The OnePlus 9 Series is Now Available

Posted on April 2, 2021 by Paul Thurrott in Android, Hardware, Mobile with 2 Comments

Announced on March 23, the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro are now available for purchase, with a starting price of $729 in the U.S.

“The OnePlus 9 Series represents a key milestone for OnePlus flagship smartphones,” OnePlus founder, CEO, and Chief Product Officer Pete Lau said. “Co-developed with Hasselblad, the new Hasselblad Camera for Mobile will give users the ability to capture their own iconic moments with more accurate colors and premium image quality.”

The OnePlus 9 Series offers what the firm calls a top-tier flagship camera experience, and that’s been borne out over my past week of testing the new handsets. The Hasselblad Camera for Mobile system is a significant improvement over previous OnePlus flagships, offering an iPhone 12-like experience. And the new handsets offer all of the familiar advantages that OnePlus has long held over its more expensive rivals.

Those opting for the more expensive OnePlus 9 Pro—which starts at $969—will find an even better camera system with a telephoto lens with 3X optical zoom, a next-generation high refresh rate display, and crazy-fast wireless charging technology that’s even faster than the wired charging offered on the competition.

You can learn more about the OnePlus 9 Series from the OnePlus website.

    "capture their own iconic moments"

    I realize it's marketing, but "iconic"? C'mon. This kind of misuse of superlatives is yet another example of the "everyone gets a trophy" aspect of current societal trends.

    FYI - starting price for OnePlus Pro 9 in the US is $1069 since the 8/128 GB isn't offered in the US even direct from OnePlus. Only 12/256 GB version is offered in the US.
