The second product unveiled at the event was OnePlus’ latest smartphone, the OnePlus 9RT 5G. Packed with edgy, top of the line hardware and impressive design, the 9RT 5G is everything you need from a smartphone in 2022. Starting with the 5G bands - this smartphone is future-ready as it has 12 5G bands. The OnePlus 9RT 5G boasts a sleek design with a thickness of just 8.295mm and weighing a few grams under 200g. The tall boy smartphone has the signature OnePlus in-hand feel, making it stand out from the rest. The front of the device is an expansive 6.62-inch E4 OLED flat display with a 120Hz refresh rate and 300Hz touch sampling rate (which can clock up to 600Hz while gaming), making it one of the best flat display panels out there. OnePlus has a reputation for adding great internals to its smartphones, and the 9RT 5G is no different. Under the hood, the OnePlus 9RT 5G has the flagship Snapdragon 888 mobile chipset paired with 8/12GB of LPDDR5 memory & 128/256GB of UFS3.1 high-speed flash memory. This alone should make the smartphone a performance beast, but what makes the OnePlus 9RT 5G blazingly fast is its ability to cool itself off. How? This has been possible because the 9RT 5G is equipped with OnePlus’ most advanced Vapour Chamber cooling system. In terms of battery life, the OnePlus 9RT 5G packs a large 4500mAh battery which should easily last for a full day of use. And to juice up the battery, the smartphone supports Warp Charge 65T, which means it would take 15 minutes to charge from 1% to 65%, and 100% in just 29 minutes. Now, that counts for a great battery experience.

In the recent past, OnePlus smartphones have emerged as a top contender in the camera department, and the 9RT 5G tries to continue the same. Taking the primary sensor from the OnePlus 9 series, the 9RT 5G has the same 50MP Sony IMX766 Image Sensor in the triple rear camera setup. There’s a 16MP 123-degree ultra-wide angle lens and a dedicated 2MP Macro lens. The camera setup is great for smartphone photographers as it allows them to shoot in various conditions. In low-light conditions, the massive 1/1.56 inch sensor comes in handy to capture enough light. Furthermore, while shooting videos, the addition of OIS (optical image stabilization) ensures crisp and stable videos are captured. And then there’s the Ultra-Res mode, which is designed for high-precision photography, capturing picture-perfect billion-pixel images with exceptional detail far exceeding other 108 MP hardware currently available.
