OnePlus 10: will he be the first top with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1?

The OnePlus 10 are coming, and in the midst of the many doubts about their characteristics CEO Pete Lau has intervened to set a certainty

Not a year goes by without a great expectation preceding the arrival of the top of the range OnePlus, always among the most anticipated of the Android landscape. So around OnePlus 10 and OnePlusĀ 10 Pro there is already a large "crowd" of rumors that try to anticipate as many technical features as possible.

This time, however, to move was the CEO Pete Lau, who took the floor to announce the presence of the latest House Qualcomm, the recent chip Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Stop the rumors, then: the chip of the top range 2022 will be part of the technical equipment of the next flagship OnePlus. Not that there were many doubts, however, since the company has always been very careful to have on its "top" the most powerful chips on the market, along with the fastest memories and the best displays. But the confirmation on the chip of OnePlus 10 fixes at least one certainty on their account, and can only be welcomed.

OnePlus 10, will he be the first?

To reassemble the picture around OnePlus 10 and 10 Pro and understand if they will be the first top of the range with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 we must fix at least one "certainty". The quotation marks are due to the fact that, at the moment, there are few certainties, so you have to take for good what emerged from the rumor.

We will take for good then what reported by rumors, namely the fact that the OnePlus 10 will arrive in January. If that's the case, we'll have to see if the company will make the two available a few weeks later or right after the presentation. In the first hypothesis, it seems difficult that OnePlus 10 and 10 Pro could be the first with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in light of the fact that there will be several smartphones to have it: some of them could arrive as early as January, others - it is said - even in December.

In the second hypothesis, the one for which the OnePlus 10 will be official and available in January, then the chances that they could be the first to be purchased with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 are more concrete, despite rumors that at first the two top of the range OnePlus could be marketed only in China, and then also in international markets.

In short, that of the OnePlus 10 is a story yet to be written, but the company that over the years has accustomed fans to a mantra that sounds like "speed before everything" could burn the competition and arrive first with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

OnePlus 10, what does it look like

Riscretions have distributed more information on the OnePlus 10 Pro's account, which is expected to have, in addition to Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, a 6.7-inch Quad HD+ AMOLED screen with 120 Hz refresh rate, 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage, both of the fastest types on the market.

The collaboration with Hasselblad will continue, which will help the performance of the cameras: the main one is expected to be 48 megapixels, the ultra wide-angle 50 MP while the telephoto zoom lens will be 8 MP.
