OnePlus 9 vs OnePlus 9 Pro: More specifications leaked ahead of anticipated March release
OnePlus is expected to release its next suite of smartphones in March, and Digital Chat Station has weighed in on what we should expect from the screens of the 9 and the 9 Pro. There have been rumours that OnePlus plans to release three devices in March though, with the OnePlus 9E tipped as a budget option to the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro.
On the one hand, Digital Chat Station asserts that the OnePlus 9 will have a 6.55-inch display, which would be the same as the one found in the OnePlus 8T. Likewise, the OnePlus 9 will utilise a 120 Hz panel with an FHD+ resolution, a resolution that should correspond to 2,400 x 1,080 pixels and a density of 402 PPI, assuming an aspect ratio of 20:9. The OnePlus 9 will have a flexible and flat screen too that OnePlus will intersect with a 3.8 mm hole for a front-facing camera. Again, this hole will sit in the top left-hand corner of the display.
The OnePlus 9 Pro will have the same size hole in an identical location, but with a QHD+ resolution like the OnePlus 8 Pro. In fact, it appears that the OnePlus 9 Pro's screen will retain the same key specifications as its predecessor, including a 120 Hz refresh rate and a curved finish.
On the other hand, Digital Chat Station adds that the OnePlus 9 will be 8 mm thick, 0.4 mm thinner than the OnePlus 8T. The thickness of the OnePlus 9 Pro will be identical to that of the OnePlus 8 Pro, though. Moreover, neither phones will exceed 200 g, but both will feature Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 SoC and a 4,500 mAh battery.
The OnePlus 9 series would seem an iterative update from last year's models then. However, OnePlus claims that it will bring its cameras up to the capabilities of those used by its competitors. Hence, the Chinese company may distinguish the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro from its predecessors on their cameras' strength, rather than with design overhauls.
