OnePlus has announced the date for the launch of its second global flagship smartphone of 2022 – the OnePlus 10T 5G – and a new iteration of its operating system, OxygenOS 13. The device and software will launch in Gotham Hall, New York City, on August 3rd.
The launch will be OnePlus’ first in-person launch since the pandemic.
The OnePlus 10T device carries the letter “T”, which according to the smartphone company, represents a total performance upgrade. According to OnePlus,
“With OnePlus the 10T, we’re taking this concept to the next level – evolving the device’s upgrades beyond improvements to speed alone by leveraging new technologies to deliver key advancements to the OnePlus experience.”
The company is associating the OnePlus 10T launch with the slogan “Evolve Beyond Speed”, and the reason it gives for this is that it has focused on doing more than just delivering better speed with the OnePlus 10T. This time OnePlus is focused on delivering smarter speed.
The OnePlus 10T is powered by Qualcomm’s latest and most advanced Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 Mobile Platform, designed to offer users higher performance with less power consumption.
The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 Mobile Platform is an advanced 5G platform that features the Snapdragon X65 5G Modem-RF System, which unlocks unprecedented download speeds of up to 10 Gbps while supporting all-day power.
The OxygenOS 13 software will be launched alongside the OnePlus 10T. The operating system delivers OnePlus’s signature fast and smooth experience with “a refreshing design and enhanced safety.”
OxygenOS 13 retains features of the OnePlus device users are accustomed to, such as the OnePlus’ selection of always-on displays (AODs) and Zen Mode. It also comes with novel optimizations and improvements.
According to OnePlus, the OxygenOS 13 will unlock gaming, connectivity, and customization improvements, to name a few. OxygenOS 13 will first be released on the OnePlus 10 Pro before being followed by a release for the OnePlus 10T later in the year.
The OnePlus 10T launch event at Gotham Hall in New York City will feature the usual launch event goodies OnePlus is known for. A ticket purchase will entitle an attendee to OnePlus merchandise, including the highly rated OnePlus Nord Buds.
