The HyperBoost maximize the processor to run at the highest speed during gaming so that users can enjoy lag-free gaming experience.

There are tools available for tuning the processor under HyperBoost to get the best out of the phone as well. Moving on, the OnePlus 10 Pro features a 6.7-inch QHD+ curved AMOLED display with LTPO 2.0 that fluently work to make the display refresh between 1Hz and 120Hz.

At the left corner side above the display is a tiny punch hole that accommodates a 32MP selfie camera. Speaking of photography, the OnePlus 10 Pro have triple rear-facing cameras with a 48MP sensor taking the lead.

The secondary is a 50MP ultra-wide camera and the tertiary an 8MP telephoto camera with 3.3X optical zoom. The cameras carry Hasselblad signature.
