The OnePlus 10 Pro is finally about to get its global launch. For those keeping track, it was first unveiled for China in January, and at MWC 2022 in February, the company confirmed it would land elsewhere in March, and now it’s almost here.
The official global reveal is slated for March 31, but there’s obviously not much more to know as the design and specs of the OnePlus 10 Pro have already been revealed.
However, there are still a few things we are waiting to learn, and we’ve outlined them below.
1. The price:
This is probably the biggest remaining question about the OnePlus 10 Pro: how much it will cost. We know it starts in China at 4,699 Yuan, which is about $740 / £560 / AU$990, but we don’t expect exact conversions.
Perhaps more convenient is the price of the OnePlus 9 Pro, as it started at £829 (about $969, AU$1,250) for 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. That model was not available in the US, however, where you could only get the 12GB/256GB model, which cost $1,069 / £929 (about AU$1,400).
In any case, it’s possible that the OnePlus 10 Pro will have a similar price, but for now we really don’t know.
2. The release date

We know that the OnePlus 10 Pro will get its global unveiling on March 31, and you’ll be able to pre-order it from then on, but that’s not when it ships, and we’re not sure what date that will be yet. It will probably be at least a week later, and possibly even longer.
So while you can probably get your hands on it in the foreseeable future, we don’t know exactly when yet.
3. The RAM and Storage
Technically, we know the RAM and storage amounts for the OnePlus 10 Pro, or rather, we know the amounts in China, but the configurations may vary a bit elsewhere.
In China, you can get a OnePlus 10 Pro with 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage and 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage and 12GB of RAM, or 512GB of storage and 12GB of RAM.
That’s quite a few different options, so we wouldn’t expect additional options elsewhere, but it’s possible that some of them won’t be offered, or that only a few regions will get a few (much like the US doesn’t get as many configurations of the OnePlus 9 Pro as it does. the UK did).
Even in the UK you can only get the OnePlus 9 Pro with 128GB storage and 8GB RAM or 256GB storage and 12GB RAM so it’s possible that the OnePlus 10 Pro’s capabilities reflect that, but we just don’t. know.
4. Whether we get the Extreme Edition

We mentioned the storage capacities above, but the OnePlus 10 Pro’s best storage capacity – the one at 12 GB / 512 GB – is actually a special model called the OnePlus 10 Pro Extreme Edition.
This comes in a Panda White shade, in which the other versions are not available, but is otherwise the same phone.
So will we get the Extreme Edition worldwide or will we be limited to lower capacities and the choice of Volcanic Black or Emerald Forest shades? At the moment we don’t know for sure.
