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.

How I learned to love the OnePlus 11’s controversial software
The OnePlus 11's screen.

When I picked up the OnePlus 10 Pro, I missed the old OxygenOS immediately. Gone was the fluid and feature-light software that made OnePlus phones such a great experience, replaced by the heavy, slower, and more annoying ColorOS-inspired software few liked as much. I liked it even less on the OnePlus 10T, and I wasn’t the only one.

I really like the OnePlus 11, but I wasn’t expecting to like OxygenOS 13 much. My early impression of ColorOS 13 was good, but I didn’t trust the newly Oppo-ified OnePlus enough to think it would carry over. But after using, and loving, the OnePlus 11 for several weeks, I no longer feel any animosity towards OxygenOS. Have I simply become used to it, or has the software actually got better?
What’s the problem with OxygenOS?

This is the cheaper (and cooler) OnePlus 11 you wish you could buy
OnePlus 11R, a cheaper OnePlus 11, at the Cloud 11 event in India.

The OnePlus 11, in many ways, attempts to do over the shortcomings of the previous OnePlus flagships. While the OnePlus 11 feels closer to OnePlus's once-revered form, the company's strategy to launch flagship killers in niche markets such as India and China still keeps older OnePlus users attracted to the brand, despite its evolution in recent years. The OnePlus 11R — a $200 cheaper OnePlus 11 — is the latest phone that fits the picture that OnePlus purists long for.

OnePlus has spent the last few years facing the odds. By pivoting into the budget segment with its Nord series, OnePlus has been able to sell more units but at the cost of losing its grip on the "never settle" identity. OnePlus, which once enjoyed a cultdom for its clean software and hardware portraying parsimony, has attempted to keep fans in price-conscious markets (especially in Asia) with its R suffix series.

Why now is the perfect time for the OnePlus Pad
The OnePlus Pad tablet with Stylo stylus and keyboard cover.

OnePlus, the popular smartphone brand, is dipping its toes into the tablet market with the launch of the all-new, gorgeously designed OnePlus Pad. The move comes at a time when Google is making significant changes to Android to improve the tablet experience for users (plus laptops and foldables, too!).

With the launch of the OnePlus Pad, OnePlus is poised to benefit from these changes, while also feeding into its own broader ecosystem of devices and services. At the same time, the launch coincides with slowing growth in the tablet market, making it a risky move for the company -- but one which could pay off well.
