It’s about time we get a release date for the OnePlus 9 series and the company’s official site has teased a big announcement for March 8. Before you get your hopes too high, this will likely be the date when we get the official launch date for the new OnePlus flagships and not their actual launch event. The short teaser only mentions that “Something new is on the horizon” and the page is titled Moonshot alluding to the launch of a spacecraft or in this case new phone lineup.
We’ve already seen plenty of leaks regarding the OnePlus 9 series which specify three phones. The OnePlus 9E/Lite will be the affordable entry with a 6.5-inch FHD+ display with 90Hz refresh rate, Snapdragon 690 chipset and 64MP primary camera. The vanilla OnePlus 9 should up the refresh rate to 120Hz and will be powered by the flagship Snapdragon 888 chipset. We’re expecting a triple camera setup with a 48MP main shooter on the back.
The 9 Pro will come with a larger curved 6.78-inch QHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate LTPO panel. Snapdragon 888 and 4,500 mAh battery with 65W wired and 45W wireless charging. As far as cameras we should see a wide, ultrawide, macro and depth sensor module layout but no dedicated periscope. We’ve heard rumors about a 48MP main shooter and 16MP selfie cam but nothing more. OnePlus is working with Hasselblad for the 9 Pro’s cameras so expectations are higher than in previous years.
