To recap, the OnePlus 9 devices promise top-tier flagship cameras along with high refresh rate displays and fast wireless charging.
The camera system in particular is worthy of notice. OnePlus and Hasselblad jointly calibrated the OnePlus 9 smartphone sensors to work around colour performance limitations that are usually present in smartphone camera systems.
The result is a new 'Natural Colour Calibration' standard, which claimed at bringing more "perceptually accurate and natural-looking colours to photos”.
The OnePlus 9 series comes in two variants: the base OnePlus 9, and the higher-end OnePlus 9 Pro. The 9 Pro carries the more premium camera setup, with a 48MP main camera sporting a custom-designed IMX789 sensor, co-engineered with Sony.
This is coupled with a 50Mp ultra-wide shooter, 8MP telephoto camera and a 2MP monochrome camera.
Both the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro will be available for purchase. The former will be priced at RM3,699 and can be snapped up at OnePlus’ Shopee page.
The OnePlus 9 Pro, however, is available as part of a Fans Special Gift Bundle, which is priced at RM4,299. This bundle comes with the OnePlus Bud, WarpCharge 65W Power Adapter, WarpCharge 50W Wireless Charger, and an OnePlus 9 Pro Karbon Bumper Case. This will be available on the brand’s Lazada page.
OnePlus also announced that its first global wearable device, the OnePlus Watch, will be available in Malaysia on May 22. The device will retail for RM699 at selected authorised stores, available only in Midnight Black option.
