The OnePlus 10T is a smartphone with a 6.7 inch, 2412 x 1080 pixel AMOLED display featuring a 120 Hz refresh rate, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, Android 12 software, and support for 125W fast charging.

But it’s also a reasonably affordable phone, with prices starting at $649. The OnePlus 10T goes up for pre-order September 1st and should be available starting September 29, 2022.

In other words, the phone should be at least a little faster than the OnePlus 10 Pro thanks to a bump from a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip to a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor. But it has a starting price that’s about $250 lower than the launch price for the OnePlus 10 Pro.

And if you opt for the highest-spec version of the OnePlus 10T you’ll get more RAM and still end up saving some money:

ModelPrice
OnePlus 10T 8GB / 128GB$649
OnePlus 10T 16GB / 256GB$749
OnePlus 10 Pro 8GB / 128GB$849 (at launch) / $799 (current)
OnePlus 10 Pro 12GB / 256GB$969 (at launch) / $869 (current)

So what did OnePlus cut in order to lower the price?

The OnePlus 10T has a lower-resolution display, a slightly smaller battery (which will probably come out as a wash for battery life), slightly less impressive cameras, and lacks support for wireless charging and WiFi 6E (topping out at WiFi 6 instead). It also features a USB 2.0 port rather than USB 3.1.

For the most part those seems like reasonable tradeoffs for the cost savings. Bu they could make the OnePlus 10T a little less attractive than the OnePlus 10 Pro, even with the faster processor.

Note that the prices and specs listed above are for the North American version of the OnePlus 10T. The company also plans to offer models in some regions with support for up to 150W fast charging and/or 12GB of RAM.

  1. USB 2.0 are you kidding? The rest ok, but USB 2.0 cant be any cost savings and is a huge annoyance.
