Rumor: OnePlus 9 RT is in the works, an upgraded 9R with the 50MP IMX766 sensor

19 August 2021
This sensor is used in the ultra wide camera on the 9 and 9 Pro and as the main sensor on the Nord 2.

2 things.

1. Battery could've been bumped up to 5000mAh, but they didn't.
2. Global markets so custom ROMs don't suffer like their crappy 9R and Nord2, but they didn't.

OnePlus should change their slogan from "Never Settle" to "But we don't".

The Android Freak, 19 Aug 2021I hope one of the nords have snapdragon 778G.Then wait for the A52s 5g It has the 778G chipset

It is sad to hear that it would be only available to limited markets, which means it would not be released globally.

Similarly, people who care about photography (i.e., use the smartphone to take vacation photos) are acutely aware of the camera software quality, camera sensors, type of lenses, and whether any of the cameras has OIS.

OhNom, 19 Aug 2021"Until 7T too ... it was good ..." He refers t... moreIt’s understandable that they wanted 7 and a 7 pro.. and with half yearly refresh its 7t and 7t pro.. 7t and 7t pro were identical phones, just display, battery and zoom camera difference. Same strategy like apple. 7t and 7t pro were both flagships. Even then what you say 5 phones.. Look what happened including oneplus 8 and everything in between.. oneplus 8, 8 pro, 8 5g uw, 8 5g tmobile, nord.. oneplus 8t, 8t 5g ,nord n100, nord n10 5g, 9 handsets.. You can deny all you want.. but go search youtube.. oneplus is nobody’s favourite brand anymore for big youtubers. Oneplus was a special enthusiast brand.. and now it is a generic oppo mobile..

It’s

Pumpino, 19 Aug 2021If the Nord 2 has OIS and the 9RT doesn't, doesn'... moreI think the 9 RT will probably have a slightly better ultrawide than the Nord 2 but overall will be similar enough. However, probably the largest market for this will be China where the Nord series is not sold at all so it makes sense in China. In India the option of the Nord 2 will also exist so the market positioning will be a little more complicated. I'd expect this to have OIS

Shadocx, 20 Aug 2021So you think people pick a phone based only on the main cam... moreI imagine that the chip and camera sensor (including whether or not it has OIS) would be high on the list for most people.

Pumpino, 19 Aug 2021If the Nord 2 has OIS and the 9RT doesn't, doesn'... moreSo you think people pick a phone based only on the main camera sensor or chipset?

YUKI93, 19 Aug 2021Basically a Nord 2 with Snapdragon 870 chipset.The Nord 2 has a plastic frame, a smaller 90 Hz display, 8 MP ultra wide angle sensor, no macro lens and USB 2.0, too much differences to say that.

Guest from the best, 19 Aug 20219R is nice, but lacking OIS on main camera unit declines my... moreI think you are confused between the cheaper 9R and more expensive 9. 9R is an 8T rebrand and does have OIS, it's the more expensive 9 that doesn't have OIS.

Anonymous, 20 Aug 2021Yes Dimensity 1200 is good But as good as sd870? And btw ... moreHave you not seen the night shots taken with the Nord2 compared to other phones? Sure the Nord 2 may not have 4k60fps but at that point it becomes a subject of taste.

But as good as sd870?
And btw don't forget inferior MediaTek ISP ,It can't take full advantage of IMX766

Hello Life, 19 Aug 2021Why wasnt oppo, vivo, realme and don't know what other... more"Until 7T too ... it was good ..."

He refers to
Oneplus 7
Oneplus 7T
Oneplus 7 Pro
Oneplus 7T Pro
Oneplus 7T Pro Mclaren edition

If you found line 7 right, I don't see where you find the problem you mention

If the Nord 2 has OIS and the 9RT doesn't, doesn't that make the Nord 2 superior? It also has more supported bands and global availability. Also, I see people recommending the 8T over the Nord 2. Why? The Nord 2 has a superior rear camera. The Dimensity 1200 is more than adequate. Are people jumping on the 8T and 9RT because of the Snapdragon chips? I received my Nord 2 yesterday and it's great.
