We all know that OnePlus is going to launch the OnePlus 9 Series, which will include two smartphones- The onePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro. The company will launch its next flagship smartphone at the 2021 Qualcomm event.Unsurprisingly, today we have got the first on-hand image of the OnePlus 9 along with some leaked specifications. So, lets’s breakdown the images and discuss the design and specifications.
According to the source, the OnePlus 9 carries a model number of LE2117, but it is not confirmed officially, this model number could be of the OnePlus 9 Pro. The exclusive on-hand image shows that this phone comes with a rear silvel colour panel.
We can witness a rectangular triple rear camera setup (with rounded corners) on the rear panel of the OnePlus 9. There are three cut-outs in the module: two big ones and a smaller one (supported by an LEd flash in the side-middle of those two big cut-outs). If we compare the design with the latest iPhone 12, it shows similarities in most of the aspects. The only difference is the third sensor in OnePlus 9. The image also reveals the microphones (top, button), SIM-Card tray, USB Type-C port, and speaker(at the bottom), along with the boot logo.
Now, let’s take a closer look at the camera sensors and their specifications.
In terms of the other specifications, the OnePlus 9 will be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset (paired with 8GB RAM). The non-pro variant will feature a 6.55-inch AMOLED punch-hole flat display. The display also offers Full HD+ (2400X1080)Pixels of screen resolution, 120Hz of refresh rate, and 20:9 aspect ratio.
The SoC of this phone will be paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB non-expandable memory configuration, 65W warp charging, IP68 rating, NFC, dual stereo speakers, and many more will be there as well. The phone will run on Android 11 onboard accompanied by the Oxygen OS Skin.
Regarding the camera sensors, it has a primary sensor of 48-megapixels. It is not confirmed whether the sensor is Sony IMX689. As per the focal length and pixels, the OnePlus 9 camera will offer a focal length of 6mm, and the output pixel will be of 12MP (4000×3000 pixels) with an f/1.88 lens. This is probably due to the pixel binning. The second sensor is said to be an ultra-wide-angle sensor, accompanied by the 48MP primary sensor and a 16 MP sensor. On the front side the phone will have a 4MP front camera with an f/2.4 lens.
