Leaked OnePlus 10T price could make this upcoming Android phone a tough sell

The OnePlus 10T is expected to land this year, and one of the big questions around it is whether it will be a lower-end or higher-end handset than the OnePlus 10 Pro – and a new price leak suggests OnePlus itself can’t really decide.

Leaker @passionategeekz spotted a listing for the phone on Amazon UK and shared it with RootMyGalaxy. The listing has since been removed, but not before the site got a screenshot of it, in which we can see a price of £799.

That converts to roughly $965 / AU$1,415, but more interestingly that UK price is exactly the same as the starting price of the OnePlus 10 Pro – a phone which, for reference, starts at $899 in the US (it's not available in Australia).

This appears to be the starting price of the OnePlus 10T too, as it’s for a model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which is the lowest configuration we’re expecting to see – and the same as the OnePlus 10 Pro’s base configuration. So if this listing is right, it seems that OnePlus might sell the two phones for exactly the same price.

This listing includes some other specs too, if you want an idea of what you’ll be getting for your money. As well as the RAM and storage, it lists a Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset, an FHD+ AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, a triple-lens camera with a 50MP primary sensor, and 5G.

The OnePlus 10T listed here is also said to come in a Moonstone Black shade, and to include a charger and a case in the box. We would, however, take all of this with a pinch of salt – early listings can be wrong, and since the listing has been removed, we also can’t verify that the screenshot wasn’t edited.


Analysis: pick your priorities

Assuming this price is accurate, and that the various spec leaks we’ve heard are too, OnePlus is seemingly planning to charge as much for the 10T as for the 10 Pro, despite the OnePlus 10T having a lower-resolution screen, a smaller battery, and an inferior camera setup.

On the other hand, the OnePlus 10T reportedly has a more powerful chipset and faster charging. So the choice might come down to which specs you value most.

It’s also possible that the OnePlus 10 Pro will get a price cut when the OnePlus 10T launches, which would position the new model as OnePlus’s top flagship, but then you’re in the position of paying more for specs that in some areas are inferior.

So identical pricing could make sense, but it could also make the OnePlus 10T a tough sell, since anyone interested in a new OnePlus flagship has had months to buy the OnePlus 10 Pro, and the 10T doesn’t sound like that much of an upgrade overall – it'll be interesting to see where it ranks on our list of the best OnePlus phones.

Uber Eats exits seven markets, transfers one as part of competitive retooling

Uber Eats is pulling out of a clutch of markets — shuttering its on-demand food offering in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Honduras, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Uruguay and Ukraine. It’s also transferring its Uber Eats business operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Careem, its wholly owned ride-hailing subsidiary that’s mostly focused on the Middle East. “Consumers and restaurants using the Uber Eats app in the UAE will be transitioned to the Careem platform in the coming weeks, after which the Uber Eats app will no longer be available,” it writes in a regulatory filing detailing the operational shifts. “These decisions were made as part of the Company’s ongoing strategy to be in first or second position in all Eats markets by leaning into investment in some countries while exiting others,” the filing adds. An Uber spokesman said the changes are not related to the coronavirus pandemic but rather related to an ongoing “strategy of record” for the company to hold a first or s

This popular open-source web server has some serious security flaws

OpenLiteSpeed Web Server, a globally popular open-source web server , was carrying a couple of high-severity vulnerabilities, experts have warned. Threat actors that managed to exploit these flaws would have been given full privilege remote code execution capabilities, noted researchers from Unit 42, Palo Alto Networks’ cybersecurity research arm.  The team found OpenLiteSpeed Web Server carried three high-severity vulnerabilities, namely CVE-2022-0073 (an 8.8 severity score, high-severity remote code execution flaw), CVE-2022-0074 (an 8.8 high-severity privilege escalation flaw), and CVE-2022-0072 (a 5.8, medium-severity directory traversal flaw). The vulnerabilities also affected the enterprise version, LiteSpeed Web Server. Patch ready Unit 42 has notified LiteSpeed Technologies of its findings which has, subsequently, patched the flaws, and released new versions of the server, urging users to update their software immediately.  Organizations using OpenLiteSpeed versions 1.5.1
