It’s an open secret that OnePlus over the years has struggled with consistency, especially with its cameras. But with the One Plus 9 Pro 5g, it wants to set the record straight. The new camera sensors are being co-developed under the aegis of Swedish Camera manufacturer Hasselblad which is quite renowned for its medium format cameras that captured the lunar landings during NASA’s Apollo missions. Oneplus’s long term partnership with Hasselblad is seemingly a gamechanger.
One plus, especially with the 9 pro hopes to compete with the likes of Apple and Samsung when it comes to cameras of its flagship products. This phone is available in two variants in India with one offering 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage priced at Rs. 64,999 and the other with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage price at an increment of Rs 5000. The RAM and storage used on the One Plus 9 Pro 5g are of LPDDR5 and UFS 3.1.
One plus hasn’t experimented too untowardly with the design and is largely similar to the Oneplus 8 Pro. It is just slightly thicker at 8.7 mm however a bit lighter weighing around 197g.
Oneplus has opted for Qualcomm’s best current SoC, the Snapdragon 888. It is an absolute beast of a chip that was initially perceived to be a global variant of Samsung’s Galaxy S21 series. As far as the Indian experience is concerned, Asus ROG Phone 5 provided it briefly but this will be the first full review.
The One Plus 9 Pro 5g is powered by a Li-Po 4500 mAh, a non-removable battery that fast charges at 65W and reaches 100% from 1% at an astounding rate of only 29 minutes. So it is a great deal battery wise. Considering its high-end pricing it is fair to say that it will not be the most popular choice of most of the customers but it might satisfy a niche category.
