An fascinating new leak as we speak provides us a treasure trove of data concerning OnePlus’ plans and general technique. To recap, the corporate’s new market segmentation works like this: the numbered collection is the flagship line, the R-branded fashions are focused at regional markets, Nord and Nord CE units are the mid-rangers, and Nord N telephones are concentrating on the entry-level.
Talking of R fashions, the OnePlus 9RT simply launched in India as a successor of kinds to the 9R, however apparently there’s going to be a 10R too later this 12 months. Not solely that, however world markets are seemingly getting a vanilla OnePlus 10 alongside the 10 Professional which was already unveiled for China.
Whereas the ten and 10 Professional (to be introduced globally in April, allegedly) are powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, the OnePlus 10R will go along with the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 as a substitute.
After a very long time of sticking with solely Qualcomm chipsets, OnePlus first went the MediaTek route with the Nord 2, and now that the Taiwanese chip maker has a correct flagship SoC, it is able to induct that into the flagship collection, even when the 10R shall be confined to some areas solely.
In accordance with this rumor, the rationale for OnePlus not going with the Dimensity 9000 within the 10 or 10 Professional has to do with North America’s love of mmWave 5G and the MediaTek chip’s lack of assist for that. The OnePlus 10R is headed to China and India with a 120 Hz AMOLED show, and “no less than” 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
The OnePlus 10R must be in shops in these markets on the finish of Q2 (learn: June). The delay has to do with the corporate wanting to present the 9RT some room to breathe. This cellphone was initially deliberate to launch in India in October, however points with OxygenOS 12 pushed that to this month.
