OnePlus 9RT and the OnePlus Buds Z2 Launch have been in speculation for a very long time.

After a few delays and rumors of its initial launch date of 16th December, OnePlus has finally launched the smartphone and its new wireless on 14 January 2022 in India

OnePlus 9RT and OnePlus Buds Z2 were previously launched in China.

OnePlus 9RT is the successor of the previously launched OnePlus 9R, which is a premium mid-tier smartphone that is priced around the Rs 40,000 price bracket.

On the other hand, the OnePlus Buds Z2 is the successor of the budget OnePlus Buds Z launched at the Rs 3000 price bracket

Let’s see what the new smartphone and wireless bud bring to the table from their predecessors

OnePlus 9RT Specifications

The new mid-tier smartphone from the OnePlus shares almost the same specs as its predecessor OnePlus 9R, with few highlights and design changes

OnePlus 9RT Display

OnePlus 9RT features a 6.62-inch AMOLED display which comes with a 120hz Refresh rate with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels.

The display has Corning Gorilla Glass protection on the front. But unfortunately, OnePlus doesn’t specify which generation of Gorilla Glass it’s using

Unlike its Pro variant, it features a flat display which gives an 87.9% screen-to-body ratio.

The front also features the Selfie Camera which remains to be a 16MP that can shoot upto 1080 at 30fps for front camera view recording

OnePlus 9RT Camera

Unlike OnePlus 9R which came with four cameras on its back, the OnePlus 9RT comes with a Triple camera setup.

But to be honest, it’s actually good that they didn’t go for an extra 2MP camera lens for the sake of calling it a Quad Camera Setup.

Unfortunately, the third camera is still a 2MP macro lens on the OnePlus 9RT and not a telephoto lens.

OnePlus 9RT features a Triple Camera Setup that includes a 50-megapixel primary Sony IMX766 lens, a 16-megapixel 123-degree ultra-wide lens, and a 2-megapixel macro lens

The 50MP primary camera lens is the same one used previously in OnePlus 9 Pro. So you will definitely see better performance from the main camera in comparison to the 9R.

So basically a decent camera setup, but nothing out of the box. But this is a premium budget segment smartphone, so can’t complain much.

If you are solemnly looking for a smartphone with a great camera in the Rs 40-50k price tag, I would suggest you take a look at the recently launched Samsung Galaxy S21 FE which starts at Rs 50k (including the 5k HDFC card discount)

Here is a video by Ershad who compares the OnePlus 9RT and the Galaxy S21 FE. Clearly Samsung has the edge but at an extra cost.

OnePlus 9RT Chipset and Storage Options

OnePlus 9RT is still sticking with the last generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 which isn’t a bad thing, but I think a lot of people are expecting to start their year with the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in a smartphone that costs over 40k INR

Despite not using the latest and greatest, we already know how powerful the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 is. And for most users, it’s gonna give you the best performance on both your day-to-day tasks as well as high settings gaming.

The OnePlus 9RT can be configured up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and maximum storage of 256GB UFS3.1 flash memory. It will be available in 2 configurations.

OnePlus 9RT Battery and Charging

Like OnePlus 9RT features a big 4500mAh battery which should be good enough to last you for the entire day. Of course, real-life testing is yet to be done before we can say anything more.

But expect the same battery performance as the OnePlus 9R.

OnePlus 9RT supports the 65W Warp Charging which charges the phone from 0% to 100% charge in 29 minutes

It does not support any kind of Wireless charging, which remains for its Pro variant only

Is There Hasselblad Partnership for OnePlus 9RT?

Unlike the flagship smartphones like the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro or the recently launched OnePlus 10 Pro, the OnePlus 9RT doesn’t come with any Hasselblad Partnership

We have yet to see results with the 2nd generation of Hasselblad partnership with the OnePlus 10 Pro, which is expected to give some amazing results with an upgraded OnePlus 10 Pro camera setup
