Before the announcement of the OnePlus 10T, some reliable tipsters had claimed that it will be the last flagship phone of the year 2022. It appears that they were mainly talking about the global market. The reason is that a new leak from a reliable source, Digital Chat Station, says that a flagship phone from OnePlus will come out in China by the end of this year.
The US-based chipset maker Qualcomm is expected to unveil the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform in November this year. A couple of Chinese smartphone makers are likely to announce their first flagship phones with the SDG2 chip soon after it comes out.
According to rumors, Xiaomi will unveil the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2-powered Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro in November. According to the tipster, the OnePlus flagship equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will also debut this year.
At the beginning of this year, OnePlus unveiled the OnePlus 10 Pro 5G in China a couple of months before its global launch. Hence, it appears that the device will be succeeded by the OnePlus 11 Pro 5G by the end of 2022. The tipster claimed that the brand would focus on design and performance on its next flagship.
Unfortunately, the tipster did not share any other information on the upcoming OnePlus flagship. Considering that it could be a Pro-branded model, it may come with Hasselblad camera optimizations. The rumor mill is expected to leak more information about the upcoming OnePlus flagship in the coming weeks.
