OnePlus 9R Design

OnePlus 9R comes as a trimmed-down, more affordable smartphone in the OnePlus 9 series. On the surface, one can find several similarities with the OnePlus 8T. Speaking of the design, the OnePlus 9R flaunts a 6.55-inch FHD+ Fluid AMOLED 2.5D curved glass display. The smartphone includes 1080 x2400 pixel resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. One will also find a punch-hole cutout in the top-left corner, much like the OnePlus 8T.

OnePlus 9R Hardware Performance

The OnePlus 9R draws power from the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor that is coupled with Adreno 650 GPU. The chipset also offers up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB Storage (UFS 3.1) default memory capacity, without the option to expand the storage. One might find several similarities with the OnePlus 8T – however, the upgraded chipset offers an improved smartphone experience. Simply put, the OnePlus 9R can handle all your mobile tasks without a glitch, including gaming titles.

OnePlus 9R Camera Performance

Moving on, the camera on the OnePlus 9R is something to be discussed. Unlike the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro, the OnePlus 9R packs a basic 48MP Sony IMX586 primary camera sensor with EIS and OIS as part of the quad-camera setup. To note, the other OnePlus 9 smartphones pack the Hasselblad camera for one of the finest smartphone photography experiences. The OnePlus 9R also includes a 16MP Sony IMX481 secondary wide-angle lens with a 123-degree field of view, a tertiary 5MP macro lens, and a fourth 2MP monochrome lens.

OnePlus 9R Price-To-Specs Ratio

The OnePlus 9R is available in two models of 8GB+128GB and 12GB+256GB costing Rs. 39,999 and Rs. 43,999, respectively. For the asking price, the OnePlus 9R packs several upgraded features and goes against devices like the Mi 10 series, Samsung Galaxy S20, and even a few iPhone models. For the asking price, the OnePlus 9R has tough competition, especially in the camera department.

OnePlus 9R Important Features/Highlights

One of the key highlights of the OnePlus 9R is its battery of 4.500 mAh capacity with 65W Warp Charge fast charging support. The OnePlus 9R ships with a 65W fast charger bundled with the box. Also, the device includes 5G support, VC cooling, immersive haptic feedback, Pro Gaming Mode, and stereo speakers. It runs OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11 OS.

OnePlus 9R Verdict

The OnePlus 9R makes an impressive entry, no doubt. However, the smartphone fails to get the deserved attention in front of the Hasselblad camera-packed OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro. The OnePlus brand is clearly etched on the OnePlus 9R. However, if your budget permits, get the OnePlus 9 or the 9 Pro for its latest offering, including the Hasselblad cameras.

How do we rate a Device?

Rating a smartphone is a tedious process and a lot of parameters have to be considered before judging the overall performance of the device such as display, camera, processor, RAM, storage, battery, and the pricing.

So, here are how these specs will affect the real-life usage of a device and why how we meticulously consider each of these points to rate a smartphone.


Cameras have evolved a lot over the last few years and multi-camera setup is a new norm. We consider various parameters like MP count, aperture size, pixel size, image stabilization to rate a camera system of a smartphone out of 5. Any device that scores more than 3.5 can take good photos and videos and if a phone scores over 4, then it will be one of the best camera smartphones in the market.


Though battery seems like an underrated feature and we look at the battery capacity, fast charging supporting technology, and even the wireless charging capability is also taken into consideration to rate smartphone's battery capability.


The display is the face of a smartphone. And there are a lot of parameters like the panel technology (IPS LCD, OLED, TFT) and other parameters also taken into consideration like the resolution, pixel density, and refresh rate.

Value for Money

A smartphone could have great specs, but if it is not priced well then you might not get the best value-for-money. So, we compare a smartphone with the contemporaries to rate the value-for-money of a device out of 5.


This aspect is decided on various sub specifics, such as availability of microSD card slot, the amount of RAM the device offers, processor capability, and the network support. This parameter has more weightage when compared to other departments.
