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.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

I replaced my Steam Deck’s noisy fan and am so happy I did

Photo by Sean Hollister / The Verge 160 hours into Elden Ring, I’m sure of one thing: the single most annoying thing about my Steam Deck is its whiny fan. And now, I’m so happy to report there’s a way to fix it. It takes roughly 15 minutes and $30 — depending on where you live — to install a replacement fan from iFixit. Five days ago, the repair company finally got a large shipment of those fans , and I bought one right away. Now, my Steam Deck’s tiny screech is gone. Is the fan still loud? Yes, yes it is, but it’s a whoosh instead of a whine. I like to think of it as the sound of air escaping the Deck’s vents, but mostly, I don’t think about it at all. I can easily tune out the new whoosh, whereas the whine always managed to get my attention even after Valve tweaked its software to bring the fan noise down. In fact, the new fan has less whine than the electrical tape trick I showed you in April , and — YMMV — seems to be oh-so-slightly quieter overall. I did an admittedly

You can make your new Pixel look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

A cool thing about Google’s Pixel 6 series phones is their unique camera bar design . If the finish of that strip were a different color than black — specifically blue, orange, purple, or red — it would totally look kind of like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles . And now that you can’t unsee the resemblance, device outfitter Dbrand would like to help make your Pixel 6 device look like one of your favorite childhood heroes. With Google’s latest phone the Pixel 6a releasing next week , Dbrand decided it's a good time to revisit the sewers and launch its Teenage Mutant Ninja Pixels decals for all three phones. They match the green heroes-in-a-half-shell plus their masks, and include four camera decal strips that reflect the colors of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael. Personally, I think the Pixel 6a’s two-camera array does the best job looking like proper eyes (the spidery camera array of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, not so much). Available now for the Pixel 6a: https://
