After weeks of being teased, OnePlus fully unveiled the OnePlus 9 series earlier this week. The company announced a new partnership with Hasselblad that would help the company improve its cameras. Both the 9 and 9 Pro have a new 50MP ultrawide camera that sees significant improvement in low-light and nearly eliminates lens distortion. Though the two phones have different main camera sensors, they are both tuned by Hasselblad.
The new partnership has resulted in higher interest in OnePlus phones. That, and the company’s recent shakeup that’s pumped out several midrange devices has made raised awareness for the brand in global markets. In North America, the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro arrived at T-Mobile as the exclusive partner, though Verizon didn’t pick up the new series this year.
What do you think about the OnePlus 9 this year? Will you be picking up one of them or the OnePlus 9R or are you skipping out this year?
