OnePlus has unveiled yet more camera specifications about the OnePlus 9 series. However, leaked marketing renders suggest that OnePlus has used a plastic frame on the OnePlus 9. The OnePlus 9 will have a flat display though, unlike the curved OnePlus 9 Pro.

We may be a while from the OnePlus 9 series launch, but the company's marketing department is well underway with generating hype about the OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro and possibly even the OnePlus 9R. Earlier this week, the company confirmed its Hasselblad partnership, details of which it has now published on Twitter, Weibo and YouTube. According to its recent social media posts, Hasselblad has helped OnePlus tune its colour reproduction.

However, there is no indication that Hasselblad has provided any lenses or sensors to OnePlus for the OnePlus 9 series. Instead, OnePlus and Pete Lau describe the partnership as a 'Natural Color Calibration with Hasselblad'.

Additionally, OnePlus has confirmed that it will be used Sony's IMX766 sensor as an ultra-wide-angle camera on at least the OnePlus 9 Pro. The company has showcased the accuracy of its new ultra-wide-angle camera, as the photos below demonstrate. It is worth remembering that OnePlus emphasised how great the OnePlus 8 Pro's ultra-wide camera was before launching it, so we doubt that OnePlus used the OnePlus 8 Pro to take the distorted photo below.

Incidentally, Roland Quandt and WinFuture have revealed multiple OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro marketing renders. While the pair share the same design, there are a few differences. On the one hand, the OnePlus 9 Pro has an additional rear-facing camera and what may be a ToF sensor or a laser autofocus. Moreover, OnePlus has equipped the OnePlus 9 with a flat display and the OnePlus 9 Pro a curved one.

On the other hand, there are no obvious antenna bands on the OnePlus 9, suggesting that the device has a plastic frame. Typically, companies include antenna bands to improve signal strength, as seen on the OnePlus 9 Pro or its predecessor. Google hid these on the Pixel 4 series, but their omission generally means that a device has a plastic frame.

The OnePlus 9 series will debut on March 23. OnePlus is expected to launch the OnePlus Watch simultaneously, too.
