After months of hype, OnePlus finally announced the OnePlus 9 series on March 23. If you already know our reviews of OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro and have made a purchase decision, then here, you can be happy to spend money to buy the flagship store, because “pre-order” has been changed to “buy.”
OnePlus 9 has Snapdragon 888, a 6.55-inch 1080p 120Hz OLED display, OxygenOS 11 powered by Android 11, and a 4,500 mAh battery equipped with the company’s 65W proprietary Warp Charging 65T standard and 15W Qi wireless charging. 9 has a 48MP main camera, a 50MP ultra-widescreen and a 2MP monochrome sensor.
There are two storage versions of this phone: 8GB + 128GB and 12GB + 256GB, which are US$729 and US$829 respectively. There are two colors to choose from, Astral Black and Winter Mist, but the latter is only available in the basic model.
If you are looking for accessories, OnePlus’ Karbon Bumper and Sandstone Bumper are priced at $40 and $25, respectively. You can buy them from OnePlus.com, as well as a tempered glass screen protector for $30.
OnePlus 9 Pro
OnePlus 9 Pro has a better camera system, larger screen and faster wireless charging (among other features). The 9 Pro is powered by the same Snapdragon 888 as its smaller sibling, has a 6.7-inch 1440p 120Hz display, is physically larger, and on the surface a better 48MP main camera, 50MP ultra-wide camera and 8MP telephoto, as well as that monochrome camera. It has an IP68 rated power, and in addition to the 65W Warp Charge 65T, it can also be charged with 50W wirelessly via Warp Charge 50 Wireless.
However, all these extra features of the smaller model will cost you more. The basic version of OnePlus 9 Pro has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space and costs US$969, while 12GB + 256GB costs US$1,069. Unfortunately, the cheaper version is not yet available on the OnePlus website. The company previously told us that the basic model will be available in the United States, and we have once again provided a more precise timetable for the availability, but did not immediately respond.
The retail price of the Warp 50 wireless supercharger on OnePlus.com is $70, but there is currently no sale. If you are keen to pick up the box, you can buy the Sandstone Bumper Case (black/gray) for $25, and then buy the Unique Bumper Case and Karbon Bumper Case for $40 each.
