OnePlus 9 leaked online, first leak hints at interesting changes

Just a few days after the launch of the OnePlus 8T, we now have a new leak about its successor, the OnePlus 9. While the phone’s launch is potentially months away, information has started to arrive about the phone that it will try to improve on the OnePlus 8T and process you will also face the competition that will be provided by next year’s flagships.

Coming courtesy of Twitter user Max J, the leak shows a graphic teaser revealing that the next device will be codenamed “Lemonade”. As it stands, very little is known about the OnePlus 9, but the teaser poster shared by the tipster reveals interesting things.

The leaked image shows that the OnePlus 9 may have a flat display on the front, instead of the double-curved glass bezel panel that OnePlus offers on its phones. This will be an interesting move on OnePlus’s part, as it would signal the company is focusing on usability rather than looks.

With the codename OnePlus leaked, it’s possible the phone is closer to launch than we expect, and with other phone makers like Samsung likely also its launch date, it’s possible the OnePlus 9 may be here sooner than expected.

While we have little information on the OnePlus 9 at the moment, we expect it to sport a better spec sheet and feature set than the current generation OnePlus 8T. To remind our readers, the OnePlus 8T comes with a 6.55-inch display with support for a high resolution of 2400 × 1080 pixels and a pixel density of 402ppi. The 20: 9 aspect ratio phone is also capable of running at a high refresh rate of 120Hz.

Under the hood, we have the trusty Snapdragon 865 SoC which has been paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR4 RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The core hardware may not be the fastest available right now, but it still feels powerful enough. As for the software, the phone’s hardware has been paired with a clean copy of the Oxygen OS based on Android 11

The OnePlus 8T also comes with a four-camera setup with a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor in the center. The lens has an aperture of F / 1.7. The lens also supports OIS and EIS. The phone also has a 16 megapixel ultra wide angle lens with a 123 degree field of view. There is also a 5-megapixel macro camera and a 2-megapixel monochrome lens on the device.
