OnePlus 10 Pro’s more affordable siblings will have some powerful specs
With the international launch of the OnePlus 10 Pro out of the way, the company is shifting its focus towards other devices in the 10 Series. And one of the more interesting ones will be the OnePlus 10R, a successor to the 9R / 9RT. The hype train for this phone is officially on as OnePlus has announced a launch event for it (and North CE 2 Lite) taking place in the Indian market on April 28th. We know the phone comes with lightning fast 150W charging (a surprising upgrade from 10 Pro’s 80W). We also know that the phone will be powered by MediaTek silicon, more specifically the Dimensity 8100’s “MAX” variant.
Earlier rumors have suggested that the phone, which is now confirmed to be launched as “OnePlus Ace” in China, would be powered by MediaTek’s flagship Dimensity 9000. Some recent leaks had suggested that this phone could be a rebranded Realme GT Neo 3 and sport a Dimensity 8100. By adding 150W of charge to the mix, this new chip confirmation from OnePlus (via 9to5Google) fits much better with the later leaks, except that we’re instead talking about a new Max variant.
We do not know the exact difference between the Max and non-Max variants, but the standard 8100 seems to go head-to-head with last year’s Snapdragon 888, so you can expect excellent mileage out of this phone. Maybe not as good a chip as the Dimensity 9000, but still a strong one. Between that and 150W charging, this would probably be a better buy than the OnePlus 10 Pro for many people – the 10 Pro may be a more balanced premium flagship, but the 10R seems to cram a lot of exciting features while remaining powerful enough for most . That said, we do not expect this phone to reach other markets outside of China and India.
As we get closer to the announcement on April 28, OnePlus will slowly reveal more and more details about its phone, so stay tuned to know more.
