    Hi friends,

    We recently unveiled the exciting new OnePlus 9 Series and the OnePlus Watch. Now, we’re introducing the OnePlus 9R 5G in India, our latest entry in the OnePlus 9 Series, that brings best-in-class performance for gaming enthusiasts.

    The OnePlus 9R 5G reiterates our goal to make the premium OnePlus smartphone experience accessible to more users at wider price points. Powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870, smooth 120 Hz Fluid AMOLED Display and super-fast Warp Charge 65, the OnePlus 9R 5G put smooth scrolling, immersive gaming controls and a superior viewing experience in your hands.

    Superior Power and Performance
    Your gaming experience is fueled by performance three-fold – blazing-fast performance, networking, and storage. OnePlus 9R’s Snapdragon 870 offers processing speeds that are 12.6% faster than the previous generation, ensuring you the smooth gaming experience you deserve and demand.

    In addition, the OnePlus 9R 5G’s UFS 3.1 flash storage delivers roughly 3x faster performance than UFS 3.0, surpassing even a PC-based SATA SSD running at 540 MB/s, empowering you to multitask with ease. You’ll spend more time in-game and less time looking at loading screens. The OnePlus 9R 5G also provides dual-mode NSA + SA 5G and Wi-Fi 6 support for faster, more reliable data speeds and enhanced flexibility.

    120 Hz Fluid AMOLED Display
    A phone only feels as fast as the display allows it to so OnePlus 9R 5G’s 6.55” Fluid AMOLED Display offers ultra-smooth scrolling in every frame. With its crisp 120 Hz panel, the flat display delivers an unforgettable visual experience. The bright 1,100 nits and the 8,192 levels of automatic brightness ensure you can enjoy this display’s enhanced color accuracy and detail in any lighting conditions.

    Unparalleled Gaming
    Designed with both casual and hardcore gamers in mind, the OnePlus 9R 5G’s 240 Hz touch sampling rate allows users to simultaneously use up to five fingers for even faster gaming and smoother performance. Furthermore, it features an X-axis linear motor, which can be easily tuned to produce excellent dynamic vibration, simulating different styles of in-game vibrations to provide an immersive gaming experience.

    Your multimedia experience is then brought to life thanks to powerful dual stereo speakers that deliver an intense, life-like 3D soundscape, as Dolby Atmos audio elevates situational awareness with augmented directional audio cues. 

    You’ll also be able to play for longer. The OnePlus 9R 5G takes mobile gaming one step further, with a state-of-the-art multi-layer cooling system. The system uses a graphite and copper-lined vapor chamber, keeping the device cool and guaranteeing stable performance, whether plugged in while gaming or pushing the most demanding mobile titles on the road.

    Finally, the Pro Gaming Mode optimizes OnePlus 9R 5G’s system resources and minimizes unwanted distractions so that games perform at their best. While enabled, Pro Gaming Mode restricts background apps, reduces lag, and improves the user’s overall gaming experience. Advanced DND features can even block calls and notifications so that your winning streak doesn’t end when you least expect.

    Warp Charge 65
    No mobile gamer wants to be tethered to the wall. With Warp Charge 65, you get a day’s charge in 15 minutes, and a full battery in just 39 minutes. Meanwhile, the large 4,500 mAh battery with improved dual-cell design charges cooler and safer thanks to the integrated circuitry integration in the cable.

    Advanced Quad-Camera System
    The OnePlus 9R 5G’s main camera features a customized 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor that ensures faster focus speeds, greater color accuracy, and cleaner shots in all scenarios. The Nightscape mode adds clarity and detail to bright spots like your favorite cityscapes at night. The OnePlus 9R 5G’s main camera also features enhanced OIS for greater image stability allowing for sharp and blur-free long exposure shots. 

    The OnePlus 9R 5G’s ultra-wide camera uses a 16MP Sony IMX481 1/3.09" sensor and a 123-degree ultra-wide angle that allows you to capture stunning panoramic shots. With a wide f/2.2 aperture, you are able to snap detailed images in low-light conditions. The OnePlus 9R 5G also brings the virtual world into focus with an exclusive cyberpunk-style filter. Video footage is remarkably smooth thanks to EIS, and with Video Portrait Mode, you get a great bokeh effect for a truly cinematic feel. 

    The device also features a 5MP macro lens, while a dedicated monochrome camera works with the main camera for detailed and layered black and white photos.  


    With rounded corners that make gaming marathons so much more comfortable, the OnePlus 9R 5G is a blend of high-end materials and meticulous craftsmanship. The Lake Blue colorway has micro-patterns etched in a fine layer of film, giving this color variant its subtle reflections and frosted look. The second colorway, Carbon Black, offers a distinct silky-smooth hand-feel with its anti-glare glass finish.  

    Fast and Smooth OxygenOS 11
    OxygenOS 11 represents the best ideas from our community optimized to work seamlessly with the OnePlus 9R 5G. Swipe into the most intuitive, personalized smartphone experience. With Turbo Boost 3.0, the OnePlus 9R 5G enables you to have 25% more apps opened in the background than before. We achieved this with the help of two technologies: RAM compression, which makes data on the RAM smaller, and Virtual RAM, which turns phone storage into RAM so your phone can have more physical RAM to work with.  

    Price and Availability
    The OnePlus 9R 5G will be available in Carbon Black and Lake Blue at INR 39,999 (8 + 128GB) and INR 43,999 (12+ 256GB). It will be available for purchase tomorrow for OnePlus Red Cable Club members on oneplus.in and the OnePlus Store app and for Amazon Prime members on amazon.in. Open sales begin the day after across all channels. For more information, please visit OnePlus.in/9R.

    Just another sad day on the forums, however we can win a OnePlus Nord LE though. :D

    I thought this thread would be a runner, guess everybody is over on Instagram.

    It would have been great if Hasselblad Camera tweaking was implemented for this device as well. 9R feels like OnePlus 8T with improved processor and charging at lower price.

    I feel OnePlus 9R to be the best of phone from OnePlus.
    Perfect pricing and specs. I just hope OnePlus keeps bringing one phone under ₹40,000 every year.

    Both the OnePlus 9R and 8T claim to come with the Warp Charge 65 charger, but they are not the same models. The OnePlus 8T comes with WC065A21GB in India, while the OnePlus 9R comes with WC065B22GB.

    The difference is that while both can send 65W of power to a compatible OnePlus device, the OnePlus 8T charger can also send up to 45W to a USB-Power Delivery (PD) and Programmable Power Supply (PPS) compatible devices.

    On the other hand, the OnePlus 9R charger will fall back to standard 10W charging when connected to a non-OnePlus device. It also has a standard USB-A port, unlike the USB-C port on the 8T charger, which is necessary to support USB PD. This doesn't change anything for charging the OnePlus 9R itself. Still, if you also intend to use the charger for other devices around you, especially USB PD devices, then the OnePlus 9R charger isn't going to be anywhere as good as the OnePlus 8T's charger.
