OnePlus 9 in the news


OnePlus 9 product description

The OnePlus 9 is already the 13th generation 'flagship killer' but this time with a Hasselblad camera. By adding more changes between this and the Pro model, this OnePlus 9 has remained reasonably affordable. What consessions OnePlus had to make for this we will gladly explain here.

Camera with the help of Hasselblad

OnePlus wanted to close the gap with the competition once and for all before 2021. It has tried to do that particularly in the camera area. The OnePlus cameras were always good, but they were not the best. OnePlus has enlisted the help of Hasselblad for this. They have calibrated the camera so that they capture more natural colours and shoot wide angle images without distortion. According to OnePlus this should ensure that skin tones are captured more naturally, something smartphones always struggle with. The camera itself, by the way, comes from Sony. The 50MP ultra-wide-angle camera was specially designed and manufactured by OnePlus. The 48MP main camera features a bright f/1.8 lens consisting of 7 elements and finally there is a third camera with a monochrome lens. Optical zooming is therefore not available and the macro lens for extreme close-ups from its predecessor has disappeared.

Same screen, new charging method

The screen on the OnePlus 9 is still a 120Hz fast Fluid Display. This one is nice and big at 6.55 inches, it's flat this time, and thanks to the high refresh rate, it feels fast. Not only does it seem fast, the Android-based OxygenOS 11 is actually fast. Here OnePlus does get the necessary help from the built-in Snapdragon 888 processor. At the time of release, this is Qualcomm's most powerful chipset. The battery is 4500 mAh and can be charged quickly with 65W. A short session of 15 minutes is already enough for a whole day. New this year is that you can also charge the entry-level OnePlus wirelessly. Previously, this was only possible with the Pro model. However, the speed is limited to 'only' 15 Watt.

Main OnePlus 9 specifications

  • 6,55-inch Fluid AMOLED display with smooth 120Hz
  • 48+50+2MP Hasselblad camera with ultra-wide-angle and monochrome lens
  • 16MP selfie camera with face unlock
  • Snapdragon 888-processor with 8/128GB or 12/256GB memory
  • 4500 mAh battery with 65W fast charging and 15W wireless charging
  • 5G support for blazing fast mobile internet
  • Stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos sound

Plastic frame

Phones are unfortunately becoming more expensive and to keep the costs as low as possible OnePlus has made some concessions. The screen is flat and the frame is made of plastic. The latter should not be a problem because the front and back are made of sturdy Gorilla Glass. Fortunately, OnePlus has not skimped on the performance and the screen, which are as good as ever. On the camera side, the OnePlus 9 clearly lacks some features compared to the OnePlus 9 Pro. You can not zoom optically and there is no optical image stabilisation. Furthermore, this OP9 lacks an official IP rating for waterproofing.

To capture the colour as true to nature as possible takes a lot of work. What exactly and how Hasselblad helped with the OnePlus 9 Pro can be seen here.

We always find it funny to see what names manufacturers come up with for their colour versions. For this OnePlus 9 Pro, they've come up with the name Morning Mist, and we kind of get why somewhere
