Tech News: These are OnePlus 9 alternative colors which you can’t buy.
When the OnePlus 9 hit the market in April 2021, it was available in three colors: blue (pictured), purple, and black, and the Pro model was available in black, dark green, and gray. However, a leaker revealed that there were a lot more nuances expected for Android phones.
Popular leaker Max Jambor tweeted a photo showing multiple renders of the OnePlus 9 in light gray and green and the OnePlus 9 Pro in black and white. These are apparently based on live images that Jambor saw, although those shots have not been published.

It is not clear why OnePlus has decided not to make OnePlus 9 in these colors, but we can make some assumptions. First, the additional gray and black patterns may have been eliminated so that each hue was unique to one pattern, to reduce confusion between the two.
We probably haven’t seen the light green color because it’s the same as the OnePlus 8’s iconic aquamarine hue, and the company perhaps didn’t want potential buyers to confuse the two series.
