By now, you must be aware that the OnePlus 10T, the company’s first flagship device since the debut of OnePlus One in 2014, has gone on sale in India. It does not have the OnePlus brand alert slider. Since it takes up 30mm of space in the motherboard, OnePlus has tried to defend it by claiming that doing so gives them ample room for higher wattage charging, huge battery capacity, and an improved antenna signal. However, the company intends to reintroduce the recognizable notification bar on OnePlus smartphones in the future.
The latest high-end smartphone from the company, OnePlus 10T 5G, starts at INR 49,999. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, which is currently only found in a few Asus and iQoo smartphones. A maximum of 256 GB of storage and 16 GB of RAM is available. There are three cameras on the back of the phone: a 50MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, and a 2MP macro sensor. The 16MP front camera is used to take selfies. A 4800mAh battery powers the phone and can be recharged using the included 160W charger.
On OnePlus phones, the Alert Slider is a switch that enables the user to quickly switch between Quiet, Vibrate, and Ring modes without having to manually navigate the on-screen menus. The classic Alert Slider may return to future OnePlus phones, according to OnePlus officials who said the company wants to “overcome this technical hurdle” at a global OnePlus 10T media conference. Previously, a leaker claimed that the Alert Slider will only be available on OnePlus Pro models and that it will also be included in upcoming OPPO flagship devices. This is likely accurate despite the company’s silence, especially in light of the recent announcement that it will be returning on future OnePlus phones.
