It is almost certain that Samsung will flash big early next year. However, OnePlus is also making something similar and may even overtake the South Korean manufacturer.
OnePlus once put it all on one page: affordable high-end “top phone killer” devices. It was later opened to the middle class, while the last line remained (where it raised prices nicely and quietly). The OnePlus ten series, which could easily rival next year’s Samsung phones, can fit into the latter idea.
Recently, a well-known tipster, @OnLeaks, posted pictures of the OnePlus phone.
Of course, these photos are unofficial, but according to the leak, they are based on prototypes, and he thinks they can probably be the final version. As you can see in the picture, unlike the previous solution, the OnePlus 10 Pro’s three cameras and flash will be arranged in a 2×2 square shape that stands out from the back.
Following last week very first glimpse at the #OnePlus10Pro, now comes your very first complete and detailed look at the – likely final version – upcoming #OnePlus Flagship! (360° video + terrific 5K renders + dimensions)

You’ll also hear that the OnePlus 10 Pro comes with a 125W fast charge, which is enough to charge a fully discharged phone in as little as 20 minutes. Incidentally, OnePlus has confirmed that the 10 Series phones will debut with brand new software that combines the company’s Android-based system called Oxygen OS with Oppo Color OS following the merger of the two companies. The new software, says the head of OnePlus, combines the speed and smoothness of Oxygen OS with the stability of Color OS and its rich range of features.
According to 91mobiles, OnePlus would announce the OnePlus ten and OnePlus 10 Pro in late January or early February instead of the usual March demo. If this happened before or just before the announcement of the Galaxy S22, it could surely steal the show from Samsung.
Of course, this also depends a lot on the specifications of the OnePlus news and what numbers will be on the price tag. The price of the OnePlus 9 was no longer so far from Samsung.
