OnePlus will launch three phones in March: the OnePlus 9 Lite (or SE), the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro. Many specifications of the three phones are now on the street or are starting to leak. This time, the details of the screen on the OnePlus 9 have been leaked, in practice, it would be the panel of the OnePlus 8T.
In the upcoming 9 series, the OnePlus 9 will occupy the middle seat, just above the 9 SE or 9 Lite, and just below the OnePlus 9 Pro. In terms of specifications, it will have more in common with the more expensive Pro model: for example, the OnePlus 9 contains a Snapdragon 888 chipset, can fast-charge at 65 watts and offers support for wireless charging, although it does with ‘only’ 30 watts. , compared to the 45 watts for the Pro variant. In terms of screen, the OnePlus 9 is also inferior to the Pro model, with a smaller 6.55-inch panel that would come from the OnePlus 8T.
Rumor-maker Digital Chat Station states that OnePlus will use the T-model screen with the OnePlus 9. OnePlus’ 8T also included a 6.55-inch display, with a Full HD + resolution (2400 x 1080 pixels), a 120 Hz refresh rate and a 20: 9 aspect ratio. If OnePlus uses exactly the same panel for the OnePlus 9, we will probably find a hole-punch notch at the top right, and an in-display optical fingerprint scanner at the bottom of the screen.
It wouldn’t be the first time for OnePlus to reuse a T-model screen with the next high-end phone range. With the OnePlus 7, the panel of the 6T was reused; Apart from the renewed chipset, the device also had largely the same specifications. With the 9 this seems to be a bit different, leaked photos of the device previously showed a completely new design for the rear. The camera module, in particular, appears to have been designed differently, with room for three camera sensors, a flash and a laser autofocus system.
Focus on Pro
Prospective buyers of the Pro model can probably count on a new screen. The OnePlus 9 Pro is said to have a 6.78-inch screen with as yet unknown specifications – given it is a new screen size for OnePlus, the chances are small that it is a panel that they have already used. In contrast to the screen of the OnePlus 9, the 9 Pro will in any case use a (slightly) rounded screen.
It is expected that the launch of the OnePlus 9 SE, OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro will not belong in coming. Unlike previous years, OnePlus plans to launch its first high-end phones of the year in March, rather than April or May. By then, more details will probably be known about the prices and availability of the three high-end OnePlus devices.
