For example, the body thickness is as thin as 8.295 mm, the body weight is only 198.5 grams, and the frame curvature adopts a 137.5° gold obtuse angle design to match the weight. The application of the balanced design keeps the lightness and thinness and fits the palm better so that the overall weight is significantly reduced and the OnePlus feel is guaranteed.
The OnePlus 9RT screen is equipped with a 6.62-inch E4 OLED straight screen customized by Samsung (provides 600Hz ultra-sensitive touch, which greatly eliminates screen touch delay), provides a self-developed 10,000-level dimming algorithm, and cooperates with two front and rear light sensors.

In response to delays in Wi-Fi signals, OnePlus has launched the industry-leading 3 Wi-Fi antenna system for gaming, which greatly improves Wi-Fi connection speed and network stability.
In terms of camera, the OnePlus 9RT provides IMX 766 flagship main camera + OIS optical image stabilization, and nighthawk night scene algorithm. Equipped with a 4500mAh large battery and 65T super flash charge, it can charge 100% in 29 minutes and supports up to 33W PPS charging protocol.
OnePlus 9RT is the first batch to be equipped with ColorOS 12, and it has also ushered in a comprehensive update in design, convenient functions, and privacy protection. The self-developed photon engine allows the system to also have game-level 3D real-time rendering capabilities. With the support of ColorOS 12’s AI self-smooth engine, the smoothness of the whole machine is fully improved through GPA infinite frame stabilization technology.
Compared with previous-generation games, the stability is improved by 10%, the smoothness of App animation is improved by 10%, the smoothness of sliding is improved by 17%, and the cold start speed of App can be increased by up to 13%. According to the official statement, the OnePlus 9RT has obtained the 36-month non-carton certification from Tyre Laboratories.
