The much-awaited OnePlus 9RT is tipped to be the next smartphone to be launched by OnePlus. This smartphone is surfacing in rumour mills for the past couple of months and almost all details regarding the device have already been revealed. Now, the company’s co-founder Pete Lau has teased the launch of the OnePlus 9RT. Lau, the co-founder and Cheif Product Officer of OnePlus, took to his Weibo account to tease the arrival of the next smartphone.
On Thursday, Pete Lau posted on Weibo a brief history about the OnePlus T series that started with the launch of the OnePlus 3T back in 2016 and has the OnePlus 8T as its latest model. He suggested that, unlike past models, the company will bring a phone in its T series with a new name, which is quite likely to be a hint at the OnePlus 9RT.
The executive concludes the teaser by indicating more details to come on Friday. But in the meantime, Weibo poured cold water on the company’s plans by clearly showing that the post was published using the OnePlus 9RT. This confirms the name of the phone that has so far been a part of the rumour mill.
For nearly two months now, the OnePlus 9 RT has been in reports as the company’s next phone. It is speculated to come to India and China this month. Some certification sites also hinted at the development of the OnePlus 9RT for Indian and Chinese markets.
As per the existing reports, the OnePlus 9 RT is speculated to make use of an octa-core Snapdragon 888 processor, which will make it more powerful than the OnePlus 9R that is equipped with a Snapdragon 870 processor. The other aspects that have been tipped include a 50MP primary Sony IMX766 sensor, Android 11 topped with ColorOS 12, a 6.55-inch AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, up to 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of additional storage space. The OnePlus 9RT is speculated to be launched in three colour options – Black, Silver, and Blue.
