Today, OnePlus finally officially announced the launch date for the OnePlus 9 series. According to the company’s Twitter handle, the OnePlus 9 series will arrive on March 23rd. This smartphone will be the first to use the Hasselblad smartphone imaging system. Furthermore, the company reports that it will have a three-year cooperation with Hasselblad. OnePlus believes that this year will be the “OnePlus Image Year”.
Hasselblad is a high-quality film camera manufacturer located in Gothenburg, Sweden. It was founded in 1841 and prospered from the 1880s to World War II. Its Victor Hasselblad was appointed as a royal service for the Royal Swedish Air Force. Aerial cameras were widely known for entering the civilian market after the end of World War II. However, Hasselblad is probably best known for the American Apollo moon landing program. At that time, almost all photos were taken with Hasselblad modified cameras.
According to previous news, the OnePlus 9 series will include three models, OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro, and OnePlus 9R. In addition, the company will release its first OnePlus Watch at this event.
OnePlus 9 will come with the Snapdragon 888 chip. This device also uses a 6.55-inch 120Hz refresh rate FHD+ resolution screen with a size of 70×151 mm. The lens part will include the two main cameras and 2MP cameras of the OnePlus 9 Pro. This smartphone will also come with a built-in 4500 mAh battery that supports a 65W fast charging head. The least configuration will be 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

This device will support 8K video (30 FPS) and 4K video (120 FPS). It will have at least 12GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
