The front design of the OnePlus 10 Pro was revealed in a new teaser before its official release. The smartphone appears to have a curved edge screen, similar to the OnePlus 9 Pro. The OnePlus 10 Pro is also expected to debut as the first phone to run on ColorOS 12.1. Although the launch of the new OnePlus phone is still a week away, the Chinese company continued its trend of creating hype for its next-generation flagship by advertising its features on social media.

To reveal the front design of the OnePlus 10 Pro, the OnePlus has published an image on Weibo that gives us a clear view of the phone. It appears to have narrow bezels on the left and right sides and a curved design. The OnePlus 10 Pro also appears to have a thinner chin and a higher screen-to-body ratio than we get in the OnePlus 9 Pro.

Furthermore, the OnePlus 10 Pro appears with a perforated screen design, where the selfie camera is positioned on the upper left side. This is identical to last year’s models including OnePlus 9 Pro and OnePlus 8 Pro.

Some previous teaser images displayed the OnePlus 10 Pro on the back. The phone appears to have triple rear cameras in a square module.

In addition to revealing the front design of the OnePlus 10 Pro, the company has confirmed that the smartphone will run on Oppo’s custom ColorOS 12.1 out-of-the-box. The new skin will include Omoji – Oppo’s answer to Apple’s Animoji and Samsung’s AR Emoji. The feature essentially uses software algorithms to capture the user’s face and create their 3D avatar. It was introduced in ColorOS 12 last year.

OnePlus 10 Pro also has software optimizations to deliver a distinct user experience.

Notably, ColorOS 12.1 may be limited to OnePlus 10 Pro in China, as the phone is caused by having OxygenOS 12 in global markets.

OnePlus is hosting the launch of the OnePlus 10 Pro in China on Jan. 11, the company confirmed last week.
