2021 is a very noteworthy year OnePlus Lovers, and not a good way. A few months ago, the company announced that it would merge with Oppo to consolidate the two workforces and different sectors. However, this may not be very positive for those who have enjoyed OnePlus as they have in the last few years. For example, the company plans to change OxygenOS to new software based on both OxygenOS and ColorOS on Oppo devices. The second hit was the lack of OnePlus 9T or OnePlus 9T Pro.Instead, the company is new refresh For RT called OnePlus 9RT.
We’re used to seeing the new T-series flagships from OnePlus every year. But last year, the company changed this and removed Pro, releasing only OnePlus 8T. I don’t even have a OnePlus 9T this year. Instead, we’re launching the OnePlus 9T, a new variant of the third device in the lineup. It was launched as a “cost-effective” flagship. The biggest problem was the small availability limited to India and China. I’m not sure if this will be addressed in RT, but when it comes to upgrades, it does much more than expected.
OnePlus 9RT comes with an upgraded display
The OnePlus 9R arrives as an improved OnePlus 8T with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 instead of the 865. Nevertheless, the device had the same screen, the same camera, and the same battery. The OnePlus 9RT brings more changes, some of which are really important.
The OnePlus 9RT brings a larger 6.62-inch display, leaving behind its predecessor, the 6.55-inch panel. The panel is a Samsung E4 AMOLED panel with a resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 20: 9. In addition, it supports HDR 10+ and has sRGB and P3 color modes. Finally, the screen has a refresh rate of 120Hz and a touch sampling rate of 600Hz, which reacts instantly. The device also comes with 4D haptic feedback to enhance the game and the three Wi-Fi antennas.
Significant performance upgrade
Internally, the phone brings a great upgrade with the Snapdragon 888 SoC. Its predecessor came with a 7nm-based Snapdragon 870. It’s still a super-powerful flagship processor, but it lags behind the 5nm-based SD888. The device comes with 8GB or 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB or 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
The new phone has the same processor as the Vanilla OnePlus 9, but with a “space coloring” system with a 59% larger heatsink. This will increase heat dissipation by 20%. Therefore, this variant is probably more powerful than vanilla and has less throttle.
New camera system
In the camera sector, the OnePlus 9RT makes some big changes. The device has a 50MP main camera that uses the same Sony IMX766 sensor as the 9 and 9 Pro. It’s a 1 / 1.56 inch sensor with the latest features such as DOL-HDR and a bright f / 1.8 aperture for 4: 1 binning. There is also an optical image stabilizer, but there is no 8K video recording.
The secondary camera is a 16MP snapper with an f / 2.2 lens. There is also a 2MP macro camera. The front section has a 16MP IMX571 sensor with f / 2.4 aperture and 1080p video recording.
On the front of the battery is the same 4,500mAh 2-cell battery that supports 65W fast charging. This device has a USB-C port with USB 2.0 data transfer only. The device has an in-display fingerprint scanner and a stereo speaker with Dolby Atmos. It also comes with 5G, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2 with LDAC and AAC codecs, and NFC.
OnePlus 9RT – Price and Availability
The OnePlus 9RT will be pre-ordered in China later today and will begin selling and shipping on Tuesday, 19th. Prices start at RMB 3,300. That’s about $ 510 / € 445 / £ 38,500.
