OnePlus 10T 5G has been launched in the global market including India. Although the smartphone brings several top notch features such as Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, 150W fast charging support, up to 16GB RAM option and more, it lacks a big feature. The OnePlus 10T does not come with the iconic alert slider, which sets OnePlus apart from other Android phone makers. In a pre-launch media briefing, Xiaolu Hou, Head of Product Strategy and Portfolio at OnePlus Global, said the company is working hard to bring back the alert slider on future OnePlus phones.

The company’s executive in a video call from China said the large 360-degree antenna system, 4,800mAh battery capacity as well as fast-charging support caused constraints of space and as a result the company had to abandon the alert slider. He assured that this does not mean that future OnePlus phones will not be equipped with the alert slider.

Xiaolu Hou said the team is working extremely hard to resolve the technical issues with the alert slider jump. “The OnePlus team is working hard to resolve these technical issues and ensure that this kind of sacrifice does not occur in future products,” he said. Now, it’s safe to assume that future OnePlus phones like the OnePlus 11 and beyond will have the alert slider intact.

While the OnePlus 10T lacks one feature, it brings a lot more to consumers. It’s the brand’s first OnePlus phone to be powered by a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor paired with up to 16GB of RAM. The 10T is also the first phone from the brand to offer 150W fast charging support, which the company says completely changes the phone in just 19 minutes.

During the OnePlus 10T launch event, the company also announced OxygenOS 13. The 10T currently runs on Android 12 software with OxygenOS 12.1 on top. Although the company has not officially confirmed the release time of its latest software version, it did reveal that the OnePlus 10 Pro 5G will be the first phone to receive OxygenOS 13 software. The latest OnePlus 10T will taste like OxygenOS 13 by the end of the year. The exact schedule remains to be confirmed.
