The OnePlus 10T is expected to arrive this year, and one of the big questions about it is whether it will be a lower-end phone or a top-of-the-line OnePlus 10 Pro — and a new pricing leak suggests OnePlus itself can’t really decide.
leaky Tweet embed (Opens in a new tab) Spotted a list of the phone on Amazon UK and shared it with them RootMyGalaxy (Opens in a new tab). The listing has since been removed, but not before the site got a screenshot of it, where we can see a price tag of £799.
That turns out to be around $965 / AU$1,415, but most interestingly the UK price is exactly the same as the starting price of the OnePlus 10 Pro – a phone, for reference, that starts at $899 in the US (which isn’t available in Australia). ).
That appears to be the starting price for the OnePlus 10T as well, as it’s for a model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which is the lowest configuration we’d expect to see – the same basic configuration as the OnePlus 10 Pro. So if this list is correct, it looks like OnePlus might be selling the two phones for exactly the same price.
This list includes some other specs as well, if you want an idea of what you’ll get for your money. In addition to RAM and storage, it lists a Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset, a FHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, a triple-lens camera with a 50MP primary sensor, and 5G.
The OnePlus 10T listed here is also said to come in Moonstone Black, and includes a charger and case in the box. However, we take all this with a pinch of salt – early menus can be wrong, and since the menu has been removed, we also can’t verify that the screenshot hasn’t been edited.
Analysis: choose your priorities
Assuming that price is accurate, and the various spec leaks we’ve heard are also, it appears that OnePlus plans to charge the same amount for the 10T as the 10 Pro, even though the OnePlus 10T has a lower-resolution display, smaller battery, and a shoddy camera setup.
On the other hand, the OnePlus 10T is reported to have a more powerful chipset and faster charging. So the choice may boil down to the specifications you value most.
It’s also possible that the OnePlus 10 Pro will get a price cut at the launch of the OnePlus 10T, which will position the new model as a flagship OnePlus flagship, but then you’ll be in a position to pay more for specs that are inferior in some areas.
Matching pricing might make sense, but it could also make the OnePlus 10T a tough sell, given that anyone interested in the new OnePlus flagship has spent months buying the OnePlus 10 Pro, and the 10T doesn’t seem like that much of an upgrade overall – it’d be interesting to see where it stands.
