Following weeks of leaks and teasers, OnePlus officially introduced the OnePlus 10T smartphone today. Priced at $649, the OnePlus 10T goes against the likes of Samsung Galaxy S22 and Google Pixel 6. For those looking for an Android device with flagship-grade specs and a not-so-high price tag, the OnePlus 10T is a great option. Read along and learn more about the ‘T’ variant of the OnePlus 10 lineup.
OnePlus 10T carries the same unibody design as the 10 Pro flagship, with the camera array blending into the side frame of the smartphone. The remaining aspects of the smartphone are pretty similar as well. The flat top is still present, while at the bottom, you will find the speaker grille, USB C port, and SIM tray. The left-hand side has the volume rockers, while the right side remains home to the power button.
One key thing to note here is that the OnePlus 10T does not come with an Alert Slider. OnePlus says it had to take this trade-off as the removal of the alert slider allowed the company to deliver key advancements while maintaining a thin and light form factor. Those wondering about these key advancements, they come in the form of a large battery capacity and better antenna signal.
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 comes with a plastic frame. The smartphone still sports a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 back, but the side frames are built out of plastic, making the device less premium than the 10 Pro.
Moving onto the front, the OnePlus 10T comes with a 6.7-inch Fluid AMOLED display with FHD+. The display supports an adaptive refresh rate of up to 120Hz, allowing the smartphone to adjust between 120 Hz, 90 Hz, and 60 Hz depending on the type of content being consumed to save battery life. In addition, the display boasts a 1000Hz touch sampling rate and a peak brightness of 950 nits.
Now on to the camera system of the OnePlus 10T, the smartphone comes with a triple-camera setup on the back. This setup includes a 50 MP Sony IMX766 primary camera, an 8 MP ultra-wide camera angle lens with 120-degree FoV, and a 2MP macro lens. While the hardware doesn’t sound very impressive on paper, OnePlus says the 10T comes with many software features like Image Clarity Engine and Super HDR that allow the smartphone to capture sharp and vibrant shots.
To learn more about the image quality and camera performance, please look forward to our full review of the OnePlus 10T on both Pocketnow’s YouTube Channel and website.
As revealed earlier, OnePlus’ latest flagship is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor. This processor one-ups the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 on the 10 Pro and offers up to 3.2 GHz peak CPU speeds with 30% improved CPU and GPU efficiency. The company is also shipping its next-generation 3D Cooling System in the 10T, which it claims will work towards ensuring the smartphone remains cool and comfortable while avoiding any kind of throttling.
The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor is coupled with 8 or 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128 or 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage. It also comes with a HyperBoost Gaming Engine that ensures games run smoothly on your device. Finally, the OnePlus 10T runs on Android 12-based OxygenOS 12.1. OnePlus says the 10T will receive three major Android OS updates and four years of security updates.
The OnePlus 10T is powered by a 4800 mAh battery. While the smartphone does not support wireless charging, OnePlus has included support for its 150W SUPERVOOC fast charging (125W in the North American region). OnePlus says the 10T can be fully charged from 0-100% in just under 20 minutes. The charger also supports the PD charging protocol, meaning you will be able to charge your laptops, tablets, and mobile gaming consoles using the OnePlus 10T’s power adapter.
For those wondering about heat, the OnePlus 10T comes with a Battery Health Engine that ensures the maximum charging current stays within a safe range. There’s also Battery Healing Technology that continuously repairs electrodes during charge cycles to preserve the battery’s capacity.
Price, Colors, and Availability
OnePlus 10T has been priced at $649 in the United States. The smartphone will be available in two variants: a base model that offers 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage and another unit that comes with 16GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The higher-end variant will be available for $749. Those wondering about the colors, the OnePlus 10T will be available in two colors: Moonstone Black with a rocky texture and Jade Green, which comes with a ceramic-like finish.
One important thing to note here is that the OnePlus 10T will only be available for pre-orders starting next month, i.e., September 1, while open sales will begin September 29. It will be available on most of the major online retailers, including OnePlus.com, Amazon, and Best Buy, while carrier availability will be announced closer to the sale date.
What’s in the box?
Unlike other smartphone brands, OnePlus, thankfully, still ships the 10T with a charging adapter in the box. In addition to the phone itself, the box contains a 160W fast charging adapter (the phone will still charge at 150W or 125W), one USB Type-C cable, Type-A to Type-C adapter, a SIM tray ejector, safety information, and the warranty card. Moreover, the phone comes with a screen protector pre-applied, which is a nice touch.

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.
Verizon’s Visible Added a Sweet New Visible+ Plan
From the day it launched back in 2018, Verizon’s Visible has had a single plan that costs just $40/mo. Visible has continued to update and upgrade the plan over the years, but that price has always stuck and it remained the only plan option for those looking at Verizon’s “all-digital wireless carrier.” Today, Visible is making a big move – we now have 2 plans.
Visible announced today that they offer two plans: Visible and Visible+. Visible is a similar offering to the old Visible plan, only now it costs $30/mo instead of $40. For Visible+, a couple of additional features and upgrades will cost you $45/mo.
So what are the differences between Visible and Visible+? I have the visual breakdown for you below, but the basics are that the regular Visible plan is going to be for those who don’t need a super speedy 5G experience and who don’t travel outside of the US much. The only network access you get is on 5G nationwide and LTE, where your connection could be slowed if in heavy trafficked areas. It still has talk and text to Mexico and Canada.
The Visible+ plan adds unlimited calling and texting to Canada and Mexico, roaming use when in those two countries, calling from the US to 30+ other countries, texting to 200+ countries, and premium 5G connections. The “Premium Network Experience” from Visible+ means access to 5G Ultra Wideband (both mmW and C-Band) from Verizon’s network in an unlimited capacity. When on the 5G Nationwide of LTE networks, you’ll get 50GB of data to use before possibly being slowed.
Both plans also offer unlimited mobile hotspot with a 5Mbps speed cap and Spam Protection.
Visible vs. Visible+ Plans
Taxes and fees are included in both prices on these plans, so you’ll pay $30 or $45 each month. Both plans are also live right away, in case you want to sign-up. Visible supports eSIM now as well, so if you were interested in trying them, you can do so without a physical SIM card.
WhatsApp Testing Undo Delete Feature on Android
WhatsApp is testing a new feature for select Android beta users, allowing folks to undo accidental message deletions.
Similar to Gmail’s feature, which lets you unsend emails within a couple seconds of sending, this function will let you un-delete messages you send tot he trash, so long as you do so within the first few seconds. To use, once you delete a message, you’ll see a floating menu pop up on the bottom of the UI. From here you can click “undo.”
Again, this is only for a few beta testers at the moment, but we can’t imagine WhatsApp won’t make it available across the board soon enough. It’s a sweet feature.
Now I want this for Telegram.
