2021 is quick approaching, and on this planet of Android, meaning a brand new Qualcomm chip and a brand new spherical of cellphone upgrades. OnePlus will probably be one of many earlier corporations out of the gate with the OnePlus 9, a tool that leaked fairly extensively at PhoneArena over the weekend.
First up, PhoneArena has hands-on footage with a prototype of the cellphone. The entrance design would not look that a lot totally different from the present OnePlus 8 Professional, with a gap punch digicam and slim bezels throughout. (Here is hoping we’ll get an under-display digicam with the OnePlus 9T later within the 12 months.) PhoneArena says the show is flat—bear in mind, that is the OnePlus 9, not the dearer OnePlus 9 Professional, which is able to almost certainly have a curved display.
The again has a chunky, rectangular digicam block with two massive digicam lenses and a 3rd smaller lens. Subsequent to the lenses is an LED flash and new “Ultrashot” branding. Additionally on the again is a wierd emblem instead of the OnePlus branding; the corporate apparently makes use of a pretend emblem on prototypes, just like what we have seen on Google units.
PhoneArena additionally has a slew of specs for the machine. The cellphone has a 120Hz, 6.55-inch 2400×1080 OLED show, the brand new Snapdragon 888 SoC, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 4,500mAh battery. Understand that this can be a prototype, so the specs may change. There may even in all probability be a OnePlus 9 Professional, which OnLeaks claims has a 6.7-inch show. It is a good wager the decision is someplace round 3168×1440, too, just like the OnePlus 8 Professional. Up to now, the OnePlus Professional mannequin has loved a refresh charge benefit over the bottom mannequin, so does the OnePlus 9 having a 120Hz show imply the 9 Professional will hit 144Hz?
The remainder of the cellphone has every thing about the place you’ll count on. There’s an earpiece on the high and a quantity rocker and mute change on the aspect. The underside homes a USB-C port, a speaker, and a SIM tray that appears prefer it has some quantity of water resistance because of a rubber gasket.
The cellphone is predicted to be out someday in March.
