OnePlus said they won’t be launching any “T” versions of their flagships, of course, this doesn’t include the “R” series.
OnePlus said they won’t be launching a “T” version of their flagship this year, however this doesn’t mean they actually won’t do it for their other flagship series, the “R” series. The OnePlus 9RT is the proof of that. It has launched in mainland China as an updated version of the OnePlus 9R.
First and foremost, it runs ColorOS instead of HydrogenOS, the Chinese counterpart of OxygenOS. If this launches internationally, it will of course keep OxygenOS as its main OS, which is one of the few things that keeps OnePlus diverse from any of its BBK siblings and is one of the few reasons why they are still worth getting into anymore.
During the livestream, the company has pretty much listed all of its highlighted specs. These include a large 6.62in. Samsung E4 OLED with 120Hz refresh rate, sRGB support and P3 colour gamut. This screen is protected by an unspecified version of Corning Gorilla Glass.
For the performance, the OnePlus 9RT uses the Snapdragon 888 processor. In comparison, the OnePlus 9R uses the Snapdragon 870 for its processor, which means the RT is more powerful and should have a near identical performance to the OnePlus 9 series. Like the OnePlus 9 series, it uses the 50mp Sony IMX766 with OIS as its main camera coupled with two more cameras, which are the 16mp ultrawide camera with a 123° field of view and a 2mp macro camera, which the company has used in place of the 2mp monochrome. For selfies, you have a 16mp Sony IMX471 with EIS. The phone’s 50mp camera can record in 4K@60fps.
For endurance, the phone packs a typical 4500mAh battery coupled with Warp Charge 65T, which charges slightly faster than the previous Warp Charge 65. As stated, this is a proprietary 65W fast charging tech from OnePlus. The phone supports NFC, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2 and Dolby Atmos. The phone has stereo speakers and with Dolby Atmos audio enhancement, makes sound crispier and enable for the surround sound experience. The phone has no headphone jack so keep note of that. For biometrics, the phone uses an optical in-display fingerprint sensor.
