OnePlus has unveiled two new handsets, the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro.
Though once upstart “flagship killers,” these smartphones are just plainly flagships with rather expensive price tags. The handsets offer Qualcomm’s highest level processor, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888, a 120Hz display refresh rate, an impressive camera setup, a lot of RAM and big batteries, especially with the OnePlus 9 Pro.
Brad Bennett, who reviewed the handset for MobileSyrup, found that the devices’ hardware was “near perfect.” Still, he encountered “buggy software” and said that “OnePlus’ recently slow update track record diminish what should be an even better experience.”
The OnePlus 9 Pro starts at $1,349 CAD for the 8GB RAM model with 128GB of storage, and the 256GB of storage variant with 12GB of RAM costs $1,499. And the OnePlus 9 starts with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for $999. The version with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage costs $1,149.
