OnePlus’ latest phone, the affordable OnePlus 9 RT, gets a limited launch
The OnePlus 9R is considered the entry-level model of the 9 series, offering minor downgrades such as a Snapdragon 870 processor rather than the latest Snapdragon 888. But that’s where the OnePlus 9 RT keeps things interesting: It packs the 888, putting it near the same level as the higher-end 9 models.
Other features include a 6.62-inch screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and support for HDR10+ and a camera setup that houses a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 main sensor, 16-megapixel ultra-wide, and 2-megapixel macro camera. It also offers a 4,500mAh battery, but it lacks wireless charging like the OnePlus 9R.
