OnePlus 9RT India launch is expected later this month. Ahead of that, the handset price has surfaced online. Per the leak, the OnePlus 9RT, which was recently announced in China, could be priced the same as the OnePlus 8T (review) from last year. The handset is an upgrade to the OnePlus 9R (review) that rocks Snapdragon 870 SoC and 48MP triple rear cameras. The OnePlus 9RT specs, on the other hand, include the flagship Snapdragon 888 SoC and triple rear cameras with a 50MP primary sensor. The handset also rocks 65W fast charging, 6.64-inch 120Hz refresh rate display, and ColorOS instead of OxygenOS atop Android 12 out of the box.
OnePlus 9RT pricing estimates are coming in. Will be between 40-44k.
I expect it to be launched at the same price 8T came in (₹42,999).
