We’ve heard quite a few claims about what flagship telephones we would or won’t see from OnePlus this yr, with discuss principally referring to a normal OnePlus 10 and a OnePlus 10 Ultra. Nevertheless it’s now trying like we would not see both of these, with a OnePlus 10T as a substitute launching.
This telephone to date appears positioned as a barely decrease finish handset than the OnePlus 10 Pro, so it might find yourself being the OnePlus 10 in all however title. Nevertheless leaks counsel it has the Professional beat in no less than one space – that being charging velocity, and there’s a chance that it might have a greater chipset too.
Beneath we’ve detailed the whole lot that we’ve heard in regards to the OnePlus 10T to date, and we’ll replace this text as quickly as we hear something extra about it.
Minimize to the chase
- What’s it? The following high-end OnePlus telephone
- When is it out? In all probability later this yr
- How a lot will it value? Probably barely lower than the OnePlus 10 Professional
OnePlus 10T launch date and worth
The one actual release date rumor to date factors to the OnePlus 10T touchdown in July, although this appears early for a T mannequin and fairly near the launch of the OnePlus 10 Professional, so we’d assume August or September is extra probably.
There’s no information on what this telephone may cost, however the identical supply claims it’s positioned to fall between the OnePlus 10 Professional and the OnePlus 10R, which might imply a barely lower cost than the Professional. For reference, that telephone begins at $899 / £799 (roughly AU$1,400).
Although there’s some uncertainty over the place the 10T really sits within the line, with some proof that it might have higher specs than the OnePlus 10 Professional – and presumably be the OnePlus 10 Extremely in all however title. By which case it might have an excellent larger worth.
OnePlus 10T title
The OnePlus 10T is a barely odd title selection, on condition that sometimes ‘T’ variations are upgraded variations of normal numbered variations of OnePlus telephones. So actually there shouldn’t be a OnePlus 10T with no OnePlus 10.
However then by the identical logic there shouldn’t be a OnePlus 10 Professional with no OnePlus 10, and but right here we’re.
Nonetheless, there may be subsequently an opportunity that OnePlus will really launch this because the OnePlus 10 – one thing which one supply has instructed, saying they’re not sure whether or not it will likely be referred to as the 10T or the ten.
However most up-to-date leaks solely speak about a OnePlus 10T, with discuss of the ten having died off, and leaker Max Jambor (opens in new tab) has particularly stated that the OnePlus 10T 5G is the “ultimate title of the subsequent and solely flagship telephone coming from OnePlus this yr.”
There may be some obscure logic to calling this the 10T too, since it’s going to most likely be touchdown fairly some time after the OnePlus 10 Professional, so marking it out as not a direct a part of that line might make sense – and if it lands in the course of the typical T timing (late within the yr) then including a T to the title is sensible on that entrance.
OnePlus 10T design and show
One big OnePlus 10T leak has revealed a number of spec particulars, and likewise included photos, giving us a take a look at the telephone’s potential design.
You possibly can see considered one of these photos beneath, full with an enormous digital camera block stretching throughout your complete width of the rear – albeit solely housing lenses within the left two thirds, whereas the entrance has a flat display screen with pretty slim bezels and a punch-hole digital camera.
You can even see energy and quantity buttons on the proper edge, however there’s no alert slider. It’s value noting although that these photos are apparently based mostly on early prototype items of the telephone, so is probably not precisely proper.
The identical supply additionally revealed that the OnePlus 10T apparently has a 6.7-inch AMOLED display screen with a Full HD+ decision and a 120Hz refresh fee. These precise display screen specs have additionally been listed by another leaker. That second leaker thought this telephone would launch because the OnePlus 10, however they’re clearly speaking about the identical handset.
Primarily based on all this the design and show seem like a slight step down from the OnePlus 10 Professional, as that has a QHD+ curved display screen and presumably barely smaller bezels.
OnePlus 10T digital camera and battery
In response to one leak the OnePlus 10T has a triple-lens digital camera on the rear, consisting of a 50MP major digital camera with optical picture stabilization (OIS), a 16MP ultrawide snapper, and a 2MP macro one. It could additionally apparently document video in as much as 4K high quality at as much as 60fps. The entrance in the meantime is alleged to deal with a 32MP digital camera able to 1080p recording at 30fps.
This identical digital camera specs listing had beforehand been outed by another source, so there’s an excellent likelihood it’s correct.
That stated, a 3rd supply has pointed to slightly different camera specs, saying to anticipate a 50MP f/1.8 major sensor joined by 8MP and 2MP secondary ones, and a 16MP digital camera on the entrance.
As for the battery, the identical three sources have stated it has a 4,800mAh one with 150W charging. That’s an unimaginable quantity of charging energy and would have the OnePlus 10 Professional beat – although the scale of the battery is smaller right here, and the 10T additionally apparently lacks wi-fi charging.
OnePlus 10T specs and options
There’s slight uncertainty by way of which chipset the OnePlus 10 Professional will use, with sources suggesting it might use both the Dimensity 9000 or the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus.
These are each high-end chipsets, with the latter being even higher than the one within the OnePlus 10 Professional (or simply about another Android telephone).
It’s that latter chipset that’s at present trying extra probably too, with one supply saying OnePlus has determined to switch from the Dimensity to the Snapdragon, and leaker @yabhishekhd particularly tweeting (opens in new tab) that it’ll use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus. A third source has additionally pointed to this chipset.
Past that, we’ve heard that the OnePlus 10T may include a selection 8GB or 12GB of RAM, and 128GB or 256GB of storage, plus Android 12 overlaid with OxygenOS 12.
There’s additionally discuss of an under-display fingerprint scanner and stereo audio system – neither of which might be shocking.
