- The OnePlus 9, 9 Pro, and 9R will come with a charger in the box
- OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro are expected to support fast charging at 65W, whereas the OnePlus 9R/ 9E will be limited to 33W
- The OnePlus 9 launch date is set for March 23rd
The OnePlus 9 series will come with a charger in the box, quelling concerns of fans worried about OnePlus going the Apple/ Samsung/ Xiaomi route by removing the charger from retail packaging. The information comes from OnePlus CEO Pete Lau, who told a concerned fan on the official OnePlus forums that the OnePlus 9 series would include a charging brick. That is a bit of a relief, considering that the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro are tipped to feature 65W fast charging, and not everyone will have a compatible charger lying around. It shouldn’t be long before we know for sure, as the OnePlus 9 launch date is set for March 23rd.
OnePlus 9 series specifications
As the top-of-the-line offering, the OnePlus 9 Pro will get the best hardware, starting with a 6.7-inch QHD+ display clocked at 120Hz. It will run a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G SoC along with 8GB of RAM. Expandable storage seems unlikely at this point. We already know that the OnePlus 9 Pro will come with four rear cameras and Hasselblad branding featuring a 48MP main camera, a 64MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a regular telephoto lens that offers 3.3x optical zoom, and a depth sensor. All of this will be powered by a 4,500mAh battery.
OnePlus 9 will serve as an incremental upgrade over the OnePlus 8T with its 6.55-inch FHD+ 120Hz display. Its choice of SoC, memory and storage should be the same as the Pro variant. Its camera array will be scaled down too, but its battery capacity is likely to be 4,500mAh.
The entry-level, the OnePlus 9E/ OnePlus 9R is essentially an OnePlus Nord refresh with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 SoC, 6.5-inch 90Hz FHD+ screen, 8GB RAM, and 128GB storage. Its camera and battery specs are unknown at this point.
