OnePlus 10 Pro concept renders show a top-notch model with a mammoth display, and an impressive camera module. The Chinese consumer electronics company launched the OnePlus 9 series of phones in March this year. The brand’s huge fanbase was waiting with bated breath for the arrival of the OnePlus 9T lineup, considering that the company refreshes its flagship phones lineup after six months.
Much to the chagrin of those restlessly waiting to get their hands on the OnePlus 9T, the company didn’t announce a OnePlus 9 successor. OnePlus rubbed salt into the wound by confirming that the OnePlus 9T series will not even see the light of day. In other words, its next flagship will be announced sometime in 2022, and will probably be called OnePlus 10.
OnePlus 10 Pro Concept Renders
Interestingly, the next-gen flagships haven’t been subject to a lot of leaks or even speculations. However, LetsGoDigital and graphic designer Jermaine Smit (aka ConceptCreator) has created OnePlus 10 Pro concept renders that show the phone in the way he thinks it would look. Smit shared the concept render on his YouTube channel that has 125K subscribers at the time of writing.
OnePlus 10 Pro concept design shown in the aforesaid renders has a screen that is curved on both sides. This is similar to the OnePlus 9 Pro display. Interestingly, the screen does not feature a notch or a punch-hole to house a selfie camera. This implies that the camera sensor may be embedded into the display. Alternatively, the company could place a punch-hole design at the top-center portion of the OnePlus 10 Pro.

Under-Display Camera & Other Expected Specs
There’s a big circular hump featuring a dual-camera setup at the back. Aside from that, the rear side houses an LED flash and a xenon flash. In the last few years, smartphone makers have refrained from using xenon flash, so there is a slim chance that the OnePlus 10 Pro will come with a xenon flash. The Hasselblad branding is showcased under the camera hump. This suggests that OnePlus collaborated with Hasselblad for its camera sensors or camera software for the OnePlus 10 Pro, just like it did for the OnePlus 9 and it’s Pro variant.
The concept renders showcases the back panel with black-tinted faux leather. OnePlus has a reputation for using unconventional materials and colorways for the back panel of its phones. So, it would be barely surprising if the brand uses leatherette for the OnePlus 10 series of phones. Morever, the concept renders suggest that the 3.5mm audio jack will be placed at the top. The bottom will house microphone grills, a speaker, and a USB Type-C port.
The right side of the phone has a power button with a camera shutter button and an alert slider. The volume rocker is on the left-hand side of the OnePlus 10 Pro. The phone seems to sport a 6.7 inches display and could pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor with 12GB of RAM. It could draw its juices from a 5000mAh battery. Furthermore, 91mobiles suggests that the 12 GB RAM + 256 GB ROM model could retail for INR 68,999 (about $930). The phone could go official on October 22 this year, the site suggests.
