After the tumultuous launch of the OnePlus 10 series, the now-corporatized smartphone maker is gearing up to launch the OnePlus 10T very soon. As is tradition with OnePlus devices, we get to see an updated “T” model a few months after the mainline release on every generation. Even though, the company still hasn’t officially announced the device, rumored specs have been floating around for some time now and, today, high-quality renders of the phone have leaked out.
Courtesy of Pricebaba Daily, who also delivered us Galaxy Z Fold 4 renders a few days ago, the OnePlus 10T looks a lot like the normal OnePlus 10 (Pro) in these renders. As you’ll see below, the device is set to come in two colors: Moon Black and Jadestone Green, both of which are carried forward from the OnePlus 10 Pro.
You will notice right away that the phone has two notable omissions. The iconic OnePlus alert slider is nowhere to be seen, and there is also no Hasselblad branding present on the rear cameras. The reason for the absence of the alert slider is to make room for other crucial components in the device, such as a bigger battery and better antennas.
As for the Hasselblad name, OnePlus says they ditched it because they “wanted to offer an ultimate performance flagship smartphone at the device’s chosen price point“. Essentially, the partnership’s reserved for OnePlus top-end phones in which they can charge an extra for the color science that the camera maker brings to the device.
Apart from that, the OnePlus 10T is pretty boring-looking, so let’s talk about the specs. Fortunately, the company has packed the 10T with flagship-tier features and components, all of which come together to create quite a reasonably priced phone. Here are the official specs, as per Pricebaba:
- Display: 6.7-inch 120Hz “Fluid AMOLED”
- Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1
- RAM: 8/12GB
- Storage: 128/256GB
- Battery: 4,800mAh with 150W charging
- Cameras: 50MP + 8MP Ultrawide + 2MP Macro + 16MP Selfie
- Software: OxygenOS 12, based on Android 12
- Colors: Jade Green + Moonstone Black
It should be noted that some reports suggest OnePlus might launch a 16GB variant of the 10T in select regions, as well. Otherwise, most regions will get the standard 8 or 12GB models. Moreover, the display is HDR10+ compliant and support 10-bit color, at a resolution of 2412 x 1080 pixels, making it a very high-end panel.
Coming to the cameras, despite the lack of Hassleblad’s assist here, the 10T is packing high-end sensors all around. The primary shooter is using a Sony IMX766 sensor, while the front selfie camera includes EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization). Speaking of which, the front camera sits inside a centered punch-hole cutout, a first for any OnePlus device.
The OnePlus 10T is largely intended for South Asian—in particular Indian—markets where it will be sold for $630 USD (converted). The 10T phone will be rebranded as the OnePlus “Ace Pro” for China, it’s expected that the phone will cost the same. Pricebaba also mentions that the phone will launch on 6th August, 2022 and will go on sale right away through online retailers.
