The very first OnePlus 10 Pro images have surfaced to reveal the phone’s design, courtesy of Zouton and @OnLeaks. Two images got shared here, and these seem to be CAD-based renders, which is something we’re used to seeing when it comes to @OnLeaks.

The OnePlus 10 Pro design will be Samsung-inspired, kind of

That being said, the phone’s back side is shown here, well, the upper portion of its back. What you will immediately notice here, is that the rear camera island design is kind of Samsung-inspired.

It basically comes from the metallic frame, as if it grew from there, as on the Galaxy S21 series handsets. Based on how it looks, though, we’re probably looking at glass here, not metal. The Galaxy S21 series camera island is encased in metal.

You’ll notice three rather large camera sensors here, and an LED flash. OnePlus’ branding is present on the back of the device, and the material on the back also seems to be quite interesting.

OnePlus may use vegan leather on the back of its upcoming flagship

At first, I thought this is just glass, with an interesting pattern on the back. Well, when I zoomed in, I realized this could be vegan leather, at least by the looks of it. Vivo and OPPO, OnePlus’ sister companies, have been using this material in their flagships.

Vegan leather is an excellent way of keeping the device less slippery, which is something phones need these days. The vast majority of flagships these days are not only large, but they’re also bars of soap at the same time, basically.

This sure is a different design compared to the OnePlus 9 series. Do take this with a grain of salt, though, as this leak does come quite early. The OnePlus 10 series is not expected to arrive until mid-2022.

I’m sure that many of you will dislike this design, though it’s an interesting change of pace. The rear camera design may be Samsung-inspired, to a degree, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The rest of the phone looks completely different, and kind of unique.

Now, Zouton also shared expected specs for this phone. The OnePlus 10 Pro is expected to feature a 6.7-inch QHD+ FLuid AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate. This will be an LTPO panel.

A 5,000mAh battery has also been mentioned, as have both 128GB and 256GB storage variants. The phone is said to measure 163.2 x 73.6 x 8.7mm.
