The OnePlus 9 series has been launched with the Snapdragon 888 flagship SoC onboard, along with a partnership with iconic camera maker, Hasselblad.

OnePlus 9 series

The OnePlus 9 series has reportedly seen significantly higher preorders than its predecessor, the OnePlus 8 series. OnePlus co-founder Pete Lau took to Twitter to reveal this statistic, claiming, “Record breaking day one preorders eclipse the OnePlus 8 series by 324 percent.” Absolute sales and preorder figures, however, were not disclosed by Lau. Given that the OnePlus 8 series was noted to be a bit of an incremental upgrade over the preceding OnePlus 7/7T series, the latest generation OnePlus 9 series of smartphones may have benefitted from many users possibly holding back, in order to go directly for the OnePlus 9 series as an upgrade to their older devices. It is also not clear as to what percentage of these orders have come from users who were already using OnePlus smartphones.

OnePlus 9 series: Specs and features

The OnePlus 9 features a flat, full HD+ LTPO AMOLED display, with 1-120Hz adaptive refresh rate, 6.55-inch display size and 402ppi pixel density. It features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC, along with up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB UFS 3.1 dual-lane storage. In terms of cameras, it features a 48MP primary Sony IMX689 unit, a 50MP Sony IMX766 ultra-wide unit, and a 2MP dedicated monochrome unit in the triple rear camera setup. The front camera features a 16MP sensor with electronic stabilisation, and the rear camera can record up to 8K videos at 30fps and 4K videos at 120fps. It runs on Android 11, and features a 4,500mAh battery with 65W Warp Charge fast charging technology.

The OnePlus 9 Pro features the same SoC, as well as the same RAM and storage variants. It also features a 6.71-inch Quad HD+ dual-curved LTPO AMOLED display, with the same adaptive refresh rate and 525ppi pixel density. On the camera front, it features a quad rear camera setup, with the same ultra-wide and monochrome units as the OnePlus 9. It features a 48MP custom Sony IMX789 main camera unit, and an 8MP telephoto unit with 3.3x optical zoom (and 30x hybrid zoom). The front camera also remains the same as the OnePlus 9, and so does the battery.

The OnePlus 9 series also has an India-specific OnePlus 9R, featuring the Snapdragon 870 SoC and the same RAM and storage variants as the other two variants. It gets the same display panel and size as the OnePlus 9, and a quad rear camera featuring a 48MP Sony IMX586 primary unit, a 16MP ultra-wide unit, a 2MP monochrome unit and a 5MP macro unit. The front camera and the battery specs remain the same as the rest.

OnePlus Red Cable Life upgrade

Alongside the OnePlus 9 series preorder milestone, the company has also announced that its premium Red Cable Club Life subscription plan, along with its existing device care and support services, will also offer an extended cloud storage quota of 1TB. Initially, the plan only offered 50GB of cloud storage, and therefore marks a major upgrade in the amount of cloud storage that OnePlus users subscribing to the plan will get. The OnePlus Red Cable Life plan can be availed by users at a price of Rs 1,999 per year.
