We’ve heard rumors regarding a supposed OnePlus 10 Ultra phone for a couple of months now, suggesting a device that’s even more impressive than the OnePlus 10 Pro. Now, a prominent leaker has dished out a few more nuggets of information.
Tipster Yogesh Brar has claimed on Twitter that the OnePlus 10 Ultra is moving into the testing phase of its development and that it will have the unannounced Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus chipset. Check out the tweet below.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus SoC is purportedly being built by TSMC and is expected to offer a small but notable speed and efficiency bump over the standard Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 silicon. So the Ultra model should see improved performance over the OnePlus 10 Pro if it’s indeed packing the upcoming chipset.
Brar also claimed that the OnePlus 10 Ultra will “focus on cameras,” although there aren’t any more details in this regard. For what it’s worth, we thought the OnePlus 10 Pro was disappointing when it came to the ultrawide camera and zoom quality. So here’s hoping OnePlus tackles these issues, for one.

He also asserted that the Ultra device will launch in August or September. It looks like we’re in for quite a lengthy wait, then.
Finally, the leaker claimed that OnePlus is working on a phone with the rumored Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset. And when you combine this news with the OnePlus 10 Ultra’s rumored release and rumors of more budget handsets, it looks like the company has a ton of devices in the pipeline.
