OnePlus 10 Pro Smartphone

Once upon a time, there was a brand that aspired to be a flagship killer. It had a noble vision of “killing” flagship smartphones with leading features and specs while remaining competitive with its pricing. That brand was OnePlus. But you know what they say “you either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.”

That is kind of what OnePlus has found itself in. It had become the very thing it wanted to get rid of. It is no longer the competitively priced device fans have been looking forward to every year since 2014. Thankfully, it does not hold true for the new OnePlus 10 Pro.

At 4,699 yuan (or roughly US$737), it is a good 300 yuan (US$47) cheaper than the predecessor. Though by currency conversion, it does not appear to have much difference from the 9 Pro but here’s hoping for a slightly cheaper device when it becomes available globally.

With the OnePlus 10 Pro, it continues the collaboration with Hasselblad for the camera system, along with range-topping specs like Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, HyperBoost GPU tech, and 2K+ 120 Hz LTPO 2.0 flexible display.

The new phone design adopts a metal frame with “3D nanocrystalline ceramics” that, together with a curved display, should offer a comfortable hold. Though, it probably does not matter because most people will be slapping a case on anyways.
