The OnePlus 9 will have at least two major camera upgrades over the OP8

The base OnePlus 9 model will step up its ultra-wide sensor with a higher resolution.

What you need to know

  • New details of the OnePlus 9 suggest a 48MP Sony IMX main camera sensor.
  • A 48MP ultra-wide sensor will accompany the main sensor, with a third unknown sensor.
  • A live image reportedly shows the triple camera module up-close in a green color variant.

As the year nears its end, rumors of the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro are beginning to ramp up. Recent CAD renders revealed some details of the OnePlus 9, with a design that shares elements from the OnePlus 8T and Samsung's Galaxy Note 20 series smartphones. A triple camera setup was shown protruding from the rear, but details of those cameras remained elusive. Now we may have an idea of what those cameras are packing.

According to a report from 91mobiles, the OnePlus 9 could feature a 48MP main sensor that would achieve a 12MP output. The source claims that the sensor could be Sony's IMX689 which is also featured on the OnePlus 8 Pro, but it's unclear at this moment. Additionally, the second camera is tipped to be an ultra-wide sensor with a 48MP resolution, similar to the 8 Pro and a sizeable upgrade from the 16MP unit found on the 8T.

91mobiles managed to acquire a live image of the camera module, which seems to hint at a green color variant for the OnePlus 9.

The rumored details of the OnePlus 9 were given some credence when OnePlus tipster Max J tweeted that the reports from 91mobiles appear accurate, retracting on his previous criticisms. Details related to the third sensor are unknown, but it's likely to be some sort of auxiliary unit like a depth sensor or monochrome that's found on many of OnePlus's smartphones.

The OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro are expected to launch in March of 2021. While the base model is rumored to have a flat display, recent leaks of the 9 Pro claim that the premium model will likely stick to a curved one with an additional camera sensor at the rear. We should expect both to feature Qualcomm's soon-to-be-announced Snapdragon 875 5G chip, along with Warp Charge 65.

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases.

The Galaxy Watch 4 is coming soon — here's everything you need to know

Samsung's Galaxy-brain play: leaving Tizen behind for Wear OS. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, one of the best Android smartwatches , may have only just launched in November 2020, but the latest rumors out of South Korea suggest the company may already be developing its replacement — with some big changes and upgrades in the works meant to topple Apple from its smartwatch throne. There's no confirmation whether Samsung's 2021 smartwatch will be named the "Galaxy Watch 4" or adopt a new name entirely. However, we know that this new watch will run the new version of Wear OS, which would have a big impact on app support and Android phone connectivity.

Details are fairly scarce so far, but we've scrounged up every known leak about specs, design leaks, and pricing, along with everything else we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4.
