In Phones by Ramon LopezLeave a Comment

OnePlus‘ latest high-powered smartphone that “evolves beyond speed” is coming to the Philippines. Following its global launch earlier this month and the OPPO sub-brand’s recent announcement that it is officially entering the Philippines, the OnePlus 10T 5G is set to go on sale at local retail starting tomorrow, August 26, on Shopee and from September 9 on Lazada.

(Update, September 13: Our OnePlus 10T 5G review is up!

Available in Moonstone Black and Jade Green colors, the OnePlus 10T 5G is priced at P35,990 (around $642 converted) for 8GB LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The top-shelf variant is paired with 16GB RAM — more than what the OnePlus 10 Pro 5G offers — and 256GB storage and is arriving in the country, too, but at a later date.

The new model’s highlights include the most powerful mobile chipset yet from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, a 120Hz adaptive AMOLED display, and super-fast cable charging courtesy of the proprietary SuperVOOC Endurance Edition technology. The latter can deliver up to 150 watts of power — that’s not a typo! — to the OnePlus 10T 5G, charging it to about 67% after just 10 minutes plugged in, or full capacity in roughly 17 minutes.

Equipped with powerful specs!

Sounds promising indeed, but how’s our experience with the 10T 5G so far? We share our early impressions here to give you an idea of what to expect from the latest — and fastest — OnePlus flagship.

Unboxing the OnePlus 10T 5G

The OnePlus 10T 5G ships in a familiar red OnePlus retail packaging. It’s probably bigger than it needs to be given what’s inside. And though it’s nothing special, the color is eye-catching nonetheless and evokes a sense of speed and peak performance — hardly surprising considering the industry-leading specs we mentioned.

If you’re familiar with previous OnePlus models, then you basically know what you’re in for here. You won’t find a protective case or a set of wired earphones in the box, but at least it includes a fast charger that maximizes the 10T’s potential. Tucked inside the phone packaging are the following:

  • OnePlus 10T 5G unit
  • 160W SuperVOOC fast charger
  • USB-C cable
  • Eject tool
  • OnePlus stickers
  • Welcome letter
  • Quick start guide
  • Warranty card
  • Safety information

The smartphone doesn’t come with earphones, so you need to purchase them separately if you don’t have any lying around. In case you do decide to go that route, make sure to buy a wireless set, because this model doesn’t have a headphone jack.

The box doesn’t have a case inside, too, so if you need one that will fit your 10T to a tee, we highly suggest you pick up the Bumper Case Sandstone or Glacier Mat case from OnePlus. Available in gray, the Glacier Mat bumper uses heat-dissipation material to keep your device cool while gaming or running power-intensive apps, or just charging using the included high-performance charger.

As for the unit itself, the OnePlus 10T 5G in the Jade Green colorway we have has a glossy, reflective finish, meaning it catches and shows fingerprints throughout daily use, unlike the Moonstone Black edition, which sports a smooth, sandstone-like surface. The back also gets a triple-camera setup with dedicated sensors for ultrawide and macro shots. The main camera on the top-left corner packs a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 sensor and performs well in daylight conditions, even without AI enhancements.

There’s no telephoto lens here, and the tertiary shooter is only two megapixels, but our experience with the device so far makes us think that the 10T 5G should still make a photography enthusiast’s shortlist. The 10T’s camera configuration is similar to what the Nord 2T has, except instead of a portrait sensor, you’re looking at a macro unit.

On the flip side, the punch-hole camera of the 10T fits a 16-megapixel sensor for selfies. The front cam has a fixed focus and an f/2.4 aperture, but it offers EIS or electronic image stabilization in case you need to shoot a vlog or TikTok video. You can check out some of our sample shots above.

The frame is plastic, but it also affords some minor shock resistance when dropped on the side and certainly contributes to the phone’s weight. At the bottom, you’ll see the primary speaker, Type-C port, and SIM tray.

Elsewhere, the OnePlus 10T 5G sports stereo speakers that can get plenty loud. The top earpiece speaker adds an extra channel (for the highs), which is a plus if you use the built-in speaker for streaming shows, movies, YouTube videos, and podcasts.
