OnePlus 10 Pro will come to the US with significant downgrades
OnePlus further explains the charging capability of the OnePlus 10 Pro. The article has been updated to reflect new information.
OnePlus has unveiled details of its upcoming flagship before the global launch on March 31.
The OnePlus 10 Pro will have a downgraded 65W wired charging for North American units.
Wireless charging will remain at 50W.
We’re just a few days away from the global launch of the OnePlus 10 Pro and OnePlus has decided to detail its latest flagship in a forum post on Monday. The new phone will be almost identical in and out of variants released in China earlier this year. However, US models will come with significant charging downgrades.
According to the forum post, OnePlus 10 Pro units in Europe and India will support 80W SuperVOOC charging, while the North American variant will only support 65W. It essentially maintains the same charging speed as the OnePlus’s previous flagship phone. Asked about the decision, a staff member from the OnePlus Forum explained why US models are getting lower charging speeds:
“In North America, the OnePlus 10 Pro supports 65W SUPERVOOC. Because the 80W SUPERVOOC does not currently support 110 or 120-volt AC power – the standard for power outlets in this region.”
U.S. It’s a bit annoying that the charging speed won’t get hit. However, OnePlus further explains that charging the 10 Pro remains “the fastest standard for charging in North America”, with the phone’s 5,000mAh battery being able to top up in just 34 minutes. U.S. It is much faster than the speed offered by the best Android phones sold in, especially Samsung, which caps the latest flagship at 45W.
Fortunately, wireless charging doesn’t seem to be affected. OnePlus has also made it clear that the OnePlus 10 Pro will retain the fast 50W AirVOOC, which can fully charge the phone in 47 minutes. The US-bound 10 Pro will have the same Smart Charge Protection feature as the other variants.
OnePlus also highlights other features and features, such as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, a custom cooling system, and software optimizations made in OxygenOS 12.1. Hopefully, this together will allow the OnePlus 10 Pro to live up to its claim of “20% improved performance and 30% improved power efficiency” while avoiding the thermal problems of the Galaxy S22.
In the meantime, you can still reserve the OnePlus 10 Pro for a free pair of OnePlus Buds Pro and get quick shipping.
