The stunning 120 Hz QHD+ display incorporates next-generation screen technology to improve battery life and gaming performance. Warp Charge 65T and Warp Charge 50 Wireless take charging to a new level, dramatically reducing time spent charging your device. Powered by the latest Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 888 mobile platform, the enhanced performance ensures that the OnePlus 9 Series is ready to handle the most demanding tasks with ease.
Hasselblad Camera for Mobile
The OnePlus 9 Pro’s 48MP main camera features a custom-designed IMX789 sensor, co-engineered with Sony, with an impressively large 1/1.4” sensor. The result is exceptional imaging capability, with leading technologies including 2×2 on-chip lens (OCL), 12-bit RAW, dual native ISO, and DOL-HDR. It offers faster focus speeds, four-times more color information for greater color accuracy, cleaner daytime and night shots, and reduced motion blur in videos.
The OnePlus 9 Pro’s unparalleled 50MP ultra-wide camera uses a 1/1.56” Sony IMX766 sensor, which ensures enhanced image quality and lower noise. Its pioneering Freeform Lens uses a series of unique curves to correct the incoming light, bringing distortion at the edge of photos down to around 1%. The ultra-wide camera also allows you to capture high quality macro photos, with the ability to focus from as close as 4 cm away from your subject.
The 8MP telephoto camera on the OnePlus 9 Pro offers 3.3x (77mm) zoom with OIS to reduce blur, maxing out at 30x digital zoom. Also, a dedicated monochrome camera works together with the OnePlus 9 Pro’s main camera to add detail and layering to black and white photos, while a new tilt-shift simulates the special miniature effect of a tilt-shift lens for more creative photos.
The OnePlus 9 Pro’s main camera features 16-times the pixel count of standard 1080p for high-quality videos. It can shoot at 4K 120fps, giving you more creative possibilities in shooting video and editing, with DOL-HDR ensuring you always get the subject in clear view in backlit environments.

The new Hasselblad Pro Mode offers incredibly accurate and natural color for a solid foundation for post-editing. It has been revamped with a new user interface based on Hasselblad’s image processing software to give professional-level users a unique Hasselblad look and feel.
Fluid Display 2.0
The OnePlus 9 Pro’s Fluid Display 2.0 boasts a new generation of advanced mobile display technology, integrating low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) technology, the most advanced backplane technology used in high-end OLED displays, and lightning-fast touch response for gaming. LTPO technology enables the OnePlus 9 Pro’s display to automatically adjust the refresh rate from 120 Hz all the way down to 1 Hz to match the current user scenario.
With cutting-edge 5G, the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 888 mobile platform delivers lightning-fast speeds and unprecedented power. With 25% faster CPU performance and 35% faster graphics rendering plus the new 5nm process node, the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 888 offers significant power-savings, allowing for extensive usage on a single charge.
5G connectivity is powered by the fully integrated X60 5G Modem-RF System. A third-generation global 5G solution, the X60 is world’s first 5nm baseband architecture delivering faster, low-latency 5G mobile speeds using 5G carrier aggregation across FDD and TDD. Also, the X60 reduces power consumption and heat, improving performance and battery life in the OnePlus 9 Pro.
The OnePlus 9 Pro comes with both LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage to deliver the fastest and smoothest experience yet on a OnePlus flagship device.
Warp Charge 65T delivers a day’s power in just 15 minutes – and can charge from 1-100% in just 29 minutes. The OnePlus 9 Pro achieves these speeds using a custom 4,500 mAh battery with an improved dual-cell design to reduce internal resistance and heating while charging. This gives the OnePlus 9 Pro the ability to charge at a higher output for an extended period.
The OnePlus 9 offers a similarly powerful flagship experience as the OnePlus 9 Pro, with a full 120 Hz display, Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 888 mobile platform, next-generation 5G connectivity, Warp Charge 65T as well as the powerful Hasselblad Camera for Mobile for an all-around fast and smooth smartphone experience.

Co-created with the OnePlus community, OxygenOS 11 brings speed, smoothness and customization to the OnePlus 9 Series for the most intuitive, efficient and personalized Android experience and a simple yet bold design that makes navigation easier even with one hand.
The new Turbo Boost 3.0 memory optimization enables you to keep more than 25% more apps open in the background than before. OnePlus achieved this with the help of RAM compression, which makes data on the RAM smaller, and virtual RAM, which turns phone storage into RAM so your phone can have more physical RAM to work with.
The OnePlus Watch is the latest extension of the company’s strategic plan to offer the OnePlus experience to more users around the world with our growing portfolio of best-in-class products offering a burdenless user experience. As the company’s first global wearable device, the OnePlus Watch aims to integrate into the daily digital life of OnePlus users, offering stylish design, seamless connection, smart fitness tracking and incredibly long battery life.

The 46mm case is crafted from quality stainless steel, with 2.5D curved glass on the face a subtle yet radiant glossy CD pattern on the display bezel for an added touch of class.
OnePlus Watch Cobalt Limited Edition
Complementing the minimalist aesthetic of the Classic Edition, the OnePlus Watch Cobalt Limited Edition takes premium design a step further with materials traditionally found only on luxury watches. The watch case of the Limited Edition is crafted from cobalt alloy, a unique hypoallergenic material that is twice as hard and more corrosion resistant than traditional stainless steel. Meanwhile, the watch face is made from specially-treated sapphire glass, with a Mohs rating of 9, for enhanced brightness and exceptional scratch resistance.
The OnePlus Watch seamlessly connects to your digital life, helping you immerse yourself in every moment of your life. It conveniently allows you to view and respond to notifications, make and answer phone calls, play music and take photos. The OnePlus Watch comes with 4 GB of standalone storage (2 GB for actual use), enough for over 500 songs, and is compatible with most Bluetooth earbuds for wireless music playback on the go. It also connects with the OnePlus TV, acting as a smart remote control that can lower volume when a call comes in or even turn off the TV before when it detects that you have fallen asleep.
Powerful Battery, Proactive Fitness
The OnePlus Watch gives users exceptional battery life quickly, delivering all-day power in just five minutes or a week’s power in just 20 minutes.
