OnePlus has announced the first two phones in its OnePlus 9 series, the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro. As expected, the flagship is the OnePlus 9 Pro, designed to go against the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy S21 Ultra and the iPhone 12 Pro Max, while the OnePlus 9 is a lower-end and slightly more affordable manufacturer. . The OnePlus 9 costs $ 729 with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, while the 9 Pro costs $ 1069 with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage in the US.
OnePlus spent much of its news talking about the cameras on the new phones, which were developed in partnership with Hasselblad. OnePlus says the colors are tuned to look more natural and the ultrawide sensor on the 9 Pro and 9 is one of the greatest ever put on a smartphone. The ultrawide uses a 50 / megapixel Sony IMX766 sensor that is 1 / 1.56 ”in size with an aperture of f / 2.2. Meanwhile, the Sony IMX789’s 9 Pro main resolution has a resolution of 48 megapixels and is 1 / 1.43 ”in size (the regular 9 has a 9 IMp689 sensor but has the same resolution of 48 megapixels). On the 9 Pro, there’s also a monochrome sensor. Each phone has a 16-megapixel front-facing camera.
On the software side, OnePlus has added Hasselblad Pro Mode which provides additional control over photo settings and includes a focus peak feature. In terms of video, the 9 Pro can shoot at up to 8K at 30fps, or 4K at 120fps, and includes an enhanced Nightscape video mode for filming in low light.
As previously mentioned, the 9 Pro has a 120Hz curved display that uses LPTO technology to change the refresh rate between 1 and 120Hz based on the content being displayed on the screen, reducing power consumption with “up to 50 per cent.” OnePlus also says it should feel more sensible to use it in games that support its Hyper Touch technology. The screen has a maximum brightness of 1300 nits and supports HDR10 +. Meanwhile, the OnePlus 9 has a flat rather than curved display, but it still gets a 120Hz refresh rate.
Internally, the 9 Pro and 9 are powered by a Snapdragon 888 processor and are available with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. They support Warp Charge 65T, which OnePlus says should be able to charge the phone’s 4,500mAh battery to 100 percent in less than half an hour. The 9 Pro can also charge wirelessly at up to 50W and is designed to be able to charge wirelessly regardless of whether it is modeled in landscape or landscape, while the 9 Pro can charge wirelessly at up to 15W.
In terms of colors, the OnePlus 9 Pro is available in black, silver, and green, while the OnePlus 9 is available in black, light purple, and blue.
