On the internet, a live image of a yet-to-be-released OnePlus smartphone with a large camera sensor has been posted. It’s almost certainly the OnePlus 10R, as it’ll be released before the regular OnePlus 10. A MediaTek Dimensity 9000 SoC and a 120 Hz AMOLED screen are rumored to be included in the smartphone.
The OnePlus 10 Pro will be available internationally later this month (March 2022). Now that that’s out of the way, rumors about the standard OnePlus 10 as well as other variants like the OnePlus 10 Ultra and OnePlus 10R have been circulating online. Abhishek Yadav, a Twitter leaker, discovered a picture of an upcoming OnePlus phone on Weibo and deduced that it was either the OnePlus 10 or the OnePlus 10R.
However, @MaxJmb added another piece of information about the mysterious OnePlus device. It appears that the OnePlus 10R will be released before the OnePlus 10, which is unusual because the opposite has almost always been the case. In terms of the image itself, it shows two colour options for a OnePlus smartphone with an obnoxiously large camera module.

For two reasons, one can reasonably assume that the device in question is the OnePlus 10R. The first is Max’s confirmation that it will be released first. As a result, the chances of its prototypes being seen are higher. Second, the OnePlus 10 will most likely be a scaled-down version of the OnePlus 10 Pro, as evidenced by the camera’s aesthetics. It could also have Hasselblad branding on it, though it’s possible that it was obfuscated in the above image.
Except for the fact that it will feature a MediaTek Dimensity 9000 SoC and a 120 Hz AMOLED screen, little is known about the OnePlus 10R’s internals. The Dimensity 9000 has beaten the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in every CPU-related test so far, with the Qualcomm silicon taking the lead on the GPU front. It’ll be interesting to see how well both phones perform in the real world. While the Pro (and non-Pro) models may have an advantage in the camera, the R model may outperform its siblings in terms of raw processing power.
