Earlier this year, OnePlus took the wraps off of its upcoming flagship in the OnePlus 10 Pro. The company subsequently launched the device in China, offering two different color options with Volcanic Black and Emerald Forest. Now, OnePlus is introducing an all-new color option called Panda White, and it’s only available in China through Oppo’s online storefront (via PlayfulDroid).
As the name suggests, the back glass of the phone is completely white, while the frame is silver, and has a black camera module. The phone is also being sold separately from the rest of the 10 Pro lineup, as OnePlus is calling this the “Extreme Edition. Pre-orders for this version are already available, but the phone won’t actually go on sale until March 1.
Given that this version is “Extreme”, the specs are slightly different from what you’ll find across the other OnePlus 10 Pro models. This version still sports the same 6.7-inch QHD+ LTPO display, complete with a 120Hz variable refresh rate. We also still have the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 powering the phone, but coupled with that chipset, you’ll get 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, compared to the 8GB / 128GB combination found on the base model OnePlus 10 Pro.
It should come as no surprise that this version of OnePlus’ 2022 flagship also comes with a higher cost, as pre-orders are available now for 5,799 Yuan, or about $920. We’ve seen OnePlus make similar moves in years past, but there’s a big question mark surrounding the availability of this phone.
While the OnePlus 10 Pro has been available in China since January, the company has not provided any information as to when the phone will be available here in the States or other markets. If you head over to the OnePlus 10 Pro landing page, you’ll be greeted with a message that says “Open Sale starts this Spring”. This lines up with previous rumors of a March or April launch, but it would still be nice to have a better idea as to when the phone will be available.
Additionally, this new Extreme Edition has yet to be added to the OnePlus 10 Pro landing page on the U.S. website. Instead, all you find are the aforementioned black and “Forest” colors shown off. It remains to be seen whether the Panda 10 Pro will be made available elsewhere, or if this will remain a China exclusive.
