This is the first hands-on look at the OnePlus 9 5G
The smartphone, which is pictured in silver, features an updated rear camera module similar to the ones included on recent Oppo smartphones. It consists of two larger sensors and a much smaller third camera, in addition to the usual LED flash.
As you may have noticed, the logo on the back of the phone doesn’t match up with the official OnePlus identity. That’s because the Never Settle brand, like many other companies, creates dedicated logos for its prototype units.
The OnePlus 9 5G closely resembles the OnePlus 8T 5G from the front
Moving over to the front, OnePlus has selected a flat punch-hole screen that measures in at 6.55-inches. The hands-on photos corroborate the presence of slim bezels, although overall the device closely resembles its predecessor — the OnePlus 8T — and won’t be a massive leap forward in terms of design.
Those of you interested in the specs will be pleased to hear that we have confirmed support for a 120Hz refresh rate and HDR content. The resolution of the display stands at 2400 x 1080p (Full-HD+) and the chosen aspect ratio is 20:9.
Turning the OnePlus 9 on its side reveals a metal frame that’s presumably made out of aluminum. The top is home to a microphone and the bottom is where the all-important USB-C port and speaker are located.
Lastly, a volume rocker sits on the left side of the frame. The right, on the other hand, is home to the power button and Alert Slider.
The OnePlus 9 5G includes the new Snapdragon 888 chipset
The images above are not all. PhoneArena has also obtained several screenshots that detail some of the key OnePlus 9 specifications.
The only major details PhoneArena wasn’t able to uncover are the battery capacity and the camera specifications, which seem to have been automatically modified by pre-installed software. Nevertheless, PhoneArena suspects that the 12-megapixel and 4-megapixel resolutions listed for the rear and front cameras, respectively, will translate into 48-megapixel and 16-megapixel sensors on the final units.
