OnePlus 10 Pro with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, Hasselblad camera teased in Volcanic Black and Emerald Forest colors ahead of launch on Jan 11

Update: January 4th, 2022 – OnePlus CEO has official posted the promo, after the leak last week. This also shows the Hasselblad camera, and the tag line ‘Capture Every Horizon’.

It also shows the phone in Volcanic Black and Emerald Forest colors in matte finish.

Regarding the colours, OnePlus said:

Gaze at the Volcanic Black finish, and you’ll feel pulled into an endless sea of sand dunes under the moonlit sky, with special micro-crystals reminding you of the glittering grains of sand. Through faint light and a shadow gradation effect, the illusion feels more than just skin deep and feels incredibly smooth in your hand. Its black surface quietly screams to be touched.

Emerald Forest features our signature anti-glare glass on its rear that, just like Volcanic Black, is resistant to fingerprints for a look that remains stunning no matter how long you hold the OnePlus 10 Pro. The glass has been etched to create a finish that sparkles when viewed from different angles, mimicking the first ray of the morning sun as it transforms the suspended dew into shimmering crystals.
