OnePlus fans looking forward to the next flagship phone will be shocked to see that the OnePlus 9 Pro looks very familiar. Renders of the phone which have just been leaked show that OnePlus is gunning for a design (at least on the rear) similar to that of the Galaxy S20 FE from Samsung.
The renders are from none other than Steve Hemmerstoffer a.k.a. OnLeaks via the Voice platform. The images show that the OnePlus 9 Pro will have a curved display with a punch hole at the top left corner of the screen.
The design of the screen might be unchanged from that of the OnePlus 8 Pro but the size is different. According to the leaker, the screen size is 6.55-inches making it smaller than its predecessor. This is quite surprising and has resulted in speculations that OnePlus may launch a bigger model.
On the back is where the OnePlus 9 Pro appears to be a Galaxy S20 FE clone. The camera setup has now been moved to the left just like that of the OnePlus 8T. There are four cameras of different sizes on the back – two of them are large and protrude while the other two small ones and flush with the back. The housing is also home to the LED flash and a microphone. Unlike the Galaxy S20 FE, the OnePlus 9 Pro has a glass back.
Steve says that the design is still at the prototype stage but most of it is set in stone. However, there may still be some changes, most especially with respect to the rear camera design.
The OnePlus 9 Pro has the alert slider and power button on the right while the left is home to the volume rocker. There are two holes at the bottom for the speaker along with the USB-C port and a SIM tray slot.
The source of the leak confirms that the OnePlus 9 Pro will indeed launch in March 2020 as earlier reported. It will come with a Snapdragon 875 processor and run Android 11 out of the box.
