As it is positioned a notch below the OnePlus 10 Pro, OnePlus had to make certain cuts on the OnePlus 10T in order to keep the price down.
Measuring 163x75.4x8.8mm (6.42x2.97x0.35-inches) and weighing in at 204g, the OnePlus 10T is actually slightly thicker and heavier than the 10 Pro, and switches the aluminum frame and front Gorilla Glass Victus protection for a plastic frame and Gorilla Glass 5.
It also comes with a 6.7-inch 10-bit OLED 2412x1080 resolution HDR10+ screen, showing where the price cuts were obviously made. In case you missed it, the OnePlus 10 Pro has a more advanced LTPO2 screen with same size but higher resolution, leaving it with 525ppi of pixel density, much higher than 394ppi on the 10T.
What got updated is the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, giving the OnePlus 10T a slight boost in performance, and it also comes paired up with 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. OnePlus is also using a whole new 3D Cooling System with a larger vapor chamber.
The main rear camera system also got cut down to a triple sensor one, featuring a main 50-megapixel sensor behind an f/1.9 24mm lens with PDAF and OIS, an 8-megapixel sensor behind an f/2.2 ultrawide lens, and a 2-megapixel f/2.4 macro one.
The front camera on the OnePlus 10T got cut down to 16-megapixel f/2.4 one.
The rest of the specifications include Wi-Fi 6 support, Bluetooth 5.3, USB Type-C 2.0 port, under-display optical fingerprint sensor, stereo speakers, and 4800mAh battery with support for 150W charging and its Battery Health Engine that should reduce the wear.
The OnePlus 10T will be available in Moonstone Black and Jade Green color options with the price set at €699/£629/$649 for the 8GB/128GB, and €799/£729/$749 for the 12GB/256GB version. The European pre-orders kick off on August 25th, while the US pre-orders will start on September 1st.
