OnePlus 9R, the cheapest OnePlus you can’t buy

Leaks in recent weeks have taught us that OnePlus would present 3 high-end devices. The company presented only two terminals yesterday in all markets except one, India. In this country he presented 3 devices, one of them being the OnePlus 9R who had leaked. This is the terminal OnePlus upscale cheaper of the moment and there is bad news for you: you will not be able to buy it. It is a device exclusive for the Indian market and it looks like it won’t go beyond its borders. Of course, we already know everything about him.

The OnePlus 9R is trimmed to become a “cheap” top of the range

OnePlus 9R

The company has removed much of the functionality of the OnePlus 9 in order to launch a cheaper device in India. It is an emerging country whose economy does not allow, in most cases, to buy high-end mobiles. That’s why some companies are pushing user motivation a bit by releasing cheaper devices.

New OnePlus 9R cut out anything you can imagine: layout, camera, screen, processor and memories. Despite a design very similar to the OnePlus 9, This new device is not made of glass, but of plastic. The screen is still flat and very similar to that of the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 8T.

Almost everything changes in this device to lower the level of the OnePlus 9 a little and be able to lower the final price. It is a high-end terminal, but with characteristics extremely similar to the OnePlus 8T. The processor is pretty much the same, there is just a name change and a small (negligible for the user) difference in raw performance.

The camera has the same specs we saw months ago in the OnePlus 8T, as well as the display or memories. You can say that this OnePlus 9R is a OnePlus 8T with a little performance boost and a facelift at the rear.

OnePlus 9R price

The terminal was presented in India and has no place in other international markets. OnePlus Spain only presented the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro, like the rest of the markets in Europe, the United States or Asia. The price is set in Indian rupees and converted to euros / dollars, so it will be slightly lower than what this device would cost in Europe.

  • OnePlus 9R 8 + 128 GB: 39,999 rupees – 465 euros – 550 dollars
  • OnePlus 9R 12 + 256 GB: 43,999 rupees – 512 euros – 605 dollars

These are lower prices than those set for the rest of the devices in the OnePlus 9 Series, although you should not take this into account too much, as the device cannot be purchased outside of India. This is not bad news at all. If you buy a OnePlus 8T right now, you’ll have virtually the same spec sheet and a very similar price.
