New details suggesting that the OnePlus 10, OnePlus 10 Pro launch date could be right around the corner have surfaced online. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer is gearing up for an imminent launch of its new flagship smartphone. The word on the street is that the phone will come with the OnePlus 10 Pro moniker. As expected, the company is leaving no stone unturned in a bid to keep its key details under wraps.
The alleged OnePlus 10 Pro variant has made multiple appearances online in the form of leaks lately. Moreover, earlier reports have already divulged some key specifications of the upcoming handset. The upcoming flagship smartphone will be following in the footsteps of its predecessor, the OnePlus 9 series in terms of going official. To recall, OnePlus reportedly canceled the OnePlus 9T smartphone that was slated to launch this year. However, vital pieces of information about the OnePlus 10 Pro launch date have just popped up online, confirming its imminent launch.
OnePlus 10 Pro Launch Date Tipped
If a report from 91mobiles proves to be true, the OnePlus 10 Pro flagship will launch in China in January 2022. However, the report suggests that OnePlus will announce it globally before bringing it into the Chinese market. The phone’s global announcement will take place either in March or April. To recall, the OnePlus 9 series was launched around the same time. The report attributes the phone’s delayed global launch to the unified OS that the Chinese company is working on in collaboration with Oppo.
Taking to his Twitter account on December 7, reliable tipster Max Jambor has shared what looks like a OnePlus event invitation. Moreover, the tweet claims that the event will take place in Las Vegas on January 5, 2022. Interestingly, the OnePlus event’s date coincides with the day the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) will be kicking off. It is worth mentioning here that Jambor did not specifically mention the OnePlus 10 or the OnePlus 10 Pro in his tweet. However, OnePlus could be either announcing or at least hinting at the phones’ imminent arrival at the event.

Upfront, it will house a 32MP shooter for selfies and video calling. Furthermore, the device will carry an IP68 rating for water resistance.
A robust 5000mAh battery that supports 125W wired charging will be powering up the entire system. Aside from that, the phone will available in 8GB RAM+128GB storage, and 12GB RAM+256GB UFS 3.1 storage configurations. The OnePlus 10 Pro renders hinted at a square camera setup at the back.
