OnePlus 9R First Impressions .For a company that promises its customers will never “settle” if they buy their products, OnePlus is happy to adopt the idea of reducing features and specifications to keep prices low. After offering only one smartphone at a time for years, we now have a very clear stratified lineup, with four current models and previous-gens still on sale. The OnePlus 9R is the only one launched in India so far and is a direct response to the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro price hikes. So the company has found a good balance between capabilities and costs and what does this say about the expensive 9 Series? Here is a quick first glance
Although the OnePlus promises the OnePlus 9R it is shorter than its siblings, offers the same design and still provides main-class power. IT is priced at Rs. 39,999 has 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, 12GB RAM, 256GB storage with Rs. 43,999. Available in Lake Blue, it has a soft, shiny finish, as well as a carbon black icy texture.
The front and back are made of Corning Gorilla Glass and you realize that this is a relatively premium phone. The glass is curved at the back and the corners are well rounded, making this phone very comfortable in the hand. However, my Lake Blue unit feels a bit slippery and it smoothies very easily. Weighing 189g and 8.4mm thick, this phone is very comfortable to hold and use. Don’t expect an IP rating though.
The large camera bump at the rear has a metallic texture and is slightly stretched. Interestingly, with four visible lenses, the OnePlus 9R looks even more OnePlus 9 Pro () review) than its closest sibling, the OnePlus 9 () review). The cameras are wide, but not close; You get a 48-megapixel primary camera with OIS, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide camera, a 5-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor. No Hasselblad branding anywhere.
The screen measures 6.55 inches diagonally and has a full-HD + resolution with a maximum resolution of 120Hz. No mention of HDR. In the relatively large hole in the top left corner, you get a 16-megapixel front camera and a display fingerprint sensor.
Under the hood, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870 SoC that went with the OnePlus is a step away from the current flagship Snapdragon 888, but still very high-end. This should be more than enough to handle the present day game and can give this phone an edge over the previous-gen flagship with a discount. OnePlus claims to use an extensive cooling system with multiple temperature sensors, so it remains to be seen whether the rear panel will be hot during gaming. The OnePlus 9R has the same design as the OnePlus 9 and 9Pro, especially the camera module
It has a 4500mAh battery, which seems a bit small, but we will do a thorough test of the battery upon a thorough review of the OnePlus 9R. It supports 65W fast charging and is included in the matching adapter box. No wireless charging, which is unfortunate. You get Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1 with OptiX HD, NFC, Multiple Navigation System, Haptic Vibration and Stereo Speaker. OnePlus uses UFS 3.1 for faster storage, but does not have a microSD card slot for expansion. The warning slider on the right hand side remains a unique touch to the brand, allowing you to quickly switch between sound profiles.
OnePlus continues to develop its Oxygen UI for Android 11 and is one of the biggest selling points of the brand. Crisp design, with custom navigation gestures, an always-on display, work-life balance mode, and plenty of customization options will get you a much smaller touch.
In terms of price, many fans of the OnePlus brand have found a balance they are willing to pay. The price of OnePlus 8T is currently Rs. 3,000 more for similar variants. There are some interesting options like the new I live with the X60 series, Oppo Renault 5 Series, Mi 10T Series, and Samsung’s older S-Series models. The price of the OnePlus 9R depends on its performance, camera quality, software, and ease of use, which we’ll detail in our entire review in great detail, so stay tuned for the Gadgets 360.
