In 2020, OnePlus launched more mobile phone product lines than ever before. Apart from the mid-range Nord series, there are also Nord 100 and Nord 10 models introduced last month. But for enthusiasts, the most concern is when the successor to the new flagship OnePlus 8 series will arrive. It is reported that OnePlus will launch a new OnePlus 9 Pro 5G smartphone that supports 65W wired flash charging in March 2021.
Earlier, the well-known whistleblower @OnLeaks shared the first images of the new OnePlus 9 Pro 5G device. Now the Dutch technology blog LetsGoDigital also shared the concept renderings and 3D rendering videos co-created with designer Jermaine Smit (also known as Concept Creator).
Analyzing the recent news and images, the new OnePlus 9 Pro 5G looks like a hybrid of the OnePlus 8 series and Nord models and is expected to be equipped with a 6.7-inch @ QHD+ resolution fluid screen that supports 120Hz high refresh rate.
Additionally, the device may follow the OnePlus 8 series Infinity-O punch-hole screen solution, but the single camera located in the upper left corner of the screen, or from the OnePlus 8 (Pro) 16MP to 32MP (new Sony image sensor).
Moreover, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 SoC, the storage combination of 8GB RAM + 128GB and 12GB RAM + 256GB are expected, the new OnePlus 9 Pro 5G is also expected to adopt an upgraded rear rectangular four-camera module and support Dolby Atmos based on dual speakers (Dolby Atoms) + Subtle tactile vibration engine experience.
Looking back at the OnePlus 8 Pro model with four rear cameras for the first time, it is equipped with a 48MP Sony wide-angle main camera + 84MP ultra wide-angle + 8MP telephoto + 5MP special style lens supporting 3X optical zoom, supplemented by a dual-color temperature LED flash. OnePlus 9 Pro 5G has a new opportunity to further upgrade to a 5X hybrid optical zoom (10X optical change cannot be expected).
In terms of charging, OnePlus has also made significant progress. From the 30W wired flash charge of the OnePlus 8 Pro, it directly jumped to the 65W super flash charge on OnePlus 8T (although unfortunately the support for wireless charging has been cut off). Finally, it is expected that the release time of the new OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro 5G devices will be delayed by one month (until March 2021) compared with previous years, In terms of price, the two models are expected to be priced at 700/900 Euros.
