OnePlus 9 series is now confirmed to feature a 50MP ultra-wide-angle camera that is based on a Sony IMX766 sensor. The OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro and OnePlus 9 Lite / 9R / 9E are expected to launch on March 23 in India. OnePlus has started teasing the key features of its upcoming flagship range in the run-up to the launch. The company recently announced that it has collaborated with Swedish camera-maker Hasselblad to develop the cameras on the upcoming OnePlus 9 series.

OnePlus has officially revealed, via Tweets and a video, that the OnePlus 9 series features a 50MP ultra-wide-angle camera that is based on a Sony IMX766 sensor. This corroborates with earlier leaks that hinted at the camera details of the OnePlus 9 Pro. Additionally, OnePlus released a video featuring Hasselblad ambassador Lars Schneider as he traverses snow-clad mountains to create an ultra-wide picture from the OnePlus 9 series.

OnePlus has previously revealed that it has worked on a new panoramic camera that offers a 140-degree field-of-view for the OnePlus 9 series. The sensor uses a free-form lens that lowers edge distortion to one per cent than the usual 10-20% levels. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has also tweeted a camera sample that shows the difference between a traditional ultra-wide-angle camera and the one on the upcoming OnePlus 9 series without any edge distortions.

Furthermore, the company has also confirmed that the OnePlus 9 series features a custom Sony IMX789 sensor that brings in 12-bit RAW, 4K UHD recording at 120FPS and more. OnePlus is expected to reveal more details about the OnePlus 9 series as we near the launch date.

OnePlus 9 series leaked specifications

OnePlus 9 could feature a 6.55-inch Full HD + display as per the leaks, while the OnePlus 9 Pro is said to feature a slightly larger 6.7-inch QHD + screen. The OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro will likely opt for a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera and support a 120Hz refresh rate. As for the OnePlus 9R, it is rumoured to feature a 6.5-inch Full HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate.

The OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro will likely be powered by the Snapdragon 888 processor while the OnePlus 9R is rumoured to launch with Snapdragon 690 processor under the hood.

OnePlus 9 Pro is expected to feature a quad-camera setup on the back headlined by a 48MP primary camera, a 50MP secondary camera, an 8MP camera and a 2MP camera with OIS support. The OnePlus 9 will likely have triple cameras on the back while the OnePlus 9R could have a 64MP primary camera followed by an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera.

The OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro are also likely to be equipped with a 4,500mAh battery that supports 65W fast charging out-of-the-box which debuted with the OnePlus 8T in October. Meanwhile, the OnePlus 9R is expected to have a slightly larger 5,000mAh battery with fast-charging support out-of-the-box.
