OnePlus 9RT: availability, news, details and more

Tech Highlights:

  • OnePlus has confirmed that there won’t be a OnePlus 9T or a OnePlus 9T Pro this year. The announcement came as a surprise since the company has launched a T-series smartphone every year since the OnePlus 3T. Last year, the company decided not to launch a OnePlus 8T Pro and stuck with just the OnePlus 8T. However, this year, there won’t be either a T or a T Pro model. Instead, we are getting a new OnePlus 9RT, which is a combination of two series from the company.

  • While the OnePlus T-series will not be getting a smartphone this year, OnePlus is planning to release the OnePlus 9RT, which will be the successor to the OnePlus 9R that was announced earlier this year. Notably, only the OnePlus 9 Pro will be available in the United States, while the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus Nord 2 will be available in other regions. The OnePlus RT will be the first handset in the T and R series to feature the RT suffix, and it will be available only in India and China.

The OnePlus 9RT will be launching at a virtual event in Beijing at 4:30 a.m. PT/7:30 a.m. ET on October 13. The new smartphone will be joined by the OnePlus Buds Z2 wireless earbuds.

As seen on the teasers, you will be able to use an additional 7GB of UFS 3.1 storage as virtual RAM. It appeared on Geekbench with 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM, but we can also expect an 8GB RAM model.

The OnePlus 9RT is confirmed to feature a Samsung E4 AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 600Hz touch sampling rate. It could have a 6.55-inch screen. Like the OnePlus 9R, the RT device was rumored to have the Snapdragon 870 SoC under the hood. However, the latest leaks reveal that the smartphone will be powered by a Snapdragon 888 chipset.

The OnePlus 9RT will have a triple rear camera setup with a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 camera, which was also used on the OnePlus Nord 2. It might be accompanied by a 16MP ultrawide and a 5MP macro camera. On the front, you could get a 20MP selfie shooter. The primary camera on the OnePlus 9R was a 48MP sensor, so this is a good step up.

In terms of battery, the smartphone will pack a dual cell that equals a 4,500mAh battery capacity. It will have support for 65-watt fast charging. Notably, the OnePlus 9RT is the company’s first device to launch with Android 12 out of the box.

It means that the device will run OxygenOS 12, which is said to borrow features from Oppo’s ColorOS. You might find new features such as floating windows, privacy improvements, and a new theme store. According to OnePlus, the upcoming smartphone will likely get three years of OS updates and nearly four years of security updates.
