OnePlus 9 series is still a few months away but the leaks have already started to rack up. Just a few days after OnePlus 8T launched, speculations around the OnePlus 9 series launch were floating although it was squashed later. The folks at 91mobiles got their hand on the first-ever exclusive CAD-based render of the upcoming OnePlus 9. Although it isn’t a detailed one, it is enough to spark hype among fans.
OnePlus 9 Design & Render
If you compare the designs of both OnePlus 8T and 9, you won’t find much difference. The OnePlus 9 packs in a 6.55inch flat (Fluid AMOLED) display with a punch-hole cut-out on the top-left corner of the display. It goes without saying that the OnePlus 9 doesn’t have a curved front display but it does have a curved back panel that elevates grip on the device.
OnePlus is yanking up the refresh rate to 144Hz and as per the reports, the device will at least pick up a 120Hz refresh rate if not more.
Flip the phone and you’ll see a rather interesting triple camera setup. Located on the top-left corner of the back panel, the phone sports two giant camera sensors flanked with a tiny third camera sensor and a LED flash adjoining it in a rectangular camera bump. An OnePlus logo on the center and OnePlus branding at the bottom, and that’s pretty much all you have when it comes to the design. Note that it is still an unofficial render, and it is too early to zero in a design for the upcoming OnePlus 9 series.
OnePlus 9 Specifications
Thanks to the input from various sources and of course, past trends, we do know some of the specs that the vanilla (and Pro) OnePlus 9 series will pack in. The device will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 SoC along with 8-12GB RAM. It will get a 65W Warp Charge similar to OnePlus 8T. Finally, there’s no doubt OnePlus 9 will arrive with OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11 out-of-the-box. Moreover, the device will be capable of upgrading to Android 12, 13, and 14 thanks to the usual three years of major Android OS support that OnePlus bundles with its flagship devices.
OnePlus 9 Series Release Date
A previous report did give us the alleged model numbers of the upcoming OnePlus 9 series. The vanilla OnePlus 9 is speculated to carry model number LE2110. Similarly, the OnePlus 9 Pro will pack model numbers LE2117, LE2119, and 2120. Finally, there’s a mystery OnePlus device with model number LE2127 which is likely to be summoned as OnePlus 9 Ultra or OnePlus 9T. There’s no official ETA available from the company as of now although reports suggested that the launch could be in March/April 2020. We aren’t aware of the OnePlus 9 price in India or elsewhere as well but we will keep you updated once more information is available about it.
