OnePlus has confirmed the official launch date of the OnePlus 9RT via Weibo. It will arrive in China on October 13. The launch event will take place at 7:30 PM CST (5:00 PM IST). At the event, the Chinese company will also unveil its new OnePlus Buds Z2 true wireless stereo (TWS) earbuds, as per a teaser posted on Weibo.
The OnePlus 9RT is also widely rumoured to launch in India. Though, the company is yet to give a confirmation on the same. There is a possibility that the brand will bring the new OnePlus phone to the Indian market after China’s launch.
OnePlus 9RT will launch next week
Just yesterday, the company’s cofounder Pete Lau hinted at the same through a post on Weibo. The executive’s post talks about the history of the OnePlus T series that started with the launch of the OnePlus 3T back in 2016. OnePlus unveiled the OnePlus 8T last year and it is now all set to launch another OnePlus T series phone.
The new phone is expected to make its debut in China and India as well. It will reportedly be a successor to the existing OnePlus 9R smartphone. As far as specifications are concerned, the leaks suggest that the OnePlus 9RT will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 chipset.
However, some of the reports also claim that the new handset will pack a “higher-binned version of the Snapdragon 870.” It is said to pack a 50MP Sony IMX766 primary camera at the back. It could arrive with a standard 6.55-inch AMOLED display with support for 120Hz refresh rate. It could be available with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
The device could ship with ColorOS 12, which could be based on Android 11. The upcoming OnePlus 9RT smartphone could be offered in three colour options, including blue, silver, and black.
