OnePlus 9 RT is the next (and perhaps last) major flagship phone from the company in 2021. Since we know that the OnePlus 9T series is not happening this year, it has been reported that the brand is working on the OnePlus 9 RT launch. The phone is expected to be an improvement on the OnePlus 9R that launched earlier this year. As per a report, OnePlus is planning to launch the OnePlus 9 RT in India and China only. Now, the smartphone has seemingly been spotted on the Indian BIS website, suggesting its imminent launch in the country.
OnePlus MT2111 (possible OnePlus 9 RT) appears on the BIS website
Tipster Mukul Sharma spotted a new OnePlus phone on the Indian BIS website. The model number is MT2111 and it could be the OnePlus 9 RT. The ’21’ in the model number usually refers to the year of launch, which in this case is 2021. The OnePlus 9 RT is the only new OnePlus phone that is expected to launch later this year unless the company has more phones in the pipeline.
OnePlus 9 RT specifications
OnePlus 9 RT specs will be more or less similar to the OnePlus 9R’s as the phone is said to be a modest upgrade only. The OnePlus 9 RT is tipped to get the same 120Hz AMOLED display and Snapdragon 870 chipset as its predecessor. That said, the phone will likely see an upgrade in the camera department. As per reports, the upcoming OnePlus phone will feature a 50MP Sony IMX766 primary sensor that was seen on the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus Nord 2.
Notably, the OnePlus 9 RT will be the first OnePlus phone to ship with Android 12 and OxygenOS 12. Other rumoured OnePlus 9 RT specs include 6.55-inch display size, up to 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage, and a 4,500mAh battery with 65W fast charging support.
The OnePlus 9 RT price is said to start from CNY 2,999 (approx. Rs 34,000). We will have to wait and see what the official OnePlus 9 RT price in India will be.
