For years, one of the characteristic features of OnePlus smartphones was a characteristic slider located on the side of the phone. It allowed for smooth switching of the phone between loud and silent mode by making just one move. Apart from OnePlus, Apple, among others, used a similar solution. In the future, however, phones from OnePlus may be deprived of this add-on.
Everything indicates that the company's policy will change with the premiere of OnePlus 10T. Standard OnePlus smartphone models will be deprived of the slider, while this option will still be used in models with the Pro addition in the name. What's more, the sliders will probably be added to Oppo phones, which may indicate an increasingly tight connection between the OnePlus and Oppo phones, which results from the fact that both companies are connected with BBK Electronics.
