OnePlus’ newest phone has launched, and you could have a look at our early OnePlus 10T review to see what’s going on with this particular new Android device.
The launch event was one hour . 5 long, and gave us an exhaustive consider the company’s newest mobile, along with OxygenOS 13, a software update that’ll arrived at the business’s phones at some time later on.
The contents of the function weren’t a surprise (although length was) – OnePlus had teased many areas of the phone in advance. We did learn the purchase price for the very first time though, and it’s really less expensive than its sibling the OnePlus 10 Pro.
We live-blogged the complete event – as it is possible to tell from the title to the article – and you could go through our comments on the complete launch below. If you’d like to watch it back, we have helpful information on how exactly to do this here.
We’re nearly prepared to close out the Live Blog, but this is a final consider the device in the Glacier Mat case, which OnePlus says dissipates heat for better cooling. It really screams “gamer,” though maybe at the expense of that cool Moonstone texture.
Finally, this is a super close-up look at that Moonstone Black texture. We’ve hands-on for the OnePlus 10T so that you can check out at this time.
OnePlus talked a whole lot about power and performance, and also the phone’s capability to keep cool when pushing the utmost. As you can plainly see below, I tuned out a little through the live broadcast and made a decision to supply the OnePlus 10T a run because of its money.
I could say that the telephone didn’t get considerably hot, even though I pushed its capabilities to the limit. I also were able to drain the battery, and even though I don’t possess hard numbers, I could let you know the battery charged to 100% between these Live Blog updates. Our full review could have the definitive look on if the OnePlus 10T can match OnePlus battery claims.
Hi folks! It’s Phil Berne on the U.S. side of TechRadar. Our US Editor-in-Chief Lance is on site getting hands-on with the phones, but I’ve a unit readily available and I’m going to be keeping our live look going.
We’ve mostly seen the Jade Green version of the telephone, but I’ve got the Moonstone Black color at hand and listed below are just a few shots showing the cool texture with this phone. It feels very smooth and sanded, not polished like glass however, not rough at all.
You may also start to see the camera lenses close up. We’re a little disappointed that won’t have exactly the same shooting prowess because the OnePlus 10 Pro, but we can not argue with that price! We’ll need to test the cameras to see where they shine.
Okay, I’m signing off now, but will undoubtedly be passing the baton to your US Mobile Editor Philip who’s also got practical the telephone. Expect more analysis and comment on the next few hours.
According to our on-the-ground reporter, OnePlus is putting a substantial amount of showmanship into its device…
This is cool, aside from the mist that made me cough. #OnePlus10T pic.twitter.com/nevdz09xEaAugust 3, 2022
Remember, that’s only a display to hype up the cooling tech. With artificial smoke. And dramatic lighting.
Given that the event has ended, our embargo is up, and we are able to share our early impressions concerning the phone.
Here’s our OnePlus 10T review. It’s an early on impressions piece for the present time, once we haven’t had the telephone long enough to provide our full verdict onto it.
We liked the phone’s display and charging speed, but its fingerprint scanner feels quite temperamental, and the camera isn’t spectacular either. But keep tuned in within the next about a week for the full review.
And the function has ended!
We’ve heard the purchase price.
There’s an 8GB RAM and 128GB storage version thatll ost $649 / 629, and an 16GB and 256GB version that’s $100 / 100 more.
The telephone continues on sale August 25 in Europe but September 29 in america – that’s a significant wait!
Say what you would like about OnePlus’ weird TV-show-parody phone launches that it is used before, but at the very least the were short.
The function continues to be going on, and OnePlus is discussing mobile game championshops and its own red cable club etc.
The OnePlus 10 Pro are certain to get OxygenOS 13 first, though we didn’t hear when. The OnePlus 10T may also obtain it later this season, but following the Pro.
Many of the OxygenOS 13 features we’re hearing about are in fact Android 13 ones that OnePlus has adapted, like Nearby Share for sharing files with people nearby, and also more security tools.
This event is being conducted so, such a long time. Just how long does it try tell us in regards to a single phone, and a little software update?
This OxygenOS 13 part specifically seems horribly extended.
Here’s a good example of how OxygenOS 13 can look, with a few examples of different apps and the primary menu.
OnePlus is mixing up its metaphors a little here. Apparently scrolling through the program is similar to breathing ‘ie Oxygen OS’ but additionally flowing like water.
That is it OnePlus, water or respiration?
Apparently OxygenOS 13, predicated on Android 13, comes with an ‘aquamorphic design’, or predicated on water… whatever which means.
We’ve seen some thematic adverts for this, but no actual types of how Oxygen OS 13 appears like when compared to OS 12.
We’ve heard it’ll have another color scheme though, as it’s predicated on Klein Blue (an extremely blue sort of blue).
It appears like the telephone launch is overall – time too, because we have been looking at exactly the same device for one hour – but we’re moving onto software now. Specifically, we’re hearing about OxygenOS 13.
OnePlus is moving onto design now, another thing we realize about (it looks nearly the same as the OnePlus 10 Pro).
It includes a unibody design, therefore the camera bump is not a separate part – it just extends from the trunk.
You can find two color versions, black and pale green, and the black you have a grippable texture.
The aforementioned are camera samples taken on OnePlus phones over time (not on the 10T).
The cameras with this phone certainly are a 50MP main, 8MP ultra-wide and… some extra macro lens, the latter doesn’t sound great.
They’ve confirmed the display specs, which we didn’t know (besides that brief slide earlier).
It is a 6.7-inch FHD+ 120Hz screen that presents over a billion colors but includes a rather limited max brightness of 950nits.
Next, we’re moving onto the cameras.
That is a significant technical launch and it’s really not absolutely all exciting or interesting.
But our US Editor in Chief is appreciating the surround-video situation OnePlus has going on, which presumably makes the in-person event more interesting.

We’re also hearing about OnePlus’ smart charging, which uses AI to adjust to your charging schedule – additional brands have similar things, like Google because of its Pixels.
The telephone can adjust to climate temperature as well as your schedule to moderate how fast the telephone is powering up.
OnePlus told everyone prior to the event that the telephone could have a 4,800mAh battery and 150W charging, and it’s really discussing that in greater detail at this time.
With all of this talk of processing, let’s see if OnePlus decides to go over its controversial processing throttling practices that people saw in 2021…
Oh, no, we’ve moved onto charging instead.
They’re talking a little more about gaming – clearly performance is really a bit area of the OnePlus 10T.
But if they are spending this long to speak about the processing speed – be aware that we’re already 30m in to the conference – what exactly are they likely to skimp over? Cameras? We think it’s cameras.
OnePlus says that, in the event that you choose the 16GB RAM version of the 10T, it could keep 30 apps open simultaneously…?
I’m uncertain about you, but I don’t believe I have even 35 apps on my phone, in order that seems just a little excessive. But hey, there could be a couple of of you on the market who jump between this many apps at any point, so maybe it’s useful.
Apparently OnePlus has designed an incident that keeps the telephone cool:
Considering those gaps and vents, it appears like this may be quite… cooling? I don’t really understand how it works, in all honesty, nonetheless it looks interesting.
But will this keep carefully the phone cooler than removing the case would? We’ll need to see.
A concern we find with Snapdragon 8-series chipsets is they get super hot incredibly quickly when gaming, and that is something OnePlus is addressing at this time.
Apparently the OnePlus 10T has improved cooling systems to remain cold, which apparently took 18 months to build up. It’s all a little technical, however the gist is this: the OnePlus 10T shouldn’t get too toasty.
Now we’re benefiting from boring stats on what the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 is improved over… something. Likely the 8 Gen 1, most likely the 888 Plus, it isn’t clear.
In any event, that is all sound bites like “20% faster” or “15% quicker”, but this won’t necessarily means it’ll feel different in your hand – that’s something we’ll only have the ability to feel during testing, so await our review for that.
OnePlus has wasted virtually no time in sharing basically all of the specs of its new phone – admittedly it did showcase the majority of this in advance.
There are several things missing – camera sensors for just one, and design specs for another – but it is a fairly well-rounded list.
Now we’re seeing a video that OnePlus shared on its YouTube channel days ago, concerning the history of new features that OnePlus phones have brought.
It’s here (opens in new tab)in order to view it, called “fast and smooth”.
“We hear you loud and clear”
OnePlus has addressed criticism from fans that it is lost its way a bit, and that is certainly something we’ve noticed fans of the brand complaining about. Hopefully the OnePlus 10T will address that.
Oh look, it’s us! (read: it’s me!).
And it’s really finally started! TheCEO of OnePlus America is on stage
The business’s overall CEO, Pete Lau, isn’t attending, but a pre-recorded message from him is broadcasting about OnePlus’ worldwide community.
Weirdly, the function hasn’t started yet – it sounds as if the organisers are quickly grabbing more chairs for the physical attendees.
Here is a view of in the conference center itself – if you are watching the stream, it looks rather small, but since it works out it’s much bigger.
I really do love this venue #OnePlus10T pic.twitter.com/OkeTmGh3fdAugust 3, 2022
We’re also seeing shots of individuals filing right into a conference hall to start to see the launch – that is in NEW YORK, where OnePlus is hosting a physical launch.
Let’s see if we are able to spot US Editor in Chief Lance, who’s at the function personally.
And we’ve begun! Type of
The live stream video has begun, even though event itself hasn’t. We’re just seeing the aforementioned logo with some repetitive music for the present time.
But if you are hurriedly creating a drink or snacks prior to the event, perhaps this beat can help you keep carefully the pace.
The OnePlus 10T live stream has… only 400 people inside it.
Sure, the function hasn’t kicked off yet, but we’re used to seeing thousands viewing streams even this far beforehand. So maybe there’s less of a pastime in the 10T than we expected…
There’s one hour left before launch, so we’re hoping OnePlus’ live stream begins soon.
This season we’ve also seen several OnePlus Nord phones: the Nord 2T, the Nord CE 2 and the Nord CE 2 Lite.
They are all relatively affordable phones, especially by the standards of the 10 Pro, created for individuals who want a couple of top-end features but without paying a higher price.
In China, the OnePlus Ace launched, but that didn’t leave the united states.
The OnePlus 10 Pro is among well known phones of 2022 up to now, therefore the 10T has big boots to check out – though it generally does not appear to be it’s attempting to emulate its older sibling. Rather it appears like it’s attempting to offer an alternative version of it.
That is why there is no zoom camera, a seemingly flat-edge display and an inferior battery – it’s about speed with this new phone, with regards to charging and performance.
The battery and charging information was already confirmed too, and we imagine that’s a thing that is a big draw to these devices.
The energy pack is 4,800mAh, that is pretty big, however the eye-catching spec this is actually the 150W charging.
This is not the initial phone with powering speeds this fast, but we certainly haven’t seen one which powers faster at this time, and we are able to expect to start to see the phone go from empty to full in under 20 minutes.
OnePlus will surely go into greater detail with this at the launch.
One more thing that OnePlus has confirmed may be the lack of an alert slider, a favorite feature of the business’s phones – you can view it on the edge of the OnePlus 10 Pro in the aforementioned photo.
An alert slider is for easily flicking between silent, vibrate or full volume modes for notifications without needing to open your phone. It is simple to transform it onto silent once you head into a gathering, or deactivate it once you go out, without spending ages in menus.
Once we said, it is a popular OnePlus feature, and fans already are upset at its removal.
Another little bit of camera information we realize concerning the OnePlus 10T is that it will not feature the Hasselblad branding that previous OnePlus phones have.
This branding boasted that legacy camera brand Hasselblad had contributed to a few of the camera hardware and software for the telephone, and in the 10 Pro, it manifested as several new camera modes and AI tweakery on the standard photo mode.
It isn’t clear if having less the branding means these modes won’t reappear, or whether it’s this is the marketing aspect that’s changed, and OnePlus likely won’t discuss this on stage. We’ll need to test the telephone ourselves to see.
The OnePlus 10T live stream has kicked off on YouTube, and you will view it here (opens in new tab).
This won’t mean there’s actually a video playing at this time – it’s only a premiere, with the specific video scheduled to start out 15 minutes prior to the event begins.
One more thing that OnePlus has confirmed is that the 10T are certain to get the Sony IMX766 sensor because of its main camera. That is clearly a 50MP snapper that we’ve seen used a lot in cheap phones during the last couple of months.
Actually, we’ve tested it extensively because of phones just like the Realme 9 Pro Plus and Nothing Phone (1). We’ve found it excellent for low-light imagery, at the very least in comparison to other sensors we see found in budget mobiles.
Here are a few images that people took on the Realme phone, to provide a good example of how it performs during the night.
As the sensor sticks out from the crowd for low-light photography, its performance isn’t as impressive in well-lit conditions. It isn’t bad, it just doesn’t stick out from your competition just as much.
We’ll need to hear concerning the OnePlus 10T’s other cameras before we make judgements on its photography prowess though.
OnePlus hasn’t really been shy with information regarding the telephone.
Here’s one big example – it is the phone in green and black (a graphic that OnePlus shared well before the one near the top of this short article).
This is exactly what tell us that the telephone appeared as if the OnePlus 10 Pro, and had three cameras too.
Something that’s interesting is that OnePlus had two launches today.
One was obviously the OnePlus 10T launch – that’s what you’re here for, presumably – however the other was a Chinese-only one for the OnePlus Ace Pro.
However this second launch event has been cancelled at the final minute, and it’s really nearly clear why. What’s doubly odd is that cancellation happened your day after Motorola called off an identical China-only event.
So what’s happening? We have no idea – however the OnePlus 10T launch continues to be going on.
It’s OnePlus 10T launch live blog time at TechRadar, and we’re having the engine running for another launch event – you may still find hours to go before OnePlus’ live stream starts though, so there is no need to warm-up your popcorn at this time.
