OnePlus 9RT is expected to launch soon. A tipster has shared the tentative launch date of the OnePlus smartphone. The upcoming phone is likely to launch by the middle of next month. As per an earlier report, OnePlus 9RT is expected to launch in India and China only and could most likely be the last smartphone launched by OnePlus this year. According to another report, the upcoming smartphone may be powered by a Snapdragon 870 SoC, 8GB of RAM, a triple rear camera setup, and more.
Notable Tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer (@onleaks) tweeted that OnePlus 9RT could launch on October 15. Since this has not yet been confirmed by OnePlus, the information should be taken with a pinch of salt. A report from August also mentioned October as the tentative launch for OnePlus 9RT.
