OnePlus 9RT specifications

The OnePlus 9RT has a 6.62-inch Full HD+ Fluid AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels, 120Hz refresh rate, 1300nits brightness, and HDR10+ support. The display panel also has Corning Gorilla Glass protection and an optical in-display fingerprint scanner.

The handset is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 octa-core SoC manufactured on a 5nm technology. The Snapdragon 888 has an Adreno 660 GPU built-in. Up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS3.1 storage is available on the device.

The smartphone’s Chinese version runs Android 12. However, the smartphone was discovered on the Google Play Supported Devices list with Android 11, so it’s unclear if the OnePlus 9RT will ship with Android 11 or Android 12 in India. A 4,500mAh battery powers the OnePlus smartphone, which offers 65W Warp Charge 65 rapid charging.

In terms of optics, the 9RT has a triple rear camera configuration with an LED flash. A 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor serves as the device’s primary camera. The smartphone also has a 16MP ultra-wide-angle lens and a 2MP macro lens. For selfies and video calls, the 9RT has a 16MP Sony IMX471 camera with EIS.

OnePlus Buds Z2 specifications

Coming to the OnePlus Buds Z2, the TWS earbuds include ANC up to 40db, which blocks out ambient noise while also allowing you to hear what’s going on around you. There’s also a transparency mode, which allows you to hear what’s going on around you. The TWS earbuds use the same 11mm, bass-tuned dynamic drivers, as the OnePlus Buds Pro. As a result, we can assume it will deliver high-quality music. There’s a three-mic configuration that’s been tuned to eliminate noise and wind disturbances, as well as compatibility for Dolby Atmos.
