OnePlus 9 Pro (5G) and OnePlus 9(5G) Specs & Full Details

OnePlus 9 Pro (5G) and OnePlus 9(5G): specs and everything for the buyers.

Years before, OnePlus followed the policy of “one flagship per year”. Days have changed, OnePlus is now going for more than one flagship launching in a year. Yes, there are three “smartphones” in the “OnePlus-9” series to take up the market. Among the three, “OnePlus 9” and “OnePlus 9 Pro” have rocked the market, the “OnePlus 9R” being the “cheaper” in the “OnePlus 9” lineup.

This topic will discuss in detail the first two models of the “OnePlus 9 lineup”, “OnePlus 9” and “OnePlus 9 pro”.

Expert’s comments and Review on OnePlus 9 series: to buy or not to buy:

OnePlus 9 starts from $729, whereas the “Pro” model costs $969. I say these are both upper-midrange smartphones. The buyer will get all the “specs” from the “Summary Table Comparison” at the last of the topic. But, I think buyer needs a “few” extra notes from the expert’s comments, to assist their decision-making process. I summon all the expert’s “reviews” as follows.

Andrew Hoyle from CNET is ready to give “OnePlus 9 Pro” 4.5 out of 5 stars. He clearly said a handset with such “high-end” cameras is gorgeous. He added that the OnePlus 9 pro takes really “excellent images”. He was also pretty much impressed with its stunning 50W wireless-charging facility. Andrew was only a bit unhappy with the 4500 mAh battery. The battery could have been more powerful, said, Andrew.

Mr. Dieter Bohn from Verge had almost the same views as Andrew. He said anyone can consider “OnePlus 9 Pro” as “one of the best android-alternative to Samsung”. He also felt about “OnePlus 9 Pro” as “one of the “best user-experiences” you can get using Android”. Unlike other reviewers, Bohn said the battery life is “ok”.

David Lumb from “TechRadar” has reviewed the “OnePlus 9”. David is unhappy with the absence of the “Telephoto” lens. David said, “Vanilla OnePlus 9” just misses a “few” features to have the “premium” look & feel. Though he concluded “OnePlus 9” is great for its “price-tag”.  He gave 4.5 out of 5 stars.

I think if you are not on a budget and think to collect a “Pro” model, the OnePlus 9 Pro is the best “Android-Handset” for its “camera-features” to buy, with almost the same “technically advanced” camera setup like “Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra”. Not only that, 120Hz adaptive refresh rate technology, large OLED display panel,video shoot at  8k @30fps & 4k@40/120fps, and 50W fast wireless charging make the OnePlus 9 pro a “pride possession”.

Whether OnePlus 9 is a bit lacking the “x” factor as it does not have the telephoto lens. But, 6.55 inches flat AMOLED display panel with static 120Hzrefresh rate and 65W fast charging facility covers up the missing “x” factor to an extent. Someone may think that it is missing the “premier” look, but I think the OnePlus 9 pretty much justifies its “Price” tag.

Frequently “Asked Questions” by the buyers:

Let’s clear out a few questions that everyone is searching in Google

Do the OnePlus 9 phones come with a charger packed in the box?

Answer: Yes, all three varieties of the “OnePlus 9” lineup are packed with “chargers” in the box. Moreover, you can use it to charge other electronic devices including laptops with the packed charger.

Do all the three OnePlus 9 handsets support wireless charging?

Answer: Both the “OnePlus 9” and “OnePlus 9 Pro” got the “wireless” charging facility, 15W and 50W respectively. But, to fully utilize the 50W wireless-charging facility, you need to buy a special “charger” separately for $70.

“OnePlus 9R” got no “wireless-Charging” facility.

Do all the three handsets support both “sub6 5G” & “mmWave”?

Answer: Yes, Both 5G technology is supported by “OnePlus 9 Pro”. “OnePlus 9 pro” does not have any problem connecting on “T-Mobile” and “Verizon” networks for both 5G standards.

But, it may not connect to 5G standards on “AT&T” as “OnePlus 9 Pro” does not have the 5G certification at the time of launch. I am not sure whether it has already got the “certification” or not.

Do all the three OnePlus 9 handsets support IP ratings?

Answer: No, Only the “Premier” model “OnePlus 9” got the “IP68” ratings.
