OnePlus is addressing the whole Oppo question

So it looks like OnePlus is not shying away from questions that the brand is just going to become another Oppo. OnePlus says they will retain a different brand identity and that being close to Oppo helps them manage other aspects like R&D and supply chain, which does make sense. And yes, OxygenOS remains separate. It is not going to be ColorOS.

OnePlus 10 Pro battery

This time the phone sports a 5000 mAh battery with SuperVOOC charging which is 80W. OnePlus claims the phone will get to 70 per cent in just 15 minutes, which should be good enough for most of us.

The camera is a getting a 'Movie Mode' for better and more professional videos. The camera can also shoot 4K videos at 120 frames per second.

OnePlus 10 Pro launch: Camera first

Of course, OnePlus is talking about the camera first given the partnership with Hasselblad. OnePlus is talking up the 'One Billion Colour Solution'. Looks like the Shark Tanks judges are not interested. One is sleeping. And for some reason they are cracking lame jokes. Anyway, OnePlus 10 Pro's ultra-wide has a 150-degree point of view and it comes with a Fish-eye mode as well.

OnePlus 10 Pro launch

Ok so the launch video is now officially on. And it appears to be a Shark Tank style video. And it looks like OnePlus is pitching itself during its own launch event. OnePlus makes it clear: we are not a startup. Interestingly, OnePlus' Red Cable Club has 20 million users. The company claims to have sold 10 million phones in 2021 alone.

OnePlus 10 Pro launch begins

And it's 7.25 pm. The launch event begins. But let's be honest. All of us really want to know the price for the OnePlus 10 Pro. What's your guess for the price?  

19:22 (IST)31 Mar 2022
OnePlus 10 Pro and OxygenOS: What to keep in mind

Now as we noted earlier, OnePlus’ original plan was to merge the OxygenOS skin with Oppo’s ColorOS. But the move was heavily criticised by long-time OnePlus fans. Thankfully OnePlus has decided to call off merger. However, the OxygenOS and ColorOS will  continue to be developed on the same codebase and according to Pete Lau, this is being done to allow for faster updates and better build quality. But the two will remain independent brand properties. 

19:18 (IST)31 Mar 2022
OnePlus Event: What to expect?

Going by past event, we expect a slick movie-style presentation highlighting the key features of the OnePlus 10 Pro, instead of just droning on about specifications. OnePlus typically does not mention or dwell on the specifications for too long. The event starts in another 5 minutes or so. 

18:45 (IST)31 Mar 2022
OnePlus 10 Pro: Don't expect a 'reasonable' price

The price is the most awaited aspect of any OnePlus launch and it will be no different with the OnePlus 10 Pro. The reason is because once upon a time, OnePlus was the only brand that offered top-level specifications with the high-end Snapdragon processor at what was considered a very reasonable price.

But that's changed over the years, and last year's OnePlus 9 Pro started at Rs 64,999 going up to Rs 69,999. Given the flagship level specifications, plus the camera featues, we expect the OnePlus 10 Pro to sport a heavy-duty price tag. 

And there are several reasons for this. For one, supply chain woes means that prices of parts have gone up in general. Expect that to reflect in the final price as well. Keep in mind that OnePlus has changed from the brand it used to be with a lot more diverse set of options from the Nord to the R series. It now some solid 'affordable' options in the Rs 25,000 price bracket, and the OnePlus R series is more for those looking for a phone in the Rs 45k bracket.

The Pro is now ultra-premium and competes with the top-end iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S series devices.

OnePlus 10 Pro: Software

This will be an important question for many users. Now previously OnePlus had spoken about introducing a new version of ColorOS (from its parent company Oppo)+ OxygenOS (which is what we typically see OnePlus phones). However, fans were not too happy given OxygenOS is an important reason why many consider the OnePlus flagship in the first place. But it looks like OnePlus is listening to consumer feedback and sticking with OxygenOS for now. 

18:36 (IST)31 Mar 2022
OnePlus 10 Pro: Camera

OnePlus 10 Pro continues with the Hasselblad partnership as well. This will be the second phone from the brand to come with the branding. Hasselblad is a renowned Swedish camera manufacturer. This time, the camera setup includes a 48MP 50MP ultra-wide and 8MP telephoto camera at the back. We will have to wait and see how OnePlus improves on the camera aspect. With the OnePlus 9 Pro, we had mentioned in our review that the camera was much improved, and delivered more natural results. Will OnePlus 10 Pro take it to another level? 

17:47 (IST)31 Mar 2022
OnePlus 10 Pro and what else?

OnePlus 10 Pro will be the main attraction at today's event, but the company is also expected to showcase OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z2 as well. These are neckband style earbuds, which come with IP55 dust and water resistance rating. The price will be announced at today's event.

OnePlus 10?

Each year, OnePlus launches two phones together: The regular OnePlus variant and the Pro version. The regular variant is usually more affordable, and often a comparable Snapdragon processor. But this time we are only expecting the OnePlus 10 Pro at tonight's launch. So where is the OnePlus 10? Will it be launched at a later date? Last year, the OnePlus 9 ran the same Snapdragon 888 chipset as the Pro, though the camera was different.  

16:24 (IST)31 Mar 2022
OnePlus 10 Pro: Price in India?

The big question with the OnePlus 10 Pro will be around price. Last year's OnePlus 9 Pro started at Rs 64,999 for the 8GB/128GB variant and Rs 69,999 for the 12GB/256GB variant. And before that the OnePlus 8 Pro started at Rs 54,999 for 8GB + 128GB version, while the top-end model of the phone with 12GB/256GB cost Rs 59,999. So yes, OnePlus has been steadily increasing prices for its flagship. Will the OnePlus 10 Pro cross the Rs 70,000 price mark? We will just have to wait and see.

Other features include UFS 3.1 storage, stereo speakers, an under-display fingerprint scanner and a 5,000mah battery with support for 80W fast charging.
