According to a tip, the OnePlus 9T 5G with ‘ColorOS 11 Global’ will be released in the third quarter of 2021. The tipster goes on to say that the smartphone will have a Hasselblad quad rear camera setup, highlighted by a 108-megapixel primary sensor. The announcement comes just a few days after OnePlus announced the merger of its OxygenOS and Oppo’s ColorOS “to improve efficiency and standardize the software experience” across devices. Last month, some display specifications for the rumored smartphone were leaked on the Internet.
According to a Twitter tip, the OnePlus 9T 5G will be released with “ColorOS 11 Global” and a 108-megapixel Hasselblad quad rear camera setup. In comparison, the 48-megapixel triple rear cameras on the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro were designed in collaboration with Hasselblad. OnePlus typically releases a T-variant of its flagship phones six months after the release of the flagship series. The Chinese company released the OnePlus 8T in October, following the release of the OnePlus 8 series in April. In March of this year, the company launched the OnePlus 9 series. There is no word on whether a OnePlus 9T Pro model will be released.
The tipster’s claim that the OnePlus 9T will run “ColorOS 11 Global” could be a reference to OnePlus and Oppo’s announcement last week about the merger of OxygenOS and ColorOS. The modifications are said to be made at the codebase level. According to the company, OxygenOS will continue to be the operating system for global OnePlus users, but it will now be built on a “more stable and stronger platform.” On the operational front, the move follows OnePlus’ formal merger with Oppo. According to previous leaks, the OnePlus 9T will have a Samsung LTPO OLED display with a variable refresh rate of 120Hz.
