- OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro will both feature wireless charging support
- OnePlus 9 Pro is tipped to come with 45W fast wireless charging
- The phone will also support reverse wireless charging
OnePlus 9 series is expected to launch in March with flagship specifications that include the all-new Snapdragon 888 chipset. The lineup is expected to include the vanilla OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro (with rumours about a OnePlus 9E model as well). The rumour about the upcoming flagships is that they will have wireless charging support, which was first introduced on the OnePlus 8 Pro last year. Tipster Max Jambor claims the OnePlus 9 Pro will support up to 45W fast wireless charging support, an upgrade from the 30W on the OnePlus 8 Pro. The phone is also said to pack reverse wireless charging that lets the phone charge another smartphone or accessories such as wireless headphones.
Max Jambor says the vanilla OnePlus 9 will also have wireless charging support, but he could not specify the charging speed. However, 91mobiles exclusively revealed that the OnePlus 9 will get support for 30W wireless charging and the device will support reverse wireless charging too. While these are interesting additions to make the upcoming OnePlus phones truly flagships, they may also increase the pricing.
Both the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro are expected to come with the Snapdragon 888 5G chipset, 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, and a Fluid AMOLED display. They’re likely to run on Android 11-based OxygenOS custom skin on top. The standard OnePlus 9 is said to get triple cameras at the back, while the OnePlus 9 Pro may have quad-cameras. OnePlus 9 is said to come with a 4,500mAh battery and 65W fast wired charging solution. The Pro model may get a slightly larger battery and similar charging speeds. Both the models are expected to feature a punch-hole display for the selfie camera and an in-display fingerprint sensor for security. OnePlus is said to have partnered with Leica for the first time for cameras.
