OnePlus will launch its two new flagships, the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro, early next year. A photo of the first model has just appeared online, and it may disappoint many fans of the brand.
This time again, OnePlus would therefore intend to decline its new flagship in two different models, with a normal version on one side and a “pro” version on the other.
For the moment, this is the first that interests us.
A OnePlus 9 that would ignore the periscope zoom
Earlier in the week, a user has indeed published on Weibo photos presenting the device from all angles … and in particular from the back, with the visible photo module.
These images confirm previous renderings, but they also allow us to make an observation: the OnePlus 9 will be equipped in all and for all two traditional sensors, with a third sensor with unknown characteristics.
Two traditional sensors, therefore, and two focal lengths. Perfectly conventional focal lengths since the photos do not suggest even the shadow of a periscope zoom.
A magnification in 2 or 3 times max?
And precisely, this night, the information was confirmed by another source, and more precisely by a Chinese blogger. According to him, OnePlus is not yet ready to switch to a periscope zoom and the brand would therefore like to stick to simple telephoto lenses. By extension, this also means that if the OnePlus 9 or the OnePlus 9 Pro are really going to offer optical zoom, then the latter should stick to a magnification of 2 or 3 times maximum.
We must admit that this is a bit disappointing, especially when we know that the OnePlus have always been a little behind on the question of the photo despite often very innovative functions. We will think in particular of this famous colorimetric sensor which has so much in the headlines.

Now, for the rest, the OnePlus 9 should hit very hard with beautiful panels and, above all, with a Snapdragon 888. On the other hand, we will have to wait for the official announcement to know a little more about their technical sheet.
