OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro, the new flagship phones from OnePlus, are in. Both phones are equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage and a 4,500 mAh battery. The OnePlus 9 has a 6.55 inch OLED display (2400 × 1080, 402 ppi, 120 Hz) and the Pro has a 6.7 inch OLED display (3168 × 1440, 513 ppi, 120 Hz). In addition to its larger and higher resolution screen, the OnePlus 9 Pro also offers faster recharging (less than half an hour on a fully discharged battery!), IP68 water resistance, mmWave support, a better camera and an additional 3x telephoto lens. Though the cameras are by the prestigious Swedish brand Hasselblad, the first testers report rather inconsistent results. Both devices weigh almost the same — around 195 g. Prices start at US$ 729 (CA$ 999) for the OnePlus 9 and US$ 970 (CA$ 1350) for the OnePlus 9 Pro, which is US$ 30 less than the Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus. All devices are available for pre-order March 26, and shipment will begin April 2.
