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 OnePlus 12 just leaked again — and with an odd camera change
Leaked OnePlus 12 product renders.

OnePlus is preparing to launch its next flagship phone in the coming months, but a fresh leak predicts an unpleasant surprise. A few weeks ago, purported renders of the OnePlus 12 depicted a phone that borrows heavily from the OnePlus 11 but adds a rectangular lens element at the back to fit a periscope-style telephoto camera.

Now, leaker OnLeaks (via MySmartPrice) has shared updated renders "based on pre-production unit pictures" that don't show any telephoto lens upgrade. Instead, we have three camera lenses with distinct circular lens inlets and a fourth cutout of the same size without any visible lens element on the camera island.

The OnePlus 12 just leaked again, and it sounds incredible

It seems OnePlus won’t have much left to reveal when its next flagship is officially announced next year. After leaking alleged renders of the OnePlus 12, OnLeaks (via SmartPrix) has now dropped the purported specs sheet of the upcoming budget flagship. 

The OnePlus 12 is said to draw power from Qualcomm’s yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor. Rumors suggest it will be based on TSMC’s next-gen 3nm process node, which means a significant performance and efficiency boost can be expected compared to the 4nm-based Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip.

The next flagship from OnePlus might not serve much of an aesthetic surprise, but it just might win over mobile photography enthusiasts. SmartPrix (in collaboration with @OnLeaks) has shared purported renders of the upcoming OnePlus 12 "based on real-life pictures of a testing unit prototype."

Now, before we dig further into the juicy details, here's the standard disclaimer. The leak comes from a reputed source, but the renders depict a testing stage device, of which there could be multiple iterations. That means the final device hitting the shelves could look slightly – or much – different.
