It’s been a month since the OnePlus 9 5G was first leaked and we still hadn’t seen actual photos of the device.
Today PhoneArena has released a series of live images showing the next generation OnePlus flagship in its entirety.
The smartphone, shown in the photo in silver, has a rear camera module similar to those included in recent Oppo smartphones. It consists of two larger sensors and a much smaller third camera, in addition to the usual LED flash.
OnePlus has added the “Ultra Shot” branding to this pre-production unit. However, it remains to be seen if this name also appears in the final version. In previous models like the OnePlus 8T, the brand finally chose to include the most important camera specifications instead of a name.
The logo on the back of the phone does not match the official OnePlus. That’s because the Never Settle brand, like many other companies, creates logos for their prototypes.
As for the front, OnePlus has selected a flat-screen that measures 6.55 ″. The photos corroborate the presence of slim bezels, although overall the device looks a lot like its predecessor – the OnePlus 8T – and it won’t be a big change in terms of design.
The display offers a 120Hz refresh rate and support for HDR content. The screen resolution is 2400 x 1080p (Full-HD +) and the chosen aspect ratio is 20: 9.
On the side of the OnePlus 9, we find a metal frame that is presumably made of aluminum. At the top, there is a microphone and at the bottom the USB-C port and the speaker.
The SIM card tray can also be seen at the bottom and the photos reveal a kind of rubber seal that will protect you from water and dust. Lastly, the volume control is on the left side of the frame. On the right, on the other hand, is the power button and the Alert Slider switch.
PhoneArena has also grabbed several screenshots detailing some of the OnePlus 9’s key specs.
The highlight is certainly a chipset called Lahaina, which is the code name for the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. This particular phone is equipped with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, with no upgrade option via of microSD cards. The presence of Android 11 and OxygenOS has also been confirmed.
The only important details that PhoneArena has been unable to uncover are the battery capacity and camera specifications, which appear to have been automatically changed by the pre-installed software. Probably the 12 and 4-megapixel resolutions listed for the rear and front cameras, respectively, will translate to 48 and 16-megapixel sensors in the final units.
