OnePlus 9 series smartphones may be equipped with Leica cameras, according to a new leak. This could mean that the Chinese smartphone maker’s next series of phones could achieve significant improvements in terms of photography, compared to previous generation phones. Previous reports also suggest that the company is particularly focusing on cameras for upcoming series. An image of the alleged OnePlus 9 smartphone leaked online shows a triple rear camera setup with two large sensors and a smaller sensor.
According to a tweet from tipster Teme, OnePlus is partnering with Leica for OnePlus 9 series cameras. In another tweet (https://twitter.com/RODENT950/status/1339642711775850499), the whistleblower mentions the names of some smartphone manufacturers and camera companies they have collaborated with. This list included OnePlus and Leica. Earlier this week, live images were leaked presumably showing the OnePlus 9 5G smartphone. The image showed the rectangular rear camera configuration with two modules with two large sensors and a third smaller sensor. The flash can also be seen inside the rectangular camera on which “Ultrashot” is written.

The OnePlus 9 is said to be equipped with a 6.55-inch Full HD + display (1,080×2,400 pixels), a refresh rate of 120Hz, and a 20: 9 aspect ratio. It is also expected to ship with the HDR support. The smartphone can house a 4,500mAh battery and run Android 11 out-of-the-box.
Another report earlier this month claims that the OnePlus 9 series will have the OnePlus 9 Pro, OnePlus, and OnePlus 9E watered down. OnePlus 9 Pro has been designed to offer an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. To date, OnePlus hasn’t revealed anything about the upcoming OnePlus 9 series.
