Over the past few days, leaks about the upcoming OnePlus 9 have started to pick up the pace. While many of these have revolved around the design and specifications the device, a new one has revealed interesting information about the cameras it will come with it.
As per a new leak, OnePlus will be partnering with Leica for the coming OnePlus 9 series. A well-known tipster, Teme(@RODENT950) has revealed that multiple phone makers are partnering with Leica to bring their cameras on their phones. He even went on to post a list that includes Huawei for Leica and OnePlus.
While there is no guarantee that the company is actually working on bringing Leica branded cameras to their phones, but a partnetrship such as this would’nt be too farfetched as the company in the past has hinted at improving performance of their cameras with the OnePlus 9 series. And as such, a partnership like this would be an easy way to go about things.
In fact, OnePlus’s CEO, Pete Lau, had even hinted at the same during an interview with Input Mag. Interestingly, he had also mentioned that OnePlus is looking at bringing improvements not only to its flagship series but also to the next set of Nord devices.
Earlier, we’ve had leaks that have revealed some details about the device, including the design of the phone. Previously, live images of the OnePlus 9 leaked by Phone Arena show that the device could bring a similar design to the existing OnePlus 8T which comes with a rear camera set-up that’s the shape of a rectangular module. The new camera module is shown to come with an “ultra shot” branding. However, the report claims that the “ultra shot” branding may not appear in the final version of the smartphone.
Interestingly, the leaked prototype also doesn’t flaunt the OnePlus logo as it is said to be a pre-production unit. Apart from this, the live images show the SIM tray, USB-C port, and dual speakers at the bottom with the power button on the right side of the device, while the volume rockers are shown to be on the left. The rear camera module is shown to come with two-three sensors and cause some bump on the back of the device.
As per the leaked renders, the OnePlus devices will feature flat displays on the OnePlus 9 and curved on the OnePlus 9 Pro. Both phones will come with a punch-hole design and a camera bump on the back which appear to house a rectangular camera enclosure similar in design to the one to the one featured on the OnePlus 8T.
