We’ll probably hear about OxygenOS 12 at the launch event – that is, OnePlus’ next version of its Android 12 fork.

This is importnat to all OnePlus fans as the update could come to some older phones from the brand too – so any new updates might roll out to more devices over time.

The teaser we’ve shared above shows loads of icons like a games controller, music note, paintbrush and more – we don’t actually think this means all these features will get changes, possibly more that the app symbols themselves will change.

If you’re a big tech fan, you might want to check out some of the news stories we’ve posted this morning while you wait for the OnePlus event.

Oh, one thing to point out.

We got the OnePlus 10 Pro has 80W Charging, and it does – unless you live in the US. The version of the phone there only has 65W powering. The company has confirmed this already.

We should probably look at the OnePlus 10 Pro itself at some point, right? The thing has already been launched in China, so we know all about it.

The OnePlus has a 6.7-inch 2K 120Hz display, broken up by a punch-hole cut-out for the front camera. You can see the design of the phone above.

The cameras are a 48MP main, 50MP ultrawide and 8MP telephoto – oh, and there’s a 32MP snapper on the front for selfies. That’s 138MP in total, if you like the math.

The phone has a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Chipset and a 5,000mAh battery, and charges at 80W wired and 50W wireless.

You’ve actually been able to pre-order the OnePlus 10 Pro for a while.

Since we know all the specs for the phone, you might be interested in pre-ordering it now, but we’d recommend waiting a bit – we’ve no idea how much the phone costs just yet.

Though we’re not expecting it today, we have heard Rumors of a new member to the OnePlus 10 range coming later in the year.

This is the OnePlus 10 Ultra which a few leakers about – details are light on the ground but it sounds like it’ll come towards the end of 2022, and possibly with a rear display too.

As we said, this almost certainly won’t show up today.

We mentioned in the introduction to this live blog that the OnePlus 10 isn’t coming – Let’s dig into that.

At MWC 2022, an annual tech show which took place in late February, TechRadar attended a OnePlus briefing where the company confirmed this fact. It told us that the OnePlus 10 series would only have one phone.

That also implies that there won’t be a OnePlus 10T, but that could be a case of ‘us reading between the lines too much’.

It sounds like the OnePlus 10 was dropped so that the company could focus more on its Nord series of mid-Rangers, so we could see this a phone that’s a OnePlus 10 in spirit, but not name.

In our own OnePlus One review, our Tester gave the phone four stars out of five, calling it “amazing value for money.”

One of the cons in the review is “Non-removable battery” which, several years later, is something you couldn’t imagine. Not because non-removable batteries have disappeared, but because they’re completely the norm.

While today’s event is mainly about the OnePlus 10 Pro, we think they’re going to talk about the OnePlus One too.

That Tweet is our main reason for saying that, and the company has similar adverts on its website saying the same.

This could just simply be a Celebration of ten generations of OnePlus phone, since there is a nice round number, but it’s not quite that simple. There was no OnePlus Four, and the OnePlus One is only eight years old.

But there is a nice round number, like we said. So we’ll have to wait and see.

Welcome to our OnePlus 10 Pro live blog!

The event is hours and hours away – it’s later in the day than we generally see Chinese phone companies host their launch events – so we can have a nice slow cadence for our posts for a bit.
