As the official launch of the OnePlus 10T rapidly approaches, let’s round up everything we know about it thus far from official teasers, press releases and yes, our trusty, rumour mill that keeps churning out heaps of information to build up the anticipation.
OnePlus 10T: Everything we know ahead of the launch on August 3
We may not know everything but we do know that this device will be the first OnePlus phone to feature Qualcomm’s premium Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. OnePlus confirmed it so we have no reason to doubt this. It will also be the first phone in the company’s lineup equipped with 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM. This is quite a step up compared to the existing models like the OnePlus 10 Pro which comes with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset with up to 12GB of RAM.
Regarding battery life, the OnePlus website says that the 10T will carry a 4,800mAh unit with 150W SuperVOOC charging. Once again, it's a step up from the 10 Pro which supports just 80W fast charging but is on par with the charging tech features in the OnePlus 10R. The major difference here could be that the 10T might lack wireless charging. The smartphone also comes with a 3D cooling system 2.0 for better gaming, a 360-degree antenna system, and Smart Link features.
Design and display
OnePlus has officially revealed that the 10T will be available in two colours - Green and Black. It will probably feature a sandstone finish as the images highlight a textured back (as seen in the black variant), and of course, the company is no stranger to sandstone-finish rear panels. Interestingly, OnePlus has chosen to ditch the Alert Slider on this one (Why? We’ll find out on August 3).
According to reports, the phone is expected to sport a 6.7in Fluid AMOLED Full HD+ display with a 2412 x 1080 pixel resolution. It will likely support 10-bit colours, sRGB colour gamut, and HDR10+. The front panel includes a hole-punch cutout, centrally aligned and is said to encase a 16MP front camera with EIS support.
When it comes to cameras, OnePlus has officially confirmed that this smartphone will not feature Hasselblad-tuned cameras, as seen on the OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro, and OnePlus 10 Pro. That said, it will continue to feature a 50MP Sony IMX766, likely with OIS (optical image stabilisation). Rumour on the streets is that the rear camera module will also house an 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 2MP macro camera.
The OnePlus 10T is likely to receive OxygenOS 13 later this year and will run on Android 13. The phone will probably get three or four storage options.
As per recent leaks, the price of the OnePlus 10T could be somewhere around ₹49,999 for the base variant. That said, you may want to hold your horses when it comes to believing everything you see, after all the launch is just 48 hours away!
