OnePlus 9 Release Date, Price, And Rumors, Everything You Need To Know

If you are an OnePlus fan, here is all information you need regarding the OnePlus 9 release date, specs, price, and rumors.

The OnePlus 9 is expected to be the company’s next top phone after the OnePlus 8T’s recent unveiling. The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro were great phones. However, they weren’t perfect ones. If you are an OnePlus fan, here is all information regarding the OnePlus 9 release date, specs, price, and rumors.

OnePlus 9 Release Date

OnePlus hasn’t hinted at any release information for its OnePlus 9. However, OnePlus, just like other phone makers, has its habit of launching new phones. So the OnePLus 9 is expected to come out around April or May next year.

Typically, OnePlus will tease its smartphones ahead of the launch. So maybe, we will hear something in March.

However, according to one source, the company will launch OnePlus 9 in March 2021, earlier than expected. The source didn’t specify an exact date though.

OnePlus 9 Price

In terms of price, it is difficult to speak since, with each successive OnePlus smartphone, the company is stepping closer into the premium pricing territory.

The OnePlus 8 cost $699. For more RAM and storage, the price jumped to $799. Meanwhile, the OnePlus 8 Pro costs $899 and $999 for a higher-end version.

Those smartphones are expensive. Of course, it is nowhere near the eye-watering costs of the Samsung Galaxy S series. However, it is still pricier compared to the old pricing of OnePlus phones.

OnePlus 9 Rumors

The first leak of the OnePlus 9 was about the codename called “Lemonade.” Is this a reference to a popular drink, the Adam Friedman song, the Beyonce album or is it just a random name chosen by OnePlus? Probably the latter.

The unofficial renders of the smartphone have also been leaked online. And it seems like the 2020 design will be refined even further in 2021. Through the renders, it looks as though the screen size is going to be bigger than the OnePlus 8T’s 6.55-inches display.

OnePlus 9 Specs

A benchmark that is believed to be of OnePlus 9 reveals that the smartphone will have a Snapdragon 875 chipset and 8GB of RAM, which is rather disappointing.

What we wish to see with the OnePlus 9

1. Wireless charging

The OnePlus 8 Pro comes with wireless charging. If you don’t go with the Pro, you will lose the feature. And for people who want wireless charging’s convenience but don’t have enough money to buy the Pro, this isn’t great.

So it would be great if the OnePlus 9 is equipped with wireless charging.

2. A telephoto lens

The 8 Pro has a telephoto camera while the OnePlus 8 doesn’t have. A telephoto lens means optical zoom pictures.

So we would like to see OnePlus bringing to the OnePlus 9 a telephoto as well as an ultra-wide camera.

3. A main camera with higher resolution

The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro both have 48MP main cameras. But there are companies that make smartphones with 64MP and 108MP cameras. So it would be great to see some improvement.

Of course, resolution is not the only factor deciding the quality of pictures. However, the pixel size is important. So we would love to see OnePlus equip its OnePLus 9 or just the Pro a high-res main camera or just a main primary snapper to have bigger pixels.

4. Two selfie cameras

The OnePlus Nord comes with two selfie cameras. That means it is possible to take standard photos or wide-angle ones. So we would like the OnePlus 9 to have this as well, as consumers will have different choices for selfies.

The second selfie camera wouldn’t need to be equipped with a wide field-of-view though.

5. A 4K screen for the Pro model

There have been only a few phones on the market that have 4K screens. All of them are from Sony, for example, the Sony Xperia 1 and Sony Xperia 1 II.

We understand that in most situations, a 4K display isn’t necessary. The OnePlus 8 Pro’s 2K is generally enough. However, a “Pro” should come with a more limited appeal.

With 5G, streaming movies, TV, and games in high resolution are not out of hand any more. So it would be great to see the first non-Sony phone to have a 4K screen.

6. Palm rejection technology

The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro don’t have palm rejection tech. For the OnePlus 9, we would love to see it have this tech.

Palm rejection technology makes sure that if you accidentally touch the phone screen’s curved edge, the device will instantly know that you don’t mean it and nothing will happen. This will stop you from accidentally opening apps or swiping between menus.

7. A larger battery

OnePlus equips its OnePLus 8 with a 4,300mAh battery and its OnePlus 8 Pro with a 4,510mAh battery.

It isn’t common to find phones with a 5,000mAh battery. If the phone comes with top specs, like a 4K screen and a 108Mp main sensor, it will need a big battery.

That is all the information that we have got regarding the OnePlus 8 release date, specs, price, and rumors. We will update this article if more information is available.
