We've been hearing about OnePlus working on its next-generation budget flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 10R, for quite a while now. Previous rumors have suggested that OnePlus will not debut the OnePlus 10R alongside the OnePlus 10 Pro next week. Instead, the smartphone is expected to launch in May 2022. A new leak from Yogesh Brar has now revealed key specifications of the upcoming OnePlus smartphone.
On the front, the OnePlus 10R is expected to come with a 6.7-inch FHD+ E4 AMOLED display that will support refresh rates of up to 120Hz. Though the previous rumors had suggested that the OnePlus 10R will come with a MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset, Brar claims that OnePlus is now planning to ship the device with the newly launched MediaTek Dimensity 8100.
