A patent fuels speculation about a possible OnePlus 10 Ultra release

Written by admin

A while ago, a leak speculated that at least one more OnePlus flagship is in the works this year. And while tipsters are somewhat divided on the name of this mysterious device, we now have a new potential piece of information about it.

A new patent shows an upcoming premium OnePlus smartphone. First spotted by IT-home, the patent was filed by OnePlus with the Chinese CNIPA Patent Authority. The information was then further reported by Android Authority in a dedicated article.

The patent reveals two crucial pieces of information. First, it reveals that the device will have a periscope camera. This means that the handset will have an advanced camera module, which is a definite feature of premium OnePlus smartphones.

However, there is one dead giveaway that this is indeed a future OnePlus flagship. Namely, the fact that the device has a slider for alerts. This is a feature that OnePlus has now limited to only its high-end models.

Overall, the design of the cryptic handset is very similar to that of another flagship from OnePlus – the OnePlus 10 Pro. Therefore, the chances of this being the highly anticipated OnePlus 10 Ultra are quite high. The other possibility is that it could be the OnePlus 10T. However, renders show that the 10T does not have an alert slider.

It should be noted that this patent does not necessarily imply an impending release. For all we know, this could be a down the line device. In any case, this patent offers contradictory information – previous reports indicated that we would not receive a OnePlus 10 Ultra this year.

In the end, two things are beyond any reasonable doubt. Firstly, OnePlus will release a new flagship this year. Second, it can be the one shown in the patent.
