OnePlus 9R

OnePlus is all set to launch its latest flagship smartphones, the OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro, and the OnePlus 9R 5G on March 23 in India and other markets. The Chinese smartphone maker had been teasing several aspects of these devices from the last few days. These devices even had also gained the required BIS and 3C certification a few weeks ago. In the latest development, OnePlus even confirmed that the OnePlus 9 series will pack a 4500mAh battery, and will offer 50W wireless charging support. Now, OnePlus India’s official Twitter account has posted a new teaser regarding the OnePlus 9R 5G, which suggest us that the device could be a gaming phone.

OnePlus 9R 5G To Launch with Gaming Triggers

The teaser revealed by OnePlus India’s official Twitter handle discloses that the OnePlus 9R 5G will include a gaming trigger, which no doubt will enhance the gaming experience. The gaming trigger accessory might be sold by OnePlus separately which could work on all the OnePlus 9 series phones. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau while speaking with News18 even had confirmed that the OnePlus 9R will be a gaming phone that will offer features such as smooth scrolling, immersive gaming controls and more display tweaks.

Additionally, the Tweet posted by @thebookisclosed does give us a glimpse of the OnePlus 9R 5G with a gaming trigger. It is even being reported that the flagship OnePlus 9 Pro model even will come with a gaming trigger. Now, that OnePlus India has pretty much confirmed the existence of a gaming trigger for at least the OnePlus 9R 5G, we can expect this device to compete with the likes of ASUS ROG Phone 5, the upcoming Black Shark 4 Pro, and other gaming handsets.

While speaking with News18 a few days ago, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau had officially confirmed the existence of the OnePlus 9R smartphone for the first time. He even had revealed that the OnePlus 9R 5G will launch as the more affordable device among the OnePlus 9 series, which will deliver a flagship experience. Pete Lau even confirmed that the OnePlus 9R will launch in India as well alongside OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro, which will provide a robust flagship experience at a more accessible price point. He also had mentioned that 5G connectivity will offer improved speed, better latency, and increase capacity to facilitate cloud gaming.



As far as the specs of the OnePlus 9R such as display size, camera configuration, and other details go, they do remain unknown as of now. However, we can expect the phone to be powered by Qualcomm’s SoC which shall offer 5G connectivity support.  Moving on to the OnePlus 9R pricing, the exact details regarding this even isn’t available as of now. The company had announced its affordable OnePlus Nord smartphone at a starting price point of Rs 27,000 a few months back. If we go by this logic, we can simply expect the OnePlus 9R even to launch at around the same price point. This is just our guess at the moment, and we suggest you to wait for the official launch of the OnePlus 9R 5G to know more about its pricing.
