Here’s why OnePlus 10T 5G is the ultimate flagship smartphone of the year

The launch of the OnePlus 10T 5G is almost upon us and we have a fair idea of what the phone’s key specifications will be. A successor to the OnePlus 10 range, this new handset will come with the top-of-the-line Snapdragon processor. And if that wasn’t enough, there are upgrades in other departments as well. Together, all these features look set to make the OnePlus 10T 5G, the most desirable smartphone on the market. The premium smartphone will soon be seen giving other flagships a run for their money. But before that, let us give you a lowdown on all the things that have us excited about the launch of this phone.

150W SUPERVOOC Endurance Edition – Fuelled and ready to go in minutes!

The company has revealed that the OnePlus 10T 5G will follow the 10R 5G in adopting the ridiculously fast 150W SUPERVOOC Endurance Edition charging standard. In case you can’t fathom the kind of power that such an apparatus can offer, it is capable of providing the phone with an entire day’s power in just 10 minutes. And it can take the 4,800mAh battery of the OnePlus 10T 5G from 1 percent to 100 percent in just 19 minutes.

That incredible charging speed is a godsend for those who don’t like their phone being tethered to the charger over long periods. Instead of charging your phone overnight, you can hook it up to the charger every morning and it will be full by the time you’ll take your shower. You’d also be pleased to know that the OnePlus 10T 5G will ship with a 160W SUPERVOOC power adapter and a USB-C cable in the box.

If you’re worried about the potential harm that this kind of fast charging will bring to the battery, your fears are unfounded. To assure you of this, the phone ships with the Battery Health Engine, an exclusive feature that is designed to extend the lifespan of the battery and preserve its capacity over the coming years. It ensures that the OnePlus 10T 5G will retain at least 80 percent of its original capacity after 1,600 charge cycles. In case you haven’t quantified that yet, it’s the equivalent of four years of usage.

Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 – Most powerful chipset for power users

The 10T 5G is the first phone from OnePlus to come with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. This SoC represents the bleeding edge of mobile silicon technology. Having been crafted with the 4nm process, it boasts a top clock speed of 3.2GHz on its octa-core processor. Compared to its predecessor, which is already a beast in its own right, this apparatus offers 10 percent better CPU performance and 30 percent improved power efficiency. Expect snappy app opening times, zippy navigation of the interface, and an overall uninterrupted experience from the phone, no matter if you’re conducting your daily tasks or indulging in high-end online games.

Speaking of games, they will benefit greatly from the Adreno 730 GPU onboard the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip. It brings 10 percent faster GPU clock speeds as well as support for HDR gaming. And there’s a 30 percent improvement in GPU power efficiency as well, ensuring that gaming over long hours won’t suck much battery life out of your device. All this hardware is accompanied by the fourth-gen Snapdragon X65 5G modem-RF system, which is advanced enough to provide speeds of up to 10Gbps. This makes the OnePlus 10T 5G more than ready to make the most of the 5G services that are expected to hit India in the coming months.

16GB RAM – Extra memory for a silky-smooth performance

OnePlus has confirmed that the top model of the OnePlus 10T 5G will ship with 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM at its heart. That’s another aspect of the phone that will do wonders for its performance. At a time when other flagships are maxing out at 12GB of RAM, OnePlus’ decision to equip the device with 16GB worth of memory really gives it a big edge over the competition. Thanks to such hardware, the OnePlus 10T 5G will be able to suspend more than 35 applications at once for faster, smoother, and uninterrupted multitasking. Think about it; an app you perhaps opened three days ago will still be available in the Recents menu three days later in the same state you left it in.

OnePlus has also revealed that the phone’s 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM will be complemented by up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 two-lane storage. This means a significant rise in write speeds and a drop in power consumption levels for users of the 10T 5G. Both these aspects of the phone should indeed appeal to those who demand top-notch performance from their handsets.

Launch details and how to watch

Even without an official reveal, the OnePlus 10T 5G has shaped up to be the device to beat this year. We can’t wait for the launch event, where we’ll get to know more about its hardware and its all-important price.
