OnePlus’ flagship smartphone launch strategy for the year 2022 has been quite confusing so far. The company first introduced the OnePlus 10 Pro without launching other models of the OnePlus 10 series, and that too was limited to China for a few months. Later, the company launched the OnePlus 10R, but again in a few select markets. It now appears that OnePlus is getting back on track as the company is reportedly gearing up to launch a new model of the ‘T’ series, the OnePlus 10T.
In this guide, we have collected all of the leaks, rumors, and news about the OnePlus 10T that have appeared on the internet to help you find all the information in one place. While we have no official confirmation of the device’s existence, we expect the OnePlus 10T to be announced in the coming weeks/months. We’ll constantly update this article as and when new information becomes available, so make sure to check back and stay up to date with OnePlus 10T news.
Starting off with the design, the renders shared by @OnLeaks (via Smartprix) suggest that the OnePlus 10T won’t look much different compared to the OnePlus 10 Pro. The OnePlus 10T will reportedly keep a similar design, with the camera array blending into the side frame of the smartphone. One key difference to note here is that it’s not as seamless as on the 10 Pro as the side frame is much thicker.
You’ll also notice that OnePlus is using a slightly darker shade of green on the 10T as compared to the 10 Pro. In addition to the new green color, you can also expect the smartphone to be available in the sandstone finish like the previous-gen flagship. Leaker OnLeaks notes that these are not the final colors, and we will only get to know the final colors closer to the smartphone’s launch.
When talking about the build materials, it seems that OnePlus is taking a step back as unlike the OnePlus 10 Pro, which uses a glass back and metal frame, the OnePlus 10T will reportedly come with a plastic frame. Yes, the smartphone will still sport a glass back, but the side frame will reportedly be built out of plastic. OnePlus is also skipping the fan-favorite Alert Slider on the 10T, according to reports. Leakers claim that Alert Slider will be a Pro-models-only feature moving forward, and the OnePlus 10T will not come with an Alert Slider.
Moving on to the front, the OnePlus 10T will come with a 6.67-inch AMOLED LTPO 2.0 display with FHD+ resolution, according to the leaker Yogesh Brar. The display will support an adaptive refresh rate of up to 120Hz. Other features of the OnePlus 10T’s display might include support for HDR10+ playback. Unlike the OnePlus 10 Pro, the display of the OnePlus 10T will be flat with no curved edges. The flat panel is one of the reasons why the side rails of the 10T are bigger in size than the Pro model.
According to the leaks, the OnePlus 10T will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. Qualcomm recently launched the improved version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, and it appears that the OnePlus 10T will be one of the first Android smartphones to be powered by this processor.
While we’re yet to go hands-on with the latest Snapdragon chip, some tipsters claim that the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is a much better SoC than the previous generation. Early reports claim that it doesn’t suffer from overheating and can sustain high-performance for long periods of time.
Users can expect the OnePlus 10T to ship with a minimum of 8GB of RAM, going up to 12GB if leaks are to be believed. As for internal storage, we might see units starting with 128GB of base storage with an option to upgrade to 256GB.

Not a lot about the OnePlus 10T’s camera is known right now. Weirdly, the Hasselblad branding is missing in the renders, but the renders aren’t always accurate. Nonetheless, the OnePlus 10T will ship with a triple-camera setup just like the previous-gen flagship. This camera system will consist of a 50MP primary sensor, a 16MP ultra-wide sensor, and a 2MP macro lens. You can expect camera features like Portrait mode, Night mode, Pro mode, and others to be available on the smartphone.
One noticeable change here from the camera module of the OnePlus 10 Pro is that the flash now sits on the top-right corner while on the 10 Pro, it sits on the bottom-right corner. The reason behind this is still unknown at the moment, but it could be to accommodate space for a different (or larger) camera sensor. The center punch-hole cutout in the front will house the phone’s 32MP selfie camera, according to the reports.
The OnePlus 10T is rumored to come with a 4800 mAh battery cell. The interesting bit here is that the OnePlus 10T will reportedly support 150W fast charging. While the flagship OnePlus 10 Pro is only capable of charging at a maximum speed of 80W (65W in some regions), the upcoming OnePlus 10T is said to support OnePlus’s proprietary 150W SuperVOOC charging technology. The only downgrade, in comparison to the OnePlus 10 Pro, is the slightly smaller battery — it is 200 mAh smaller than the 10 Pro’s 5000 mAh cell — and the lack of wireless charging.
Pricing and Availability
At the time of writing this, there has been no official announcement from the company regarding the OnePlus 10T launch. Some rumors suggest that OnePlus could unveil the 10T in July or August. We will update this article as and when the release date of the OnePlus 10T is made official.
For those wondering about the OnePlus 10T’s price, an Amazon listing leak has revealed that the base model of the OnePlus 10T with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage could be priced at £799. The listing also shows that OnePlus will ship the 10T with the charging adapter in the box. However, we recommend you to take this information with a pinch of salt since these things can be forged easily. We will update this page as and when more information about the OnePlus 10T price is available from reliable sources.
OnePlus 10 Pro
OnePlus 10 Pro ships with a 6.7-inch QHD+, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and aims to deliver a unique camera experience with a 150-degree Ultrawide camera and implementations from the second year of the Hasselblad partnership. For $899, it offers capable hardware that can hold its own in the sea of flagship smartphones.
Did You Order a Galaxy Z Flip 4 or Galaxy Z Fold 4?
Pre-orders are taking place for the new Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4, and as we always say, there’s never a better time to order one of these phones than during this period. Seriously, you should do it.
If you have taken advantage of Samsung’s crazy-good trade-in values, store credit and free accessories, the last thing we want to know is which model you ended up going with. In 2022, both are very good options, seen as relatively minor upgrades over last year’s models, but still offering top specs, water resistance, improved hinge designs for more compact designs, and improved software.
I have been using the Z Fold 4 for a week now and have really been enjoying the experience. The battery life has been great, the displays are nice, and the cameras appear to be very good.
Which option are you going with?
How Good is Android 13 on Pixel Phones?
The stable Android 13 update has been out since the beginning of the week and that means a couple of days for you to run it and establish first impressions. I’m curious what those are, as the update is somewhat minor in new features, but huge in terms of bug fixes from Android 12.
To recap, Android 13 dropped on Monday for the Pixel 4, Pixel 4a, Pixel 5, Pixel 5a, Pixel 6, and Pixel 6a. The update was available immediately if you felt like playing in adb, plus we’ve seen it rollout over-the-air as well to some phones. Tim, for example, says he can pull it yet I can’t on my Pixel 6 Pro. Rude, Google.
We talked about all of the new features in Android 13 that you’ll want to be on the lookout for and then spent a lengthy amount of time looking through the list of 150 bugs that Google fixed. Google says it was able to improve “performance, stability, and reliability,” fixed bugs related to charging and Gboard and touch screen palm detection and so much more. Google even says it addressed fingerprint reader performance on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6a.
After browsing through reddit, I can see that a number of folks have been quick to share that their fingerprint reader is indeed faster (Do people really believe this?) and that overall performance and stuttering has improved, especially on older Pixel phones.
What about you? How has Android 13 been running on your Pixel phone this week? Or are you still waiting for it?
Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro Get Major Approval Ahead of Launch
The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro stopped through the FCC this week, marking a big step towards launch that should happen around October, if previous launches are any indicator. The filings don’t reveal much, other than supported network bands and the presence of UWB again, but they do give us model numbers to pin on each phone going forward.
There are four FCC filings of note to dip into under Google’s FCC ID. Those filings give us model numbers of GVU6C, GQML3, GP4BC, and GE2AE. After looking through several of the documents at the FCC, I’m pretty confident in saying that the first two are the Pixel 7 and the last two are the Pixel 7 Pro. The GVU6C Pixel 7 also has an alternate model number of G03Z5 alongside it, as does the Pixel 7 Pro’s GE2AE, where GFE4J can be added to its list.
To recap, we have Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro model numbers as follows:
- PIXEL 7: GVU6C (G03Z5)
- PIXEL 7: GQML3 – mmW
- PIXEL 7 PRO: GP4BC – UWB
- PIXEL 7 PRO: GE2AE (GFE4J) – UWB, mmW
Each phone has all of the proper network bands to work well here in the US, with select models also supporting 5G mmW. The two models supporting mmW are GQML3 (Pixel 7) and GE2AE (Pixel 7 Pro). The others support sub-6 5G, just not the super speedy 5G mmW that you’ll never attach to anyway.
To tell the difference between Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro devices, we really are guessing (assuming) based on the fact that GP4BC and GE2AE have UWB or ultra-wideband support. In the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, only the Pixel 6 Pro had UWB and it looks like that’ll be the case again this year. UWB is used for short-range communications in things like luggage trackers or to help a digital car key talk to a car.
The rest of the big network stuff can be see below, where you’ll find WiFi 6E, NFC, and WPT (wireless power transfer aka wireless charging).
Pixel 7 network bands
Pixel 7 Pro network bands
There isn’t much else to take from this because Google already announced each phone. We’re really just waiting for them to go official, so that we can start playing with their cameras, test Google Tensor 2, and see if Google took are of all of the Pixel 6 line’s modem issues.
If you were hoping this arrival at the FCC would tell us when the Pixel 7 will launch, I’m not sure that it does. The Pixel 6 line hit the FCC in September 2021 and then arrived in October. The Pixel 6a showed up at the FCC in April 2022, was announced in May, and then didn’t ship until July.
