The OnePlus 10 Pro officially launches today... in China (it’s January 10 in the U.S, but 11 in China). This is the final embargo of what has been several days of phone details unnecessarily spread across a week. You already know about the OnePlus 10 Pro’s design, cameras, and most of the specs. Here’s the rest of the information on the OnePlus 10 Pro that you’ve been waiting for.
Global launch dates — Like we said, China first with a street date of January 13. Europe, India, and North America get the OnePlus 10 Pro “later in 2022.” How much later? I asked OnePlus; they declined more specificity.
Price — OnePlus didn’t provide pricing information — not even for the China launch so we can get a rough idea of how much it’d cost in other regions. It’s very bizarre and can only mean the phone is not cheap if the company is not boasting about how it undercuts the iPhone 13 Pro or Galaxy S21 Ultra or Pixel 6 Pro.
Update: According to OnePlus China (via r/OnePlus), prices are as follows:
- 8GB RAM + 128GB storage: RMB 4,699 (about $737 USD / 933 CAD)
- 8GB RAM + 256GB storage: RMB 4,999 (about $785 USD / 994 CAD)
- 12GB RAM + 256GB storage: RMB 5,299 (about $832 USD / 1053 CAD)
Actual MSRP will differ when the OnePlus 10 Pro launches outside of China. As r/tribalduck notes: “OP 9 Pro were [RMB] 4999, 5499, and 5999 respectively so it is still a price drop.”
The OnePlus 9 Pro launched in the U.S. starting at $969 (8GB RAM + 128GB storage) and $1,069 for 12GB RAM + 256GB storage).
Display, storage, and RAM specs — For some reason OnePlus didn’t want to share exact specs for the 120Hz Fluid AMOLED display, RAM, or storage configurations last week. Now, we have that info. The screen measures 6.7 inches (OnePlus wouldn’t share resolution) and has what OnePlus touts the “first in the industry with Dual Color Calibration, meaning its display has been calibrated to deliver accurate, natural colors at two different levels of brightness – high and low.” OnePlus says this allows the phone’s screen to show more accurate and consistent colors.
RAM and storage configurations are as follows: Up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. Are there lower RAM and storage configurations? I asked OnePlus and the company wouldn’t say.

Goodbye Warp Charging, hello SuperVOOC — OnePlus’ Warp Charging for fast wired and wireless charging was always just a rebranded version of Oppo’s SuperVOOC charging tech. Now, they’re one and the same. The OnePlus 10 Pro supports 80W SuperVooC Flash Charge wired charging, which the company says can charge from 1-100% in 32 minutes. That’s fast!
For wireless charging, it supports 50W AirVOOC Wireless Flash Charge, which OnePlus says can take the OnePlus 10 Pro from 1-100% in 47 minutes. OnePlus wouldn’t say, but my guess is you will need a special charger (sold separately) to get the full 50W wireless charging speed like the Warp Charge 50 Wireless Charger stand for the OnePlus 9 Pro.
