It’s a mix of both good and evil.
An incomprehensible phone is what you get with the OnePlus 10T. In some areas, this rumored device is superior to the OnePlus 10 Pro, while in others, it is inferior. The latest leak reveals that the rumored specifications of this device are truly a mess.
As reported on Weibo(opens in new tab) by Digital Chat Station, who has a good track record of reliable leaks, the new OnePlus 10T has a flat 6.7-inch 1080×2412 OLED screen, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus chipset, a 4,800 mAh battery, an under-display fingerprint scanner as well as dual speakers and a punch-hole front camera.
In contrast, the triple-lens rear camera is said to have a 50MP f/1.8 primary sensor and 8MP and 2MP secondary sensors in addition to the 16MP front-facing camera.
In contrast, the 10T’s cameras and screen appear to be a significant step backwards, and its battery appears to be smaller as well.
Even more confusing, we don’t even know for sure what the OnePlus 10T will be called, with this source stating that’s the “tentative name,” and earlier sources also suggesting they’re not confident it will land as the 10T—it might land as the OnePlus 10 instead, or something else altogether.
According to past leaks, the camera specs on the OnePlus 10 Pro appear to be worse than those on this particular leak, so we’d take this one with a grain of salt. Regardless, it sounds like these cameras will be worse than those on the OnePlus 10 Pro.
An investigation into a perplexing proposition
If the OnePlus 10T’s alleged specs are accurate, then the company may have a difficult time promoting or selling the device.
In order to compete with the OnePlus 10 Pro, it’s likely that it will have to be priced lower than the newer, more powerful, and faster-charging OnePlus 10. A flat FHD+ screen and what appears to be a poor camera system make this phone unable to serve as Samsung’s flagship.
OnePlus may price them similarly and let customers decide what features are most important to them, but this phone is sure to cause more uncertainty for the company’s existing lineup.
