OnePlus could launch the OnePlus 10 series sooner than expected. The Chinese smartphone giant is likely to launch the next flagship series in January or February 2022, as per previous reports. This is earlier than the usual upgrade cycle, where the company announces its new flagship in March or April. The move is said to be taken to compete against the Samsung Galaxy S22 series, which is rumoured to launch in February next year. Tipster Max Jambor has shared more details around the OnePlus 10 Pro global and China launch timeline. Let’s take a look at the OnePlus 10 Pro launch details, specs, and other features.
