As far as OnePlus’s next flagship phones go, we’ve heard a lot of discussion about a basic OnePlus 10 and a OnePlus 10 Ultra. The OnePlus 10T seems to be the likely replacement for any of the two.
There is a good chance that this phone will wind up becoming the OnePlus 10 in every way except name based on its current positioning. According to recent reports, the Pro may be outclassed by the new phone in terms of charging speed, and the CPU may also be superior.
This post will be updated as soon as we learn more about the OnePlus 10T, so please check back often for more information.
OnePlus 10T release date and price
As of now, the only reliable rumour is that the OnePlus 10T will be released in July, but that would be too early for a T model and too close to the debut of the OnePlus 10 Pro, so we’d expect it to come out in August or September.
According to the same source, the OnePlus 10R is expected to cost somewhere between the OnePlus 10 Pro and the OnePlus 10R, which would put it in the middle of the two. For comparison, the starting price of the phone is $899 / £799 (about $1,400).
In spite of this, it’s possible that the OnePlus 10T might feature stronger specifications than its predecessors, and perhaps be the OnePlus 10 Ultra in everything but name. Which means the price might go considerably higher.
OnePlus 10T name
Because the OnePlus 10T is a “T” variant of a standard-numbered OnePlus phone, the naming choice seems a little weird. As a result, a OnePlus 10T should not exist without a OnePlus 10.
Even then, by the same reasoning, there shouldn’t be a 10 Pro with no 10, but here we are nevertheless.
It’s possible that OnePlus may debut it under the name OnePlus 10, which is what one insider has stated, claiming that the company is undecided as to whether it would be branded the 10T or just 10.
However, the OnePlus 10 has mostly been replaced by the OnePlus 10T in recent leaks, with leaker Max Jambor(opens in new tab) expressly stating that the OnePlus 10T 5G is “the definitive name of the next and only flagship phone coming from OnePlus this year.
Adding a T to the name makes sense since the OnePlus 10T is expected to arrive after the OnePlus 10 Pro, which means it’s not directly part of the OnePlus 10 range.
OnePlus 10T design and display
Leaked photos and specifications from the OnePlus 10T have provided us with a glimpse of the phone’s likely appearance.
Despite the fact that it only houses lenses in its left two-thirds, the picture below shows a large camera block running across the whole width of the back — with a punch-hole camera and flat screen on the front.
In addition to the power and volume buttons, there is no alert slider on the right. Although these photographs are based on early prototypes of the phone, they may not be completely accurate.
The OnePlus 10T is expected to include a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with a Full HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate, according to the same source. Another leaker has given the same screen dimensions. There was a second leaker who believed this phone would be called the OnePlus 10, but they’re definitely talking about the same phone.
It seems that the design and display are a step down from the OnePlus 10 Pro’s QHD+ curved screen and maybe reduced bezels.
OnePlus 10T camera and battery
On the back of the phone, the OnePlus 10T sports a triple-lens camera that includes a 50MP main camera with OIS, a 16MP ultrawide camera, and a 2MP macro lens. It can supposedly capture 4K video at up to 60fps, as well. According to reports, a 32MP camera on the front is capable of 1080p 30fps shooting.
There’s a strong likelihood that this list of camera specifications, which was previously leaked by another source, is true.
According to another report, there will be a 50MP main sensor paired with 8MP and 2MP auxiliary sensors, as well as a 16MP front-facing camera.
The same three sources also claim that it features a 4,800mAh battery with a 150W charging capability. Although the 10T’s battery capacity is less than the 10 Pro’s, it still has an impressive level of charging capability.
OnePlus 10T specs and features
The OnePlus 10 Pro is expected to run on either the Dimensity 9000 or the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus, according to several sources.
OnePlus 10 Pro’s processor is superior than the one in both of these devices, with the latter being even more powerful (or just about any other Android phone).
According to a single source, OnePlus has opted to move from its Dimensity processor to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus, and leaker @yabhishekhd tweeted(opens in new tab) precisely that it would utilise the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus. This chipset is also mentioned by a third party.
According to some reports, OnePlus 10T will include an option of either 8GB or 12Gb RAM and either 128GB or 256Gb storage, with Android 12 layered with OxygenOS 12.
