OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro review with Hasselblad cameras, 120Hz display, and improved charging

 The latest OnePlus smartphones for 2021. The OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro are the first OnePlus devices released with the Hasselblad camera. Sponsored by OnePlus.

OnePlus 9 Pro introduces Fluid Display 2.0 and Warp Charge 50 for wireless charging. It also has a on-demand Sony IMX789 image sensor in its main camera. Vanilla model has its own upgrades.

The main feature of this generation is the camera that Hasselblad helped develop and the OnePlus 9 Pro has the best version. In its first tour of the smartphone sector, the Swedish camera maker focused on improving the color science of the two phones.

The main camera uses the IMX789 sensor jointly developed with Sony. It's a large 1 / 1.43 inch sensor with 1.12μm resolution and 48MP resolution. It features the very latest in camera technology, including dual original ISO, Digital Overlap HDR (DOL-HDR) and a 2x2 lens on the chip (OCL). And OIS of course.

This sensor can produce 12-bit RAW images. Hasselblad Pro's dedicated mode in the camera app will help you fine tune your photos to have a natural look and feel. The main sensor can also record 8K video at 30 fps as well as 4K at 120 fps. There is a 2MP black and white camera on the board that aims to assist the main camera in capturing monochrome photos.

The ultra wide-angle camera boasts another Sony sensor, the 50MP IMX766. The 1/1.56” sensor sits behind a freeform lens, which reduces distortion near the edges to 1% (compared to 10-20% for a typical lens). This camera has an autofocus system that allows it to shoot macro photos at just 4 cm distance.

This phone skips the periscope, equipping a standard telephoto lens instead. It offers 3.3x optical magnification (77 mm), bringing ever so slightly closer to the action than 8 Pro’s 3x lens. The 8MP sensor in that one has 1.0µm pixels and OIS.

The new Fluid Display 2.0 makes its debut with the OnePlus 9 Pro. It’s a 6.7” LTPO panel, which promises up to 50% power savings in general usage. This efficiency stems from the ability to adjust the refresh rate from the top 120Hz (for a smooth UI) all the way down to 1Hz (used when reading text or showing the Always On Display). The display can adapt to its content too, e.g. run at 24Hz for movies or 90Hz for Fortnite.

The 1440p+ display is built using the E4 emitting material and native 10-bit color depth. It has ambient light sensors on the front and back so that it can automatically adjust its color temperature. All of this earned it an A+ score from DisplayMate. The display is quite bright too, peaking at 1,300 nits.

The 120Hz refresh rate is backed by touch sampling rate of 240Hz, which improves response times when gaming. Speaking of gaming, let’s look at the chipset.

The OnePlus 9 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 888, of course, paired with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. The new Cool Play setup is based on the 8T cooling solution, but with a larger vapor chamber, thicker graphite sheets and more copper foil for a higher capacity to pull heat away.

The phone comes with 8GB of RAM as standard, but you can upgrade to 12GB. Base storage is 128GB, with a 256GB option. Check the bottom of this article for a table with the prices.

Besides a new display, this phone also introduces Warp Charge 50 Wireless. The new wireless charger is bought separately and offers two coils so the 9 Pro can be charged vertically or horizontally (say, while you’re watching a movie). A full 1-100% charge takes only 43 minutes.

But if you are really in a hurry, then you can just use the Warp Charge 65T wired charger that comes with the phone. It’s twice as fast as the 8 Pro charger – 1-100% takes 29 minutes, 8 Pro’s 30W charger only gets to 50% in that time. Also, you can use this to charge other gadgets that support SB Power Delivery: a laptop, a power bank, a Nintendo Switch, etc (PPS is supported).
