The OnePlus 9RT is expected to launch next week in China and may sooner or later debut in India as well. The new phone is the only T-series device we’re getting this year, as OnePlus put an end to all rumors of a 9T and 9T Pro last month.
However, with the 9RT coming just a few months after the OnePlus 9R, what exactly new specs is the brand putting on the table? Plus, what can users expect on the software side with the brand’s continued partnership with Oppo? We will try to answer these questions today.
Design and display: Thanks to a leaked poster, we know what the OnePlus 9RT looks like and it should feature a similar design to other OnePlus 9-series phones. Apart from a slight difference in the design of the camera module (thanks to the newer ones). possible goals) all we can see are some new colors and the phone might not be much different in the looks department after all. The phone is also expected to feature a 120Hz AMOLED panel, just like the 9R.
Characteristics: Perhaps the biggest change in the phone is under the hood, where the OnePlus 9RT is expected to feature a Snapdragon 888 chip, suggested by both Geekbench scores and the new poster. The Snapdragon 888, the same chipset powering the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro, is a more powerful offering than the Snapdragon 870 that powers the OnePlus 9R.

Slightly faster LPDDR5 RAM is also expected, along with UFS 3.1 storage, which is also present on the OnePlus 9R. The new phone is also expected to carry the same 4,500mAh battery with Warp Charger 65T.
Camera: The OnePlus 9RT is expected to include a new 50 MP main camera sensor, which is likely the same sensor used on the OnePlus Nord 2 launched earlier this year. The new sensor could offer slightly improved performance compared to the old 48 MP main sensor from the OnePlus 9R. However, not much is yet known about the other goals of the setup.
Software: The OnePlus 9 series was the last OnePlus device before the brand decided to integrate its software facade with that of Oppo. The result was seen in the very next phone, as the OnePlus Nord 2 came with a lot of ColorOS elements that OxygenOS users could spot almost instantly. This included the camera interface and some of the Settings app pages.
With the OnePlus 9RT, things shouldn’t be much different. In China, the phone is expected to debut with ColorOS by default, where as if the phone arrives in other markets like India, it might feature OxygenOS-ColorOS hybrid software similar to the OnePlus Nord 2. That wouldn’t do. a lot of difference. because all OnePlus phones will upgrade to the brand’s unified operating system next year.
The OnePlus 9RT is expected to launch on October 13 in China and is expected to arrive in India shortly thereafter. We should have more India specific details closer to the actual launch.
