The OnePlus 9RT is intended for the power user and runs on the Snapdragon 888 processor, catching up with the OnePlus 9 and 9Pro, with 12GB of LPDDR5 memory and 256GB of UFS3.1 storage .There’s no memory card slot.
The phone has a good 6.62 inch FullHD AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, manually adjustable down to 60Hz. The display has a 300Hz touch sampling rate, high to begin with, and it goes up to 600Hz while gaming. This is just one of the tweaks and upgrades that make this device usable by both regular users and gamers. The Dolby Atmos enabled stereo speakers have a nice, deep and loud sound that goes well with the display.
Surprisingly, this phone comes with Android 11 out of the box.
OnePlus, at one time, used to even be faster than the Pixel with its Android update but now seems to be running behind. It will eventually get there, of course, but for now, users will need to wait. The phone uses OxygenOS 11.3 but this is an interface that is slowly moving away from what it was and merging with ColorOS. That isn’t necessarily a problem, but it’s just that the tech savvy thrived on OxygenOS. The phone feels extremely fast and snappy to use with no hint of lag anywhere. It doesn’t heat up at all. It has a strong haptic motor with which you get a more than satisfying amount of feedback as you use the phone, specially for gaming.
This device charges its 4,500mAh battery in about half an hour. There’s the 65W charger in the box with a USB-A to USB-C slot. The fingerprint sensor is an in-display one. Don’t expect a 3.5mm jack, but do look for the famous alert slider which is very much in its regular place on the right edge. This is a 5G phone and supports eight bands.
