The OnePlus 9RT is said to have a 50-megapixel main camera, a 120Hz display, and 65W fast charging. The next OnePlus phone is also said to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC. It is expected to launch in India and China later this month. This is in contrast to previous rumors, which stated the OnePlus 9RT will be powered by a Snapdragon 870 processor. The new smartphone was also listed on Geekbench as having Snapdragon 888 rather than Snapdragon 870. Separately, the OnePlus is said to be focusing on a OnePlus 9RT Joint Edition. The Joint Edition will use the Snapdragon 870 SoC.
Specifications for the OnePlus 9RT (expected)
Some specifications supposedly linked with the OnePlus 9RT have been released by a Weibo source. The phone is reported to run Android 11 on top of ColorOS 12. It will come with a Full-HD+ display with a hole-punch design and a 120Hz refresh rate. The OnePlus 9RT is said to be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC. In contrast to prior rumors, the next OnePlus phone is said to include a Snapdragon 870 processor.
The OnePlus 9RT is reported to sport a 50-megapixel main Sony IMX766 camera sensor at the rear in terms of optics. The OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro both use the same sensor. An 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens and a 2-megapixel macro lens are rumored to be included in the next OnePlus model.
The OnePlus 9RT has a 4,500mAh battery with 65W fast charging capability, according to the source. The battery and charging capabilities are said to be identical to those of the OnePlus 9R.
A Geekbench listing has revealed data regarding the OnePlus MT2110, which is thought to be the OnePlus 9RT, in addition to the rumored specs. According to the description, the phone runs Android 11 and has 12GB of RAM. It also implies that the OnePlus phone will be equipped with a motherboard codenamed “Lahaina,” which is a codename for the Snapdragon 888 processor. The Snapdragon 870, on the other hand, is said to be codenamed “kona” according to several internet sources.
It’s safe to assume that this is the 2021 flagship chipset. The figures for single-core and multiple-core performance are likewise closer to the Snapdragon 888, making the OnePlus 9 RT a minor upgrade over the OnePlus 9R.
A Joint Edition also on the works
It is likely that due to a chip scarcity in the industry, the firm decided to postpone the launch of the 9T/9T Pro flagship until 2021.
OnePlus, on the other hand, looks to be working on a new model featuring the Snapdragon 870 SoC. According to a MyDrivers source in China, the company is working on the OnePlus 9RT Joint Edition with the Snapdragon 870, which might be released solely in China on November 11 during the shopping festival Singles’ Day.
On October 15, the standard OnePlus 9RT is expected to be released. However, the phone purportedly emerged on certification sites in both China and India ahead of an official announcement.
