Last week leakster Max J wrote that OnePlus has only one flagship left to unveil this year – the OnePlus 10T 5G (code name “Ovaltine”). So far the company has released only the 10 Pro (in January) and it was alone, no vanilla, no Ultra models. The 10T will presumably take the spot of the vanilla model with a smaller display, though not much is known about it.
As is sometimes the case with the T-editions, the new model will bring an upgraded chipset – a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, according to another leakster, Abhishek Yadav. The Ultra was rumored to use the 8+ chip, but it’s not clear what happened to that model or if it ever existed. For what it’s worth when Qualcomm announced the new chipset, it listed a number of companies working on 8+ Gen 1 devices to be released in Q3 (July-September), and OnePlus was among them.
OnePlus has not released a T Pro phone since the 7 series and it sounds like it won’t do so this year either. Which will leave the OnePlus 10T 5G with a faster chipset than the best Pro model in the company’s line-up.
The 10T is also expected to feature faster charging – 150W like on the 10R, up from 80W on the 10 Pro. But it’s quite unlikely that the 10T will feature a better camera setup, so the 48+50+8MP Hasselblad camera on the 10 Pro may be as good as it gets from OnePlus this year.
