With the official announcement of the OnePlus 10T, OnePlus has upped the ante with the competition and decided to further bump up the price of the OnePlus 10 Pro. Starting this Wednesday, August 3, those interested in buying this flagship will pay $799 instead of $899.

The OnePlus 10 Pro hit the market on March 31, and is OnePlus' first flagship in 2022. In its favor, the device features a quality 120Hz LTPO 2.0 AMOLED display, is packed by Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, and has excellent battery life and 80-watt fast charging.

In addition, the device should receive up to three Android updates and free years of security patches, being the first model from OnePlus to be updated to OxygenOS 13. Against the 10 Pro is the absence of IP rating, 3.5 mm jack, and microSD slot.

With the price drop, the OnePlus 10 Pro now costs $799 in the variant with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The model with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, on the other hand, can be found at $869. Important: this promotion is only valid for the US market.

With this price drop, however, the OnePlus 10 Pro comes very close to the new OnePlus 10T, announced on Wednesday, whose MRSP is $649. The big difference between the models is in performance and fast charging technology. While the 10T comes to market with an upgraded SoC, the 10 Pro offers superior camera quality as well as a more competitive display.

Below, you check out the difference between the specifications between one model and the other:

With over 10 years of reviewing smartphones and wearables, I recently became addicted to smart home gadgets. Even though I dove into the Apple ecosystem two years back, Android remains as one of my passions. Previously editor-in-chief of AndroidPIT and Canaltech in Brazil, I now write for the US market. I love my records and I believe that the best way to get to know a place is through its food.

    The 9 pro costs more. Could it be the better phone in One Plus mind?

      Good question. But it’s probably a sales strategy: keep it higher to sell more 10 Pro units.
