New renders of the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro have surfaced online yet again, giving us a glimpse of the upcoming successors to the OnePlus 8 series. There are several reports hinting at the possibility of an early launch of the OnePlus 9 series in March 2021. The OnePlus 8T was launched on October 14 but rumours and speculations around OnePlus 9 are starting to take shape now.
According to a report by LetsGoDigital in collaboration with Concept Creator that reveals the new renders of the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro, we can see the two phones carry forward the rectangular camera module that debuted on the 8T. The curves on the side are seemingly more pronounced in the new renders while the OnePlus 9 is said to feature a flat-screen like the 8T.
Recently, popular tipster OnLeaks posted the CAD renders of the alleged OnePlus 9 Pro that gave us a glimpse of the Pro variant in the OnePlus 9 series. However, shortly afterwards, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau sent out a tweet stating that “No design is ever set in stone. Because if it were, it wouldn't be a very lightweight smartphone.”
The phone is expected to feature a quad-camera setup as has been indicated by the renders. The OnePlus 9 is also expected to feature a bigger display than the OnePlus 8T that could have 120Hz refresh rate.
The OnePlus 9 is likely to come powered by the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 processor and could also bring 65W fast charging along with the flat-display. Qualcomm will announce its latest flagship processor at an event on December 1.
Another report has allegedly revealed the camera details of the OnePlus 9 and the phone is expected to have a triple camera setup on the back. The OnePlus 9 is rumoured to have a 48MP primary camera with a 48MP ultra-wide-angle camera and a macro or monochrome sensor. As for the OnePlus 9 Pro, it is expected to feature a quad-camera setup on the back with both phones supporting 120Hz refresh rates.
OnePlus 9 is expected to feature a 6.55-inch display while the OnePlus 9 Pro is rumoured to come with a 6.7-inch screen. Moreover, there are rumours that the screen supports 120Hz refresh rate and not 144Hz as was speculated previously.
OnePlus 9 series is rumoured to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 processor that’s due out in December. The leak indicates that the upcoming phones in the series could have IP68 certification, NFC and dual stereo speakers. The company could also provide the same 65W fast charging that it debuted with the OnePlus 8T in October along with support for 40W fast wireless charging.
