    Hello everyone,

    While the fate of OnePlus 9T still remains undecided, the 9RT made a brief appearance at the rumour mill last week. But that's not what we are talking about today. Tech moves faster than you think and whilst you're still caught between the uncertain 9T and a rumoured 9RT, there are already talks of the OnePlus 10. There are not one but two polar claims about the design of the OP10. While Dutch designer Jermaine Smit has imagined the OnePlus 10 in a bold new design, Twitter leaker Yogesh Brar claims the OnePlus 10 will follow the footsteps of the OnePlus 9 and offer a “polished look” while retaining a design similar to its predecessor.

    Jermaine’s OnePlus 10 Concept

    It is too early to discuss the core essentials but that didn't stop Concept Creator (Jermaine Smit) from publishing stunning concept renders of what he is claiming could be the OnePlus 10. Without delving into the details I'd like to ask you, what do you think of this design? If this is what the OnePlus 10 ends up looking like, how interested would you be?

    The images show a OnePlus 10 Pro with a Bezel-less curved display, as you'd expect on a pro model. But the punch hole is nowhere to be seen, Jermaine has designed this concept with an under-display camera so there isn't much to see on the front here. However, it's the back where things get exciting. First off, you witness the return of the circular camera design (reminiscent of the Oreo on the 7T) in a dual-camera configuration (which is quite odd) - one wide and the other ultrawide. Surprisingly enough, there is now Xenon flash in place of the traditional LED flash, positioned alongside the dual cameras. The Hasselblad branding has moved outside of the camera island and is now stamped on a leather finish back, just below the camera bump. Jermaine is also anticipating the under development Bionic lens (T-lens) having faster autofocus capabilities and a super panoramic camera to debut with the OnePlus 10 Pro.

    Jermaine also posted a 1 minute 23 seconds long video that shows you the concept from all angles. Real or not, the quality of rendering is highly commendable.

    A small disclaimer before you proceed:

    The renders are created by the concept creator and were published on the online magazine LetsGoDigital. These are, as it clearly states, “concept images for illustrative purposes only”. So you need to consider them as a mere creative creation from a concept artist. It is also worth noting that the OnePlus 10 is expected to be released only in late Q1 2022, so nothing is set in stone yet. A lot can and will change, but this is a good starting point to talk about what you expect from the 10th OnePlus flagship and where these renders stand.

    Yogesh Brar’s Claim

    Twitter leaker @heyitsyogesh recognised for several OnePlus leaks (which turned out to be true), recently tweeted that OnePlus is working on the 10 series which will be pitched as “polished series 9 models”. In addition, he also claims that there are new Nord devices and accessories in the works which shall be announced at the next launch event. While there isn't any clear information about the upcoming Nord devices or accessories, he has claimed that the design of the OnePlus 10 will be similar to the OnePlus 9.


    That leaves us with two quite polarized directions, OnePlus 10 as either a complete redesign or, as Yogesh claims, a polished version of the 9 series. What do you think, and more importantly, what are you rooting for? A bold new design or a polished OnePlus 9 Series look?

    You know is nice concept and if looks like that and not have problems with overheat then I will bought it.
    Camera in middle is best choice 9Pro has in corner and is nightmare when you holding phone for pictures always my finger go there 😂
    Also if will have hide front camera is big plus. And if edge screen must be same from 9pro there is to small edge is like flat screen that I will prefer.
    Nice concept unlikely they never will do that 😂

    I'm thinking the polished series 9 design will be more accurate. Although i'm all for a design change (if done correctly) i'm not a fan of Jermaine's design, more particular the rounded camera module on the back. That said, the quality of those renders is indeed great tho.

    The Cute baby ghost Camera panel. Looks good to be honest. Reducing the no of cameras to 2 is a good idea. Better to have 2 useful camera than having 4 useless ones.
    Lack of punchhole is a big 👍. ( A realization of Concept 1 ??? )Mi Mix 4 though is having the same design ( may be )
    Undoubtedly, the quality of rendering is 👌👌👌.

    I just love the new design looks pretty attractive than the 7t one and also more classy.I honestly loved it.
    P.S. - I was bored of those top corner similar designs like in every single smartphone.

    I am expecting "A Bold New" design but NOT a circular camera setup at the back. Something new!!!
