Several photos have surfaced that show the OnePlus 9 in the flesh, giving us a tour of the design of the phone and confirming several of its specs, too. The photos shared by PhoneArena show a rectangular rear camera bump that's similar to the OnePlus 8T's, but with "Ultrashot" branding. There are two large cameras and a third sensor beneath them.
The back has curved sides and appears to be made of glass like the OnePlus 8T. While the branding on the back of the phone isn't a OnePlus logo, it is a special logo created by OnePlus for its prototype hardware.
Around front we can see the display, which is said to be a 6.55-inch 2400x1080 flat screen with 120Hz refresh rate and HDR support. There's a hole-punch selfie camera in the upper left corner of the screen.
On the right side of the OnePlus 9 is the company's trademark alert slider and a power button, while the left side is home to the volume buttons. There's a USB-C port for charging on the bottom plus a SIM slot that looks to have a rubber seal that could indicate some form of water resistance. Unfortunately, there's no 3.5mm headphone jack to be found.
Several other specs of the OnePlus 9 have been confirmed today, too. The phone is using a chipset referred to as "Lahaina", which is a codename for the Snapdragon 888. There's 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage included, too, though OnePlus could also offer a model with 12GB of RAM and more storage like it did with the OnePlus 8. Finally, the OnePlus 9 comes preloaded with Android 11.
Rumors say that the OnePlus 9 could be announced as soon as March and that it could bring two other models with it: the OnePlus 9E and OnePlus 9 Pro.
