The global launch of the OnePlus 9RT has been confirmed by the company. This handset became official back in October last year, when it launched in China. It has been exclusive to OnePlus’ homeland since then.

The OnePlus 9RT global launch teased, the device is coming to India soon

Well, that will change soon. The company posted a video teaser via its OnePlus India Twitter handle, confirming that the phone is coming, essentially. OnePlus was quite coy, though, as it shared the news via morse code.

In addition to the video, the company shared the following caption: “Get ready to decode greatness. Coming soon!”. Now, when the message gets decoded, it simply says “OnePlus 9RT”.


This is a rather clear confirmation of what’s coming. Considering that this teaser got shared via the OnePlus India Twitter handle, it’s obvious that it’s coming to India. We’re not sure if more markets will follow after that.

Indian models do have the global software, essentially, so this is a global launch of the device no matter the way you slice it. Chances are that the phone won’t change much compared to its China model, save for its software.

This handset resembles the OnePlus 9 & 9 Pro

The OnePlus 9RT does resemble OnePlus’ flagship, when it comes to design. It has a display camera hole in the top-left corner, and three cameras on the back. Even the rear camera module resembles the one on the OnePlus 9 series.


The device features a 6.62-inch fullHD+ (2400 x 1080) AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The Snapdragon 888 fuels the device, and it includes 8GB/12GB of RAM and 128GB/256GB of storage.

The phone also has stereo speakers, while it launched with Android 11 out of the box, along with ColorOS 12. It has two SIM card slots, and a 4,500mAh battery. 65W fast wired charging is also supported, along with a charger.

50, 16, and 2-megapixel cameras sit on the back, while a single 16-megapixel camera is included on the front of the device.


This phone is quite powerful, needless to say, as it’s not far from the OnePlus 9 flagship series in that regard. It will be interesting to see how much will it cost in India.
