OnePlus launched the 9RT smartphone in China back in October, and we finally have a confirmation it is going global. The Indian division of the brand posted a morse code on Twitter with the message “Get ready to decode greatness. Coming soon!” and after quick decryption, the code simply said “OnePlus 9RT”.

The OnePlus 9RT is a Snapdragon 888-powered device and fancy cooling. The display is 6.62” AMOLED with all the fancy bells and whistles such as HDR10+ support, sRGB and DCI-P3 support, 120 Hz refresh rate, 600 Hz touch sampling rate.
The trio of cameras on the back has some flagship potential with a 50 MP main shooter and a Sony IMX766 sensor behind, but the second cam is a 16 MP ultra-wide-angle, while the third is a classic macro lens – no portrait cam with optical zoom whatsoever.
The price of the OnePlus 9RT was around CNY3,300 (about $510/€450) when it was launched in China. On the global scene, we expect some market adjustments, and Indian customers should be able to buy it for around INR40,000-45,000, while Europe is likely to see a €549 starting price.
