On the fence as to buying the OnePlus 10 Pro or waiting for the ‘T’ version that usually gets announced near the end of the year? It seems that a new model is coming that will either take the place of the ‘T’ series or perhaps just muddy the water. Rumored to be called the OnePlus 10 Ultra, the new flagship will reportedly pack in upgraded cameras and use Qualcomm’s soon-to-be-announced follow-up to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor.
According to well-known leakster, Yogesh Brar, OnePlus is currently testing a device running under the OnePlus 10 Ultra moniker which will bring improvements in the camera department and be powered by the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ processor. It’s thought that the OnePlus 10 Ultra will feature the MariSilicon X imaging chip that debuted in the Find X5 Pro in order to boost the camera performance. There may also be upgrades to the actual camera sensors although there are no concrete details on that as yet.
Yogesh Brar has also stated that the OnePlus 10 Ultra is being lined up for release sometime from August – September and that the brand plans to launch additional mid-range Nord models powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 8000 and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 processors. There’s even a phone planned that will feature a Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset under the hood. It sounds as if OnePlus is switching up its lineup once again with more devices covering more segments being developed for release in what’s left of 2022.
