OnePlus has returned to the practice of releasing inexpensive smartphones with cutting-edge hardware and along the way revived the T-series of its mobile phones. Announced monoblock 10T with the most advanced processor, large amounts of memory and top-end cameras. At the same time, it costs about 39 thousand rubles.
OnePlus loudly reminded of itself
OnePlus has announced the 10T smartphone, an improved version of its recent flagship OnePlus 10 monoblock. The model is characterized by a very low price, especially compared to other top-end smartphones.
In other words, OnePlus has returned to its roots – since 2014, it has released one “flagship killer” after another. The first few generations of its smartphones gave odds to all its main competitors, but at the same time they cost significantly less. Starting with OnePlus 8, this “magic” stopped working – the company increased prices, and as a result, its mobile phones lost a key advantage over other flagship devices.
OnePlus decided to release the 10T in the global market without much delay. Currently, pre-orders are open, and the start of sales is scheduled for August 25, 2022. In American retail, the smartphone costs $649 (39.1 thousand rubles at the Central Bank rate as of August 4, 2022) memory 8 GB. The 16/256 GB version will cost a little more – $ 749 (45.1 thousand rubles). For comparison, last year’s Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max costs at least $1,099 in the US. This is the most advanced phone in Apple’s current lineup, matching the capabilities of cutting-edge Android-based models, which include the OnePlus 10T.
OnePlus 10T is the company’s new potential bestseller
If we compare 10T in price with offers on the Russian market, then for a similar amount (40 thousand rubles) on August 4, 2022, it was possible to purchase, for example, Xiaomi 11T on the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 Ultra processor. This is a January 2021 6nm CPU that scores around 669k points in AnTuTu 9. In other words, Xiaomi 11T does not belong to the flagship segment, but costs like the top-end OnePlus 10T.
Deposits of modern “iron”
OnePlus built 10T on a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor. This is the most modern and powerful mobile CPU in the world at the time of publication. It debuted in the early summer of 2022. In the AnTuTu 9 benchmark, the processor scores 1.09 million points, in Geekbench 5 – 4140/1310 points in multi-core / single-core mode. According to the main indicators, this CPU is faster than its predecessor Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 sample of December 2021 by an average of 8%.
The processor is produced according to the 4 nm process technology, has eight cores (one Cortex-X2 up to 3.2 GHz, three Cortex-A710 up to 2.5 GHz, four Cortex-A510 up to 1.8 GHz) and an integrated Adreno 730 video subsystem.
