OnePlus 10 Pro front design teased ahead of January 11 launch, China model confirmed to have ColorOS 12.1



Ahead of the official launch of the OnePlus 10 Pro, the front design has been revealed in a new teaser. The smartphone appears to have a curved-edge display, which resembles the OnePlus 9 Pro. OnePlus 10 Pro has been introduced as the first phone to run on ColorOS 12.1. Although the launch of the new OnePlus phone is still a week away, the Chinese company continues its trend of creating hype for its next-generation flagships by announcing its features on social media.

To reveal the front design of the OnePlus 10 Pro, OnePlus has posted an image on Weibo that gives us a clear view of the phone. It seems to feature narrow bezels and a curved design on the left and right sides. The OnePlus 10 Pro also appears to have a thinner chin and a higher screen-to-body ratio that we have on the OnePlus 9 Pro.

Furthermore, the OnePlus 10 Pro appears with a hole-punch display design where the selfie camera is located on the top-left. This is similar to last year’s models, which included the OnePlus 9 Pro and OnePlus 8 Pro.

Some of the earlier teaser images showed the OnePlus 10 Pro from behind. The phone seems to have triple rear cameras in a square module.

Along with revealing the front design of the OnePlus 10 Pro, the company has confirmed that the smartphone will run on Oppo’s custom ColorOS 12.1 out-of-the-box. The new skin will include Omoji – Oppo’s answer to Apple’s Animoji and Samsung’s AR Emoji. The feature essentially uses software algorithms to capture the user’s face and create their 3D avatar. It was introduced in ColorOS 12 last year.
