With that, the upcoming smartphone would be sold exclusively in China for two or three months.
OnePlus announced earlier this year that the company would be working more closely with Oppo. Among other things, the company is merging OPPO’s Android skin, ColorOS, with its own OxygenOS. An internal memo also circulated in June indicating that OnePlus would become a subsidiary of OPPO. It would therefore not be entirely surprising if OnePlus indeed releases its upcoming smartphones in China first. OPPO is already doing that at the moment.
Well-known leaker OnLeaks previously published renders and details of the OnePlus 10 Pro. The device would include a large camera island with three sensors. The device would also have a 6.7″ AMOLED screen with a 20:9 aspect ratio and a refresh rate of 120Hz. The battery capacity may be 5000mAh, although that can change. The smartphone may also receive support for 125W fast charging, based on of OPPO’s Flash Charge technology.
