OnePlus 9RT smartphone and OnePlus Buds Z2 true wireless stereo (TWS) earphones will be launched in India soon. The company confirmed the arrival of the two devices in India via two separate tweets encrypted with Morse code. The OnePlus 9RT, which could be called the OnePlus RT in India, made its debut in China last year. OnePlus Buds Z2 have also been launched in China and other global markets. Meanwhile, the rumor mill suggests that OnePlus may discontinue OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9R and OnePlus 8T smartphones after OnePlus 9RT hits the market.
OnePlus India posted two tweets containing cryptic messages in Morse code. The decoding suggests official confirmation that the OnePlus 9RT and OnePlus Buds Z2 will be launched in India.

Further, there is no information about the debut of these products. Back in December, the support pages for OnePlus 9RT and OnePlus Buds Z2 India were spotted on the company’s website.
