The OnePlus 10 Pro may launch to a global audience in March, according to a fresh tip.
In a rather annoying change to the company’s formerly outward-looking approach, OnePlus announced its latest flagship phone as a China-only release on January 11.
However, the delayed global launch could be set for March. That’s the claim being made by tipster Yogesh Brar.
In continuation to yesterday’s tweet, here a timeline on upcoming OnePlus productsFeb – Nord CE 2 (India)Nord N20 (Europe)March – OnePlus 10 Pro (Global)April – Android 12 rollout with Unified OS.New smart TVs, neckband (ANC), new buds are inbetween the above products.— Yogesh Brar (@heyitsyogesh) January 18, 2022
While it’s irritating that the OnePlus 10 Pro skipped a global launch, it’s worth noting that a March global rollout would be in line with last year’s OnePlus 9 Pro.
One phone that’s very much running late is the OnePlus Nord N20. This would be the follow-up to the OnePlus Nord N10 5G, which was released in November 2020.
We last reported on the phone a year on from its predecessor’s launch, when a new flat-edged design was suggested by an established leaker. The above tweet mentions that the OnePlus Nord N20 is coming to Europe in February, so we could have a new budget smartphone contender to look forward to ahead of the OnePlus 10 Pro.
Notable by its absence in all of the OnePlus information drops of late – both official and unofficial – is any mention of the plain OnePlus 10. Will we be seeing that at the proposed global launch in March?
Given that the OnePlus 10 Pro has already launched – and in a somewhat underwhelming form by early accounts – the status and make-up of its plain baby brother is what’s really piquing out interest right now.
