OnePlus told us to mark August 3 in our calendars as the date when they will fully reveal the OnePlus 10T. That day has come and here’s everything you need to know about this new OnePlus flagship phone.
OnePlus 10T launch details and pricing
The OnePlus 10T arrives in North America on September 29, with pre-orders open on September 1 at the OnePlus Store, Amazon, and Best Buy. The phone comes in two configurations of 8GB RAM – 128GB or 16GB – 256GB and priced at $649 and $749, respectively.
OnePlus also hosts an early access program that will allow some of you to get the phone in advance. They are currently planning to host early access dates August 3-6, August 10-13, August 17-20, and August 24-27, when you’ll be able to order the 10T from the OnePlus website. If you take advantage of early access, you’ll be upgraded to the 16GB-256GB model and only pay $649.
OnePlus 10T Specifications and Features
Now that you know when you can buy one, let’s talk about the OnePlus 10T features that will try to convince you to do so.
The OnePlus 10T is powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and comes in the previously mentioned 8GB – 128GB or 16GB – 256GB RAM configurations. It features a 4800mAh battery with insanely charging and, stupidly, your mind blown at 125W (it will charge from 1-100% in about 20 minutes), with an inline 160W charger. However, it does not have wireless charging.
OnePlus also includes a 6.7 FHD AMOLED screen at 120 Hz, stereo speakers, built-in fingerprint reader, 5G and WiFi 6E, Bluetooth 5.3, NFC, Gorilla Glass 5, OxygenOS 12.1 on top of Android 12. It weighs 10T 203.5 g and comes in Moonstone Black or Jade Green.
In the camera department, you’ll find a 50MP main lens (Sony IMX766) with f/1.8 aperture with OIS and EIS, along with 8MP ultra-wide and 2MP macro lenses. The selfie camera is a 16MP camera with EIS. The main camera can shoot at 4K/60fps, and it has modes like Nightscape 2.0, Portrait and Pro, but this is not a Hasselblad-branded unit.
OnePlus also says they’ve put 15 antennas in the 10T to give it stronger WiFi and cellular signals, though it hasn’t revealed carrier partners yet. Looking at the ranges on the spec sheet I have, the phone should work fine on low and mid-range 5G networks from AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon. The phone does not support the 5G mmW network.
Overall, the OnePlus 10T packs a number of high-end specs (like the processor, display, up to 16GB of RAM, and charging capabilities), but OnePlus has also cut a number of things down to keep the price down, which is evident in its average Sony IMX766 main sensor. range, lack of wireless charging, and no Hasselblad features. This doesn’t fall into their “pro” phone line, so it almost makes sense in a weird way. Oh, they cut out the Alert Slider too, apparently to make room for all the charging stuff.
OxygenOS 13 and update support
As part of this OnePlus 10T launch, OnePlus is announcing OxygenOS 13 which is supposed to have an “upgraded cross-board experience” with “improved customization, gaming and connectivity”. OnePlus talks about its new “soft and rounded edges” throughout the OS, smart transitions of OS colors to match the time of day, enhanced performance with AI System Booster, more customization on the always-on display, large folders, and a sidebar and app toolkit Spatial audio support, Android quick pairing, Android audio switching, and more.
Obviously, this won’t be released until Android 13 is released, but OnePlus says the OnePlus 10 Pro will get the update to OxygenOS 13 first and “soon”, followed by the OnePlus 10T “later this year”.
As for general OnePlus 10T support, you should expect three major Android updates and four years of security updates.
