OnePlus 10T release date, UK pricing, specs and more
The OnePlus 10T finally launched today. Here's the latest info on the release date, what to expect and how to pre-order.
The OnePlus 10T is almost here and today's launch event showed off a powerful new handset from the makers of OnePlus 10 Pro which impressed us earlier this year.
We were expecting the OnePlus 10T to essentially be a slightly more affordable version of the Pro — and it is in some respects, but it also beats its older sibling in one or two areas. It offers that same snappy Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor and has bags of power as a result.
Our reviewers have been impressed with OnePlus handsets recently and in our full review of the OnePlus 10 Pro, the brand's flagship bagged a four-star rating. Now, we're expecting plenty from this new OnePlus handset when we get hands-on with it.
Read on for the latest info and updates on how to watch the launch event live.
OnePlus 10T UK release date
The OnePlus 10T launch event took place on 3rd August 2022 at 3pm BST. We were told the phone will go on sale on 25th August in the UK. So there's not much longer to wait.
US buyers will have to wait a little longer, until 29th September.
OnePlus 10T UK price: how much will the new smartphone cost?
The phone will cost £629 in the UK and $649 for US buyers. This makes it a more affordable upper mid-range option when compared to the £799 flagship price of the OnePlus 10 Pro. Take a look at the latest prices and deals on the OnePlus 10 Pro below.
OnePlus 10T specs
The phone will have a 50MP main camera, plus supporting 8MP and 2MP lenses. There's a 6.7-inch AMOLED display and either 8GB of RAM or an almost excessive 16GB of RAM. Yep, 16.
In terms of internals, the phone carries a boosted version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor that gives the OnePlus 10 Pro its power. It's called the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 and we're expecting it to deliver some very impressive performance. That standard 8 Gen 1 in the Pro certainly did and our reviewers praised its powerful performance, multi-tasking ability and speedy charging.
Really this phone is a slightly odd addition to the roster. It's got a beefed-up processor and faster charging, but you'll have to trade in some camera performance and battery life for that.
OnePlus 10T design
As you can see, the 10T's design is near-identical to the OnePlus 10 Pro, albeit with a slightly less nice finish on its surfaces. We haven't got up close and personal with this new model at time of writing but that new slightly glossy panel almost looks a little cheap in some images, when compared to the pleasing sleek, matte finish of the 10 Pro.
The four-ring camera array divided opinion when it first appeared on the OnePlus 10 Pro but we liked the design and the metallic finish. The set-up of the 10T is very much the same and keeps the distinctive look OnePlus adopted with the Pro model.
