Xiaomi recently unveiled its latest flagship, the Xiaomi 12 Pro. But how does it compare to OnePlus’ latest premium phone, the OnePlus 10 Pro?

One of the main advantages of the 12 Pro is that it offers great performance, a stunning screen and a triple camera for less than its main Android rivals, such as the Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus.

But how is it fair to OnePlus’ high-end device. Read on to discover all the major differences and similarities between the two smartphones.

It’s important to keep in mind that we’ve only spent a short amount of time with each device at this point, so some areas, like battery and performance, are harder to judge. We’ll update this comparison when we’ve spent enough time with each device to share our final verdict on each one.

Prices and availability

The Xiaomi 12 Pro is expected to launch in the UK soon, but there is currently no set date or price available in the UK. We do know that the starting price for the Pro is $999, which equates to around £763 / €909 for 8/128GB.

The OnePlus 10 Pro was launched in China in January and it was eventually confirmed that it would also get a European release, although at the moment we don’t know exactly when it will launch in the UK.

The phone starts at RMB 4699 for 8/128 GB in China, which works out to around £558 / €670 / $743. We’re not exactly sure how the price will translate, though. The OnePlus 9 Pro costs £829 for 8/128GB, so it’s likely the phone will get closer to this number, potentially making it more expensive than the Xiaomi.

Design and display

Both Xiaomi 12 Pro have smooth, curved designs and 6.7-inch AMOLED displays with 120Hz refresh rates.

The Xiaomi has a matte finish and rounded edges that combine to form a relatively understated design. It’s not prone to picking up fingerprints and the camera sticks out slightly, but doesn’t look obnoxious like some of its rivals. It comes in gray, purple and blue colors.

The OnePlus also has curved edges and a matte finish, although the green version has a light texture. The camera module is much bigger than the one on the Xiaomi, which won’t be to everyone’s taste, but the phone is certainly not ugly. The phone comes in Volcanic Black and Emerald Forest Green finishes.

The Xiaomi has a 6.73-inch AMOLED DotDisplay with a resolution of 3200 x 1440 and an aspect ratio of 20:9. It has a dynamic refresh rate of 120 Hz, a sampling rate of 480 Hz and support for Dolby Vision and HDR 10+. The screen can hit 1500 nits at maximum brightness and we found it bright, smooth and sharp.

The OnePlus has a similarly sized 6.7-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 3216 x 1440 and an aspect ratio of 20:9, making it very sharp. It has a dynamic refresh rate of 120 Hz, HDR10+ support and can reach up to 1300 nits at its maximum brightness.

Both phones benefit from triple rear cameras with 50-megapixel sensors and 8K video support.

The Xiaomi 12 Pro has three 50-megapixel sensors: a 50-megapixel (f/1.9) wide-angle camera, a 50-megapixel (f/2.2) ultra-wide-angle camera with a 115-degree field of view and a 50-megapixel (f/1.9) telephoto camera.

There’s also a 32MP punch-hole camera in the center of the screen for selfies and support for 8K video recording on the back of the phone.

We found that in daylight the cameras seemed to capture natural shots across all three rear sensors, but they’d have to test them for themselves before giving our final verdict in our full review of the phone.

The OnePlus 10 Pro, meanwhile, uses the 2nd generation Hasselblad Camera for Mobile.

The phone packs a 48-megapixel (f/1.8) wide-angle camera, a 50-megapixel (f/2.2) ultra-wide camera with 150-degree FOV and an 8-megapixel (f/2.4) telephoto camera.

Like the Xiaomi, there’s also a 32-megapixel punch-hole camera in the top-left corner of the screen, along with support for 8K video.

The ultra-wide-angle sensor is particularly interesting here, as it’s up to four times wider than the ultra-wide-angle lenses found on most rival smartphones. This makes it possible to fit more into the frame. The Hasselblad partnership, meanwhile, appears to be mostly software oriented, offering color calibration and an orange shutter that goes back to the brand.

Specifications and Features

In terms of performance, both Xiaomi and OnePlus are powered by the same chipset – Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 with Adreno graphics. Both phones also include 8/12 GB of RAM and 128/256 GB of storage, although the OnePlus also includes a 512 GB option.

Both phones also run on Android 12. The looks will be slightly different as the Xiaomi runs MIUI 13, while the OnePlus runs on ColorOS 12.1.

The Xiaomi 12 Pro has quad speakers with support for Dolby Atmos and SOUND BY Harman Kardon, while the OnePlus has stereo speakers. Neither phone has a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Both phones have large batteries. The Xiaomi has a 4600 mAh battery with support for 120 W Xiaomi HyperCharge wired fast charging, 50 W wireless turbo charging and 10 W reverse wireless charging for when you want to use your earbuds or other wirelessly rechargeable accessories. The phone also includes Xiaomi AdaptiveCharge.

The OnePlus benefits from an even bigger 5000mAh battery, along with 80W SuperVOOC Flash Charge support for fast charging, 50W AirVOOC Wireless Flash Charge and reverse wireless charging support. The company made the odd decision to switch from USB-C charging to USB-A on the Chinese version, so we’ll have to wait and see if the same happens with the UK models.

The Xiaomi 12 Pro has a higher peak brightness and a higher touch sampling rate. It also has a higher megapixel count across its three cameras and includes quad speakers with Harman Kardon sound. Finally, it offers faster fast charging speeds.

The OnePlus 10 Pro, meanwhile, has a significantly wider ultra-wide-angle camera, higher storage options, and a larger battery.

However, we will have to spend more time with each device to be sure which device impresses us more. You should come back when we publish our full reviews for our final statements.
