OnePlus 10T vs OnePlus 10 Pro: What are the key differences

Flagship contenders

The OnePlus 10T was launched in a bigly way in the Big Apple, and it’s got a lot of people talking. It boasts flagship-grade specs and yet costs less than the top-of-the-line OnePlus 10 Pro. Let's dive into what are the key differences between the two OnePlus smartphones. 



When it comes to display, both the 10T and 10 Pro sport a 6.7in display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The difference lies in the resolution with the 10T having a  2412 x 1080 pixels FHD+ resolution versus the 10 Pro’s 3216 x 1440 pixel QHD resolution. Additionally, the 10T sports a flat display, while the OnePlus 10 Pro display has curved edges. That said, you do get 10-bit colour, HDR10+ and adaptive refresh rate support on both smartphones.


While a large chuck of these two handsets is born of the same blood, a major difference lies under the hood. The 10T is powered by Qualcomm’s latest, improved and more efficient Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, while the 10 Pro is equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, one that has been heavily criticised for its inconsistent and inefficient behaviour. Alongside the latest chipset, the 10T also incorporates an improved cooling mechanism, that hasn’t been used in the Pro model.


The OnePlus 10T comes packed with up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 two-lane storage. With a series of memory optimisations that can enable the phone to suspend around 35 applications at a pinch for a faster, less interrupted user experience. On the other hand, the 10 Pro comes with an up to 12GB RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 two-lane storage.



Once again the 10T outperforms the 10 Pro with a whopping 150W fast charging over the 80W charging capability of the Pro. That said the Pro does pack in a slightly larger 5,000mAh battery, whereas the OnePlus 10T has a 4,800mAh battery.

Operating System

Interestingly, the OnePlus 10 Pro will be the first smartphone to get the OxygenOS 13 update whereas the OnePlus 10T is set to receive the update later this year.



When it comes to cameras, the 10 Pro makes the 10T seem like a pretty standard midranger. The OnePlus 10 Pro comes with a triple camera setup that includes a 48MP main, 50MP ultrawide and an 8MP telephoto. Contrastingly, the OnePlus 10T’s triple camera setup only has a 50MP main, a 12MP ultrawide and a 2MP macro. Additionally there is no Hasselblad tuning for the OnePlus 10T, whereas it is a standout feature on the Pro. 

For selfies too, the Pro carries a 32MP camera while the 10T has just a 16MP shooter on the front. It is pretty evident that the 10 Pro is all about the cams.



In India, the OnePlus 10T is priced starting at ₹49,999 and going up to ₹55,999, while the 10 Pro starts at ₹61,999 and goes up to ₹66,999.
