Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 for the OnePlus 10 series has been confirmed
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC will power OnePlus’ upcoming devices, according to CEO Pete Lau. Although the OnePlus 10 series was not mentioned specifically in the CEO’s Weibo post, it is expected to be the company’s next flagship. Qualcomm’s new flagship chipset is expected to be used in both the OnePlus 10 and 10 Pro.
The specifications for the Pro model were previously leaked. OnePlus will make significant changes to the device’s rear panel design, according to leaked design renders. It will have a triple-camera setup with a square-shaped camera module on the back. The camera module curves along the side frame to achieve a seamless blend. The specifications of the camera sensors are unknown. A 50MP primary camera sensor or an ultrawide camera sensor are expected from OnePlus. According to a piece of leaked information from tipster Digital Chat Station, the Pro model will support 3.3x optical zoom and up to 30x digital zoom.
A curved AMOLED display with a hole-punch cutout for the front camera will be featured on the front of the phone. The cutout is expected to be in the upper left corner of the display. Although there is no 3.5mm headphone jack on the device, the power button, and alert slider are located on the right edge, while the volume keys are located on the left. The 5000 mAh battery on the phone is also said to support 125W fast charging.
