OnePlus flagships barely impressed their audiences with the camera features. It seems the company is focused on improving its optical capabilities on its next flagship offering. It used to be rumored that OnePlus will partner with Leica for its OnePlus 9 series, but it was later claimed that it won’t. Practical pictures of the OnePlus 9 Pro prototype now point to a new partnership for OnePlus with Hasselblad.
The latest development comes from YouTube, where Dave2D posted a video of the prototype images of the OnePlus 9 Pro. According to him, the photos were shared with him by a user on Discord. It showed Hasselblad branding on the camera module, which houses four cameras. Two of them are oriented vertically, while the other two are horizontally under the Hasselblad branding. For reference, OnePlus isn’t the first company to partner with Hasselblad. Motorola did it years ago with the Moto Z Camera Mod.
OnePlus 9 Pro has a QHD + display with a resolution of 3120 x 1440. It will likely have a refresh rate of 120 Hz. OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro are equipped with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset. The former could be equipped with a 6.55-inch display similar to that of the OnePlus 8T. Additionally, it’s a flat design instead of the curved design seen on the OnePlus 8 5G. The device is supposed to do sports two 48MP sensors and a 16MP selfie shooter.
OnePlus is working on an earlier launch than usual for its next flagship. If the rumors are to be believed, the OnePlus 9 series could hit the market in March.
