The US fell a bit short with the OnePlus 10 Pro, because while the UK got an 8GB RAM/128GB storage version and one with 12GB/256GB, the US only got the former. . Now, however, that is being fixed.
OnePlus has announced that a version of the OnePlus 15 Pro with 10 GB of RAM and 12 GB of storage will be marketed in the United States starting June 256. It will only be available in Volcanic Black, though strangely in the UK it's only available in Emerald Forest, and will cost €969. For reference, the 8GB model is €899, so you'll pay an extra €70 for it.
This new OnePlus 10 Pro 12GB will be sold directly by OnePlus, as well as Amazon and Best Buy, and will work on T-Mobile and Verizon's 5G networks, as well as AT&T's 4G network.
If you're interested, you might want to order quickly, for example, if you buy it between June 15 and 20, you'll get the OnePlus Buds Pro for free (which usually costs €149.99).
Then again, with a OnePlus 10T possibly landing later this year, if you haven't picked up the OnePlus 10 Pro yet, you might want to consider waiting to see what that brings.

Analysis: still not the best model
While this 12GB/256GB version of the OnePlus 10 Pro is a clear upgrade from the version currently available in the US, it's still not the best OnePlus 10 Pro model - it's the OnePlus 10 Pro Extreme Editing.
Extreme Edition bumps storage to 512GB (with 12GB RAM) and comes in a new Panda White hue with a ceramic finish.
So it's not much of an upgrade and arguably doesn't justify the Extreme Edition name. But it's the best version of the phone OnePlus has released so far, and far from releasing the standard model, it would be a more interesting option to bring to the US than the 256GB version.
Unfortunately, OnePlus hasn't chosen to release this version widely, so if you want it, you'll need to source it from China, which we don't recommend.
