However, it carried a slightly different moniker, the OnePlus RT. OnePlus has not confirmed that it will launch the OnePlus 9 RT/OnePlus RT in India. However, 91mobiles has spotted a fresh piece of evidence that hints at its upcoming launch. The publication recently spotted an Amazon India ad in the Google search results.

In collaboration with 91mobiles, leaker Mukul Sharma tweeted a screenshot of the OnePlus RT Amazon India ad that showed up on Google Search results.

It is still unclear whether this is a sign of the RT’s imminent launch in India. Alternatively, this could be a backend mistake. To recall, OnePlus hasn’t confirmed that the phone will launch in India.
