OnePlus India announces OnePlus 9R, a gaming phone, ahead of March 23 launch date!

While many OnePlus users are expecting the new OnePlus 9 series tomorrow, OnePlus India announced a new phone in the series, the gaming-centric OnePlus 9R, which will be part of tomorrow’s launch livestream.

So far, OnePlus has not revealed anything what the OnePlus 9R could be, all they have shown is that it comes with 5G and is centered for gamers, most likely in response to ROG Phone 5, Red Magic 6 and Blackshark 4 that are now hitting the scene.

Although the company has not revealed anything, in the image, you can see in what appears to be bumps on the silhouette, which are probably the gaming triggers attached. This silhouette also shows the right side of the phone with the power button on it.

About the gaming triggers, it is to be revealed whether this will come free with the phone, or this is an additional accessory (more likely, the latter) and whether the gaming triggers support the vanilla OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro.

We will be waiting for the livestream, so stay tuned for livestream images. All livestream screencaps will be posted on our Facebook, so follow us there for updates.
