The OnePlus company has officially presented the new OnePlus 10T smartphone, with which it is trying to return to its roots. If you have been following this manufacturer for a long time, then you remember that it started with the release of “flagship killers” – models with mostly top features, but at a more affordable price.
It was a completely working strategy that allowed the company to attract attention at the start and win the favor of fans. But over the past few years, OnePlus has expanded its lineup to include below mid-range and mid-range smartphones, and the price of its flagships has risen accordingly. The manufacturer even tried to justify it with an agreement with the famous Swedish camera manufacturer Hasselblad, whose logo appeared on the OnePlus 10 Pro. All that said, it only annoyed longtime fans. It seems that the company has released the 10T model specifically for them, which is not a replacement or a continuation of the Pro version, but rather an extension of this line.
OnePlus 10T received a top processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 with Adreno 730 graphics, 8 or 16 GB LPDDR5 RAM, 128 or 256 GB UFS 3.1 [email protected] built-in storage. That is, the platform in the novelty is even more powerful than in the OnePlus 10 Pro, but this does not mean that the company did without simplifications.
The 6.7-inch Fluid AMOLED touch display in the OnePlus 10T has a resolution of 2412×1080 pixels (394 ppi), which is less than in the Pro model, but other features are on a high level: 120 Hz refresh rate, HDR10+ and protective glass from Corning.
The set of cameras in the model not only got rid of the Hasselblad inscription and the branded interface but also became simpler. The OnePlus 10T uses three main modules, the main of which is a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 with f/1.8 aperture, phase detection autofocus, and optical stabilization. This is quite a popular camera for mid-range models, for example, it was used by Nothing in its first smartphone phone (1). The other two modules are also not flagship – this is an ultra-wide-angle 8-megapixel camera with an aperture of f/2.2, a viewing angle of 119.9 degrees, and electronic stabilization, as well as a 2-megapixel macro lens with an effective focus of 2 to 4 cm.
The front module in the OnePlus 10T is 16-megapixel with an aperture of f/2.4 and fixed focus.
The smartphone supports wireless technologies Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2 with codecs SBC, aptX HD, LDAC, and AAC, as well as NFC. GPS, GLONASS, BDS, GALILEO, and QZSS modules are used for navigation.
To protect data, in addition to the password, the OnePlus 10T has a fingerprint scanner located under the screen glass. It uses a photo sensor and illuminates the scanning area by turning on the display pixels. This scanner is found in a lot of OnePlus models, so it should be familiar to users.
Like other models of the manufacturer in the flagship line, the OnePlus 10T received stereo speakers. One of them is located on the lower facet, and the other is combined with the spoken one.
The battery built into the smartphone consists of two parts with a total capacity of 4800 mAh, which made it possible to implement the proprietary SUPERVOOC fast charging from OnePlus’ parent company – BBK Electronics. The smartphone comes with a 150W power bank, which is more than a compact laptop, but in some markets, including the US, the charging speed is limited to 125W due to government regulation.
In general, the OneOlus 10T has a nice set of features, but even better, the price of the smartphone again corresponds to the status of a “flagship killer”, for the basic version with 8/128 GB, the company is asking $649 in the US.
