These are still all rumours as the company has still not announced the official reveal date. As per the latest leaks, the OnePlus 9RT is expected to launch in India on December 16.
OnePlus 9RT or OnePlus RT?
Several rumours and leaks circulating on the internet suggest that the OnePlus 9RT will launch in India with a different name. But why? Well, the company probably wants to escape from backslash for launching a phone so late in the country. However, consumers are smart enough to identify that. It should be noted that the final retail name is yet to be confirmed by the company.

Specifications to be the same
Besides the name change, the OnePlus RT is expected to pack the same set of specifications. This means that the smartphone will come packed with a 6.62-inch FHD+ OLED panel with support for a 120hz screen refresh rate and a punch-hole camera.
The smartphone is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor and backed by a 4500mAh battery with support for 65W fast charging out-of-the-box.
In terms of camera specifications, the OnePlus 9RT (OnePlus RT Indian model) comes packed with a 50-megapixel primary sensor coupled with a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens and a 2-megapixel macro lens. For selfies and video calls, the phone includes a 16-megapixel selfie shooter.
What about the price?
In China, the OnePlus 9RT comes at a price starting at CNY 3,299 (roughly Rs. 38,600). This is for the base model with 8GB RAM + 128GB storage.
