Now, Pete Lau, chief product officer of OPPO and CEO of OnePlus, has confirmed that One Plus 10 Pro will be unveiled on January 5, 2022. The pre-registration for the device has already started in China. However, there is no information about the regular One Plus 10’s release yet.
Recently, OnePlus has been pushing up the release dates for the launches. The One Plus 9 arrived on March 23 while the OnePlus 8 came on April 14. So, we should expect the One Plus 10 to be available globally during this time only.
OnePlus 10 Pro to be launched on January 4, 2022; Pre-registration starts in China
According to the official post on Weibo, which is a Chinese social media platform, the pre-sale for the One Plus 10 Pro will start at 10 o’clock (2:00 AM GMT) on January 4th, 2022, in China. The device will be unveiled at the same time and date.
The booking for the OP 10 Pro will be completely free. You will even earn a gift pack worth 1000 Yuan ($157) for the registration.
Pete Lau has confirmed the news previously in a separate Weibo post, but he hasn’t provided any information about the vanilla variant yet.
One Plus 10 and One Plus 10 Pro Full Specifications
Pete Lau has already confirmed that the company’s next-gen devices will be powered by the recently launched Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Generation 1 processors. The announcement came after Qualcomm announced the latest Snapdragon processor series.
Though he didn’t confirm if One Plus 10 and One Plus 10 Pro will feature the processor but it seems already inevitable. The One Plus 10 series always utilizes the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. So, it’s only safe to say they will use Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

One Plus 10 Pro Specifications revealed by the CEO
Pete Lau’s Weibo post had given us a close look at what the One Plus 10 Pro will offer. It will feature an LTPO 2.0 display which will result in extended battery life. The LTPO technology is developed by Apple and offers a more flexible refresh rate ranging between 1Hz and 120Hz.
The device will also have a 6.7-Inch size with QHD+ resolutions manufactured by Samsung. The One Plus 10 Pro will also have a triple camera setup on the rear, comprising of a 48MP primary sensor, a 50MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and an 8MP 3x optical zoom support.

One Plus 10 and 10 Pro Design and Display
Fans have been expecting fresh designs for the One Plus 10 and One Plus 10 Pro. However, various renders and dummy units suggest that the One Plus 10 will be very identical to the OPPO Reno7 Pro while One Plus 10 Pro could be a polished version of the OP9 Pro.

One Plus 10 and One Plus 10 Expected Price
There is no official information about the price of the One Plus 10 series yet. However, based on previous prices, we can figure out a pattern to guess the prices of the upcoming devices.
First of all, take a look at the prices of the past One Plus devices:
- OnePlus-9: £629/$729/€699
- OnePlus-9 Pro: £829/€899
- OnePlus-8T: £549/$649
- OnePlus-8: £599/$699

From this, we can see that One Plus has kept the prices very stable. The regular One Plus 10 could be priced around the $700/£600 mark while the OnePlus 10 Pro will be priced somewhere around $900/£800/€900. We do not expect a major price change for the upcoming series.
Things will become more clear once the One Plus 10 Pro is unveiled on January 4, 2022. OnePlus’ CES 2022 appearance will also bring a lot of cool announcements. We only need to wait for a few days now, and we’ll have plenty of ideas about the upcoming OP devices.
