Yesterday, thanks to a bunch of leaked renders and rumors, it was suggested that the OnePlus 9RT could be announced on the 13th of October. It turns out the rumors were true because OnePlus has since confirmed on Weibo that the handset will indeed be launching next week.
What’s interesting about the OnePlus 9RT is that the company had previously stated that they will be skipping the “T” handset this year. For those unfamiliar, OnePlus usually launches two flagship phones a year, with the second model sporting a “T” in its name. This year would have been the OnePlus 9T but since those plans are scrapped, we’re getting the OnePlus 9RT instead.
Based on the name, we can only assume that the OnePlus 9RT will be the successor to the OnePlus 9R that was launched earlier this year. The OnePlus 9R is a lower-specced version of the OnePlus 9, so for those who don’t want to break the bank, the OnePlus 9RT should also be priced similarly.
Based on the rumors and leaked specs we’ve heard so far, the OnePlus 9RT is said to come with a 6.55-inch 120Hz display, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset powering it with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. We’re also looking at a triple camera setup on the back consisting of a 50MP main camera, a 16MP secondary, and a 2MP camera, along with a 16MP front-facing selfie cam and a 4,500mAh battery.
The specs are actually pretty decent so while it isn’t a flagship, it is a much more powerful alternative to the OnePlus Nord series.
