The OnePlus 10 launch has been a bit unwieldy, with the worldwide OnePlus 10 Professional launch coming final week, months after it was unveiled for the Chinese language market.
Nonetheless, for the primary time, the launch of the Professional was not accompanied by a normal OnePlus 10. There are rumours of a OnePlus 10 Extremely, however nonetheless no signal of a daily version.
Now we’d know why. It appears the system would possibly launch below sister-company Oppo’s branding. The 2 firms are way more carefully aligned today and share numerous R&D sources, so this wouldn’t be shocking in any respect.
A leak on the Chinese language social community Weibo (through Android Headlines) purportedly reveals the Oppo Reno 8, which appears an terrible lot like what we’ve seen from OnePlus, particularly that telltale ‘stovetop’ digicam array with the round LED flash.
Past that, the specs define what many would have anticipated from a normal OnePlus 10, falling just a little beneath the Professional model. The Professional mentions a Full HD+ 6.55-inch, 120Hz show with a 50-megapixel sensor headlining a triple digicam. The design doesn’t function the identical Hasselblad branding, however that’s a decidedly Professional function anyway.
Studies at the moment are suggesting the OnePlus 10 may need been ‘donated’ to Oppo, so it’ll be attention-grabbing to see how all this performs out.
OnePlus has taken some criticism for its nearer ties with Oppo in latest months, together with an outright rejection of its determination to drop the favored OxygenOS Android UI for the latter’s ColorOS. The venerable Android Police web site went as far to say OxygenOS 12 on the OnePlus 9 was “simply totally different shades of lipstick on the identical pig.”
Our personal Max Parker gave the OnePlus 10 Professional a 4 star overview, claiming “the OnePlus 10 Professional notches up some spectacular wins with its good display screen, fast-charging, and dependable efficiency,” however bemoaned a digicam system that wasn’t as much as competing with the leaders of the Android pack.
