This year OnePlus is launching three smartphones in their lineup. OnePlus 9 Pro the top tier flagship smartphone, then there is the OnePlus 9 with the same specification but slightly toned down, this year they might also launch OnePlus 9R a budget-friendly flagship killer smartphone. Not to mention OnePlus is also all set to unveil its very first smartwatch. So there are plenty of things to be announced in today’s OnePlus 9 series launch event. We have some information about the specifications and design of the Oneplus 9 series and they look really impressive here is a go through of everything we know so far about the OnePlus 9 series.
OnePlus 9 Pro
The OnePlus 9 Pro will be the company’s top tier high-end bleeding edge technology phone. They have also partnered with the very well-known Hasselblad for better photography and to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S21 series and iPhone 12 Pro. Coming to the specifications of the phone, the phone will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G SoC and will have 8 or 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM. The phone will be featuring 128 Gb or 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
It has a 6.7-inch curved QHD+ resolution display with LTPO technology which means the display will have a variable refresh rate between 1hz to 120hz depending on the content shown on the screen. It also has a 10-bit colour instead of the regular 8-bit. This display can go all the way up to 1300 nits of peak brightness and it also has 360hz of touch sampling. As per the leaks, OnePlus is using Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for protection but we highly doubt that, as it should be having either Gorilla Glass 6 or Gorilla Glass Victus.
The phone is 8.7mm thick and weighs around 197g. It has the same 4500 mAh battery with 65w of fast charging support. The phone also supports 50w of fast wireless charging which the company claims to full charge the OnePlus 9 Pro within 45 minutes. the phone has Wifi 6 Bluetooth 5.2 and NFC for connectivity. The OnePlus 9 Pro is also expected to come with IP68 dust and water resistance.
The camera of the OnePlus 9 Pro is something from which everyone is expecting very much, as the company has hyped up a lot and the partnership with Hasselblad. it will be featuring a quad-camera setup at the back featuring a 48 MP IMX 789 main sensor followed by a 50 MP Ultrawide an 8 MP 3.3x telephoto lens and then at the end a 2MP monochrome camera. The phone is expected to have three colours- Forest green, Morning Mist and Stellar Black. We can’t comment anything on the pricing yet, for that you have to wait and watch the live stream which is pinned below.
This will be similar to last year’s OnePlus 8 packing similar specifications but losing out some features to bring the price down. OnePlus 9 will also be powered by the same Snapdragon 888 SoC coupled with 8 or 12 GB of RAM and with storage options as 128 or 256 GB. The phone will have a 6.55 inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 120 Hz of refresh rate with HDR10+ support. The phone will be having a 4500 mAh of battery with similar 65w fast charging support. There is no confirmation about the wireless charging on OnePlus 9 as of now.
The OnePlus 9 has a 48 MP IMX 689 as the main sensor which is then followed by a 50 MP Ultrawide lens same as the Pro one, then at the end, it has a 2 MP Monochrome camera, this one misses out the telephoto lens. For connectivity, it has WIFI 6 and Bluetooth 5.2. The phone will be launching in three different colours – Arctic Sky, Astral Black and WInter mist.
One of the most anticipating product by OnePlus is finally launching. the fans of onePlus have been waiting for a long time for an OnePlus Smartwatch.
