OnePlus 9 series to sport major camera improvements with Hasselblad Camera for Mobile

OnePlus has also announced its partnership with camera manufacturer Hasselblad to co-develop the smartphone camera systems for future OnePlus flagship devices. “The two companies have already been cooperating on the revamped camera system – Hasselblad Camera for Mobile – for the new OnePlus 9 Series, set to launch globally on March 23,” OnePlus said in its press release.

OnePlus has already confirmed that the OnePlus 9 series will use a custom Sony IMX789 sensor, which the company claims will be the “largest and most advanced main camera sensor ever on a OnePlus device.”

Compared to the previous-generation OnePlus smartphones, the OnePlus 9 series is said to deliver more dynamic and vibrant colours in photos, thanks to a 12-bit RAW. More features that the Hasselblad Camera for Mobile will offer include improved HDR video recording and support for capturing 4K 120FPS and 8K 30FPS video.

OnePlus 9 series global launch on March 23: What to expect?

OnePlus is expected to launch the OnePlus 9 smartphones series at the event with three devices – OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro, and OnePlus 9E, or as some are calling it, the OnePlus 9R. OnePlus 9 Pro will be the most premium of the lot, while the OnePlus 9E will be the most affordable.

As for specifications, the OnePlus 9 Pro and OnePlus 9 could be powered by the Snapdragon 888 processor, while the budget OnePlus 9E/9R will pack mid-tier Snapdragon 690 SoC, respectively.  More features expected for the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro are a Fluid AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate.

More features include support for 5G, up to 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. All devices are expected to come with improved cameras, compared to the OnePlus 8 series and support for 65W fast charging. While the OnePlus 9 could get three rear cameras, the OnePlus 9 Pro might sport four cameras at the back.

As for the OnePlus 9E/9R, it could come with triple rear cameras, a 5,000mAh battery, and support for a 90Hz refresh rate.

OnePlus 9 series global launch event: Will OnePlus Watch launch as well?

OnePlus Watch is on the cards as well, though it remains to be seen if the company decides to launch it at the OnePlus 9 series global launch event. OnePlus Watch has already been confirmed by the company and it was also spotted in a patent filed by OnePlus, which reveals two design types – one with a Sports band made of silicone and another with a possibly leather strap.

OnePlus Watch is rumoured to sport a circular dial and it will get features like heart rate sensor, activity tracker, sleep tracker, and more. It is expected to run Wear OS with the company’s own OxygenOS and it will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 4100 chip.

As far as the India launch is concerned, a recent listing on the BIS certification site does hint at the possibility. However, we will need to wait for the company to reveal more details to know anything for sure.
