- According to reports, the OnePlus 9RT will launch in October.
- This phone will be available in China as well as India and will feature some improvements over the OnePlus 9R.
- The device will ship with OxygenOS 12, an Android 12-based OxygenOS 12.
Although OnePlus won’t launch any new high-end smartphones in the US, it is expected that they will in other markets. Android Central just announced that the OnePlus 9RT will launch sometime in October, according to unnamed sources.
The new phone will use the OnePlus 9R as its base. The new phone will have the same 6.55 inch AMOLED 120Hz display as the OnePlus 9R and the same 4,500mAh lithium battery. The OnePlus 9RT will however have the “higher-binned” version of the OnePlus 9R’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor.
According to the report, the OnePlus 9RT will receive some camera upgrades. The main camera will be the 50MP Sony IMX766, instead of the 48MP Sony IMX586 found on the OnePlus 9R.
The best thing about the new phone is the fact that it will reportedly ship with OxygenOS 12 straight out of the box. The Android 12-based OS will look very similar to Oppo’s ColorOS skin. According to the report, OxygenOS 12 will include new features such as floating windows and a theme shop. Privacy additions such as Private Safe will allow users to protect files in a password-protected folder.
The price of the OnePlus 9RT is unknown, however, the OnePlus 9R sells in India for Rs 39,999 (about $538).
The OnePlus 9R is the OnePlus’ return to its roots as an affordable flagship that offers plenty of raw power, fast charging at 65W, and a 120Hz display.
