The OnePlus 10T smartphone revealed Wednesday signals the company's plans to continue the "T" brand it's pursued on and off since 2016 -- featuring a midcycle phone with smaller upgrades. The performance-focused OnePlus 10T joins OnePlus 10 Pro in making up the Chinese phone makers' flagship lineup. It'll go on sale in the US on Sept. 29 starting at $649 for the base model (8GB, 128GB) then notch up to $749 for the more powerful model (16GB, 256GB). UK pricing will be £629 and £729 for these models respectively, and the base price converts roughly to AU$1,105. As a performance-focused phone, the OnePlus 10T features a state-of-the-art processor, a heck of a lot of RAM, a large battery, fast charging and the largest cooling system ever in a OnePlus phone, according to the company. (For specifics, you can scroll down to CNET's specs chart.) That said, the 10T makes some compromises in pursuit of performance.

Bottom line: Repurposing obsolete hardware is a popular pastime among the tech community, and the latest project from the YouTube channel Artillect is a fine example of what's possible when thinking outside of the box. Is it practical? No, not really. Is it neat? Absolutely. Riley took a Brother AX-25 electronic typewriter from the late 1980s that utilizes a daisy wheel to print text and spruced it up with some modern hardware. The AX-25 features a 16-character LCD capable of editing documents stored on its 8kb of memory but of course, we can do better today. It's still a work in progress but at this stage, the typewriter is connected to a breadboard circuit with two multiplexers that are controlled by an Arduino Uno. The Arduino is connected to a Raspberry Pi over serial with a voltage divider in the middle to convert the Arduino's 5v output to 3.3v, thus preventing the Raspberry Pi from getting damaged. It is also connected to a laptop via USB. The link allows Riley to use … [Read more...] about Modern hardware transforms this 80s typewriter into a Linux terminal and ASCII art printer
Refresh 2022-08-03T07:32:34.672Z It's OnePlus 10T launch live blog time at TechRadar, and we're getting the engine running for another launch event - there are still hours to go before OnePlus' live stream starts though, so there's no need to warm up your popcorn just yet. 2022-08-03T08:10:23.513Z Something that's interesting is that OnePlus had two launches today. One was obviously the OnePlus 10T launch - that's what you're here for, presumably - but the other was a Chinese-only one for the OnePlus Ace Pro. However this second launch event has been cancelled at the last minute, and it's not quite clear why. What's doubly odd is that this cancellation happened the day after Motorola called off a similar China-only event. So what's going on? We don't know - but the OnePlus 10T launch is still going on. 2022-08-03T08:42:28.147Z OnePlus hasn't really been shy with information about the phone. Here's one big example - it's the phone in green and … [Read more...] about OnePlus 10T launch live blog: catch up with the big Android phone launch
