The OnePlus 10T (and OxygenOS 13) are officially launching on August 3

The OnePlus T series is making a comeback with the OnePlus 10T. Rumors surrounding the 10T have been rampant, but now, OnePlus is finally ready to reveal the smartphone in full during a New York-based launch event. The event is scheduled for August 3, and we can expect to finally get confirmation on the smartphone’s full specs. While there are a handful of things we do know, there are still a lot of mysteries surrounding the device.

OnePlus did confirm that the 10T will be running on the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor. That’s a nice step forward for the 10T as it’s Qualcomm’s latest chipset, although it’s likely to be outclassed later this year when the rumored Gen 2 gets revealed. Nonetheless, it puts the 10T in a place to be OnePlus’ fastest flagship.

Rumor has it that the OnePlus 10T will feature three camera lenses: a 50-megapixel main lens, an 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP macro. Its 6.7-inch display is claimed to support a dynamic refresh rate that hits up to 120Hz. Add in rumors of 150-watt super fast charging and the 10T could be one of the best smartphones for the second half of 2022.

Luckily, the OnePlus 10T isn’t just launching with excellent specs, but also with a major OS update. Also scheduled to be revealed on August 3, OnePlus will be launching OxygenOS 13 alongside the 10T. The new OS update will be the most customizable version of the software yet while still bringing the features fans have come to expect from OnePlus devices (such as the always-on-display and Zen modes).

If OxygenOS 13 is able to be on par with Google’s ‘normal’ Android 13 update and iOS 16, then the OnePlus 10T could be a big hit. That said, there are still far too many questions about the smartphone to be able to say for certain. Luckily, answers will be coming soon.

The OnePlus 10T and OxygenOS 13 reveal event will happen in New York City on August 3, 2022. The event kicks off at 10 a.m. ET/7 a.m. PT for those watching at home.

The OnePlus 12 is the OnePlus phone I’ve been waiting for
A person holding the OnePlus 12.

Since it arrived, the OnePlus 12 has been sitting on a shelf, unused, behind my desk. Apart from a few days when I tested out the camera, battery, and performance, I haven't had a chance to really dig into the phone.

Don’t mistake this for indifference, though. I’ve been itching to use it for more than just those early few days, but due to various reasons, it hasn’t been possible until now. Was it worth the wait?
Why did it have to wait?

OnePlus just fixed a big issue with the OnePlus Watch 2

Owners of the OnePlus Watch 2 are about to receive a new software update that will improve the smartwatch in one key way. The OHealth v4.21.5 update adds a data migration feature that allows switching phones without losing health data, which wasn't possible previously. Android Authority first spotted the update.

Google's Wear OS 4 launched with the new data migration feature. However, it wasn't available on the OnePlus Watch 2 until now. Once you install the update, you can see a new option called "Migrate data" in the profile settings. To use this new tool, your old and new phones must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. You will also need to scan a QR code to initialize the migration process. If you are logged into the OHealth app, make sure that you sign in to the same account on both devices before migrating the data.

The OnePlus Watch 2 is the Wear OS smartwatch I’ve been waiting for

The OnePlus Watch 2 -- the company's first Wear OS watch -- has entered a market that Samsung dominates. However, OnePlus' popularity as a smartphone brand can be expected to bring small, yet meaningful changes that benefit not only OnePlus users, but all of the Wear OS segment in general.

For almost a decade, Samsung and Apple have predominantly been the default options if you want a smartwatch that is actually useful and goes beyond flashy features. With Samsung shifting gears and migrating from its own Tizen OS to the (relatively) more universal Wear OS platform and Google releasing its own Pixel Watch after struggling with an identity crisis in the smartwatch world, the platform has much more traction than it did a few years ago. As OnePlus carves its way into the segment, it has the opportunity to entice people who don't wish to live within Samsung's limitations when using a Galaxy Watch with another brand's phone.
