The OnePlus 10T is expected to arrive this year, and one of the big questions surrounding it is whether it will be a higher-end or high-end handset than the OnePlus 10 Pro – and a new price leak suggests OnePlus itself can’t really decide. .
Leak @passionategeekz (opens in new tab) located a phone listing on Amazon UK and shared it with RootMyGalaxyName (opens in new tab). The listing has since been removed, but not before the site got a screenshot, in which we can see a price tag of £799.
That converts to roughly $965 / AU$1,415, but what’s more interesting is that the UK price is exactly the same as the starting price of the OnePlus 10 Pro – a phone that, for reference, starts at $899 US USA (not available in Australia).
This appears to be the starting price of the OnePlus 10T too, as it’s for a model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which is the lowest configuration we’d expect to see – and the same basic configuration as the OnePlus 10 Pro. So if this listing is correct, it looks like OnePlus might sell both phones for exactly the same price.
This listing also includes some other specs if you want to get 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, an 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 said to also come in a Moonstone Black hue and include a charger and case in the box. However, we’d take all of this with a pinch of salt – the first few listings could be wrong, and since the listing has been removed, we can’t verify that the screenshot has not been edited either.
Analysis: choose your priorities
Assuming this pricing is accurate, and the various spec leaks we’ve heard are too, OnePlus apparently plans to charge for both the 10T and 10 Pro, despite the OnePlus 10T having a lower resolution display, a smaller battery, and a smaller configuration. bottom camera.
On the other hand, the OnePlus 10T reportedly has a more powerful chipset and faster charging. So the choice can come down to the specs you value most.
It’s also possible that the OnePlus 10 Pro will receive a price cut when the OnePlus 10T launches, which would position the new model as OnePlus’ flagship flagship, but you’re in a position to pay more for specs that in some areas are lower.
So identical pricing might make sense, but it might also make the OnePlus 10T a hard sell, as anyone interested in a new OnePlus flagship has had months to buy the OnePlus 10 Pro, and the 10T doesn’t feel like much of an upgrade on the market. overall – it will be interesting to see where it ranks in our list of the best OnePlus phones.
