OnePlus has had a hectic start to the year 2022. In China, the OnePlus 10 Pro, the company’s current flagship, was just released. This will eventually be released in India, most likely alongside other models like the OnePlus 10 and 10R. For the time being, Indian tech fans will have to make do with one last from the 9 series, the OnePlus 9 RT.
The OnePlus 9RT is packaged in a simple red box with the standard set of accessories, including a case and charger. It’s refreshing to see a company that isn’t mindlessly following unpopular smartphone trends like eliminating the charger. OnePlus claims to have spent a significant amount of time improving the 9RT’s appearance and feel, and it shows. The Hacker Black variant’s curved metal frame is incredibly comfortable to grip, and the smooth finish of the glass rear panel feels really expensive. When light hits it, it has a lovely sheen to it, and it doesn’t appear to attract fingerprints. Nano Silver is also an option for the OnePlus 9RT.
