Chinese smartphone maker, OnePlus, could bring the OnePlus 9RT with a different nomenclature to India. The OnePlus 9RT had been already launched in China and could land here soon with a few tweaks. According to the tipster, the OnePlus 9RT could be launched as a OnePlus RT in India. The company has just launched a new special edition Nord 2 for gamers and young buyers. The OnePlus Nord 2 Pac-Man edition smartphone brings some quirky features in the mid-premium segment.
According to tipster Max Jambor, the OnePlus RT will be launching on December 16 in India, which comes in just 20 days from now.
This is not the first report to state that the OnePlus 9RT is getting a name change ahead of its launch in India. Earlier this month, listings of the phone were spotted on the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) website with OnePlus RT branding. The existing OnePlus 9 series in India includes the OnePlus 9, the OnePlus 9 Pro, and the affordable flagship OnePlus 9R.
The OnePlus 9RT was launched in China in October with features such as a 4,500mAh battery and a 65W fast charger. The smartphone comes with a 6.62-inch punch-hole AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. OnePlus 9RT ships with Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5nm chipset coupled with 12GB RAM and 256GB of internal storage.
In-camera, the 9RT sports a triple rear camera setup. The main lens is a 50MP shooter along with 16MP ultra-wide lens and a 2MP macro sensor. The smartphone gets a 16MP selfie camera.
The name change is not new in the industry. A few days ago, another Chinese smartphone maker, Xiaomi announced to launch Redmi Note 11 5G (launched in China) as Redmi 11T 5G for the Indian market.
