Is anyone more excited about tomorrow’s OnePlus 10T New York City launch than Samsung’s big August 10 announcement of the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Z Fold 4? Well, maybe you should be, as despite what the non-Pro name might suggest, this T-branded bad boy is confirmed to improve on the company’s latest flagship in a few key departments.
So… much… speed
You’re looking at just 19 minutes of wall-hugging to get a reasonably large 4,800mAh battery from 0 to 100 percent capacity and an incredible 10 minutes to squeeze “a day’s worth of power” out of said cell… in Europe, India, and “many other territories across the globe.”
Due to regional power outlet limitations, future OnePlus 10T 5G owners in North America will have to “settle” for 120W charging speeds taking the same 4,800mAh battery from empty to full in 20 minutes instead of 19 while somehow still delivering “a day’s power” after 10 minutes of plugged-in activity.
On top of everything, all OnePlus 10T units around the world will include a cutting-edge 160W SuperVOOC power adapter and a USB-C cable in their retail box, allowing you to easily and rapidly charge other devices like laptops, tablets, and mobile gaming consoles too.
But wait, there’s more
More information detailed at the eleventh hour, including all the technologies and safety measures implemented on the 10T 5G to avoid overheating and other issues that might arise from the use of such crazy advanced charging capabilities.
A dual charge pump, VFC trickle charging optimization algorithm, and a Customized Smart Charging Chip are designed to work together towards keeping you safe while the SuperVOOC Endurance system does its thing, whereas a combination of so-called Battery Healing Technology and a Battery Health Engine are responsible for ensuring long-term cell durability, promising that the phone’s ticker will retain “at least 80 percent of its original capacity” after the equivalent of four years of normal usage.
Those are just a few of the reasons why we expect the OnePlus 10T to cost less than the 10 Pro despite packing a faster SoC and (much) faster wired charging.
