After much anticipation and rumors, the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro were launched at a virtual event on Tuesday. The new OnePlus flagship series comes with cameras embedded by the Swedish brand Hasselblad and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 888.
OnePlus 9 is an official upgrade to OnePlus 8T, while the OnePlus 9 Pro comes as a successor to the OnePlus 8 Pro. OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro both come with 120Hz displays. However, the Pro variant offers dynamic refresh rates through its Smart 120Hz feature — thanks to the LTPO display.
In Addition to the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro, the OnePlus also brought OnePlus 9R to deliver an affordable yet flagship-like experience. The Chinese company also launched the much-awaited OnePlus Watch, marked by a circular design and Warp Charge fast charging support.
Let’s cover the phones in detail.
The newly launched OnePlus 9 runs on Android 11 with Oxygen OS 11 on top. It has a 6.55- inch full-HD+ (1,080×2,400 pixels) Fluid AMOLED display with 20:9 aspect ratio and 120Hz refresh rate. The display featured is the same as OnePlus 8T last year and is protected by a 3D Corning Gorilla Glass.
OnePlus 9 is powered by the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC, 8GB, and 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM. There is also a multi-layered cooling system called the OnePlus Cool Play.
There is a triple rear camera setup for photography that houses a 48-megapixel Sony IMX689 primary sensor, with an f/1.8 lens and electronic image stabilization (EIS). The camera also includes a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 secondary sensor with an ultra-wide-angle f/2.2 Freeform lens and a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor.
For selfies and video chats, the OnePlus 9 has a 16-megapixel Sony IMX471 selfie camera at the front, with an f/2.4 lens.
Storage & charging
OnePlus 9 has an internal storage of 128GB and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage that doesn’t support expansion through a microSD card. Connectivity options include 5G, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS/ A-GPS, NFC, and OnePlus 9 also comes with a USB Type-C port.
The phone also comes with numerous sensors that comprise an accelerometer, a dual ambient light sensor, a gyroscope, and a proximity sensor. There is also an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Talking about the battery life of the OnePlus 9, it packs a 4,500mAh battery that supports Warp Charge 65T, fast charging. The North American and European versions of the OnePlus 9 also comes with 15W Qi wireless charging.
OnePlus 9 Pro
OnePlus 9 Pro also runs on OxygenOS 11. It comes with a 6.7-inch QHD+ (1,440×3,216 pixels) Fluid Display 2.0 AMOLED display. The display is combined with low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) technology that enables the Smart 120Hz feature.
This is so beneficial to reduce power consumption by up to 50 percent by automatically matching the refresh rate to the current user scenario — from 1Hz for viewing photos and reading text to 24Hz for watching movies and as high as 120Hz for smooth scrolling.
What makes it pro?
In Addition to the Smart 120Hz feature, the OnePlus 9 Pro has Hyper Touch support that increases the touch-responsive rate to 360Hz when you play mobile games. The proprietary feature currently supports popular games such as PUBG Mobile, Call of Duty Mobile, League of Legends, and Brawl Stars.
Gamers on OnePlus 9 Pro can also leverage the OnePlus Cool Play built on the heat dissipation design available on OnePlus 8T, along with a larger vapor chamber, thicker graphite sheets, and a larger copper foil over last year’s model.
The phone comes with an additional 8-megapixel telephoto shooter. The phone also includes a 16-megapixel sensor at the front, with an f/2.4 lens and EIS support.
OnePlus 9 Pro also comes with a 50W wireless fast charging. You’ll also get an IP68-certified body for dust and water resistance
You will also get an in-display fingerprint sensor on both phones.
