The OnePlus 9 Pro gets the best cameras as expected. Its main camera is a custom Soy IMX789 48MP sensor with an f/1.8 aperture and OIS. It is packed with Digital Overlap HDR (DOL-HDR), 2×2 on-chip lens (OCL), and dual ISO. The camera can shoot 12-bit RAW images which captures a lot more colors than a regular camera. It can also record in 4K at 120fps and in 8K at 30fps.

Along with the main camera is a Sony IMX766 ultrawide camera with a freeform lens that removes the distortion at the edges of ultrawide angle photos. It can also shoot 4CM macro photos. OnePlus doesn’t join the periscope camera trend but instead settles for an 8MP telephoto camera with OIS that brings 3.3x optical zoom and up to 30x digital zoom. There is also a 2MP monochrome camera that works with the main sensor so you can shoot in black and white.
