OnePlus 10R hands-on review
The OnePlus 10R is the newest entrant in OnePlus’ mid-range R-series. Known as the OnePlus Ace in China, the 10R is essentially the Realme GT Neo 3 but with minor changes.
The OnePlus 10R is based on the MediaTek Dimensity 8100 platform. It features a large 120Hz display and a triple camera system on the back. The phone is also launching in two variants, one with a 5000mAh battery and 80W charger and the other with a 4500mAh battery and 150W charger.
The OnePlus 10R is currently only available in India. With a fairly competitive price of around $509, the 10R starts at a slightly lower price than its predecessor, the OnePlus 9RT. However, the market is fairly competitive at this price range, so we’ll just have to see how the OnePlus 10R fares.
