OnePlus 10T sacrifices the alert slider to support 150W fast charging

The OnePlus 10T is just over a week from launching in New York on August 3 and new reports have surfaced about the fate of the beloved alert slider.  The company confirmed that the next flagship will not get the alert slider. OnePlus has also clarified why this was done.

The Chinese smartphone manufacturer confirmed (opens in new tab) to The Verge that the OnePlus 10T is saying goodbye to the alert slider. This was done to make space for other internal hardware components within the premium smartphone. Hope Liu, senior Industrial Director and Chief Designer for Oppo and OnePlus confirmed in the report that the smartphone will come with a few enhancements in the battery and network features. He added that the alert slider took up significant space in the smartphone’s motherboard even though the slider itself was small.

While the company is yet to reveal the device specifications, there are rumours that we may see a 4,800 mAh battery pack with 150W fast charging support. The second new component that enables such high-speed charging is the reason that the smartphone required this sacrifice.
