 Introduction and specifications

OnePlus' ultra-modern flagship supplying is right here. After launching in China numerous weeks ago, we puzzled while the relaxation of the sector could see the brand new OnePlus flagship. Alas, the OnePlus 10 Pro is now to be had outdoor of China, and we're having our rounds with it. It consists of the flagship-grade Snapdragon eight Gen 1, a bigger battery, a brand new selfie digital digicam, and an up to date ultrawide digital digicam.

OnePlus 10 Pro: review

On paper, those updates experience extra like they need to belong to a vanilla OnePlus 10, with extra giant improvements reserved for the "Pro" model. The current rumor of a OnePlus 10 "Ultra" to reach later this 12 months is beginning to make extra experience - speculatively, of course.

In any case, we are hoping to look upgrades in battery lifestyles, and we are satisfied to ultimately see an up to date 32 MP selfie digital digicam module. We're additionally excited to check out the brand new one hundred fifty-diploma ultrawide digital digicam, and we surprise if we're going to see upgrades withinside the foremost digital digicam's picturegraph processing regardless of the ten Pro the usage of the precise identical foremost digital digicam because the nine Pro.

OnePlus 10 Pro specifications at a glance:

The show panel is similar to that of the nine Pro. It is rated for 1300 nits of top brightness, and it has HDR10+ guide and a variable 120Hz refresh price that optimizes battery lifestyles via way of means of switching right all the way down to as little as 1Hz. One new tidbit for the ten Pro is Dual Calibration, because of this that OnePlus has shadeation-calibrated the panel at each 500 and one hundred nits - for extra constant accuracy throughout brightness levels.


The OnePlus 10 Pro is available in popular OnePlus packaging affair: a strong purple container with all of the necessities covered. Our North American version failed to encompass a defensive case (regardless of there being a area for it withinside the container), however it did encompass a USB OTG adapter (USB-A to USB-C) for shifting facts from an antique tool.

The package deal consists of OnePlus stickers, documentation, SIM-eject tool, 65W SuperVOOC charging adapter, and USB-C to C cable.

If you had been to select out up the telecellsmartphone in, say, India, you would get an 80W SuperVOOC rapid charger. This charger has a USB-A port in place of USB-C and is therefore incapable of assisting USB-Power Delivery popular. This charger can best rapid rate OnePlus and Oppo telephones, however the entirety else gets the same old 10W, making it a lot much less beneficial as compared to the 65W model.


In preceding generations, we should wager what the subsequent OnePlus telecellsmartphone became going to seem like primarily based totally on currently launched gadgets from OnePlus' sister brands. With the OnePlus 10 Pro, it feels just like the Oppo sub-logo is making an attempt to face out from its BBK counterparts.

The OnePlus 10 Pro has a much less generic-searching layout this time round. After having a rectangular-formed digital digicam bump with the OnePlus nine Pro and a linear, vertical setup at the eight Pro, the brand new 10 Pro has a flag-formed digital digicam bump that "merges" from the body to the lower back panel. This offers the telecellsmartphone a completely unique layout detail sufficient to face out among different gadgets. The 3 cameras and LED flash ring very a lot provide stovetop burner vibes.

Interestingly, best  of the digital digicam earrings protrude beyond the digital digicam bump: each the principle and telephoto cameras. The ultrawide digital digicam and LED flash ring take a seat down simply under the floor of the bump. Since the digital digicam bump is so huge this time, it is straightforward to inadvertently depart at the least one of the cameras smudged with fingerprints after in brief preserving the telecellsmartphone in panorama.

Our OnePlus 10 Pro evaluation unit is the Volcanic Black model. You can consider it as though OnePlus took the appears of the sandstone end it became recognised for however alternatively made it experience like a top class matte glass end. Under gentle light, the end seems like maximum different matte telephones, however below a vivid lamp or below the sun, you may see what resembles the steel paint of a high-quit vehicle. This is same to the end we noticed at the black OnePlus 9RT.

The telecellsmartphone weighs 201g and feels nicely balanced in hand. The textured glass makes preserving the tool a pleasure - it isn't always slippery, and the coarse however gentle texture repels fingerprints very nicely. Keep in mind, however, that is certainly a bigger-set telecellsmartphone at 163 x 73.nine x eight.fifty five mm. The OnePlus 10 Pro does now no longer characteristic an reputable IP score besides for the T-Mobile version withinside the US, in which it's miles IP68 rated. Basically, you may assume that the ten Pro could be nice in case you by chance took a brief dip, however we'd suggest towards bringing it with you to a water park.

Aside from the brand new digital digicam setup that merges into the body, the format of the ten Pro is what we have got come to assume from the final couple of predecessors. The handset has a flat pinnacle, aleven though opposite to assumption - you can not stability it on its head. Anyway, there may be a noise-canceling microphone right here for calls, and the in-name receiver is housed in a skinny slit alongside the pinnacle of the screen.

The OnePlus 10 Pro has a triple digital digicam machine at the lower back and a unmarried digital digicam at the the front. As with final 12 months's flagships, OnePlus claims the ten Pro cameras were tuned via way of means of Hasselblad.

The foremost huge digital digicam at the lower back is the identical 48-megapixel Sony Exmor IMX789 as at the OnePlus nine Pro. It has a 23mm equal 7P lens with f1.eight aperture, OIS, segment detection autofocus, despite the fact that the laser autofocus has been removed. It can report video as much as 4K 120fps or 8K at 24fps.

The telephoto digital digicam is an eight-megapixel OmniVision OV08A10, which has additionally been carried over from the OnePlus nine Pro. It has a 76mm equal f2.four lens with OIS and PDAF. It can report video as much as 1080p 30fps. Switching to better resolutions or body charges reasons the telecellsmartphone to interchange to zooming digitally on the principle huge digital digicam.

The ultra-huge digital digicam is new for this 12 months. It's a Samsung ISOCELL JN1, a 50-megapixel sensor this is mated to an exceedingly huge-attitude constant cognizance lens with one hundred fifty diploma subject of view. This digital digicam can report video as much as 4K at 30fps.

What's lacking this 12 months is a macro digital digicam, or any kind of macro capability. The OnePlus nine Pro became capable of shoot in macro mode the usage of its ultra-huge digital digicam, however the ultra-huge lens at the OnePlus 10 Pro is constant cognizance. None of the cameras are able to focusing from a near distance.

Camera app

The digital digicam app at the OnePlus 10 Pro is lifted instantly out of ColorOS 12 and much like the only at the OnePlus nine Pro. The digital digicam view has tabs at the lowest to alternate mode with a More alternative on the quit for added modes. At the pinnacle of the viewfinder are extra alternatives for the flash, HDR, AI mode, 48MP mode, timer, component ratio, and extra settings.

The Pro mode helps you to manage the ISO, shutter speed, publicity, cognizance, and white stability. You also can seize in RAW on all 3 lenses at the lower back. There is likewise a RAW+ mode, which saves a DNG record with the identical picturegraph processing because the JPEG documents.

There is likewise a seasoned mode of kinds for video. Here you may manually set the ISO, shutter speed, publicity, cognizance, and white stability. You can shoot with all 3 lenses, and the movies can best be stored in 3840x1644 at 30fps with a 21:nine crop. You can allow a first-rate regular mode, shoot in log profile, or allow HDR, which data withinside the HLG format. Video additionally receives different functions, along with an ultra-regular mode, portrait mode, and AI shadeation mode.

Other functions withinside the digital digicam app encompass a slow-movement mode, that could shoot in 720p at 480fps or 1080p at 240fps, time-lapse, panorama, dual-view video, which shoots with the back and front digital digicam simultaneously, an extended publicity mode, tilt-shift, and a one hundred fifty-diploma mode, that shoots with the overall width of the ultra-huge lens.

OnePlus has additionally covered the XPan mode, which shoots in 65:24 component ratio mimicking the antique Hasselblad XPan digital digicam. This mode became brought to the OnePlus nine Pro retroactively and is unchanged right here. It can nevertheless best shoot in panorama and has a alternatively lengthy shutter animation that forestalls you from taking pictures speedy. You can transfer among shadeation and monochrome modes. Unlike the nine Pro, the ten Pro can not use the XPan mode with the ultra-huge digital digicam. The photos are stored in 23-megapixel, which might be simply upscaled from the same old 12-megapixel photos.

We pass over the antique OnePlus digital digicam app. The new one is shared throughout OnePlus, Oppo and Realme telephones, and it follows a particularly not unusualplace association that does not constantly paintings to its gain.

It's irritating that the video body price and resolutions were separated into  menus for a few reason, despite the fact that they had been a lot higher collectively on older OnePlus telephones. The adjustment dials for Pro mode are small with hard-to-examine numbers, and in case your finger misses the dial slightly, the digital digicam simply slides right into a one of a kind mode. Some onscreen menus withinside the app may be exited via way of means of the usage of the lower back button however doing so for others reasons the complete app to quit.

If you're a Pro mode user, you'll additionally be annoyed via way of means of how frequently the app simply resets your settings. If you allow RAW seize, it'll typically transfer lower back to JPEG after a while on its own. If you exchange values for ISO, shutter speed, etc., they're misplaced after a while or maybe in case you virtually transfer among lenses or RAW modes.

We desire Oppo and ColorOS had borrowed extra from OnePlus than the opposite manner round.

10-bit photos

The OnePlus 10 Pro is one of the only a few telephones to optionally shoot photos in 10-bit shadeation withinside the Photo and Night modes.

While technically, 10-bit photos need to have extra headroom for modifying, you aren't probably to look a lot of a distinction in gradation among the eight-bit and 10-bit photos from this telecellsmartphone because of their compressed nature. Editing in 10-bit makes experience while the photos come from a right digital digicam, however smartphones generally tend to technique and compress their photos a lot, that could reason even a 10-bit picturegraph to crumble speedy when you begin modifying.

Considering their restrained usability and guide, we do not see a lot fee in taking pictures 10-bit pictures on a telecellsmartphone. Also, there's some thing approximately this mixture of 10-bit and HEIF on those documents that made the photos not possible to open in any utility on Windows 10 although it does guide 10-bit and HEIF separately.

Daylight taking pictures

The 12-megapixel photos from the principle digital digicam have a great quantity of element. There is great sharpening, that could appear a hint competitive at times, however is typically tolerable. The shadeation rendering has come an extended manner and is commonly eye-catching however now no longer always accurate, specifically with such things as foliage, which maintains to have a yellowish appearance. The digital digicam additionally has a bent to oversaturate and clip colorings on unmarried-shadeation flowers.

The Display P3 shadeation gamut provides greater intensity to the colours while considered on a well matched show. White stability is typically okay, despite the fact that the digital digicam has an normal tendency to lean in the direction of the hotter side.

The dynamic variety is mediocre. The digital digicam has correct spotlight retention however frequently darkens shadows artificially to supply a very processed, contrasty picturegraph. This compresses the usable dynamic variety to a slender band, that's specifically proscribing if you want to edit your pictures.

Another place of problem is focusing. On more than one occasions, we located the digital digicam lacking cognizance. The trouble is that it typically misses via way of means of some inches, that's not possible to stumble on at the viewfinder and some thing you may best find out at the same time as searching on the picturegraph. It's specifically unmistakable while considered on a bigger screen.

We additionally shot some photos in RAW. The RAW documents from the IMX789 have terrific element, dynamic variety, and occasional noise. You can get exquisite outcomes modifying those photos and might correctly pass all of OnePlus' questionable picturegraph processing choices. The RAW documents also are 12-bit, so that you do not want to hassle with the gimmicky 10-bit HEIFs in case you need most publish processing headroom.

The OnePlus 10 Pro additionally consists of the RAW+ mode, which is meant to encompass a few computational images factors in the RAW record. However, for the duration of our testing, the RAW and RAW+ documents from the OnePlus 10 Pro had been same while considered in an editor. The documents appearance one of a kind at the telecellsmartphone, with the RAW+ record searching extra like a JPEG with publish-processing applied, however, that is probably only a JPEG preview this is embedded in the RAW record, now no longer the RAW record itself.

As such, there has been no gain of taking pictures in RAW+ in this telecellsmartphone. It's viable there's a few malicious program that is inflicting this, as we've visible a outstanding distinction among the RAW and RAW+ documents at the OnePlus 9RT.

The foremost digital digicam does have an choice to shoot in 48-megapixel, however that is simply upscaled from the 12MP photos, and now no longer really well worth the usage of.

Compared to the OnePlus nine Pro, the photos from the ten Pro are almost same. There are a few variations among photographs however not anything that is a end result of a scientific alternate.

The foremost digital digicam can cognizance on topics from approximately 9cm away. That's now no longer too horrific however there may be excessive fringing round the rims this is standard of a huge aperture, making it improper for macro use.

Moving directly to the telephoto digital digicam, the picturegraph great and fashionable overall performance are frequently pretty correct. There is a great quantity of element withinside the picturegraph, and the general appearance is much less over sharpened and over-processed as compared to the principle digital digicam. Even the shadow element isn't always as overwhelmed as the principle digital digicam, and the evaluation is extra eye-catching.

However, there's an trouble with the shadeation processing of this digital digicam, which once in a while outcomes in washed-out colorings with heightened evaluation, harking back to the bleach pass effect. We aren't positive precisely what reasons the digital digicam to supply photos that seem like this however it appears to crop up pretty frequently.

To illustrate, right here is the identical picturegraph in JPEG and RAW. The JPEG picturegraph suggests that function bleach pass appearance with washed out colorings and a silvery tone. The RAW picturegraph - that's absolutely unaltered apart from processed into JPEG for importing right here - has flawlessly herbal colorings and evaluation that in shape the authentic scene.

The telephoto lens has a closest focusing distance of round 30cm. Add to that, withinside the popular picturegraph mode, the instant you technique this distance the digital digicam will mechanically transfer to the principle lens to save you going out of cognizance variety. The best manner to attain the minimal focusing distance at the telephoto digital digicam is thru the Pro mode or even then the minimal distance is just too a long way away for the magnification. As such, the telephoto digital digicam additionally can not be used as a makeshift macro lens.

Lastly, there's the brand new ultra-huge digital digicam. When taking pictures withinside the popular Photo mode, the digital digicam applies a pincushion correction to straighten the lines. This produces pretty popular outcomes optically, and the photos appearance similar to they could on maximum different ultra-huge cameras.
