While the OnePlus T-series won’t get a device this year, OnePlus has launched the OnePlus 9RT — the successor to the OnePlus 9R it revealed earlier this year. Notably, the U.S. market won’t get these devices, with only the OnePlus 9 Pro being available to U.S. users, while other markets have access to the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus Nord 2.
