    OnePlus 9RT Review

    OnePlus 9RT is a modest tweak on the mid-range OnePlus 9R, which was launched previously in 2021. To everyone’s surprise, OnePlus 9RT ships with Oxygen OS 11 based on Android 11 instead of the ColorOS which everyone including me was expecting. OnePlus 9RT seems more like a sibling of the OnePlus 9, despite the fact that people are calling it to be an improved version of the OnePlus 9R. The almost same appearance of all the three OnePlus devices shows the company’s design continuity. The tight fit of the rounded frames and back cover, as well as the weight of less than 200g, can offer a great user experience.  Features like NFC and stereo dual speakers are also included. If I had to sum up the OnePlus 9RT’s design in a single sentence, it would be: it appears ordinary, but it’s a pleasure to use.

    OnePlus 9RT’s core specs include a Snapdragon 888 processor, LDDDR5 memory, and UFS 3.1 flash memory. The 9RT appears to have made some tweaks in gaming, so users who enjoy gaming may want to consider this model. I will talk about the actual performance in real life in the coming detailed review.

    The camera on the OnePlus 9RT should be the most significant upgrade. Talking about the camera, the 50MP IMX766 primary camera is definitely a major upgrade. The daylight performance is excellent in my first impressions, and the colours come out stunning. OnePlus 9RT comes with a 4500mAh battery that supports 65T wired fast charging. The fast charging has my heart though this is nothing new. It went 100 from 0 in just around half an hour. 

    Kindly note, there is still no IP rating and wireless charging feature in the OnePlus 9RT, for which I have long cursed OnePlus in my reviews.

    For buyers looking for near-flagship specs at a more affordable price, the weirdly-named OnePlus 9RT could be the right fit for you.
