The OnePlus 10 Pro gets a more advanced RAW mode as well as an ultrawide-format camera that is wider.

OnePlus has released more information about the coming OnePlus 10 Pro and this time, with an emphasis on camera specs. If you’re hoping to get many hardware improvements in this second-gen partnership with Hasselblad It appears that you’ll have to wait -except for an ultrawide upgrade, these updates are mostly software-based.

For a quick recap of the basic camera specifications that we discovered earlier this week The OnePlus 10 will offer a triple rear camera — possibly with the exact 48-megapixel main camera, ultrawide 50-megapixel, and the 8-megapixel telephoto setup that was used the previous year. The front camera is 32 megapixels that’s a substantial increase in resolution from the 9 and 9 Pro’s selfie camera of 16 megapixels.

An important update is the inclusion of a shooting option called RAW Plus which, just like the ProRAW format from Apple offers the advantages of computational photography with RAW images. In the past, OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro had a RAW mode that was traditional and this is a welcome upgrade for people who wish to experiment with rich data RAW files , while also maintaining the advanced camera’s image processing capabilities that smartphones are so adept at.

The three cameras on the rear are able to be used with the new Hasselblad Pro Mode to control the settings for exposure and also shoot RAW files in 12-bit format. We loved the user-friendly Pro Mode on the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro We’re excited to try the most recent version. There’s a brand new manual video recording option, too named Movie Mode. It allows control over ISO as well as shutter speeds, as also access to the LOG shooting format that allows color grading after capture.

The nine and the 9 Pro cameras had color-tuning by Hasselblad and OnePlus continues to rely on this aspect of the collaboration. In this version that it has incorporated the company’s (also Oppo’s) “Billion Color Solution” and Hasselblad’s color research that adds 10 bit color to each of the three cameras on the rear. It should allow for more smooth gradients in color in pictures as long as you’re viewing them on a display capable of showing all the colors.

On the hardware front there’s a newly developed ultrawide sensor that has an extremely wide 150-degree field of view. It’s between 5 and 5mm in terms of 35mm. If you’re looking to truly create a dramatic photo, this lens could be used with a brand new fisheye feature. To get a narrower view it is possible to use the ultrawide in 110 degrees of view that is more like the 14mm equivalent available on lenses like the 9 or 9 Pro and utilizes AI distortion reduction.

Another hardware update to be aware of: it appears like OnePlus has dropped its monochrome camera. This was a low-resolution camera that was used in previous models, to aid in taking black and white images. It was claimed however. We tried to determine if it was having any effect when it came to monochrome images, and my coworker Jon Porter has bemoaned its existence for years, and described it in various ways being “baffling” and “pointless.” The renderings from 10 Pro that we’ve seen so far 10 Pro that we’ve seen up to now show three good-looking cameras, along with flashes, but no small monochrome camera in view. If so, goodbye, monochrome camera; we don’t even know what you did.

Other than cameras, what we’ve learned about the OnePlus 10 Pro so far isn’t surprising in any way. It’ll have the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 chip with a 120Hz LCD as well as a fiftyW of wireless charging right in the same vein as the previous OnePlus flagships, and ticking all of the “2022 Android flagship” boxes. The device is scheduled to go on sale the 11th of January in China and will be made available to different regions later in the year.
