The OnePlus 10T 5G is the Fastest Charging Smartphone Ever

OnePlus has officially announced the 10T 5G, and unlike the company’s last flagship smartphone, it will be widely available in the US from the start.

Spec-wise, the new handset shares a lot of the same features as the OnePlus 10 Pro, including the same overall design, exact dimensions, and 6.7-inch 120Hz AMOLED display. The main difference, however, is OnePlus has removed the notification slider to make way for 15 antennas for steadier Wi-Fi and cellular connections, no matter how the device is oriented.

OnePlus also decided to forgo the alert slider to fit a larger battery in the 10T 5G, bringing the phone’s battery capacity up to 4,800mAh. Every OnePlus 10T 5G comes with a 160W SuperVOOC power adapter and a USB-C cable, so it can power 150W charging when plugged into a 220v or higher power socket.

With just 10 minutes of 125W SUPERVOOC charging, we saw the OnePlus 10T 5G was able to replenish 52% of its total battery life. And in 19 minutes, you can get a full charge. Oddly for all its charging superpowers, this phone doesn’t support wireless charging at all.

The OnePlus 10T 5G has also seen a slight bump in processing and graphics power thanks to a newer Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip. The base model includes 8GB of RAM, although there is a higher capacity version with 16GB, which helps keep up to 35 apps loaded into the cache for faster multitasking.

OnePlus has also remixed the 10T 5G’s cameras a bit. It now features a main 50MP wide-angle camera with a Sony IMX766 sensor – also seen on a few recent handsets like the Nothing Phone and Asus Zenfone 9. While the rest of the phone’s rear camera complement consists of an 8MP wide camera and a 2MP macro camera. That of course leaves out a dedicated telephoto camera so the zoom camera on this device is completely digital.
