OnePlus is fighting only against those models and brands that are positioning in the high-end niche. So if previously, we were getting only one model per year, recently, this strategy had been changed. And now, we not only get two models in a year but also each of them has two variants. Simply put, if in the first half of 2020, we have seen the OnePlus 8 and the Pro variants, there should be the OnePlus 8T and 8T Pro in the second half. But do you think this will stop users from making new renders for the new-gen model? Of course, no. Some bloggers have already imagined how the new OnePlus 9 Pro will look. Obviously, it’s a render. And it’s naïve to think the final product will look so. But there is also a possibility that the upcoming OnePlus flagship phones will carry some design elements.
From the picture, we can see the OnePlus 9 Pro uses a true full-screen design on the front. There are no openings. On the back, the phone uses the so-called ‘Oreo’ rear camera module. Ben Geskin (the author) predicts that the OnePlus 9 Pro will use a 6.7-inch QHD+ 120Hz screen. Under the hood, it should host the upcoming Snapdragon 875 chip supplemented by 12GB memory + 512GB storage. As for the main camera, it will use a 64MP wide-angle / super-wide-angle + 16MP telephoto + 3D ToF + 16-megapixel solution. The battery will support 60W wireless charging.
Smartphone manufacturers including Huawei, Samsung, Xiaomi, and other brands are continuing their efforts in the field of under-screen cameras. In this sense, it is reported that under-screen cameras will be mass-produced and commercialized this year. But it is not clear whether related technologies will be applied to the OnePlus flagship phones.
