Chinese premium smartphone company OnePlus introduced the OnePlus 9RT in China last month. Since then the Indian launch of the smartphone has been tipped several times. However, it has been over a month now but the company has now yet shared any details about when the phone will arrive in the country. But we have got some fresh information for those who are eagerly waiting for the smartphone. The news is that the device has been sighted on two platforms indicating the launch.
Tipster Mukul Sharma managed to spot the OnePlus 9RT on both Google Play listings. In addition to this, the smartphone was also spotted listed on Google Supported Devices List. The device bears the same model number on each of the Google websites but is entirely different from the Chinese variant. According to the tipster the smartphone is listed as OnePlus RT.
The upcoming smartphone lately appeared on the BIS website hinting at the India launch, Some past reports stated that the phone could get launched in November but OnePlus has not said anything on the Indian availability of the smartphone.
Previously, the OnePlus 9RT was expected to be priced in India between Rs 40,000 and Rs 44,000. To recall, in China the handset is priced at CYN 3,299 that translates to Rs 38,600 for the 8GB RAM with 128GB storage. Whereas the 8GB RAM with 256GB storage variant costs CYN 3,499 which converts to Rs 40,900. The 12GB RAM with 256GB storage option is priced at CYN 3,799 that comes roughly around Rs 44,400.
