OnePlus is all set to launch three flagship smartphones in India on March 23rd, called the OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro, and OnePlus 9R. This is the first time we get to see three OnePlus-branded smartphones launching together. The OnePlus Watch is also confirmed to launch alongside the phones. Several leaks and official teasers have told us a lot about the OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro, and OnePlus 9R specifications and designs. The first two devices will be quite similar, with the Pro variant offering top-of-the-line specifications. On the other hand, the OnePlus 9R will be an affordable flagship phone with an emphasis on gaming.
OnePlus 9 series prices in India
Little is known about the OnePlus 9 series price in India. Based on the spec sheet alone, we can expect the OnePlus 9R to retail around Rs 30,000. Similarly, the OnePlus 9 could start at around Rs 40,000. As the most expensive device in the series, the OnePlus 9 Pro could be priced around Rs 50,000 or higher. However, bear in mind that these are estimates. We’ll be sure to update you once we know more about their actual prices.
OnePlus 9 series specifications and design
Several reports have told us that the OnePlus 9 Pro will feature a 6.7-inch QHD+ LTPO display clocked at 120Hz. It should be able to adjust its dynamic dynamically too. It will run a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G SoC along with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. We already know that the OnePlus 9 Pro will come with four rear cameras and Hasselblad branding featuring a 48MP Sony IMX789 primary sensor, 50MP Sony IMX766 ultra-wide, 8MP telephoto lens that offers 3.3x optical zoom, and a 2MP depth sensor. All of this will be powered by a 4,500mAh battery that will support fast charging at 65W and 50W fast wireless charging.
OnePlus 9 will serve as an incremental upgrade over the OnePlus 8T with its 6.55-inch FHD+ 120Hz display. It is expected to feature three rear cameras, and will likely share some of the hardware with its better-specced cousin. It should run the same SOC, but the RAM and storage capacity could be cut down to 8GB and 128GB, respectively. An earlier leak told us that the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro would share the same battery.
This leaves us with the entry-level OnePlus 9R. We don’t know a lot about its hardware, but it is reasonable to assume that it could run on the Snapdragon 870 chipset or a mid-range SoC. Other OnePlus 9R specs could likely include a 6.5-inch 90Hz FHD+ screen, 8GB RAM, and 128GB storage. It could borrow some of the OnePlus 9/OnePlus 9 Pro camera lenses and run a 4,000mAh battery along with 30W fast charging.
