OnePlus 9RT Features Review
The OnePlusT phones were quite the trendsetters when released. The OnePlus T phones used to experiment with new designs and colours. For instance, the OnePlus 8T had a flattened display while thickening the device to fit the larger battery and cooling vents. There is no information to suggest that the 9RT would be different. According to sources, OnePlus will bring back the same flat, 6.55 inches panel as before.
If there are any designs changes expected, it is expected to be with the camera module. As with the previous model, OnePlus kept the same design as 8T with the 9R with adjustment done to the camera module. The 9R camera module is a bit wide and crowded than the 8T module, but since the 9RT is expected to have a new camera it is possible that the design of the camera module might be different from the previous models of the phone. The rumours for the colour option for the 9RT is black and blue for now.
As we know that the 9RT is similar in many ways to the 9R. Just like the 9R that was expected to have a glass back and a plastic frame. The previously cancelled 9R model was supposedly waterproof but with no water resistance. So the 9RT is also expected to have some water protection but not enough to play around with near a pool.
Accordingly, The OnePlus dual stereo speaker system and the in-screen fingerprint sensor is expected to return too.
The 9R was categorized as a gamer phone, meaning a phone for gamers. It had a core hardware capability of handling games well with the snapdragon 870 chipsets. As said Like the 9R, the 9RT will also have the Snapdragon 870 chipset. The change in the 9RT is that the phone 870 chipsets will have the higher binning meaning it will run faster, but could also run slightly hotter. With the 870 chipsets, which seemed primed for gaming needs. The new OnePlus 9RT could also be categorized as a gamer phone. The biggest highlight of the 9RT is, it’s the first OnePlus phone to run Android 12-based or OxygenOS 12. The OxygenOS 12 would bring some major changes to the OnePlus phones in performances and the 9RT is the first that will get the stable build. With OxygenOS 12, OnePlus can give the audience the “game-ry version” with special themes and gaming tools with the 9RT
