OnePlus reportedly will launch a bunch of products somewhere in the next month. The Chinese smartphone maker is expected to reveal its OnePlus 9 series that will consist of three devices. We’re looking at the OnePlus 9R, 9, and 9 Pro with, of course, the 9R being the cheapest of all three. Apart from launching the new series, OnePlus will also reveal its much-awaited smartwatch dubbed OnePlus Watch. In a recent leak, we now have some key specs of the Pro version and a look at the new camera UI.
OnePlus 9 Pro key specs surface on the web in a new leak!
This leak comes courtesy of a greek publication Techmaniacs.gr. The report showcases the screenshot of the About Phone page of the smartphone. As expected, the screenshot has revealed a bunch of information regarding the internals. As you can see, the device will arrive with a flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset which we already knew. The SoC will be paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB built-in storage. OnePlus 9 Pro will not support storage expansion and in fact, the entire lineup will do so.

For optics, the device will arrive with a quad-camera module on the rear featuring a 48MP primary sensor. The lens will be accompanied by three more sensors – 50MP+8MP+2MP. The device features a 6.7-inch Fluid AMOLED display having a refresh rate of 120Hz. Sadly, there’s no information regarding the front selfie sensor. On the software front, the device makes use of the latest Android 11 out-of-the-box.
The About Phone page also showcases the front of the smartphone and it looks like the punch-hole cutout will be located on the top-left corner.
A new camera UI is in two as well!
It looks like OnePlus has also refreshed the camera UI for its new offering. You can now access the Settings menu from the top instead of from the bottom on the current generation of devices. The redesigned Settings menu allows users to switch between frame rates, resolutions, and aspect ratios conveniently while recording video.
OnePlus 9 Pro also seems to be supporting the 8K video recording at 30 frames per second. The device also supports 4K video recording at 120 frames per second. With that said, there is still no concrete launch date for the series. We should expect to see more information in the coming days.
