Today, i have with me the brand new oneplus 9r and we’re gon na unbox it and get a first look now. This phone has been launched exclusively in india so far and that’s, because the oneplus 9 and the oneplus 9 pro have both risen in price, leaving a gap in the market. Now oneplus still promises that this phone, the oneplus 9r, delivers the same flagship level, design and gaming, great performance, it’s priced at ‘.999, rupees with 8 gb of ram and 128gb of storage or 43 999 rupees with 12 gb of ram and 256 gb of storage. So let’s check out what’s different and whether you’re finally gon na have to settle or not let’s get started. Okay, so now it is time to check out the oneplus 9r and the box that it comes in. So here we see it is bright red and rather large, in keeping with the company’s current design style there’s, really not a lot except for very minimalist branding. Here we see 5g appended to the name and a few basic details on the back. So all that’s left to do now is to pop open the box. So as we lift the lid off, some more branding becomes visible, and this is the phone itself right on top. The version that we have is called lake blue, which is a very pale blue, color i’m, going to put that down and just look at what else there is in the box.
So this compartment seems to have some stuff in it. A simple plastic case with the company’s slogan on it: a bunch of stickers if you’re a fan of the brand Music, some paperwork, the sim eject, pin. This seems to be something that can be open and it’s a message from the ceo of oneplus. And here we have card to promote the company’s loyalty club. Here we have a very familiar looking charger, except that this one supports 65 watt charging and, of course, the company’s signature red cable. So there appears to be nothing else in the box. We can put all of this aside and focus on the phone itself so now i’m gon na peel off this final plastic protective layer – and here is the oneplus 9r for the first time in lake blue. The other color option is called carbon black and it has a slightly different texture. This is completely smooth and very glossy, except for the metallic finish of this protruding camera module, so let’s power that on and let’s just take a little look around this phone, while we’re waiting for it to come on. So, of course, we have the cameras on the back now: there’s, a 48 megapixel primary camera and a 16 megapixel wide angle, camera along with a 5 megapixel macro camera and a much simpler, 2 megapixel black and white filter camera, so that’s quite a bit less elaborate Than the oneplus 9 and the oneplus 9 pro on this side, we have the standard alert slider, which lets you switch between sound profiles.
This is a simple power and standby button and the volume buttons are on the other side. The top only has a secondary microphone and on the bottom we have the usb type c port. One of the two stereo speakers and a tray let’s just have a look at this tray, and what we can see here is that there’s a slot for a nano sim on either side. So this is a dual sim phone, with no micro sd expansion, which is pretty typical for one plus, and you can see this red rubber gasket around the edge which should help with waterproofing. So now let’s quickly run through the setup process Music. So you can choose between gestures and standard on screen buttons during the setup process itself and you’ll be taken through a quick tutorial. If you choose gestures – and that appears to be it we’re ready to go so here we have oneplus is oxygen os, which is also one of the hallmarks of the brand, and now we can talk a bit more about the specifications of this phone. So, on the front, we have a 6.55 inch full hd plus fluid ammo led screen. This has a 120 hertz maximum refresh rate and a 240hz touch sampling rate for the processor. Oneplus has gone with qualcomm snapdragon 870, which is not quite as powerful as the current flagship snapdragon 888, but should be more than powerful enough for most people and whatever games.
You want to run and oneplus also says it has used a pretty elaborate cooling system with multiple temperature sensors. So there are stereo speakers uh at the bottom and the top you get either 8gb or 12gb of ram and either 128 or 256gb of ufs, 3.1 storage. There’S 65 watt fast charging, as we saw with the bundled charger. So that was a quick first look at the new oneplus 9r. Our full review is coming up soon, but till then.
