OnePlus 10R with Dimensity 9000 tipped for Q2 2022 launch

24 January 2022 0

OnePlus kicked off 2022 with the launch of its flagship of the year i.e. OnePlus 10 Pro. The phone debuted in China with a planned global release in the coming months. This was an early launch for the flagship as the company is known to release a new flagship during the second quarter. A new report from Android Central has thrown some light on the reasons behind the move and the company's plans for the future.

The report reveals that OnePlus has two more flagship models lined up for release in Q2 2022. These will include the standard OnePlus 10 and an all-new OnePlus 10R. The latter would be the newest member of the "R" series that currently has the OnePlus 9R and OnePlus 9RT. The interesting bit is that the company will use a MediaTek chipset for the upcoming "R" model.

The OnePlus 10R is reported to be powered by the Dimensity 9000 processor. It has used MediaTek processors in the budget and mid-range Nord models but this is the first time we will see a OnePlus flagship without a Qualcomm chipset. Dimensity 9000 is the first true Android flagship chipset from MediaTek. It is a 4nm chipset and is claimed to deliver the same level of performance as Qualcomm's Snap 8 Gen 1 processor.

The report further reveals that the OnePlus 10R launch will be limited to Asian markets, specifically China and India. This is because Dimensity 9000 supports only Sub-6GHz 5G bands. Since the U.S. carriers mainly rely on mmWave bands for delivering 5G connectivity, it would not make sense to launch the phone in the United States.

Lastly, the OnePlus 10R is tipped to sport an AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. There will be multiple configuration options starting at 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. The smartphone will make an appearance in the market during Q2 2022 with slim chances of availability outside the Asian region.
