In a few weeks from now, OnePlus is expected to its latest flagship, OnePlus 9 series. According to @DigitalChatStation, the OnePlus 9 will come with a 6.55-inch FHD+120Hz flexible straight screen. In addition, the OnePlus 9 Pro will use a 6.78-inch QHD+120Hz flexible curved screen. However, both smartphones will use a 3.8mm± single punch-hole in the upper left corner. The blogger also stated that the two new Snapdragon 888 models are both thin and light. The standard version is only 8mm thick, the Pro is only 8.5mm. In addition, the weight of these phones does not exceed 200g.
Previous reports claim that the OnePlus 9 Pro will support a 45W wireless charging speed. In addition, OnePlus will use reverse charging for the first time. The regular OnePlus 9 will also support wireless charging, but the power is temporarily unknown. In addition, the OnePlus 9 Pro will support IP68 dustproof and waterproof.
The OnePlus 9 will come with 65W fast-charging and a bigger battery capacity
The OnePlus 8 Pro is so far the only device with wireless and reverses wireless charging. It’s a surprise to see that these features are coming for the vanilla flagship next year. After all, the OnePlus 8T released in October didn’t pack any of these features. The OnePlus 9 series, apparently, represents a major step for the company. According to 91mobiles, the OnePlus 9 will get a 65W fast-charging. This tech was presented with the OnePlus 8T and will be a standard for the next year’s flagships. Further, the battery of the vanilla is getting a significant bump from the 4,300mAh in the vanilla 8 to the 4,500mAh battery in the OnePlus 9.
According to reports, the OnePlus will release its devices in mid-March. Just like other companies, OnePlus is bringing its yearly flagships a little bit earlier than usual. It’s curious to see how many leaks are popping out. After all, we’re still three months away from a release. Based on this we expect more details to keep popping out in the coming months prior to the release.
The Lite variant will have a Snapdragon 865 SoC
Both the vanilla OnePlus9 and OnePlus9 Pro are set to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. However, a new report states that the OnePlus9 Lite will differ from a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. That’s a strategy that Realme used this year with the release of the Realme X3 SuperZoom featuring last year’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+. For those unaware, Realme is a sister brand. The OnePlus9 Lite with the Snapdragon 865 will probably be cheaper than the other two, but probably will not be cheap as the OnePlus Nord. So in the end, we’re curious to see how the Lite variant will perform in the market.
