OnePlus launched the 9RT on the 13th of October only in China. Its predecessor, the OnePlus 9R also launched only in India and China. Several reports stated that OnePlus will launch the 9RT in India around Diwali season. But that was not the case. India is a huge market for OnePlus. Hence, they always tend to launch exclusive products to cater to the Indian audience. Indian consumers have been waiting for a while for the launch of the OnePlus 9RT in India. Looks like their wait is going to end soon.
Latest Report On OnePlus 9RT
Reliable leaker, Mukul Sharma, reported that the OnePlus 9RT has been listed as OnePlus RT on the Google Supported Devices list and Google Play Console listing. This could be true as he also reports that the same model number OP5154L1 had been listed on BIS Certification. While I do believe that OnePlus can do such a thing so that the Indian audience does not feel that they are getting a device launched a month ago. But, we’ll see how it pans out. Maybe they do launch it as the OnePlus RT and also launch different colorways for some exclusivity.
What’s So Exciting About OnePlus 9RT?
Well, the excitement of the Indian consumers is justified. I would also be up for it if it were to launch in my country. The device runs on a Snapdragon 888 5G chipset paired with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB of fast UFS 3.1 storage. It features a 6.62″ E4 OLED display with minimal bezels and a 120Hz refresh rate. The device also packs a 4500 mAh battery which charges quickly with 65W charging. In terms of build and design, OnePlus checked all the boxes. It is a glass and metal sandwich and retains the beloved Alert Slider. In the camera housing at the rear, there lies a 50MP Sony IMX766 main lens that supports OIS and EIS. Apart from that, it also has a 16MP wide-angle and a 2MP macro lens with a 16MP selfie shooter. Overall, it has all the ingredients of a great flagship phone.
Launch Date And Pricing
According to tipster, Yogesh Brar, the OnePlus 9RT will launch at around 40000 INR to 44000 INR. There are no reports as yet about the exact launch date but it could launch around the first 15 days of December. Otherwise, considering the competition in India at this price, this device won’t make sense if they delay it.
