OnePlus 9 Pro joins hands with century-old Hasselblad for camera
A few weeks back it was rumored that the OnePlus 9 series will feature Leica Cameras to enhance the imaging effect of smartphone photography. There was another rumor that Huawei remains Leica’s exclusive partner in the smartphone industry. This means OnePlus never actually had a chance of getting their hands on Leica cameras and other technologies. Instead of collaborating with another top camera manufacturer, OnePlus will be collaborating with Hasselblad.
The OnePlus 9 Pro will feature a quad-camera setup on the rear, housing a primary sensor and an ultra-wide sensor. The two cameras on the bottom could be a telephoto lens, which will be accompanied by a depth sensor, a macro camera, and a camera filter. Moreover, there is also an LED flash on the rear with a laser autofocus system and the telephoto lens will be capable of supporting up to 3.3x zoom.
Other specifications and features revealed by the prototype
As for other aspects, from the images of the OnePlus 9 Pro engineering machine, it is visible that the front of the smartphone continues with the curved hole-punch screen design. The device’s body adopts the front and rear hyperboloid design, which provides an excellent hand feel.
OnePlus features a unique three-stage mute button located above the power button on the right side of the device. It provides a fast scene switching function and is also seen as a unique feature of the Android camp.
In general, the OnePlus 9 Pro still maintains a consistent high-quality design that is synonymous with OnePlus smartphones. The texture is impressive and the rear camera module by Hasselblad looks very stylish and trendy. With the impressive additions of the Snapdragon 888 chipset and a high refresh rate of 120Hz, the users are likely to have an excellent experience.
