To the surprise of the most neglected, OnePlus today confirmed the launch of a new smartphone. Through the Weibo social network, the technology announced the launch of OnePlus 9RT and also OnePlus Buds Z2.
It will be the day October 13, Wednesday, that the Chinese brand will unveil the new products. The presentation will take place in China and it is not yet known if the OnePlus 9RT will be available in all markets.
OnePlus 9RT is the brand’s least expected smartphone
I remember that Pete Lau, founder and CEO of OnePlus, said that the brand would not launch a Model T in 2021. It would be the break from a tradition started in 2016 when the brand introduced the OnePlus 3T.
From there, it became a tradition for the Chinese brand to release two Android tops per year. The former are usually presented in the spring and the respective T models are presented in the fall.
Therefore, the launch of the OnePlus 9RT is contrary to the claims of Pete Lau, although it is speculated that this smartphone will not be for everyone. Considering that the OnePlus 9R was only marketed in China and India, it is feared that the same will be repeated with the 9RT.
Perhaps this helps justify why Pete Lau ruled out a Model T release this year. Because it is not a model for all markets, OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro are still available in these.
OnePlus Buds Z2 will also be unveiled next week
Following the announcement of the OnePlus 9RT presentation, the brand announced that it will present the OnePlus Buds Z2. This is the new generation of wireless headphones from the Chinese brand.
The similar design of the original model is confirmed, so the improvements will be in the interior. From superior sound quality to greater autonomy.
Additionally, the Z2 Buds must provide active noise cancellation. A feature that attracts more and more users and that they can find here for a better price.
Unlike the OnePlus 9RT, the Z2 Buds should be available globally. It remains to be seen when they will be available and how much they will cost.
