Since its introduction in the Indian market, the OnePlus 9RT 5G has quickly become a popular choice for people looking for a new phone in the premium mid-range price segment. This development has hardly been surprising as the phone comes with powerful hardware, premium design, excellent cameras, and so much more. While the phone delivers on all fronts, one department where OnePlus 9RT 5G particularly excels is gaming. As the mobile gaming market in India has grown substantially over the last few years, the demand for a gaming phone from users is at an all-time high. And OnePlus has delivered the perfect gift in the form of the OnePlus 9RT 5G. This phone doesn’t just meet the expectations of hardcore mobile gamers but exceeds them to set a new benchmark. Let’s dive right into the gaming-centric features that help OnePlus 9RT 5G deliver an unparalleled gaming experience.
OnePlus 9RT 5G is powered by the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset. This chipset is built using a 5nm fabrication resulting in powerful performance and superior battery life. Complementing the powerful SoC are 12GB of LPDDR5 memory and UFS3.1 high-speed flash memory. Qualcomm’s powerful chipset features raw horsepower for days, and more importantly, it comes with software features that take the gaming experience to a whole new level.
Snapdragon 888 chipset brings Snapdragon Elite Gaming features that offer a unique gaming experience that you won’t find with other chipsets in this price range. These features include variable-rate shading for faster graphics performance and Qualcomm Game Quick Touch for improved display responsiveness. Both these features together ensure that you don’t have to face any lag or input delay while playing competitive games online.
One of the features that make the OnePlus 9RT 5G an excellent gaming smartphone is Hyper Touch 2.0. This feature essentially unlocks the potential of the 300Hz response rate IC hardware and doubles it to an industry-leading 600Hz. With the response rate at 600Hz, the lowest touch delay on the OnePlus 9RT 5G comes down to 29ms (from 36ms) to provide for a responsive and fluid gaming experience that you will not find in other phones in its price range.
If you like to play first-person shooter games on your phone (like most of us do!), you would be able to tell a clear difference and improvement in terms of responsiveness while gaming on the OnePlus 9RT 5G.
Over the last few years, both consumers and brands have become more aware of the importance and usefulness of good haptics on phones. With its 4D Intelligent Haptic Immersion, OnePlus has set a new benchmark in this price segment. Thanks to powerful visual and audio recognition algorithms and over 150 unique haptic feedback types, the OnePlus 9RT 5G offers an immersive and unparalleled gaming experience.
This means that firing weapons and setting off bombs in select AAA game titles will now feel more immersive than ever before. With this advanced haptics, the OnePlus 9RT 5G manages to deliver a unique experience that will be impossible for you to find anywhere else.
Have you ever experienced network issues while gaming that eventually got you kicked out of an online game? Your answer will most likely be yes. These situations can be frustrating and ruin an entire gaming session for you. As most online games now have competitive gaming modes with a progression system, such losses due to network issues can waste hours of your efforts. To tackle this issue, the OnePlus 9RT 5G comes with Tri-eSport Wi-Fi Antenna System that features an additional “performance-enhancing” antenna that aims at improving stability, boosting speed, and maximising reception on your phone.
While most other similar phones feature the conventional dual Wi-Fi antenna setup, the presence of this additional antenna allows the OnePlus 9RT 5G to offer improved Wi-Fi connection stability and network speeds. As this tri-antenna system is capable of engaging in intelligent network switches to maximise reception while gaming and calling, you will not have to deal with the frustration of losing network signal unexpectedly.
One of the primary concerns that have plagued even premium flagship phones in the past is overheating. Most manufacturers have struggled to strike the right balance between offering maximum performance and keeping the device temperature under control. However, the OnePlus 9RT 5G is built different. The phone comes with evenly distributed heat dissipation routes, internal mechanical stacking, and an express heat dissipation channel, placed next to key heat sources, such as the SoC module and battery PCB, to support efficiency.
Effectively, this results in a phone that remains cool even when it offers blazing-fast performance. The OnePlus 9RT 5G has even set a new record for thermal efficiency offered by OnePlus phones. The phone offers a 20 percent more efficient heat dissipation mechanism compared to the previous OnePlus 9 series handsets. As the phone remains cool while offering solid performance, it is perfect for long-gaming sessions that often prove to be the Achilles’ heel for other phones.
Fast charging speeds are essential for any gamer as nobody wants to spend hours charging the phone after and before every gaming session. Warp Charge 65T, the advanced charging solution offered by the OnePlus 9RT 5G, makes sure that you don’t have to miss out on a gaming session with friends just because your phone is low on battery. Thanks to this fast-charging technology, the OnePlus 9RT 5G can be charged from one to 100 percent in just 29 minutes.
If you even have less time, the phone charges from one to 65 percent in just 15 minutes. As the phone ships with a big 4,500mAh battery, it manages to offer a solid battery backup that will easily last a day with regular use. The company has also included a built-in hardware safety protection mechanism that consists of 12 thermal sensors and independent IC chips to ensure charging safety and battery health even when charging on a full battery.
OnePlus 9RT 5G packs a 6.62-inch E4 OLED flat display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The importance of a high refresh rate display cannot be stressed enough when it comes to gaming. The high refresh rate display allows you to see more frames per second. As multiplayer first-person shooters and battle royale games need you to be precise and accurate, and the difference between winning and losing in these games can be split-second decisions, this helps immensely.
OnePlus 9RT 5G features one of the best flat displays in the market. It emits less blue light, consumes less power, and features subpixel rendering technology that provides a sharper and more refined display of UI textures. As this is your window into the gaming world, OnePlus has ensured it is a great one.
With a plethora of features that contribute to an enjoyable gaming experience, the OnePlus 9RT 5G is an excellent phone for gamers. Whether it is display, battery life, charging speed, or signal reception, the phone tackles every challenge with ease and allows gamers to focus just on gaming.
With a starting price of Rs 42,999, the OnePlus 9RT 5G is a no-brainer for anyone looking for a great gaming phone, and with bank offers and exchange offers, you can even get the phone for as low as Rs 38,999.
