The OnePlus 9RT has finally been announced after numerous leaks, packaging high-quality components in a surprisingly affordable form factor – at least in the limited areas where it will be available.
At the moment, OnePlus 9RT is only moving towards its home territory of Chinabut you can expect it to appear in India at some point.
Despite the name, this is not a subtle reworking of the OnePlus 9R. In fact, it could be thought of as the OnePlus 9T that we never got.
With a Snapdragon 888 processor, 8 or 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and a 59% increased heatsink, it certainly mixes it up with the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro in terms of performance. Its 6.62-inch 120Hz FHD + OLED display beats the OnePlus 9 in size and matches it in every other way.
On the front of the camera, you also get the same 50MP Sony IMX766 widescreen sensor as the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus Nord 2, but unlike those phones, it is supported by Optical Image Stabilization (OIS).
There’s also a 16MP ultra-wide sensor and a 2MP macro sensor, both of which seem to represent budget concessions. Yes, and you also get a standard 16MP selfie camera.
Elsewhere, you get a 4500mAh dual cell battery and 65W fast charging, which again hits parity with the best in the OnePlus lineup. There’s also a robust 128GB or 256GB of storage, a pair of stereo speakers and an in-display fingerprint reader, and 5G support.
Prices start at RMB 3300, which is directly £ 374 / $ 513. Not that we can see this phone in the West.
