OnePlus flagship smartphones are generally a worthy alternative to other flagships, but in terms of the camera, they cannot compete on equal terms with the flagships of Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi and Apple. It seems that the company has finally realized that OnePlus cameras should be better, and this direction will finally become a priority.
OnePlus will strengthen R&D in the field of cameras, said the head of the company Pete Lau (Pete Lau) on the social network Weibo. No more specifics, but there is no doubt that the company will throw additional resources for this, both monetary and human. According to the latest rumors, OnePlus will not be improving its cameras alone, but in collaboration with Leica. It has been fruitfully working in this direction with Huawei for a long time.
Since the decision to radically improve smartphone cameras has been made only now, it is not necessary to say that OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro will shoot much better than their predecessors, because there are only three months left before the release of new flagships. So we may see completely new cameras in the OnePlus 9T in the fall.
OnePlus 9 Pro will support 45-watt wireless charging
Over the years, OnePlus has gradually added flagship features to its smartphones. Last year, the manufacturer finally added wireless charging to the OnePlus 8 Pro.
Last year’s OnePlus 8 Pro supports 30W wireless charging. In 2021, the company will take it to the next level with the introduction of wireless charging in the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro, while the Pro model will support wireless charging at up to 45W.
The OnePlus 9 Pro will require a new proprietary wireless charger that will allow it to charge at maximum power. In addition, the smartphone will also support reverse wireless charging. It’s unclear how much wireless charging power the standard OnePlus 9 model will support.
OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro should be presented in March-April this year.
OnePlus 9 Expected Features
In other aspects, according to the previous news, the new OnePlus 9 series will include at least two versions; OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro. The OnePlus 9 will use a straight-face single-punch design on the front, while the OnePlus 9 Pro will be designed with a curved single-hole-punch screen. It will also have a built-in fingerprint sensor under the screen. Of course, we are dealing with a top-notch model powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 flagship chip.
We should also point out that the front is identical to the OnePlus 8 Pro. But we still don’t know whether it will come with a 16MP or a Sony 32MP camera. The back should carry a camera module, consisting of the 48MP Sony IMX689 sensor. There should also be an ultra-wide-angle lens and macro lens. In addition, OnePlus 9 Pro will also support 65W flash charging and 40W wireless charging, dual stereo speakers, and IP68 dust and water resistance.
