Update: October 11, 2021 – OnePlus has confirmed most of the specifications of the 9RT and also posted the official image of the phone ahead of the announcement on Wednesday. It will come with a Samsung E4 AMOLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate and 600Hz touch sampling rate. The phone will be powered by Snapdragon 888 with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 7GB of virtual memory. There will be 19067.44 mm² space cooling system.
It will come in Silver and Black colours, with the Black version featuring a matte finish. It will pack a 4500mAh battery with support for 65W Warp Charge 65T fast charging.
Earlier: After rumours, OnePlus has officially confirmed the launch of OnePlus 9RT, the company’s next mid-range smartphone and the successor to the OnePlus 9R in China on October 13th. The teaser shows the triple rear cameras for the phone that includes a 50MP main camera. The invite says ‘speed has a new name’
@evleaks has also posted press renders of the phone that shows the back side of the phone which should feature a glass finish, and it also shows the phone’s metal frame. The box in the image looks smaller than the one that comes with the OnePlus 9 and 9R, but it should come with a charger in the box.

The smartphone is said to feature a similar FHD+ 120Hz Fluid AMOLED display, and 4500mAh battery with 65W charging as the 9R. Even though earlier rumours said that it feature an upgraded version of the Snapdragon 870, recent rumours point to Snapdragon 888 SoC for the phone with up to 12GB of RAM.
Compared to 48MP rear camera with Sony IMX586 sensor in the 9R, the 9RT is said to use the 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor that was recently used in the OnePlus Nord 2. It is not clear if this will run Android 12 with OxygenOS 12 out of the box, since the company just launched the beta version of the OS for the OnePlus 9 series.
@evleaks also posted the box contents of the OnePlus Buds Z2, the company’s new mid-range ANC earbuds that will launch alongside. We have already seen the renders and the complete specifications of the earbuds.
We can expect both these to launch in India as well soon after the China launch, and the launch invite should be out soon.
