Rumors and leaks surrounding the upcoming OnePlus 9 series have been around for a while now. The leaks and images of the upcoming devices have been mostly about the vanilla OnePlus 9. It can be seen in the images below that the display is flat and the camera system on the back only has three cameras. Due to the scarcity of leaks, many industry insiders were speculating about the release of the OnePlus 9 pro.
However, it turns out the device exists and a whole bunch of images of the device has been leaked. According to a new video of Dave2D a content creator on Youtube, someone on his Discord server claimed that he had quite a few images of the OnePus 9 Pro. Upon further investigating, the alleged leaker shared the images with Dave Lee. The images reveal a working device that is probably running on pre-release software. The video is available below for your viewing pleasure.
A curved display can be clearly seen on one of the images revealing that it will follow the footsteps of the OnePlus 8 Pro. Other than this, it seems OnePlus is going in an opposite direction compared to the industry. The back of the device may support a glossy finish compared to the matt finish that its predecessor, the newer iPhones, and the high-end Galaxy devices flaunt. Snapdragon 888 SoC will most definitely be there, but the images reveal that that one of the variants of the device will have 11GB RAM and 256GB of internal memory. Take this information with a grain of salt since the 256GB version of the OnePlus 8Pro offered 12GB of RAM.
Coming to the camera hardware, it seems OnePlus has partnered with Hasselblad to improve its overall camera experience. Hasselblad is a Swedish manufacturer of camera hardware. The camera system comes with four lenses including a standard, ultrawide, telephoto, and macro(?) lens. The telephoto lens may support 3.3x of optical zoom compared to 3x offered by the telephoto lens in the predecessor.
Lastly, these could be the images of a prototype device but there’s no way of knowing the authenticity of these leaks.
