OnePlus has unveiled a new smartphone in the OnePlus 9-series. Previously, the brand had hit us with 9R and now it has given us a “T” version. In this post, we will look at the specs, features, availability, and expected price of the OnePlus 9RT in Nepal.

OnePlus 9RT Overview

Display and Design

Starting with the design, the OnePlus 9RT looks a lot like the previous 9R. The phone flaunts a 6.62-inch E4 AMOLED panel with HDR10+ content and a 120Hz refresh rate. It has a pixel capacity of 1080×2400 and the aspect ratio remains 20:9. Likewise, it has 397 PPI density with 100% DCI-P3 coverage. Further, the main highlight in the phone would be the 600Hz touch sampling rate. This is a huge improvement from 240Hz on previous smartphones.

The handset weighs 198.5 grams while embedding the dimension of 162.2×74.6×8.3mm. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. There are three color configurations to choose from – Black, Silver, and Blue.

Performance and Memory

Powering the device is Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset based on a 5nm manufacturing process. Previously, the OnePlus 9R integrated Snapdragon 870 processor. There is a Penta-layer cooling system that covers 19067.4 mm2 which leads to a 20% improvement in heat dissipation.

OnePlus 9RT features

There are three memory options for the smartphone – 8/128GB, 8/256GB, and 12/256GB of UFS 3.1. You can also add 7GB of virtual RAM if required. On the software front, there is Android 12 running on top of the ColorOS 12. However, this is expected to be replaced with OxygenOS if it launches elsewhere from China.

No Hasselblad Camera

Moving on to the camera, there is a rectangular camera module with round edges in the phone. It doesn’t have a Hasselblad camera but Sony 50MP IMX766 sensor in its place. It is the camera used in the ultrawide lens of the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro. However, in the OnePlus 9RT, there is a 16MP ultrawide lens with a 123-degree field of view. Completing the triple camera setup is a 2MP macro shooter.

Battery and Extras

Fueling the device is a Li-Po 4,500mAh battery cell with 65W fast charging. OnePlus claims 29 minutes for the full charge, i.e., 100%. Unfortunately, there is no wireless charging support for the phone. For biometrics, there is an optical under-display fingerprint sensor and a software-based face unlock system.

Further, there is a three-antenna Wi-Fi system with an average latency of 38ms. Other connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS (A-GPS, GLONASS, BDS, GALILEO), and USB Type-C 2.0 for charging.
