OnePlus’ new flagship phones will be publicly unveiled on March 23rd at 10 a.m. ET, following a week of previews on Twitter and in the news.
Along with them, we’re expecting to learn about a low-cost alternative and a new smartwatch.
The cameras seem to be OnePlus’ main focus with the 9 and 9 Pro, with the company collaborating with iconic camera manufacturer Hasselblad.
Only testing will show whether it will help the cameras succeed or be more of a marketing gimmick, so we’ll post our reviews here once they’re accessible.
For smartphone companies, time really doesn’t stand, and OnePlus is no exception.
The company is now preparing the OnePlus 9 series following the launch of OnePlus 8 in April 2020 and OnePlus 8T in October.
The OnePlay 9 will feature a 6.5-inch display with a 120 Hz refresh rate, a new quality Snapdragon 888 chip and a new Ultrashot camera.
This spring, the Android contest will be fierce, as OnePlus 9 faces stiff competition to other smartphone brands like the Samsung Galaxy S21 line-up.
The OnePlus 9 has a rather large 6.55-inch display in the top left corner of the screen with the punch of a hole. There is also a pretty prominent camera bump on the back with three lenses and a flash.
You’ll find the USB-C port, speaker and tray for SIM cards at the bottom of the OnePlus 9. A rubber seal appears in the tray to help the resistance to water.
A 48MP camera, an ultra-wide 48MP camera and an unknown third camera are expected on this device.
The new sensor is, among others, wide enough to handle an aspect ratio of 16:11 which will better cover both pictures 4:3 and video 16:9.
The OnePlay 9 is also set to capture 12-bit, 6.87 billion color RAW images, 64 times that of most smartphones.
