OnePlus is never known for its mobile photography prowess. Well, that has changed, or so we heard, with the new OnePlus 9 Series smartphones featuring Hasselblad Camera for Mobile.

Two flavors of the 9 were revealed: the OnePlus 9 Pro and the OnePlus 9. Whichever you choose you go with, you will be treated to flagship SoC and Hasselblad Camera for Mobile

Speaking of which… one of the major highlights is the camera system that is co-developed with the legendary Swedish camera maker, Hasselblad. It looks like OnePlus is finally getting serious with mobile photography.

What Hasselblad brings to the table includes natural color calibration and maximum control inspired by the camera maker’s professional camera via the new Pro mode.

As far as imaging on the 9 Pro goes, it boasts a quad-camera setup that comprises of a 48 MP OIS-equipped custom Sony sensor camera, a 50 MP ultra-wide camera, an 8 MP telephoto camera with OIS and a monochrome lens camera.

The 50 MP item further touts Freeform Lens that promised to deliver “unsurpassed wide-angle detail and clarity,” and very importantly, little to no distortion – the first in mobile photography.

The same distortion-free 50 MP can also be found on the non-Pro model, along side two other cameras: a 48 MP Sony IMX689 sensor camera and a Monochrome Lens camera.

Hasselblad Camera for Mobile is not the only “first” on the new OnePlus. It is also the first phone to support 4K 120fps video recording. Snazzy.

Beyond that, there is also the new Fluid Display 2.0 with dynamic refresh rate from 1 Hz all the way up to 120 Hz and Hyper Touch technology, LTPO display (for that low latency touch display), and of course, the fastest SoC Qualcomm has to offer, Snapdragon 888.

Keep going for a rundown of the specifications of each model.
