It is no longer news that OnePlus will officially announce the OnePlus 9 series on March 23 while it will be launched in China on March 24. What’s news is that the models are already up for pre-order in China from March 9. OnePlus has now officially shared a poster that reveals that the number of reservations for the OnePlus 9 series has exceeded 2 million across all the retail channels where it is up for reservation.
This is said to be the highest number of reservations garnered by an upcoming smartphone in OnePlus’ entire history. There is no doubt that the number of innovative features that have been teased to be onboard the OnePlus 9 has contributed to this high level of interest in the model. Although all of the reservations won’t translate to actual sales, they are indicators that the device will be an extremely popular one.
The OnePlus 9 series promises several top-of-the-pack features in all aspects such as design, screen, camera, and performance. The series will emerge as the world’s first model to feature a Samsung LTPO display. The display will come with up to a 120Hz refresh rate but also supports automatic adjustments that can take down to as low as 1Hz. This will have a huge effect on the battery consumption of the device.
In terms of the camera, OnePlus had earlier announced that it is in cooperation with German camera maker Hasselblad which will see the company tune the OP9 series cameras. Although OnePlus had hinted earlier on that it won’t send a review unit to DXOMark, we expect the camera to be topnotch on all the models.
As for the performance aspect, the OnePlus 9 series, being a flagship series, will be powered by the Snapdragon 888 chipset paired with LPDDR5 RAM and the phone will pack UFS3.1 flash storage. It will also come with a new cooling system which can further improve its performance.
The OnePlus 9 series is expected to go on sale in China for the first time on March 30. That is after the official announcement in China on March 24.
