In addition to announcing the flagship smartphones of OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro, OnePlus has announced the third OnePlus 9 series handset. That phone is called the OnePlus 9R, and it is unique to one country, India . That’s true at the moment, anyway.
The OnePlus 9R definitely looks the part
The OnePlus 9R looks the same as a member of the OnePlus 9 series. It is lower on both the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro, though. We’ll get to that in a second, let’s talk about his design very quickly first.
This handset comes with thin bezels, though its bottom bezel is thicker than the rest. It includes a display camera hole in the top left corner, and has a flat display.
You’ll notice four cameras on the back of this device, two of which are quite large. They are all lined up straight, and placed in the top left corner of the back of the phone. The back of the device is curved towards the sides, similar to the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro.
It has the same display as the OnePlus 9
Things get interesting when we look at the specs of this phone. It looks like a cross between the OnePlus 8T and OnePlus 9. The phone has a 6.5-inch fullHD + AMOLED display, like the OnePlus 8T and OnePlus 9. That panel is also 120Hz, as on the other two phones. It’s not flexible, though.
The device is powered by the Snapdragon 870 SoC, and supports 5G connectivity. Some of you may be familiar with that SoC because the recently announced POCO F3 is in use. It is a very capable SoC.
Four cameras are included behind this device
Now, in terms of cameras, the OnePlus 9R features 48, 16, 5, and 2-megapixel units. The 48-megapixel one is the Sony IMX586 sensor from the OnePlus 8 and 8T. That 16-megapixel sensor is the phone’s ultra-wide camera, while the 5 and 2-megapixel units are macro and monochrome sensors, respectively.
This handset includes stereo speakers, while it also comes with UFS 3.1 flash storage. A 4,500mAh battery is included in the package, and that battery can be recharged using Warp Charge 65. In other words, this phone offers a 65W wireless charge.
The device comes either with 8GB or 12GB of RAM with 128GB or 256GB of storage, respectively. An in-display fingerprint scanner is included, an optical one. Bluetooth 5.1 is also part of the picture, as is a warning slider.
