If you’re looking to get your hands on the latest OnePlus phone at the best price, you’ve come to the right place. The OnePlus 9 Pro has been on sale now March 31st, followed by the standard OnePlus 9 on April 26. We track the best prices on contract and without SIM on both phones here.
It’s worth noting, those trading on their old phone towards a new OnePlus 9 or 9 Pro can now get Google Stage Premier Edition for free (more on that below)
A little background on the OnePlus 9 series …
The OnePlus 9 phone was released on March 23, just one day after competitor Xiaomi released its budget Little X3 Pro and Little F3, even starting sales on the new premium flagship I 11 – the closest rival to the 9 Series. The £ 11 Mi Mi shares the next-generation Snapdragon 888 chip with OnePlus 9 phones, with a 120Hz refresh rate.
However, the OnePlus 9 upstages with Warp Charge 65T – this is 65W fast charging cable which, in theory, should recharge the 900 Pro’s 4500mAh battery in just 29 minutes. You also get 50W wireless charging speed like Mi 11.
But OnePlus does show another trick up its sleeve. Thanks to the company’s partnership with Swedish camera brand Hasselblad – manufacturer of the equipment used to photograph the Apollo moon landing – the biggest advancement of the 9 Series is expected in the color accuracy of its cameras.
The collaboration involves OnePlus adopting Hasselblad’s color standards with its own computational photography to create a new internal standard “Calibrating natural color with Hasselblad”. OnePlus promises that the colors should be close enough to what you can see with your eyes.
As for the cameras themselves, both OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro boast ultra-wide main sensors of 50 MP and 48MP, but you can see the full spec sheet and what to expect from the two phones in our OnePlus 9 news round-up.
