  • OnePlus has announced a launch date for the OnePlus 9RT on October 13th.
  • The company will also launch the OnePlus Buds Z2 earbuds on the same day.
  • It’s unclear if this is just a Chinese event or a global launch day.

OnePlus confirmed earlier this year that it wouldn’t launch the OnePlus 9T series this year, but multiple leaks suggested that the OnePlus 9RT was released instead. Now the company has made it official and announced a launch date.

OnePlus and co-founder Pete Lau announced on Weibo that the OnePlus 9RT would launch on October 13 at 7:30 p.m. Beijing time (7:30 a.m. ET). Lau and the company also noted the slogan “Speed ​​has a new name”.

It sounds like this is going to be a Chinese launch event, but we have contacted the company to see if this will be a global launch. We will update the article when / when you get in touch with us. That said, the OnePlus 9R was only launched in China and India, so you might not want to hold your breath for a US or European release just yet.

The company also released a GIF showing the back of the OnePlus 9RT. This shows a phone that looks pretty much identical to the renders posted by Serial Leaker Evan Blass yesterday. We saved and embedded the GIF below.

However, this is not the only product OnePlus wants to showcase on this day. The company went to Weibo to confirm that it will also launch the OnePlus Buds Z2 true wireless earbuds that day. The Weibo post itself points out that this offers noise reduction and long battery life. We also take a look at the earbuds (shown below) which show a design that matches previous leaks.

One of these earlier leaks also points to features like Bluetooth 5.2, an IP55 rating, “active noise cancellation” and up to 38 hours of total playback with the charging case. So you can expect a pretty decent upgrade over the original Buds Z earbuds.

We’ll probably have to wait until next week to get more official details on both products, but we hope OnePlus has attractive pricing for both the OnePlus 9RT and the Buds Z2.
