There have been a few debates about the OnePlus 9 series phones lately, and there are some lofty expectations from the Pro version. These phones are obviously going to come with the latest Snapdragon 888 chip, which itself promises massive improvements to the performance. Now the standard OnePlus 9 has also leaked, and in its full glory, too.
The photos display from every possible angle the OnePlus 9 5G off. In place of the traditional OnePlus logo, the appearance of a generic logo on the rear makes it likely that this is a prototype unit. Nevertheless, it provides us with the best look of the upcoming smartphone to date, with much of what we would expect from the USB-C port to the front and bottom stereo speakers as well as the side warning slider.
The most interesting thing about the live photos is the camera bump featuring the moniker “Ultrashot”. As smartphone OEMs love slapping names on their sensors, it may be that OnePlus is embracing this mark for its cameras. In other words, all three sensors, with two larger ones and a smaller device, can be clearly seen. This suits a dual 48MP wide and ultra-wide camera system with a third auxiliary unit that is usually included in many of the best OnePlus phones, in line with previous renders and leaks. A punch-hole selfie camera sits in front of the screen.
Here are a few screenshots from the device,
8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of non-expandable storage are also listed, with OxygenOS on top, and so is Android 11. This basic unit often refers to itself as “LE2117.” All that said, it is worth bearing in mind that this is a prototype with an OS construction according to it. While all these numbers and identifiers are admittedly very reliable, there is always a risk that some number of them may be misreported.
