OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro are closer than expected, judging by the amount of information that is reported today. They range from confirmations regarding the design, passing from accurate information for the photographic sector, arriving at features that we would somehow expect but that the company will not integrate.

And it is precisely from here that the Chinese brand would start, deciding not to use a periscope lens in any of the 2 top models. This, in fact, is able to push the effectiveness of the optical zoom, and for this not to sacrifice the details that would be lost with a hybrid and / or digital zoom.

The information comes from a well-known leaker who reports it on Twitter. The company therefore "would not care" that its cameras go further as far as optical zoom is concerned but would prefer to focus on other parameters of photographic quality, not surprisingly in the camping module the "Ultrashoot" logo. Obviously, a sensor cannot be missing wide-angle lens, a sensor macro and two other standards.

The quantity of sensors also embraces the design. OnePlus 9 Pro is shown in a leak dressed in mirrored silver. In the image we see the front with a display that occupies almost the entire plant available with curved edges and frames that delimit the perimeter, all symmetrical to each other. The camera hole is present and is housed in the top left. Among other things, the company still reduces the diameter and equips the camera with a sensor from 32 MP.

In the side frame there are the usual volume keys with on / off, as well as the very comfortable and iconic physical switch button that accompanies the company's top smartphones since the beginning. In the back, returning to the camera, an island with two large vertical sensors with a resolution of 48 MP, a wide-angle sensor, a macro sensor and the inevitable LED flash.

But the information about the camera does not end there because the members of XDA have revealed that they have unpacked the APK of the camera App that will be installed on OnePlus 9 and they found a lot of interesting information inside:

  • Tilt-Shift: with this function you will be able to perfectly focus a plane and blur everything else: the app shows how to get satisfactory results through a tutorial.
  • Moon Mode: similar function already seen on Huawei smartphones for a year and a half now. Inside the mode there will be, in addition, the possibility of applying live and offline filters such as the black and white one, the vivid one, etc.
  • Starburst: an artificial effect that replicates the natural effect when pointing the camera towards an intense light source.
  • Hyperlapse: this function allows you to shoot a video in time-lapse mode but in motion.
  • Focus Peaking: mode that allows, through contrast analysis, to highlight the areas to be focused in a scene to ensure photos from "another perspective".

OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro will be based on the Snapdragon 888 SoC while on OnePlus 9 Lite there will probably be it Snapdragon 870. The displays of the two tops will have a refresh rate of 120 Hz while the Lite model "only" at 90 Hz. And again, fast charging will be 65 W on models with the latest Qualcomm SoC while on the Lite model it will reach 30W .

The new top of the OnePlus range will certainly be among the most interesting devices of 2021. Waiting for more information, here is everything we know about OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro.

OnePlus Nord is one of the best mid-range ever made. You can find it here , available immediately in the 128 GB and 256 GB variant.
