OnePlus announces a Winter Edition launch event for the 9RT and Buds Z2 in India
OnePlus' closest successor to the 2020 8T was the 9RT, an attractive prospect due to its Snapdragon 888 processor and 50MP main camera in a package priced at ~US$500 at launch. However, in a potential disappointment for many fans of the brand, it remained a Chinese-market exclusive from its launch.
Now, it seems the OEM is ready to release it outside of this market. Its Indian division's latest tweets have confirmed this, starting with a teaser spelling the phone's name out in Morse code and culminating in a date and time for this "Winter" event.
This series of posters (and GIFs) also indicate that the device will launch under its original product name, thereby debunking leaks pointing to a slight rebrand. These details, along with final pricing for the 9RT, not to mention the Buds Z2, should be confirmed on January 14, 2022 at 17:00 IST.
Oddly, this is 3 days after the date rumored to see a debut for the OEM's next 10 Pro flagship. Therefore, this could be the latest and best indication that the event in question pertains to the Chinese market only.
