OnePlus 9RT smartphone will reportedly get two variants in India, but it is likely to arrive in the country with a slightly different moniker. If rumors making the rounds on the internet are anything to go by, the OnePlus 9RT will go official in India with the OnePlus RT moniker. A tweet from noted leaker Mukul Sharma last month corroborated this speculation. Sharma spotted the OnePlus RT smartphone on the official OnePlus Care app in India.
Last month, OnePlus brought the OnePlus 9RT smartphone into the Chinese market. Not too long ago, the smartphone was spotted on the list of Google Supported devices with the aforesaid moniker. Back in November, 91mobiles suggested that the OnePlus RT smartphone’s India launch could be around the corner. The publication discovered an Amazon ad on Google Search. However, OnePlus is still mum on its plan to launch the OnePlus RT in India.
OnePlus 9RT Could Have Two Variants
Taking to his Twitter account earlier today (December 2), noted leaker Yogesh Brar shared some vital information about the Indian variant of the OnePlus 9RT phone. According to the leaker, two variants of the OnePlus 9RT will be available in the country. This speculation does not coincide with earlier reports that there will be a OnePlus 9RT base variant with 6GB of RAM.
Just two 9 RT variants for India as well, unlike the reports that point towards a 6GB model.
Pricing like I previously said is agressive and between ₹40-44k.

The aforesaid variants will probably include 8GB RAM+128GB storage and a 12GB RAM+256GB storage variant. Brar predicts that the OnePlus will set aggressive pricing for the OnePlus 9RT Indian variant. In other words, the device could carry a price tag ranging from INR 40,000 to INR 44,000 in India. To recall, the 8GB RAM+128GB ROM variant of the OnePlus 9RT sells for RMB 3,299.
Likewise, the phone’s 8GB RAM+256GB storage model sells for RMB 2499. The highest-end variant that comes with 12GB RAM and offers 256GB storage will set you back RMB 3799.
