Lau shared the information on Weibo, a Chinese social media network. Low-temperature polycrystalline oxide, or LTPO, technology enables a display can have variable refresh rates ranging from 1Hz to 120Hz while using substantially less electricity. These display panels appear to be supplied by Samsung to OnePlus.
The OnePlus 10 Pro will be unveiled next month. The phone would also have an LTPO 2.0 display, according to Lau. This display technology, he claims, would provide a more fluid overall experience than LTPS OLED screens.
The availability of Qualcomm’s newest chipset on the OnePlus 10 Pro has already been confirmed by Pete Lau.
Additionally, the CEO has already confirmed the presence of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. In classic OnePlus fashion, the device could feature impressive fast-charging speeds. Reports say the OnePlus 10 Pro’s 5,000mAh battery will support charging speeds of up to 80W. Rumors have also hinted at 125W fast charging, though it seems unlikely at this point.
Unlike other manufacturers, OnePlus has been forthcoming about some of the hardware features donning the new OnePlus 10 Pro. We’ve learned so far that the flagship will feature a 6.7-inch QHD+ AMOLED screen with the aforementioned LTPO 2.0 technology.
A triple camera is rumored for the OnePlus 10 Pro comprising a 48-megapixel primary sensor, a 50-megapixel ultrawide camera, and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom. The manufacturer’s partnership with Hasselblad will continue with the new flagship, enabling advanced camera capabilities. The rumored periscope camera is unlikely to make the cut with this flagship. Meanwhile, the company will use a 32-megapixel front camera on the OnePlus 10 Pro.
Users would choose between 128GB and 256GB of storage plus 8GB and 12GB of RAM. In line with its predecessors, the OnePlus 10 Pro won’t offer storage expansion. Customers can expect Android 12 to run by default with the latest iteration of OxygenOS.
While OnePlus usually unveils its flagship in March or April, the company could break with tradition by launching the OnePlus 10 Pro in early January 2022. The manufacturer is even sending out invites for an event on January 5 in Las Vegas, suggesting that the device could be showcased during CES 2022.
