Recent rumors say that OnePlus’ next flagship phone will have the OnePlus 10T and there is an increasing chance that it will be quite affordable.
OnePlus started out as a brand that offered high-end specs at a low price, but that has changed over the years, with the OnePlus 9 Pro in 2021 being the first OnePlus phone to hit $1,000. At $899, the OnePlus 10 Pro is relatively affordable, but still quite expensive. If we can believe a new rumor, OnePlus 10T could see the company return to its flagship killer roots.
As per the leaks, the OnePlus 10T, codenamed Ovaltine, will feature a 6.7-inch FHD+ flat screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and a center punch hole for the rumored 16MP front-facing camera, a small step down compared to the OnePlus 10 Pro’s QHD+ curved screen.
The OnePlus 10T will reportedly be backed by Qualcomm’s latest high-end chip, the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, which should make it faster than the 10 Pro powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. The SoC will be paired. of up to 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.
The handset is rumored to have a triple camera system with a 50MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle sensor and a 2MP macro unit, but will likely not feature the Hasselblad branding.
It will likely have a smaller 4,800 mAh cell than the 10 Pro’s 5,000 mAh battery, but can support faster charging speeds. The device will reportedly be available in white, black and mint green.
Chinese site IT-home
) claims the phone will be released in the second half of the year and will be priced between 3,000 Yuan (~$467) and 4,000 Yuan (~$596). It will likely cost more in international markets due to taxes and duties, but still, if this rumor is true, the OnePlus 10T will be significantly cheaper than OnePlus’ recent flagships. This could help to compete with the best phones of the year.
It’s not entirely clear whether this rumor is based on: IT Homes own sources or if the site is just repeating what another leaker had said before.
Could it be that OnePlus is feeling the pressure of Nothing, which is led by co-founder Carl Pei and on the cusp of launches its first smartphone and has decided to lower its price for fear of losing OG fans to the new company? Who knows, but we’re all here for healthy competition.
