Blast from the past: OnePlus 10T may get its signature sandstone back

Written by admin

Do you remember the first OnePlus phone, the OnePlus One? Released in 2014, it was truly a flagship killer, with really high-end specs and a super aggressive $299 price tag that was way below its closest competitors, the OnePlus One started something that is still going strong.

One of the defining features of the OnePlus One was its totally unorthodox design that made use of a textured, sandpaper-like back cover that quickly became a signature feature of the early OnePlus days. While later devices used glass backs, OnePlus released multiple sandstone cases aiming to recapture the same feel, and it succeeded.

Well, OnePlus may seem to be retaking the same thunder with its upcoming The OnePlus 10T flagship, which is expected to arrive this fall. According to a leaked official image of the device obtained by: PricebabaThe OnePlus 10T could have a sandstone back like its grand predecessors, possibly in an attempt to recapture the same interest.

The use of a sandstone by the end of 2022 would certainly OnePlus 10T stands out among its peers as most of them now all have glass backs, be it glossy, plastic or matte. With a sandstone back, the OnePlus 10T could keep the weight down while also being more durable. Of course, this could only be one option of the OnePlus 10T, and we expect a regular glass version of the phone to be released in several colors as well.

Apart from the rugged ridge, there is very little else to see here. A single OnePlus logo can be seen on the back, but an intentional shadow literally hides the top of the phone in deep secrecy, obscuring the camera module from our eyes.
What do we know about the OnePlus 10T so far? some free promising leaks indicate excellent Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 performance, which could propel the OnePlus 10T straight to the top of AnTuTu’s device rankings, which could certainly be a big win for OnePlus.
The performance monster is expected to come with a roomy 6.7-inch FHD+ 120Hz OLED display, a slightly smaller 4,800mAh battery compared to the OnePlus 10 Pro’s 5,000 mAh one, and only two cameras, wide and ultra-wide. Probably the most interesting aspect of the device is the alleged 150W fast charging, a super fast solution that should fully charge the phone in no time.
