OnePlus is not new to any of the aforementioned options. A few months ago it began selling an unlocked version of its Nord N20 5G after being exclusive to T-Mobile for a while. Those who bought this unlocked version also got 20 percent off the Nord Buds. The same month, it listed a 12GB RAM version of the OnePlus 10 Pro and included a free pair of the OnePlus Buds Pro with all orders.
With the OnePlus 10T, OnePlus is now offering those who pre-order the new smartphone a deal on the 256GB version which has 16GB of RAM. This configuration is actually priced at $749 but OnePlus is selling it for $649 on its online store, which is the same price as the 8+128GB configuration. That's $100 off, which is a pretty sweet discount and should convince anyone sitting on the fence about purchasing the phone. The early access program will run each week until the phone is available for open sale. The dates are August 3rd - 6th, 10th - 13th, 17th - 20th, and 24th - 27th.
The early access deal is also available in Canada where the phone sells for CA$849 instead of CA$999. However, that's not the case in the UK and Europe. Rather than a lower price, buyers will get to choose from three different free gifts including the £99/€99 OnePlus Buds Z2, a £25/€25 bumper case, or a £30/€30 tempered glass screen protector. Not only are none of these deals available in India, but the 16GB RAM version isn't available in the country yet either. Instead, there is a 12GB RAM version with 256GB of storage that's not sold elsewhere.
At $649, the 16GB OnePlus 10T undercuts the Galaxy S22 which starts at $799 for the base model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Not only has it got more RAM and storage than Samsung's flagship, but it also has a more powerful processor and charges significantly faster. On top of that, the OnePlus 10T does come with a charger in the box, an accessory that's missing with Samsung's smartphones.
