A couple of days ago, OnePlus CEO Mr. Pete Lau revealed that the company will unveil the OnePlus 9R 5G on March 23 alongside the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro. OnePlus hasn’t detailed the 9R 5G yet, but its Indian branch posted an image on Twitter teasing the smartphone.
The picture includes a silhouette of the 9R 5G, and while it doesn’t reveal the phone in its entirety, you can clearly see its right side frame is home to the power button. The smartphone also appears to have two gaming triggers attached to it. That’s because OnePlus is focusing on mobile gaming with the 9R 5G.

It’s currently unclear if the attachable gaming triggers will be the only gaming accessory for the 9R 5G and whether the phone will come with any other features to further enhance the mobile gaming experience.
It also remains to be seen if these gaming triggers will be compatible with the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro or stay exclusive to the 9R 5G. But with the launch event still five days away, we might learn more about the 9R 5G before the official unveiling.
