If you’re a power Android user looking for a new ultra-high-end handset that hasn’t been released yet, it can be hard to show the slightest interest in anything other than Samsung’s fast-approaching Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Z Fold 4.
But the OnePlus 10T is even closer on the horizon, and from some key standpoints, this thoroughly leaked villain could even surpass the mainstream appeal of the extravagant Galaxy Z Fold 4. For starters, you’re definitely looking at a more affordable powerhouse here, and believe it or not, OnePlus just confirmed its plans to squeeze more memory into the 10T than it does into the $899 and above 10 Pro.
A multitasker’s wet dream
With said 5G-enabled 10 Pro beast priced at $969 in a top-end configuration that combines 256 gigabytes of internal storage with 12 GB of RAM, it remains to be seen how expensive the OnePlus 10T will get in an even more impressive variant with 16 appearances of the good stuff besides the same 256GB local digital hamster room.
In case you’re wondering why you’ll ever need more RAM in your pocket than many laptops out there, OnePlus claims the 10T’s 16GB of memory will be enough to “suspend more than 35 applications at once for a faster, smoother and uninterrupted user experience.”
That certainly sounds handy… for those mundane usage scenarios where you need to open “more than” 35 apps on your phone and run them all at the same time, with a state-of-the-art Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor of course to make sure the OnePlus 10T can handle this totally non-wasting heavy multitasking experience.
Strangely, there is no mention of an estimated battery life in such a scenario in the latest OnePlus 10T “deep dive”
focused on all the ways this next-generation flagship will “evolve beyond speed”.
These happen to include a faster-than-ever Qualcomm-made GPU and a 7th Gen Qualcomm AI Engine that add to the greatness of the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, as well as the “largest and most advanced” cooling system designed by OnePlus to date.
All game skills without the game weight
Using fancy materials like 3D graphite and copper foil, as well as something called a cryo-velocity vapor chamber with eight dissipation channels, the ultra-advanced cooling system essentially promises to make the 10T an excellent gaming phone without the bulk of something like the Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro.
The The OnePlus 10T is rumored to tip the scales at a fairly lightweight 204 grams, while packing a 4,800mAh battery that just falls short of the mark. 10 Pro’s 5,000 mAh cell capacity.
The 6.7-inch display is expected to remain largely unchanged, at least in terms of size, AMOLED technology and support for dynamic refresh rate up to a silky smooth 120Hz, with the resolution likely to be downgraded to the Full HD+ character (about 2,400x), however. 1080 pixels, that is).
Keep in mind that many of these specs are not: technically still etched in stone, as is the case for a triple rear-facing camera system that is said to consist of 50.8 and 2MP sensors, insanely fast 150W charging capabilities, and the same 32MP selfie snapper as the OnePlus 10Pro.
All in all, like any T-branded model, this thing should take a slightly lower position on the OnePlus totem pole than the latest Pro handset, which obviously means a more affordable starting price is in the cards. .-level version with 128GB storage and 8GB RAM. A US release is also guaranteed, with a major announcement event in New York City starting at 10 a.m. Eastern Time on Aug. 3 to try some of the Samsung’s August 10 Unpacked Thunder.
