It’s been just a month since the launch of the OnePlus 8T and the company’s next flagship series is already striking the radar of leaks. The OnePlus 9 series is expected to launch around mid-March of 2021. And now, an exclusive report reveals the OnePlus 9 Camera’s design and specs. And it reminds us of the latest iPhone 12.
According to 91Mobiles’ source, the rear camera of the OnePlus 9 has a rectangular layout with rounded corners. There are two big cut-outs and a smaller one for the sensors along with an LED flash beside them. Precisely, the lens arrangement and the design looks a lot like Apple iPhone 12. However, the difference here is the layout is a bit longer and has a third sensor beneath.
That said, this camera setup leak corroborates with the early CAD renders which showed a OnePlus 9 in white color. It had a similar rectangular setup with slightly curved edges of the rear shell. You can take a closer look at the camera setup and CAD renders below:
OnePlus 9 Camera Specifications(Expected)
Coming back, 91Mobiles’ report also says that the OnePlus 9 will have a 48MP primary camera. Although the source isn’t sure if the sensor is Sony IMX689, it’s sure that it isn’t IMX586. Additionally, the OnePlus 9 camera will have a focal length of 6mm and its output will reportedly be 12MP(4000×3000 pixels). This is probably due to the Quad-Bayer pixel structure where four pixels are combined into one(pixel-binning).
Interestingly, the report adds that a 48MP ultra-wide sensor will also accompany the primary camera. This is surprising considering its predecessor, the OnePlus 8, and even the 8T only have a 16MP sensor. Having said that, there is no information on the third sensor but it could be a macro/monochrome lens.
OnePlus 9: What we know so far
OnePlus 9 series is expected to have OnePlus 9(LE2110/LE2117/LE2119), OnePlus 9 Pro(LE2120/LE2127) models. The non-Pro will likely have a 6.65-inch top-left punch-hole AMOLED display, 120Hz refresh rate, Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 SoC, RAM up to 8GB.
Apart from this, you can also expect standard features like IP68 rating, NFC, dual stereo speakers, 65W Warp Charging, and more. Let’s wait for more leaks as popular OnePlus tipster Max J. has hinted the same.
