(Pocket-lint) - OnePlus has already announced a number of phones this year, but we've just been treated to one more in the OnePlus 10T.
The device sits in a somewhat strange position, starting at the same price as the OnePlus 10 Pro that arrived earlier in the year. The 10T upgrades the hardware of the 10 Pro, but its camera system isn't quite as capable, offering a slightly different proposition.
Here is everything you need to know about the next OnePlus flagship phone - the OnePlus 10T.
Release date and price
OnePlus announced the OnePlus 10T at an event on 3 August 2022 in New York City. The device was made available to pre-order the same day and it hits shelves on 25 August 2022.
In terms of price, the OnePlus 10T starts at £629 in the UK. This price is €699 in Europe and $649 in the US and that's for the 12GB of RAM model. The 16GB of RAM model costs £729 in the UK, $749 in the US and €799 in Europe.
OnePlus 10T design and display
- 163 x 75.37 x 8.75mm, 203.5
- Sandstone Black and Jade Green
- 6.7-inch AMOLED, Full HD+, 120Hz
We knew what the OnePlus 10T was going to look like before it was officially announced as the company itself showed it off in a forum post, but now we have all the details.
The OnePlus 10T has a similar design to the 10 Pro, featuring a prominent camera housing on the rear with three lenses and a flash as a fourth circle for a symmetrical look. The edges of the housing are curved to give it that seamless ramping up effect and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protects the back.
There's a plastic frame over metal with the 10T and no Hasselblad branding. The eagle-eyed among you will also notice the lack of alert slider - a feature that has been present on OnePlus flagship phones since their beginning. OnePlus said the OnePlus 10T won't have the signature feature in order to make room for a larger motherboard inside.
Elsewhere, the OnePlus 10T comes in two colours: Moonstone Black and Jade Green.
When in comes to the front, the OnePlus 10T has a flat display and a centralised punch hole camera at the top. By comparison, the OnePlus 10 Pro has a curved display and its front camera is positioned in the top left corner like the OnePlus Nord 2T.
The display is 6.7-inches - like the 10 Pro - though it's a standard AMOLED panel rather than AMOLED with LTPO. The OnePlus 10T also has a Full HD+ (2412 x 1080) resolution rather than a Quad HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate, rather than an adaptable refresh rate.
The OnePlus 10T supports HDR10+ and 10-bit colour though and there is an under-display fingerprint sensor.
OnePlus 10T specs and battery
- Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1
- 8/12/16GB RAM, 128/256GB storage
- 4800mAh, 150W
The OnePlus 10T runs on the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset and it's the first OnePlus smartphone to be offered with 16GB of RAM. There are also 8GB and 12GB of RAM models, though all of these are region dependant. The 8GB of RAM model comes with 128GB of storage, while the 12GB and 16GB models have 256GB.
In terms of battery, the OnePlus 10T features a 4800mAh capacity with 150W fast charging. That means the OnePlus 10T delivers faster charging than the OnePlus 10 Pro. In the US, this is reduced to 125W, but it is still faster than the 10 Pro's 80W SuperVOOC offering. The 10 Pro offers wireless charging though, while the OnePlus 10T doesn't support wireless charging.
OnePlus 10T camera
- Triple rear camera (50MP + 8MP + 2MP)
- 16MP front camera
The OnePlus 10T has a triple rear camera with a Sony IMX766 50-megapixel main sensor, that is joined by an 8-megapixel ultrawide and a 2-megapixel macro camera.
The 50-megapixel main sensor features optical and electronic image stabilisation, along with an aperture of f/1.8 and a pixel size of 1.0µm. The 8-megapixel ultrawide sensor has a 119.9-degree field of view and an aperture of f/2.2, while the 2-megapixel macro camera offers a shooting distance between 2cm and 4cm.
It means the 10T is sporting virtually the same camera system as the OnePlus Nord 2T.
In terms of features, you'll find Nightscape 2.0, Ultra HDR, Smart Scene Recognition, Movie Mode, Video HDR, Video Nightscape and several more.
On the front, the OnePlus 10T offers a 16-megapixel camera with f/2.4 aperture and EIS.
Video capabilities are up to 4K at 60fps from the rear camera and up to 1080p at 30fps from the front.
