The OnePlus 10 Ultra is undergoing testing, as shared by tipster Yogesh Brar. OnePlus is said to be working on an “ultra flagship” smartphone that could launch in the second half of this year. When it launches, it will stand taller than the just-released OnePlus 10 Pro in the company’s lineup. Furthermore, Brar mentions that an upcoming series of Oppo smartphones will receive Hasselblad cameras and OnePlus smartphones will receive the MariSilicon X NPU as a result of technology sharing between the two companies.
Insider Yogesh Brar (@heyitsyogesh) shared that an “ultra flagship” OnePlus smartphone is in the works. It is speculated that it will be dubbed the OnePlus 10 Ultra and Brar mentions that the smartphone is currently undergoing engineering verification tests (EVT) at the moment, suggesting it could be released in the coming months. As there is no official confirmation of the existence of the alleged OnePlus 10 Ultra, this information should be treated with caution.
Technology sharing between OnePlus and Oppo is in full swing, the Find X5 series gets Hasselblad treatment and I’m hearing that MariSilicon will be seen on a OnePlus Flagship in the 2nd half of this year.
There are rumors of a OnePlus Ultra flagship in the EVT phase right now.

EVT is performed on prototypes of upcoming smartphones and is usually one of the first test phases a device goes through. After that, the devices undergo design verification tests (TVP) followed by product verification tests (PVT).
Brar also talks about the partnership between Oppo and OnePlus that led to technology sharing between the two Chinese tech companies. Oppo Find X5 series smartphones are said to get Hasselblad treated rear camera setup. On the other hand, Brar also mentions that a flagship smartphone from OnePlus might get Oppo’s MariSilicon X NPU that was released last month. OnePlus’ flagship smartphone may get Oppo’s in-house NPU sometime in the second half of 2022.
Oppo MariSilicon X is a neural processing unit (NPU) that supposedly enhances images for videos and photographs taken using smartphones. It will be manufactured using TSMC’s 6nm process technology and is expected to debut with upcoming Oppo Find X series smartphones in early 2022.
