With its “T” series, OnePlus added a whole new dimension to its flagship killing game at the time. The T variant offered its users a special treat—a smartphone that had all the goodness of a OnePlus flagship, and also some new hardware, features, and design elements, all of which made it sweeter than the regular OnePlus flagship. which was released at the beginning of the year. This year OnePlus introduced a new OnePlus along with the usual OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro.
This new member of the OnePlus 9 clan was the mighty OnePlus 9R, which was famous for its gaming prowess. And it is the OnePlus 9R (already known to be a gaming boss) that has been given the T treatment. The OnePlus 9RT has been released in China and with no official word on when (or exactly) the phone will arrive in India, we really think this is a OnePlus flagship that will literally take the market by storm. Here are eight reasons why we think the OnePlus 9RT is the flagship phone India needs:
A flagship processor? Check!
To be called a true flagship, a smartphone needs to come with a powerful processor and the OnePlus 9RT comes with a big green tick in that department. The phone is powered by one of the most powerful processors in the business, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, the same processor that powers other flagship smartphones like the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro. To take this power even further, the phone comes with UFS 3.1 storage to give you high-speed performance at all times. Whatever you throw at the OnePlus 9RT, the phone will not only take it, but will fly away with it.
Cameras that can compete with the pros
OnePlus 9RT’s cameras are as flagship as its processor. The smartphone comes with a camera unit that can not only beat other smartphones in the same league but also give tough competition to the professionals in the business. The camera unit on the OnePlus 9RT is led by the highly acclaimed Sony IMX766 50-megapixel sensor, the same sensor seen on the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro. Along with its sheer size which makes it a master of low light photography, the sensor also comes with OIS which ensures that you come out with stable shots even in rocky, unstable terrain. The main sensor is backed by a 16MP ultrawide sensor to deliver beautiful landscape images and a 2MP macro camera to meet all your close-up needs. Stunning selfies are delivered by the 16MP selfie shooter.
AI Magic takes video to another level
OnePlus has also added some serious software magic to its cameras. OnePlus’ sensor-exclusive DOL-HDR algorithm makes shooting video a treat, even in uneven, or poor lighting conditions. The algorithm provides “dual-exposure control” that captures both short- and long-exposed visual data simultaneously. This means that the camera records multiple videos at once, which are then processed by AI to give the best possible result.
A phone that will never lose its cool
Power hungry tasks can affect the temperature of the smartphone and even the coolest phones can lose their cool (quite literally) but that will never happen with the OnePlus 9RT. The smartphone comes with a cooling system like no other. It has a five-layer cooling material that facilitates three-dimensional cooling. The VC cooling area is 59 percent more and the cooling is 20 percent more efficient as compared to the OnePlus 9. So even if you keep throwing task after task along the way, the OnePlus 9RT won’t lose its temper.
Great display and lasting battery
But what makes this powerful phone beautiful is its stunning display. The OnePlus 9RT comes with a 6.62-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with no bezels thanks to a 92.42 percent screen-to-body ratio and 120 Hz refresh rate. The brand has used E4 glossy material to make the display which makes it enjoyable to use as it does not fade in even the brightest lighting conditions. Its own brightness goes up to 1300 nits, making it a glow boss under any circumstances. To keep all the functions running, the phone comes with a massive 4,500mAh battery that can easily last for a day of heavy usage. Even if it runs out of charge, the phone comes with OnePlus’ coveted 65W Warp Charge support and a 65W adapter in the box, which can take your phone from zero to hundred percent in less than half an hour. So you can be back to your OnePlus Action in no time – speaking of which, you can charge and play games at the same time, which brings us to the next point.
Provides a truly immersive gaming experience
The gaming editions on the OnePlus 9RT are also pretty crazy. OnePlus has introduced a large volume X-axis linear motor that brings intelligent 4D haptics. This feature will make you feel every explosion and bump and twist with a different kind of vibration. The phone comes with an industry-leading 600Hz touch sampling rate, which is capable of delivering a response equal to what you would get when gaming with keyboard and mouse. To reinforce those gaming vibes, OnePlus has included an eSports ready three Wi-Fi antenna system that switches between scenarios, optimizing your network’s performance specifically for gaming, regardless of latency. Bites Opportunity This ensures that you never miss a beat or a bullet. Plus the phone’s stereo speakers will create an immersive soundscape that will be really hard to avoid.
ColorOS or OxygenOS, UI will be clean
OnePlus 9RT was launched in China with ColorOS 12. Whether it will come with the same in India or with its trademark Oxygen OS, we have no idea but the thing to remember is that this is a OnePlus product which means a clean UI will run in the phone’s veins whether it is ColorOS12 Yes or OxygenOS. You can be sure that you will get a phone with a clean, tidy and intuitive interface.
and a major killer price
All these specs and numbers suggest that the OnePlus 9RT could go side-by-side with its flagship sibling. While it matches in their specifications and features, it is likely that the phone will come with a price significantly lower than the OnePlus 9, which is already the best flagship smartphone for money in the market. In China, the smartphone was launched for 3,199 Yuan, which is approximately Rs. 37,300. Even taking taxes and charges into account, there is a good chance that the OnePlus 9RT will come with a lighter price tag than the OnePlus 9, making it a true flagship killer. In the best OnePlus tradition. So we would love to see it in India!
