We know the OnePlus 9RT will be available for purchase in just a few days, but can you get your hands on one from the UK?
The OnePlus 9RT is currently available for pre-order and will ship on October 19, but only if you’re in China.
The OnePlus 9RT seems like a promising smartphone, but it doesn’t look like you’ll be able to get an international version anytime soon as OnePlus itself hasn’t said a word about a larger release yet.
With that said, the OnePlus 9RT could catch the attention of India if it plans to be distributed in the same locations as the OnePlus 9R.
The OnePlus 9R came out earlier this year in April, and while it was initially sold in China, it was later sold in India, but never made it overseas to the UK, US or Australia.
OnePlus hasn’t really ruled out shipments to other countries, but that’s not mentioned either, which paints an unlikely picture that the 9RT will ever make it to the UK.
It’s unclear why the latest smartphone is currently limited to China only, but it’s not uncommon for OnePlus to sell its devices in certain countries without full expansion.
Looking at other countries, it is even less likely that the smartphone will appear in Australia, as OnePlus does not actually sell phones there.
However, if you are desperate for a OnePlus device but live in the UK, you can still find models like the OnePlus Nord CE 5G or OnePlus 9 Pro on sale.
We contacted OnePlus for comment, but the company hasn’t responded to us yet. We’ll be sure to update this article if there are any comments about the OnePlus 9RT going overseas.
