OnePlus 9 Pro Overview
Everything on the smartphone is a flagship, with the most exciting part being its camera. OnePlus is coming with Hasselblad (a reputed photography company), spending USD 150 million on developing mobile photography. The flagship camera of the OnePlus 9 Pro is currently the talk of the tech town. OnePlus 9 Pro is the successor to last year’s OnePlus 8 Pro.
Design and Build Quality
The smartphone has a glass front and back with an aluminum frame. The display is 6.7- inches LTPO Fluid2 AMOLED with a 120Hz refresh rate, displaying over 1 billion colors like the Oppo Find X3 Pro. LTPO display is power efficient as compared to the other display.
OnePlus also claims that the display can adjust automatically between 1Hz and 120Hz depending on the screen’s content. It also has the property of Always-on-display.
The smartphone’s resolution is 1440 x 3216 pixels, and it also has Corning Gorilla Glass protection. It has IP68 dust and water resistance, letting the phone survive up to 30 minutes in a 1.5meter depth of water.
The curved screen houses a selfie camera in a punch-hole at the top left corner. The quad-camera on the back sits on a rectangular module, which has a Hasselblad branding.
On the rear side, it has a mirror finish on the bottom, while the upper body has a matte finish. Following this, the base has a USB Type-C port, SIM card tray, and a speaker grille.
It has a noise-canceling microphone on the top. Similarly, the volume rocker is on the left side, whereas the right side has an alert slider and power button.
It has an under-display fingerprint sensor. OnePlus 9 Pro is available in three color variants: Morning Mist, Pine Green, and Stellar Black. Similarly, the phone weighs 197 grams.
OnePlus claims the smartphone to have a ‘Fast and Smooth’ experience. It has 5G with the most powerful Snapdragon platform – Snapdragon 888 of 5 nm, clocking up to 2.84 GHz.
The gaming in OnePlus is next-level with a 120Hz Fluid Display and the power of Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. Adreno 660 handles the graphics of the smartphone.
The “Cool Play” technique of OnePlus helps to keep the temperature in check. OnePlus claims the technology can keep the smartphone up to a couple of degrees cooler compared to the other flagship device – Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, after the gaming of 20 minutes.
OnePlus runs Android 11 based on OxygenOS 11.
With a three-year partnership with Hasselblad, OnePlus believes the new series to have a significant leap in terms of their camera.
OnePlus 9 Pro has a quad-camera setup amazingly placed on a rectangular module. The cameras are a 48 MP Sony IMX789 primary lens with an f/1.8 aperture, an ultra-wide lens of 50 MP Sony IMX766 with f/2.2, an 8 MP telephoto lens, and a 2 MP monochrome lens.
The rear camera can capture up to 8K resolution of footage with 30fps.
The front camera has a 16 MP lens of f/2.4. It can record video of 1080p at 30fps.
A large battery of 4,500 mAh fuels the smartphone. The warp speed charging technology fills the power for a single day in 15 minutes while filling the full charge in 29 minutes.
Likewise, a wireless warp charge of 50W is the fastest ever wireless charging from the brand. It charges from 1-70% in 30 minutes.
