Back in February we reported on a leaked design patent that appeared to show an up-specced OnePlus 10 Pro with a rear periscope and small sub-screen and now the rumor mill provides an even more exciting leak regarding the alleged upcoming phone. According to Yogesh Brar (opens in new tab), a well-known leaker with a decent track record, the OnePlus 10 Ultra will feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus chipset.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus chipset

Assuming this phone rumor (opens in new tab) is correct, equipping the OnePlus 10 Ultra with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus chipset is big news as it’s an upgrade to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 found in the Galaxy S22 Ultra (opens in new tab) (and certainly so in regions where the S22 Ultra comes with the Exynos 2200 chipset). Essentially, the OnePlus 10 Ultra would overthrow the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra as most powerful phone on the market.

Within his tweet, Brar writes there is a “focus on cameras” for the OnePlus 10 Ultra but doesn’t go into any detail. However, delving into the Twitter abyss, Brar replies to a tweet from one of his 9,203k followers, saying; “Can confirm periscope right now, rest at a later time.” This ties in well with the leaked design patent (opens in new tab) which shows a periscope – which we would hope would be a 5x lens.
