OnePlus 9RT 5G flagship has been officially launched in China, as promised. It comes as an iterative upgrade to the OnePlus 9R from earlier this year and is also the first phone to ship with the latest ColorOS 12 skin out of the box. It retains a similar design as the OnePlus 9, with a punch-hole cutout for the selfie snapper, a rectangular module to house triple sensors, and an in-display fingerprint sensor for security. OnePlus had already confirmed there won’t be any T series flagship for global markets this year, which also leads us to believe the OnePlus 9RT will not be made available in the UK and USA markets. Either way, now that the phone is officially introduced, here are five things you should know about it. Read on.
