Amped up camera performance with second-generation Hasselblad Camera for Mobile
When OnePlus partnered with legendary camera manufacturer Hasselblad and introduced Hasselblad Camera for Mobile on the OnePlus 9 series, it was big news. With this, OnePlus brought Hasselblad’s eight-decade-plus lineage of camera expertise to OnePlus users and redefined our expectations of the smartphone camera. The OnePlus 10 Pro’s second-generation Hasselblad Camera for Mobile takes camera performance even further with OnePlus Billion Color Solution, a new 150° ultra-wide camera, and much more.
OnePlus Billion Color Solution allows Natural Color Calibration with Hasselblad to be applied to over one billion colors, meaning each of the OnePlus 10 Pro’s three rear cameras—the main, telephoto, and ultra-wide camera—is capable of shooting in full 10-bit colour. As a result, the device processes 64 times more color than smartphones that shoot in 8-bit color.
Further, the OnePlus 10 Pro captures photos using the DCI-P3 color gamut, which offers 25% more color coverage than the sRGB color gamut used by other smartphones. If you take a photo through the OnePlus 10 Pro, you would see that they exhibit more delicate and pleasing colors where the color banding is dramatically reduced, leaving you with smoother transitions between each colour. With this, the latest technology gives OnePlus users a chance to experience the most precise colors and capture the most stunning shots.
The widest of shots with the widest ultra-wide camera
Always wanted to capture utra-wide, life-like shots with your smartphone? Well, with the OnePlus 10 Pro’s ultra-wide camera, precisely the widest ultra-wide camera ever on a OnePlus device, you can capture more in each shot. OnePlus 10 Pro’s new ultra-wide camera offers a 150° field of view that lets you take photos that are four times wider than those captured with 120° ultra-wide cameras on other smartphones. The feature also supports a Fisheye mode that replicates the look of traditional fisheye lenses, providing a fresh perspective when shooting. By default, the OnePlus 10 Pro’s ultra-wide camera captures photos with a 110° field of view, complete with AI distortion correction. The sensor’s 150° and Fisheye modes are accessible via a dedicated tab within the Camera application.
Along with the ultra-wide shot feature, the OnePlus 10 Pro also comes with Long Exposure that allows you to quickly and easily capture long exposure images with or without a tripod. The result? Silky smooth waterfalls and creative light paintings with the tap of a button. Long exposure images can be captured via the ‘More’ setting within the OnePlus 10 Pro’s Camera application.
48 MP Sony IMX789 sensor on the Main Camera to up your photography game
One of the major highlights of the OnePlus 10 Pro is its custom-built 48 MP Sony IMX789 sensor, one that is exclusive to OnePlus devices. Just like the OnePlus 10 Pro’s ultra-wide camera, the 1/1.43 inch primary sensor shoots in full 10-bit color. The OnePlus 10 Pro’s Sony IMX789 sensor also benefits from tuning upgrades that improve noise reduction, resolution, and dynamic range
The OnePlus 10 Pro also comes with an 8 MP telephoto camera offering a 3.3× optical zoom that takes photos in full 10-bit color. This can capture images at up to 30× digital zoom, complete with a new super resolution algorithm that improves the clarity of photos shot with digital zoom. Lastly, the sensor comes with optical image stabilization (OIS) that helps to eliminate blur and shakiness from photos.
Take the best selfies with 32MP Sony IMX615 sensor
Selfie Camera Second-Generation Hasselblad Camera for Mobile The OnePlus 10 Pro comes with an improved front-facing camera, allowing you to take even better selfies. The device’s 32 MP Sony IMX615 sensor offers double the megapixels and a 27% wider field of view compared to the Sony IMX471 found in the OnePlus 9 series. Additionally, the OnePlus 10 Pro’s front camera supports Nightscape mode, allowing you to take bright and clear selfies in dim environments. The 32 MP front-facing sensor benefits from skin color calibration, ensuring skin tones appear more natural in every shot.
Taking image innovation to the next level with the Second-Generation Hasselblad Pro Mode

This feature takes Hasselblad feature to the next level as the mode can be used on all three rear cameras—the primary, telephoto, and ultra-wide camera—allowing you to adjust parameters of your shot, ranging from ISO to white balance. To make it even better, Hasselblad Pro Mode enables the OnePlus 10 Pro’s rear camera system to capture photos in up to 12-bit RAW—that offers more information and greater levels of dynamic range—complete with Hasselblad Natural Color Solution for Mobile. Hasselblad Pro Mode on the OnePlus 10 Pro boasts a new feature called RAW+ that lets you shoot in up to 12-bit RAW while retaining all computational photography elements from the OnePlus 10 Pro, such as improved dynamic range and noise reduction. Delivering higher quality photo files, RAW+ provides you with more creative freedom when editing your shots.

Serenity captures the look and feel of Yin Chao’s iconic fashion photography and is best used for portraits, while Radiance recreates Ben Thomas’ style of hyperreality, resulting in stylized shots made to be shared.
