OnePlus has published all the details about the OnePlus 10 Pro, its new high-end model with which it intends to stand out for its camera and power.
We’ve already seen increased interest in photography in the latest OnePlus models, especially with the collaboration with Hasselblad on the OnePlus 9. But with this generation, the stakes are even more apparent than before.
And it is that the great novelties of the OnePlus 10 Pro are concentrated in the cameras, and in all the technology implemented to improve them. Their importance is evident in the design, which makes them stand out from the rest of the rear in their own color separate from the rest of the device, the only design decision that has turned out to be somewhat controversial.
The cameras of the OnePlus 10 Pro represent the second generation Hasselblad, and boast a very striking technology: OnePlus Billion Color Solution. Basically, it consists of a color calibration to get more eye-catching photos; Technically, all three cameras are capable of taking 10-bit color photos, which is a 25% increase in the DCI-P3 color gamut. Compared to mobiles that only shoot 8-bit, it involves processing 64 times more color.
Where this phone can really stand out from the rest is in wide-angle photos. We have complained a lot about phones with a wide angle that are not much use because of their low quality, and now OnePlus comes to the rescue with the first wide angle with a 150 degree field of view, up to four times the usual; we even have a “fisheye” mode. This allows you to capture more of the scene than usual, which should help inspire us to take different photos. However, OnePlus clarifies that by default, the photos will be taken with a field of view of 110 degrees with distortion treatment, but we can use 150 degrees from a camera menu.
The improvement of cameras has motivated many people to start shooting in RAW format, to edit the images with as much information as possible. In the OnePlus 10 Pro, the RAW capture will be 12 bits, but in addition, we will have the RAW + mode that in addition to creating the RAW file we can also continue using OnePlus algorithms to improve the photo. According to the company, this will translate into greater freedom, preserving image enhancements with greater dynamic range and noise reduction.
For video recording, this model debuts the Pelcula way, which allows you to set the shutter speed, ISO, and white balance before and after recording. It also supports the LOG format, ideal for video editors.
If we turn the mobile over, we will find a 6.7-inch screen with curvature. As expected, it adopts a high refresh rate of 120 Hz, but thanks to the second generation LTPO technology it is able to go down to 1 Hz depending on what is shown on the screen; this way, less power is consumed than leaving the screen always in the fastest mode.
To ensure a good image, the OnePlus 10 Pro is the first to offer Dual Color calibration; that is, the screen has been calibrated to display colors correctly with two different brightness levels instead of the default level alone.
Inside, and like all the new top-of-the-line 2022 range, the OnePlus 10 Pro opts for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, Qualcomm’s new processor that is now faster and with a 25% more efficient GPU. That also gives you a 10 gigabit 5G connection thanks to the integrated Snapdragon X65 modem. It will be accompanied by 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256 GB of storage.
The OnePlus 10 Pro will be the first mobile from the manufacturer to have 80 W fast charge, quite a jump with respect to the usual 66 W; The necessary adapter and cable will come in the box. We will also have wireless charging of no less than 50 W, which is enough to charge the mobile in 47 minutes. All this with Android 12 thanks to the new ColorOS 12.1 layer.
The OnePlus 10 Pro will be available in China this week, with a launch planned in Spain but not yet announced. It can be obtained in two colors, volcanic black and emerald forest.
