OnePlus Nord N10 and N100 specs leak head of Monday debut

OnePlus Nord N10 and N100 specs leak head of Monday debut

When OnePlus announced the OnePlus 8T last week, it was mostly mum on the expected new Nord phones, the phones that should be coming to the US since the first Nord didn't. October isn't over yet though, and there is a chance OnePlus will do so next week. That leaves plenty of time for some more leaks, and this latest specs dump lays out all that we can expect from the OnePlus Nord N10 and the OnePlus Nord N100.

OnePlus 8T OxygenOS 11 adds the Amazon app nobody asked for

OnePlus 8T OxygenOS 11 adds the Amazon app nobody asked for

OnePlus may have thankfully promised to stop preloading Facebook on its phones but it seems to have switched one Big Tech for another Big Tech. The OnePlus 8T, the company's latest flagship announced just last week, is getting a minor update to OxygenOS 11 but instead of what should have been a trivial event in India has blown up over the Internet. It turns out, the update also adds the Amazon app to the phone but OnePlus apparently has a ready answer for that.

OnePlus 8T teardown reveals charging and cooling features

OnePlus 8T teardown reveals charging and cooling features

OnePlus just announced what may be its last smartphone of the year and, depending on who you ask, it could be OnePlus' best yet or just a rehash of the OnePlus 8 Pro with some new things add inside. Those new things, however, are pretty much one of the selling points of the OnePlus 8T Pro, particularly its fast charging capabilities. What else has changed inside will only be possible to know through a teardown and, fortunately, JerryRigEverything is only too happy to bare it all.

iPhone 12 or OnePlus 8T – Where should the money go

iPhone 12 or OnePlus 8T – Where should the money go

Just a day after the launch of iPhone 12 lineup on October 13, OnePlus revealed the sole OnePlus 8T which will complete the Chinese tech company’s lineup for this year, since there is no Pro model for the 8T. Both the phones are going to be available from October 23 and will compete to lure in prospective buyers. The pricing for the two smartphones is neck to neck, while iPhone 12 demands $799 for the base model, OnePlus 8T comes for a slightly lower $749 tag – virtually there is just $50 setting these two devices apart. So, a comparison of the specification and features of these close competitors – the iPhone 12 and OnePlus 8T was imminent.

OnePlus 8T durability and display benchmark results are unsurprising

OnePlus 8T durability and display benchmark results are unsurprising

OnePlus, sans co-founder Carl Pei, has just announced its second and last high-end flagship of the year. The OnePlus 8T changes the company's formula in more ways than one, launching without a "Pro" sibling but incorporating Pro features at the same time. It will definitely pique consumers' interests, especially on whether now is the right time to grab one. These early tests do seem encouraging but JerryRigEverything's Zack Nelson seems to be on the fence but not for reasons you might think.

OnePlus 8T Review : Around the curve and back on track

OnePlus 8T Review : Around the curve and back on track

This is the official OnePlus 8T review as conducted by SlashGear. The OnePlus 8T may not agree with you if you've become accustomed to living the "Pro" smartphone life. Over the past few years, smartphones with "premium" features have clobbered our pocketbooks and looked to capitalize on the latest trends in "new for the sake of newness" in ways I've not been particularly pumped about. With the OnePlus 8T, it feels to me that OnePlus has returned from a brief stint of wild indulgence in over-the-top flashy features - back, here, to a place where the company's delivered a smartphone that's solid for all the right reasons.

OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei reportedly left the company for a new venture

It is by no means a Samsung, a Huawei, or even an LG but, at least among those knowledgeable about the Android market, OnePlus has become a force to reckon with. It has managed to rank against top phone makers despite its comparatively more meager resources. That has partly been thanks to the vision and leadership of the company's co-founders, one of whom has now reportedly departed from his offspring to pursue still an unrevealed new venture.
