OnePlus has no plans to launch another flagship phone this year. Instead, Shenzhen tech firm will launch an entry-level flagship smartphone called OnePlus 9 RT. Now a new OnePlus smartphone with model number MT2110, which is said to be the OnePlus 9 RT, has recently surfaced on the Geekbench site, hinting that the official launch could happen very soon.
The Geekbench listing also reveals few more details about the smartphone. According to the benchmark site, the upcoming OnePlus 9 RT will be based on Snapdragon 888 chip and not Snapdragon 870. The listing also says it’ll have 12GB of RAM, though it’s not clear whether the handset will be available in more than one RAM variant.
Talking about the benchmark scores, the OnePlus 9 RT manages a single-core score of 818 and a multi-core score of 3246 on Geekbench 5.
Besides Geekbench, the OnePlus 9 RT also visited China’s 3C certification site and passed India’s BIS certification. And now that the smartphone is also listed on the Geekbench site, it can be assumed that the OnePlus 9 RT might launch as early as this month. However, OnePlus has so far remained tight-lipped about the launch of its upcoming entry-level flagship phone.
