OnePlus has made the OnePlus 10T 5G official in Nigeria and the global markets. This phone revives the company’s “T” series and is its second flagship of 2022, joining the OnePlus 10 Pro. OnePlus 10T comes with the latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, 150W SuperVOOC fast charging, and loads more.
OnePlus isn’t just a phone brand, it’s a personality brand. The company carved out a niche for itself among Android enthusiasts and power users with its “never settle” motto and flexible yet slick software. Even as its growing popularity pushed it into the mainstream and prices kept rising, it remained different enough to keep its fans happy. However, all of that is now changing. OnePlus has been absorbed into sister company Oppo, their software efforts have been merged, and that differentiation is eroding.
The brand new OnePlus 10T 5G is a bit intriguing since the ‘T’ designation is usually used for mid-year refreshes, but there was no OnePlus 10. It’s newer than the OnePlus 10 Pro and has a few features that could be considered more modern, but it is launched as a successor. In terms of price and positioning in Nigeria, the 10T 5G starts at 270,000 Naira for the base variant with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. There’s an option with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for 290,000 Naira, and if you want to go up to 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, it will cost just a little more at 305,000 Naira.
- 8GB+128GB: 270,000 Naira
- 12GB+256GB: 290,000 Naira
- 16GB+512GB: 300,000 Naira
