OnePlus has made a name for itself as a flagship killer manufacturer. Since then, a little time has passed, but the term itself has faded and almost disappeared. Now the company produces by no means cheap flagships and is trying at the middle segment. The future device of the company is OnePlus 9RT, which will not differ in the most pressing characteristics. But it will be an interesting device for its class.
Through the efforts of one of the network informers, many of the characteristics of the device became known to the general public. The source indicates that the OnePlus 9RT will receive a 6.55-inch Super AMOLED E3 display from Samsung with a 120Hz refresh rate and a resolution of 2400×1080 pixels, a Snapdragon 870 chipset, 8/12 GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 128/256 GB of UFS. 3.1 storage.
The OnePlus 9RT has a 4500mAh battery with support for 65W fast charging. For selfies, a 16-megapixel Sony IMX471 module will be offered and the main camera will receive a set of three 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 sensors, a 16-megapixel Sony IMX481 wide sensor and a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor.
Other features of the OnePlus 9RT include Gorilla Glass 5 on the front, an NFC module, a couple of Dolby Atmos-enabled stereo speakers, a linear vibration motor and a special matte Gorilla Glass on the back.
The OnePlus 9RT will be released in October and will offer a choice of three variants. 8/128 GB – $ 460, 8/256 GB – $ 507 and 12/256 GB – $ 555. For comparison, in China for the OnePlus 9R at the start of sales, they asked $ 459 and $ 505 for versions with 8/128 GB and 12/256 GB of memory, respectively. According to rumors, the smartphone will be one of the first devices to offer Android 12 out of the box with the proprietary OxygenOS shell.
Oppo and OnePlus
Oppo and OnePlus are actively pursuing the merger. At first, everything was presented as an attempt to combine the strength, experience and knowledge, first of all, of software developers. But later it became clear that everything could end for OnePlus; with total control by Oppo and it would simply be a sub-brand.
After the announcement of the merger; OnePlus has every reason to not hide its relationship with Oppo and not try to pretend that it is independent. But for some reason, the sub-brand continues the policy of hiding “whose blood it is”. So, enthusiasts “opened” the OnePlus Nord 2 firmware and found traces there; indicating the company’s desire not to advertise the connection with Oppo.
In particular, in the line of code, two P letters were “erased”, leaving only the mention of “o ** o”. Moreover, even before the announcement of OnePlus Nord 2; the company announced that ColorOS and OxygenOS will use the same code; and the Nord 2 will be the first smartphone with firmware with a single codebase.
