OnePlus has launched the OnePlus 10T, a phone that looks like the OnePlus 10 Pro and will be sold alongside it for a lower price globally.
The 10T upgrades in certain areas with Qualcomm’s latest high-end Snapdragon processor and the addition of even faster charging, but loses the Hasselblad camera branding, telephoto lens, and wireless charging found on the 10 Pro.
Tech Advisor was at the OnePlus 10T launch in New York City to get the lowdown on the new Android flagship. You can also read our full and comprehensive OnePlus 10T review.
Here everything you need to know about the OnePlus 10T.
When does the OnePlus 10T go on sale?
The OnePlus 10T is available to pre-order from 3 August 2022. OnePlus is offering pre-order customers some attractive deals, so check out our full guide on where to buy the OnePlus 10T here.
The phone is available in the UK, Europe, Asia, North America, Middle East, and Chile, making it one of OnePlus’s most widely available phones to date.
The OnePlus 10T costs from $649/£629/€699 £799 for the moonstone black model with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage.
A jade green version with 16GB RAM and 256GB storage will cost $749/£729/€799.
This makes it a decent saving on the $899/£799/€899 OnePlus 10 Pro and undercuts rivals like the Samsung Galaxy S22. It’s a smidge more than the Google Pixel 6.
What specs and features does the OnePlus 10T have?
The OnePlus 10T runs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 with either 8GB RAM and 128GB storage or 16GB RAM and 256GB storage.
It sports a flat 6.7in FHD+ OLED display, a boon for Android fans who don’t like the premium trend in recent years towards curved edge screens. An in-screen fingerprint sensor is present and correct.
Controversially for OnePlus fans, the 10T is the first flagship OnePlus phone to not have an alert slider, the physical three-position switch that can change the phone from ring, to vibrate, to silent.
That battery is charged at a whopping 150W by the included charger in the box, but in a cost- and space-saving measure, there is no wireless charging.
The 10T uses the same main camera sensor as the OnePlus Nord 2T, Sony’s IMX766. The compant says it has tweaked the optics on the newer phone, but it is the same sensor.
That’s supported by 8Mp ultrawide and 2Mp macro lenses – no telephoto here. A 16Mp selfie camera rounds off the package. OnePlus packs in all its usual software smarts such as HDR, night mode, slo-mo video, and video recording up to 4K at 60fps.
The phone is rounded off with dual-nano SIM slots, NFC, and of course, 5G.
