The next smartphone from the popular phone manufacturing company, OnePlus won’t be OnePlus 9 — at least for now. But this doesn’t mean, the phone is not in the development. The makers are already on board to introduce yet another innovative offering from the renowned global company.
As for now, the next OnePlus phone will be OnePlus 8T and OnePlus 8T Pro. Even a few more budget-friendly phones like rumoured OnePlus Nord Lite, onePlus Aurora, or OnePlus Clover will hit the market before OnePlus 9. As for the moment, there are a few to none rumours or leaks about OnePlus’s next flagship phone.
OnePlus will most probably release the OnePlus 9 as the main phone in 2021. When OnePlus 8 and 8 plus were released, there were some places where the phones could be improved. Now, the smartphone manufacturer is certainly working on to make the new OnePlus phone more perfect and more improved than the previous one.
OnePlus 9 will feature Qualcomm’s next-generation chipset, Snapdragon 875 SoC.
The reports claim that Qualcomm’s upcoming chipset will debut in the premium phones in 2021, which makes OnePlus 9 a perfect candidate to launch with the new next-gen chipset. This will most certainly increase the pricing of the upcoming OnePlus 9. OnePlus 8 is the most expensive OnePlus phone made until now. So with the new chipset, you can expect a $100 or $200 increment in the price of OnePlus 9.
The initial leak suggests that the upcoming phone will have a 5000mAh battery on the non-Pro model, while the Pro model will have even more. Reports suggest that the phone will adopt OLED displays with 120Hz refresh rates, and the pro model will probably feature a 4K display. A phone with 12 GB of RAM and 512GB internal storage looks reliable at the moment.
OnePlus 9: Release Date
OnePlus’s flagship phone has always been consistent regarding the release date, which generally takes place in May/April each year. If we consider this habit, then we can expect the OnePlus 9 by April 2021. However, looking at the things how this year has been, we can probably expect a month or two delay in the release of the new OnePlus phone.
