OnePlus 10 design could be similar to OnePlus 9’s; new Nord phones in the pipeline

The upcoming OnePlus 10 series may not bring significant upgrades to the design.

Highlights
  • OnePlus 10 series is already in the works and is expected to debut in March 2022.
  • The upcoming flagship series will be a polished version of the OnePlus 9 lineup.
  • OnePlus is said to be working on Nord series phones and some accessories.

OnePlus 9 RT is expected to launch next month in India and China and it will be the only numbered flagship for this year. After the OnePlus 9 RT, the company will be shifting its focus to the OnePlus 10 flagships that should debut around March-April 2022. While it’s too early to comment on what the OnePlus 9 series successors will bring with regards to hardware, noted tipster Yogesh Brar says the OnePlus 10 design may not be radically different from its predecessor. According to him, the OnePlus 10 phones will be polished versions of the OnePlus 9 series. This likely means, the OnePlus 10 Pro version will have curved edges and a punch-hole cutout, while the regular model will have a flat screen.

Separately, possible OnePlus 9 RT with the model number MT2111 has appeared on the BIS certification, suggesting the launch could be close. The listing doesn’t reveal much else about the phone.

It is said to be powered by the Snapdragon 870 chipset paired with up to 12GB LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB UFS 3.1 storage.

OnePlus 9 RT is said to feature a 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor, the same sensor seen on the OnePlus Nord 2. The primary sensor will be paired with a 16MP Sony IMX481 ultra-wide-angle lens and a 2MP B&W sensor. It is said to feature a 16MP snapper on the front for selfies and video chats. A 4,500mAh dual-cell battery with 65W fast-charging support is said to fuel the phone. The OnePlus 9 RT is said to be equipped with NFC, dual stereo speakers, and an X-axis vibration motor. It will be the first OnePlus phone to boot OxygenOS 12 based Android 12 out of the box.
