OnePlus is finally launching a lower-cost non-Pro version, the 10T 5G, half a year after unveiling its flagship smartphone. While still a premium handset, it lowers the launch price of its Pro counterpart, improving some features (and downgrading many others).

The handset has a 6.7-inch, 1,080 x 2,412 AMOLED display that can be re-enabled based on content. The screen also has a 360Hz touch response rate, 10-bit color depth, and HDR10+ support.

Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 (the 10 Pro has the non-plus version) is coupled with up to 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The company developed a unique cooling system for the 10T, which has the largest vapor chamber in any of its phones.

OnePlus even dropped the Hasselblad branding and software features. On the back, there's a 16-megapixel fixed-focus camera located in a hole-punch cutout.

Other notable downgrades to the Pro version include the absence of a alert slider, the absence of Wi-Fi 6E support, and a somewhat modest IP54 rating.

The OnePlus 10T has a decently-sized 4,800 mAh battery that supports 150W fast charging, with a full charge likely to take only 19 minutes, although the phone can charge from one to 100 percent of its capacity after 1,600 charging cycles, according to the company.

The phone will come with Android 12-based OxygenOS 12.1 already installed, and the company expects three major Android updates and four years of security upgrades.

The OnePlus 10T 5G will be available in Moonstone Black and Jade Green, with pre-orders in the United States starting on September 1 and deliveries beginning on September 29. Pricing starts at $649 for the 8GB / 128GB variant, while the 12GB / 256GB version will cost $749.
