Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus is reportedly planning to launch a new smartphone – OnePlus 9 RT – in October.

According to Android Central, the smartphone will offer modest upgrades over the OnePlus 9R. As for availability, the OnePlus 9 RT will debut in the India and China markets, similar to the 9R.

This is the only phone in the numbered flagship series that’s on the cards for later this year; there will be two Nord launches, but no new devices aimed at the high-end segment, the report said citing sources.

As for the hardware on offer, the OnePlus 9 RT uses the 9R as a foundation, so it will feature the same 120Hz AMOLED panel, a higher-binned version of the Snapdragon 870, and a 4500mAh battery with 65W charging.

There will be camera-focused upgrades, with the phone picking up the 50MP Sony IMX766 that’s featured in the OnePlus 9 series as well as the Nord 2, the report said.

While the sensor served as the wide-angle lens on the OnePlus 9 series, it became the primary module on the Nord 2, and that will be the case on the OnePlus 9 RT as well, it added.
