OnePlus 10 Pro now supports Verizon’s 5G services, including C-band 5G
The OnePlus 10 Pro finally went on sale in the US this week after a launch only in China in January, but the device did not have access to Verizon’s 5G services. That problem has now been resolved, just in time for buyers to receive their phones.
According to XDA Developers, the 10 Pro will be the latest OnePlus device to make certification work on Verizon’s 5G network. It will also have access to Verizon’s C-Band 5G, which operates on the 3.7 to 4.2 GHz spectrum. VZW and AT&T went live with C-band 5G in January. And the mid-range 5G spectrum excellently finds the right balance between speed and signal range (in other words, it provides a reliable experience, especially in denser areas of the US) and rolls out to more cities and devices.
However, the OnePlus 10 Pro does not support the super-fast millimeter-wave network (mmWave). It would have been nice to have, but given that the technology is short-lived and Verizon has not rolled it out to many places, very few people would miss the lack of support.
With the VZW certification of the road, the OnePlus 10 Pro now works on T-Mobile and Verizon 5G, according to The Verge. But the same cannot be said of AT&T, as the device is not expected to be certified for the operator’s 5G service. So AT&T subscribers may need to find other solutions if they want 5G.
The OnePlus 10 Pro comes to the US with a Snapdragon 8 Gen1 SoC, but its 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage is lower than last year’s OnePlus 9 Pro. However, the battery capacity has increased from 4500mAh to 5000mAh, and charging remains fast with 65W wired and 50W wireless speeds (80W wired charging is reserved for international markets).
