If so far we had only seen some renders of the OnePlus 9, the first real images of the next term of the Chinese company have just been leaked, as well as several of its specifications, some of which not only do not confirm what was expected but also They add more meat to the grill.
This is what they say on Phone Arena, where they say they have received the information from a source with all the credibility. And if, on the one hand, the design of the phone confirms what had already been seen, on the other, its specifications increase in some sections, such as the processor. We emphasize, however, that we are talking about the OnePlus 9 5G and not the OnePlus 9 Pro, but it is very possible that certain changes that are seen in the first are also reflected in the second.
Thus, the curved screen design, which is usually somewhat more expensive to produce, but is certainly more elegant, will be reserved for the OnePlus 9 Pro. What both will share is the set of vertical cameras based on sensors of different sizes, although technical data on their capabilities is not offered. The last thing that was said about it pointed to the traditional trio of lenses of 64, 16, and 8 megapixels respectively, although from Phone Arena they lower the quantities a bit, not the qualities.
As for the screen and the size of the device itself, the OnePlus 9 5G will have a 6.55-inch panel, which was already known, as well as a Full-HD + resolution (2,400 x 1,080 pixels) and a Rare aspect of 20: 9. The 120Hz refresh rate and support for playing HDR content are also confirmed.
Moving on to the specifications, the most striking is the incorporation of the Snapdragon 888 processor and not the Snapdragon 875 that was predicted. It is not detailed if the update refers only to the 5G version, but it does not seem likely. Be that as it may, the rest of the components include 8 GB of RAM and internal storage space of 128 GB without the option of expansion via microSD cards. Gobern everything will be Android 11 and OxygenOS.
Regarding the capacity of the autonomy of the terminal, nothing is mentioned either, but according to the previous information, we would be facing a 5,000 mAh battery with a wireless charging system and Warp Charge 65 fast charging, capable of recharging a full day of use in just 15 minutes.
It is expected that both the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro advance their launch for next March with the intention of competing with the Samsung Galaxy S21. We’ll see.
