What will OnePlus 10 be like and when will it be released

When phone makers release their models at a certain time, it’s commonplace. Then at some point they postpone the date of the presentation, and everyone starts to wonder why this happened. There can be very, very many reasons, but, as a rule, they are connected with the desire to sell more or get some kind of image bonuses. There have been many rumors this year that OnePlus will release its anniversary flagship earlier. No one could name the exact reason, but a couple of days ago there was an official confirmation that the launch would be earlier, and we can only figure out why this is happening and what it promises to us, ordinary users and technology fans.

What is known about OnePlus 10

The OnePlus 10 and 10 Pro have been leaking widely over the past few months, which is usually a symbol that the launch is not just imminent, but very soon. While there were rumors that OnePlus was pushing its traditional spring release to January, there was no confirmation until this week. Now various sites have begun to unanimously publish information that OnePlus founder Pete Lau has confirmed the January launch on the Weibo social network.

Lau shared a message that only says, ” OnePlus 10 Pro, see you in January .” This is as straightforward as possible. With OnePlus launching in January, it is likely that the company wants to surpass Samsung as it historically launched its flagship S-series in February (and early January in 2021). The shift in the date of the announcement will allow you to get ahead of the Koreans if they go the traditional way, or simply hinder sales by eating a decent piece of the pie.

Why Chinese phones have become so popular

In general, Chinese companies have greatly improved and are actively sharing the legacy of barely living Huawei , and all means are good along the way. Especially considering that the new OnePlus flagship should really be very interesting. Such activity on the international market is especially important, since the domestic market has already settled down a little.

However, it was not in vain that I remembered about the Chinese market. In this seemingly one hundred percent scenario, some variables are possible. For example, previous rumors pointed to an exclusive launch of new products in China in January, while the rest of the world was supposed to receive the OnePlus 10 only in March or April. Given that Pete Lau shared his statement on China’s Weibo and not on Twitter or another international platform, it is possible that these are the rumors we should be targeting. The semiconductor crisis adds even more weight to this theory, from which all manufacturers suffer and simply cannot throw such batches of devices onto the market as before.

Which is better, Samsung or OnePlus

Thus, with a high degree of probability, OnePlus will be able to spoil Samsung’s life only in the Chinese market, which is important for Samsung, but not critical. Personally, I would be interested to see how OnePlus takes customers away from the Korean company by “hanging advertisements” of its phone next to the new Samsung product.

In the end, it remains to be seen whether the OnePlus 10 really has to be that good for Samsung to have to worry about it. So far, having collected the rumors bit by bit, we can say the following.

What will be the OnePlus 10

The most interesting change to OnePlus’ flagship lineup is probably the move to a Galaxy S21-style design. The renders show that the 10 Pro is equipped with a camera array that spans the edge of the phone, making it less pronounced. Further leaks suggest the 10 Pro will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and will sport a 6.7-inch 120Hz screen. All of this will be powered by a 5,000mAh battery.

Spoils the impression a bit that OnePlus has switched to Oppo’s ColorOS. The brand’s own platform was, if not more enjoyable, then at least quite interesting and attractive.

While these rumors already give us a pretty good idea of ​​what we can expect, only the January launch will really confirm those findings. Luckily, we don’t have to wait too long, at least compared to previous OnePlus launches . Even the fact that the novelty can reach other countries only in the middle of spring does not spoil the fact of the presentation.
