OnePlus has launched its new flagship phones, the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro globally. While both phones bring some interesting features it's the OnePlus 9 Pro that offers a true flagship experience. The handset with upgraded cameras, display and performance among other things is now more on par with the premium flagship offerings from Apple and Samsung.
So let's take a look at the five best reasons why you should buy OnePlus 9 Pro?
Just like Samsung, OnePlus has opted for an LTPO display on the OnePlus 9 Pro with a 120hz refresh rate. LTPO displays allow variable refresh rates from 1hz to 120hz. So saving that crucial battery life by limiting the refresh rate for contents that don't require high refresh rates. The phone's display has a very low touch latency which is key for certain games the displays measure 6.8 inch with QHD+ resolutions with HDR10+ support and more. Basically, it has all the bells and whistles to go toe-to-toe with the industry's best offerings from Samsung.
OnePlus had been holding wireless charging on their smartphones thus far due to the sluggish charging speed but now that it has found the solution OnePlus has included the fastest wireless charging on a shipping phone that is 50W that can charge the phone from 0 to 100 in 43 minutes not only that the wired work charge is 65W which can do 0 to 100 in 29 minutes. The best part the wire charger is included right inside the box which is a breath of fresh air in a world where removing chargers is an environmental friendly trend.
If you've been following OnePlus for the past couple of weeks you know that OnePlus is touting its partnership with Hasselblad as something extraordinary that would change the landscape of smartphone photography but turns out that's nowhere near what we got in the actual product. Yes, the OnePlus 9 Pro takes better photos than its predecessor and all credit of that goes to a new big Sony sensor that they have put on this phone turns out Hasselblad is just assisting OnePlus with the color tone and judging from the samples of the OnePlus 9 Pro the colors look dull for my taste but hey that's subjective some like colorful photos some don't but the camera sample on this phone appears a little too dull but overall there is an improvement in camera quality compared to last year but it still falls short compared to the Samsung and Apples and even Pixels of the world.
The phone also has a reverse wireless charging with a 4500 milliamp battery. It's not ideal to charge other phones but it's a handy feature if you have an accessory like a bluetooth earphone or a smartwatch.
The 9 Pro comes with a snapdragon 888 chipset worldwide which is the latest 5-nm chipset.
Things like IP68 rating, fast UFS 3.1, storage up to 12GB of ram, 8K video, 4K at 120 fps are all there to go for the OnePlus 9 Pro.
