It’s possible that OnePlus has ended the year. The Chinese smartphone maker may not be in a hurry to release a flagship phone this year, but it could debut just one more device before calling it a year.
The next OnePlus phone, which is rumored to be called the OnePlus 9RT, could be a successor to the low-cost flagship OnePlus 9R that debuted earlier this year. According to reports, however, the phone will be launched later this month.
The OnePlus 9RT has been spotted on GeekBench, where it has already begun to keep up with the launch process. The score there implies that the phone will have a Snapdragon 888 processor and up to 12GB of RAM.

The OnePlus 9T will have a better camera and an improved design. The handset is also expected to come with Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line SoC, which will enable manufacturers to offer more advanced smartphone features.
As a result, the OnePlus 9R should get a brighter display and improved sound quality, as well as faster Wi-Fi speeds.
Left out of this equation is the fact that many users prefer larger batteries in order to preserve their charge longer while using their phones for extended periods of time during the day or night.
This leaves the OnePlus 9R with more room for improvement and may be introduced with Qualcomm’s flagship processor. This allows OnePlus enough time to iron out software issues based on community feedback, if any, while also giving
