OnePlus will be launching its next-generation flagship smartphones under the OnePlus 9 series next week on 23rd March. Soon after that, the devices will up for sale in several regions. But potential buyers in Europe have a chance to get the device earlier than others.
Deutsche Telekom and OnePlus are partnering for a Blind Box Sale which will take place tomorrow. Users will be paying €1,111 (approximately $1,324) and they will get either OnePlus 9 or OnePlus 9 Pro along with a bunch of accessories.
The OnePlus 9 series smartphones are confirmed to get two years of official warranty. It remains to be seen if this is limited to Chinese users or applicable globally. The company decided to add an additional year of warranty as it found that most users replace their flagship smartphone after two years.

Under the hood, both the devices will come powered by the Snapdragon 888 mobile platform, coupled with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage.

The Hasselblad branded rear camera system of the OnePlus 9 5G includes a 48-megapixel Sony IMX789 primary camera, and a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 ultrawide snapper, and probably a telephoto lens. The Pro model has a quad-camera setup that includes a Sony IMX789 48-megapixel main camera, a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 superwide sensor, an 8-megapixel telephoto lens, and a 2-megapixel depth helper.
