After six months of its launch in the international market, the OnePlus 9 Pro is finally up for grab in Nepal. One of the main highlights of the phone has to be the Hasselblad camera, which is also present in the vanilla OnePlus 9, but the Pro variant gets the best of it.
The primary camera at the back has Sony’s 48MP IMX789 sensor — it’s a large 1/1.43″ sensor that comes with 1.12 µm pixels. It brings the latest camera innovation to OnePlus’ phones like dual native ISO, Digital Overlap HDR (DOL-HDR), and 2×2 on-chip lens (OCL), plus the OIS as expected.
The sensor outputs 12-bit RAW images, while the dedicated Hasselblad Pro mode in the camera app will allow you the adjust your images to give them a natural look and feel. The main sensor is also capable of shooting 8K video at 30fps and 4K at 120fps. There’s also a 2MP black and white camera to aid with monochrome shots.
Meanwhile, the ultrawide shooter has Sony’s 50MP IMX766 sensor. It’s a 1/1.56″ sensor that is placed behind a freeform lens, offering much less distortion near the edges to 1% (in comparison to 10-20% on a normal lens). The camera also comes with an autofocus system allowing you to capture macro photos from a distance of 4cm.
There’s no periscope zoom lens here, instead, the OnePlus 9 Pro comes with a standard telephoto lens. It has 3.3x optical zoom, which is a bit better than the OnePlus 8 Pro’s 3x lens.
Now on to the front, the phone comes with Fluid Display 2.0, the first of its kind on a OnePlus phone. The LTPO panel sits at 6.7-inch diagonally and consumes less than 50% power in general. This is thanks to the adaptive display that comes down from 120Hz refresh rate all the way to 1Hz.
At the helm of its heart is the Snapdragon 888 chipset which is as powerful as it can be in terms of mobile computing, while the memory configuration comes in 8GB/12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB/256GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
Pushing this powerful chipset to its limit will surely generate heat to some extent, and for that OnePlus has put the new Cool Play setup much like the 8T cooling solution, but this one has a larger vapor chamber, thicker graphite sheet, and more copper foil for more efficiency in dissipating the heat.
The phone comes with a 4,500mAh battery out of the box alongside a 65W charging adapter. The phone also supports 50W wireless charging and has an in-display fingerprint scanner for biometric security.
