How to pre-order the OnePlus 10T

The OnePlus 10T, OnePlus’ performance flagship for 2022, is here. Following weeks of endless leaks and rumors, OnePlus formally announced the phone on August 3. It did so in big fashion, hosting an extravagant launch event in New York City — OnePlus’s first in-person gathering in over two years. The big change this year, of course, is support for AT&T’s 5G networks, which has now been turned on. You can’t buy your OnePlus 10T directly from AT&T, but if you’re looking to put your existing SIM in your new phone, rest assured that it’ll work.

But while the OnePlus 10T was unveiled at the start of August, pre-orders didn’t open until September 1. So that meant you had to wait. Thankfully, that waiting period is now over. Unfortunately, it does mean the start of a whole new waiting period since the phone won’t be finally available until September 29. OnePlus is really making us wait for this phone, so just try not to get impatient.

Here’s how you can pre-order the OnePlus 10T and what bonuses you can get with your early purchase.

Pre-ordering from OnePlus

OnePlus is the natural place to grab your pre-order — and for good reason. OnePlus is cutting $100 off the 256GB storage model of the OnePlus 10T, effectively giving you a free upgrade to the most advanced version of the phone. You can also grab up to $250 off by trading in an eligible smartphone — $50 by linking your existing OnePlus device — and you can save 50% on the OnePlus Buds Pro or Buds Z2 when you buy your phone. That’s a hefty suite of offers, and worth cashing in on.

Pre-ordering from Amazon

Amazon is a good place to buy your OnePlus 10T, as long as you have a specific reason for it, like vouchers. Otherwise, it’s basically offering the same deal as OnePlus, with $100 off the 256GB model, basically giving you a free upgrade. Aside from that, there’s not much reason to buy from Amazon, as they’re not yet giving you anything to match OnePlus’ deals and aren’t currently offering anything other than an upfront price.

Pre-ordering from Best Buy

Best Buy is looking like a slightly better place to buy your new phone, and that’s largely because it’s sticking by OnePlus’s free upgrade to the 256GB model (as long as you activate later) and trade-in bonus. You can grab a trade-in bonus all the way up to the OnePlus 10T’s value, but Best Buy won’t want to credit any trade-in over the value of the phone itself, so you might need to be careful what you trade in.

The best OnePlus 11 cases: top 5 cases you need to buy
OnePlus 11 in OnePlus's official sandstone case.

OnePlus is back, and it's brought an incredible device with it. The OnePlus 11 has kicked off 2023 in a very strong way, and is really setting a high bar for everyone else to follow. A flagship-level Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor combines with 16GB of RAM, a beautiful design, and a revamped Hasselblad-tuned camera module that's as capable as it is huge. With prices starting at $699, you also don't have to break the bank to buy one of the best phones in 2023.

But even with the low price for a flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 11 isn't a phone you'll want to throw around. If you want your phone to make it through to your next upgrade without chips, cracks, or breakages, then it's worth looking at some protective options. A good case or cover can really keep your smartphone safe, shielding it from bumps, scratches, and drops. Some cases even bring extra utility to your smartphone, adding wallet capabilities, kickstands, and other useful features. Here are some of the best OnePlus 11 cases you can buy!

Does the OnePlus 11 have eSIM? Everything you need to know

The OnePlus 11 is the latest premium smartphone from OnePlus and is crammed with generational upgrades in every area. The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, faster charging that tops up the large 5,000mAh battery in around 30 minutes, and more efficient storage and RAM are just some of the many upgrades we see on the flagship phone.

On the connectivity front, the OnePlus 11 gets a broader set of supported 5G frequency bands, Bluetooth 5.3, and theoretical support for Wi-Fi 7, which will be activated later following regulatory approvals per region. But there's one connectivity question on many people's minds: Does the OnePlus 11 have eSIM? We've yet to see a OnePlus device ship with eSIM support — including last year's OnePlus 10T and OnePlus 10 Pro. eSIM is a handy feature to have and can be a great convenience, so is it available on the OnePlus 11?
