OnePlus 10 Pro is the company’s first phone to have a notch, but it’s not just any notch that you’ll find on this device. It’s one of the best ones you can get on a smartphone right now. The pop-up selfie camera is also pretty good. But there are some issues with the design.
The OnePlus 10 Pro has a 6.55-inch AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. This means that the screen is taller than most other smartphones out there. That might be fine for some people, but others will prefer a wider screen.
There’s still no headphone jack, which is a bummer, but at least OnePlus added Bluetooth 5.0 support. If you want to use wired headphones, then you need to buy them separately.
The front of the OnePlus 10 Pro looks like it was designed by Apple. It features two cameras instead of three or four. The triple camera setup includes a 48MP primary sensor, 16MP telephoto lens, and 20MP ultrawide angle lens. In addition to these cameras, there’s also a 3D face scanner in the middle.
Other specs include a Snapdragon 865 processor, up to 12GB of RAM, 128GB of storage (with MicroSD card slot), and an Android Pie OS version.

There isn’t much about the body of the OnePlus 10 Pro that doesn’t look like something from Apple. Even though the OnePlus logo is hidden under the display, it still sticks out. For example, if you hold the phone horizontally, you’ll see the “O” line.
While the rest of the design seems similar to what we saw earlier this year, I think that the OnePlus 10 Pro is a little bit better looking than its predecessor. However, I would say that it’s fairly plain when compared to high-end phones from Google and Samsung.
It’s okay, but nothing special.
At 6.55 inches, the OnePlus 10 Pro has a relatively large 18:9 display. Most people who don’t like having their smartphone screens cut off won’t mind this size.
However, the smaller displays found on the iPhone XS Max and Galaxy S10 Plus actually look better. You should know that the OnePlus 10 Pro has only a 1080p resolution, so the image quality is going to be lower than those devices.
That said, the screen is bright enough to make up for it. There’s also HDR support, which works well with Dolby Vision content.
As far as rear cameras go, the OnePlus 10 Pro comes with a single 48MP camera. It uses Sony’s IMX586 sensor, which is capable of capturing 4K video at 30 fps. In addition to that, it supports RAW photography modes, slow-motion videos, and more.
In terms of optics, the OnePlus 10 Pro offers an f/1.6 aperture, optical zoom, 2x hybrid autofocus speed, and dual-tone LED flash. It also has a dedicated Nightscape mode, which helps capture images with less noise.

On the front side, there’s a new pop-up selfie camera. While it may seem like a gimmick, it does work quite well. The main benefit of having this camera is that it allows you to take photos without having to open the app.
As mentioned above, the OnePlus 10 Pro is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 chipset. That’s coupled with up to 12GB of LPDDR4X RAM. This means that the device can handle most tasks easily.
Gaming performance is pretty good too. With the Adreno 650 GPU, you can play games such as Fortnite, PUBG Mobile, League of Legends, Clash Royale, and many others.
With a huge battery capacity of 4,400mAh, the OnePlus 10 Pro should last all day long. On my daily usage, I get around 7 hours of screen time and over 15 hours of Talktime.
You might not get the same amount of power because of your usage habits, but this is definitely one of the best smartphones for gaming.

This model supports WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.0 LE, NFC, USB Type-C 3.1 Gen 1, GPS + GLONASS, and even 5G connectivity.
The OnePlus 10 Pro will come in two storage options. The cheaper variant has 64GB of internal memory, while the other version packs 128GB. Both have microSD card slots, but only the first option supports expandable memory.
Price and release date
The OnePlus 10 Pro costs $699 (roughly Rs. 45,000) in India. It’s available through Amazon, Flipkart, and Mi Home Stores. The company says that preorders are expected to begin sometime next week.
