At the 2020 Qualcomm Snapdragon Technology Summit held a few days ago, a new generation of Android flagship chips was officially unveiled. But the first thing that caught everyone’s attention was not its performance, but the unexpected name. Later, the manufacturer explained that 888 is a lucky number in China. So they decided to change the naming order. This also means the Snapdragon 888 will have more focus on the Chinese market and Chinese major smartphone brands. It’s also announced 14 OEMs will make their own flagships powered by this chip. OnePlus is not exception. Its upcoming handset has appeared on various renders.
According to the latest renders, the OnePlus 9 uses basically the same design as the previously leaked photos showed. The new OnePlus 9 series will include at least OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro versions. The main difference should refer to the camera sensors amount. It adopts a very popular matrix camera module, including two large and one small, and a flash. It is suspected that the phone will use a dual main camera setting similar to OnePlus 8 Pro. But we still have no information what parameters they will have.
In addition, the color of this patent is pure white.
In other aspects, the OnePlus 9 will use a 6.55-inch FHD screen and the Pro variant will use a 6.8-inch QHD screen. The whole line will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 mobile platform, based on the 5nm process. It also adopts the “1+3+4” octa-core design. It integrates the Adreno 660 GPU.
In addition, the OnePlus 9 will also support 65W flash charging and 40W wireless charging, and come with dual stereo speakers. The OnePlus 9 Pro will also introduce IP68 dust and water resistance.
The new OnePlus 9 series is expected to be released around March next year.
