Meanwhile, insider Yogesh Brar talks about the possible debut of OPPO K10 Pro outside of China: the smartphone could arrive on the Global market in the form of OnePlus rebrand.

However, it does not seem so strange that the hypothesis of a rebrand could make its way: after all, the first signs regarding a "deep merger" are already there (just think of the rumors about to the foldout of OnePlus o at the return of the Ace series).
