Both these announcements come on the same day, as OnePlus is offering launch price discounts on these devices in association with banking partners.
OnePlus 9RT 5G
First up the OnePlus 9RT 5G smartphone, which initially launched in China in October 2021, has now landed in the Indian subcontinent. The phone is a logical successor to the OnePlus 9R with its refreshing design, faster Snapdragon 888 SoC, and a better set of cameras.
9RT 5G has a 6.62-inch E4 AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz and an excellent 600Hz Touch-Sampling rate. The device gets a 16MP selfie shooter in the form of a left-aligned hole-punch camera. There is a triple-camera setup on the rear including a 50MP primary shooter, 16MP ultra-wide lens, and 20MP depth sensor.
The brand-new OnePlus device with 4,500mAh battery (65W fast charging support) comes in two hardware configurations – 8GB RAM and 128GB storage for Rs. 42,999 (approx. $579), and 12GB of RAM and 256GB storage for Rs. 46,999 (approx. $633). The RAM used here is LPDDR5 and the storage is UFS 3.1.
OnePlus Buds Z2

Battery life on the ANC earbuds is an impressive 38 hours in total – with seven hours on standalone mode and the rest via the charging case. They have an IP55 dust and water resistance, and the charging case also has an IPX4 rating for water resistance. The buds weigh 4.5 grams each and the charging case weighs 40.5 grams in total.
