The OnePlus 10T, an upgrade to the phone that was never, will be available in late summer to take up the position left by the 10 Pro by one notch. The OnePlus 10T is in a peculiar position because there was no OnePlus 10 to succeed it and there isn’t one now either. It is better than the 10 Pro in some areas but not quite as good in others.
The improvements are found in places where one would naturally associate OnePlus. Performance-wise, the new model employs the most recent Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, built by TSMC, which offers enhanced speed and efficiency. To get the most out of that processor, it is combined with the most sophisticated cooling system the business has ever produced. The OP10T has a 150W charging capacity, which on paper seems excessive but really makes it one of the fastest charging smartphones we’ve tested.
The 10T does make some compromises in other areas, with the camera being the most important one given that it is not a Pro. A zoom camera is absent from the relatively mediocre configuration (a 3x one is included on the 10 Pro), and the ultrawide camera is a midrange-grade device (if even that). The only camera left with adequate imaging capabilities is the main camera, but even it isn’t particularly cutting edge.
The display, while 120Hz capable, is nevertheless not exactly a flagship feature because it lacks the fine-grained adjustable refresh rate that we have come to anticipate from high-end models.
However, positioning the 10T as a flagship and highlighting the ways in which it falls short of expectations might be disrespectful to its objectives. Its name doesn’t include “Pro” for a purpose, and with a starting price of $650/€740, it’s engaged in a conflict of interest. Let’s monitor its progress.

OnePlus 10T Unboxing
The 10T arrives in a well-known bright red cardboard box, so there are no surprises in the presentation. Additionally, it is a full-size one, which is necessary to accommodate the large power adaptor. Although it has a 160W mark, the phone’s maximum power is only 150W, as was previously reported. The power output will also be regulated at 125W in the US, which is unfortunate. It’s important to note that the charger supports USB power delivery and can output up to 45W through its USB-C connector.
Other than the adaptor and cable that go with it, the box has not had much more in the way of accessories. For what it’s worth, there are a few 1+ stickers.
There isn’t a protective case included, but OnePlus sent us several from their selection of cases, which are available for buy separately. One of them is black and has a texture that resembles the sandstone of the company’s early models, back when they were still trying to distinguish apart from the crowd. The cooling kind is the other, and it is comparable to the one we had for the Oppo Find X5 Pro. It features striped cutouts, and if you used your imagination, you might be able to make out stylized lightning bolts inside of them.
