OnePlus 10T official with performance gains and 150W charging
NEW YORK (Pocket-lint) – OnePlus has officially revealed its latest flagship in the form of the OnePlus 10T. Sharing a similar design to the OnePlus 10 Pro that launched earlier this year, the 10T updates the hardware inside, but steps down the camera.
Available in two colours – Sandstone Black and Jade Green – the OnePlus 10T features a large, square prominent camera housing on the back. There are three lenses within the housing and a circular flash, offering a symmetrical finish like the 10 Pro, while the front of the handset sees a centralised punch hole camera at the top of the 6.7-inch Full HD+ 120Hz AMOLED display.
It’s under the hood where the OnePlus 10T is playing its best hand though, offering the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, coupled with up to 16GB of RAM – which is a first for a OnePlus device. There’s a choice of 128GB or 256GB of storage, depending on the model, and there’s a 4800mAh battery running the show too.
That battery has support for 150W – or 125W in the US – fast wired charging, which is almost twice that of the OnePlus 10 Pro. There’s no wireless charging or official IP rating though, and the OnePlus 10T has a plastic frame over the more premium metal frame offered on the Pro.
The triple rear is also made up of a 50-megapixel main sensor with an f/1.8 aperture and optical image stabilisation (OIS), an 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture and a 120-degree field of view, and a 2-megapixel macro sensor, which is a slightly different offering to the 10 Pro, and there’s no Hasselblad partnership.
In terms of cost, the hardware improvements and camera compromises balance each other out in the UK, with the OnePlus 10T starting at £799 in the UK, which is the same as the 10 Pro. In the US, it’s a cheaper device at $649 and the EU starting price is €699. Which should you buy? Read our in depth comprison of the two devices to help you decide.
