  • OnePlus 9 Pro could get a curved display at launch.
  • OnePlus 9 could offer a flat 6.55-inch panel.
  • OnePlus 9 Pro is tipped to get a 4500mAh battery.

OnePlus 9 series phones are widely tipped for launch in mid-March this year, and ahead of their launch, leaks and rumours have already started to give us a hint about what we can expect from the upcoming OnePlus flagships.

The latest leak about the phones comes courtesy of Chinese tipster Digital Chat Station who has revealed the display and other key specs of the upcoming OnePlus 9 smartphone. As per the tipster, the OnePlus 9 will come with a 6.55-inch flat display with FHD+ resolution and support for 120Hz refresh rate. The OnePlus 9 Pro is tipped to get a bigger 6.78-inch curved display with QHD+ resolution, with the phone's display set to run at 120Hz refresh rate. The two phones are also tipped to get displays that come with hole-punch cutout in the top-left corner.

But that's not all, the tipster also claims that the phones will come with a Snapdragon 888 chipset and a 4,500mAh battery with 65W fast charging. Although, there is no clarity if both the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro will get the same battery pack, or if the information is for the OnePlus 9 Pro.

As per another report, we have also been made aware today that the OnePlus 9 series will be missing out on a periscope lens. This information comes courtesy of Max Jambor who claims the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro will not get a periscope camera.

However, the decision to not include a periscope camera will see the OnePlus 9 series instead use better cameras than its predecessor. Previously, we've seen reports about the OnePlus 9's camera module which is being said to be heroed by a 50-megapixel lens. As per a leak on SlashLeaks, the phone will feature a three-camera system, the mainstay of which will be a 50-megapixel Ultra Vision wide-angle camera with f/1.9 aperture.

The leak also reveals that this lens will be coupled with a 20-megapixel Cine Camera, an ultrawide lens with f/1.8 aperture. As for the third lens in the setup, there will be an OIS assisted 12-megapixel telephoto camera with autofocus and an f/3.4 aperture.

Reports also say that the phone maker is set to partner with Leica for the OnePlus 9 series. As per a well-known tipster, Teme(@RODENT950) multiple phone makers are partnering with Leica to bring their cameras on their phones, and apparently, one of them is the OnePlus.
