OnePlus today officially unveiled its flagship smartphones OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro. The real highlight of both models was the Hassleblad camera – made under the supervision of the specialists of the Swedish company. However, there are plenty of other innovations.

OnePlus 9 in terms of design is noticeably different from the models OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 8 – the vertical camera has been replaced with a block shifted to the left, similar to some Honor and Samsung models. The OnePlus 9 has a curved display with a metal frame, while the OnePlus 9 has a flat screen with a carbon fiber reinforced polymer frame. The coating on it creates a feeling of metal, but this is just a feeling, not real metal.

The younger model has a 6.55-inch AMOLED flat screen with Full HD + resolution with a frame rate of 120 Hz. The older model has a screen not only larger – 6.7 inches, but also with a higher QHD + resolution. This panel is manufactured using LTPO technology and supports frame rate adjustment in the range from 1 to 120 Hz. Both smartphones support HDR10 +.

Both OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro are based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC. LPDDR5 RAM – 8 or 12 GB, UFS 3.1 flash memory – 128 or 256 GB. There is no SSD like in the Black Shark 4 presented today.

The OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro support dual SIM, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC and Wi-Fi 6, and are equipped with stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support. The operating system is Android 11 with OxygenOS 11. The smartphones are backed by a two-year warranty, two major Android updates (Android 12 and Android 13) and three years of security updates.

Both models are equipped with 4500 mAh batteries with support for Warp Charge 65T fast charging with a capacity of 65 W. The real surprise was the support for wireless charging in the basic OnePlus 9 (in the European and US versions) – according to rumors, such a system should have been only in the OnePlus 9 Pro. The wireless charging power of the OnePlus 9 is 15W, the OnePlus 9 Pro is 50W.

And now about the cameras – in comparison with their predecessors, they really have become better. Needless to say, the OnePlus 9 Pro has the best set of sensors and lenses.

The main module of the main camera of this model is represented by a 48 megapixel Sony IMX789 sensor and an F / 1.8 aperture lens with optical stabilization. This module can capture RAW images with 12-bit color representation and record 4K video at 120 fps or 8K at 30 fps.

The second module is represented by a Sony IMX766 sensor with a resolution of 50 MP optical format 1 / 1.56 inches and an ultra-wide-angle FreeForm lens – photos taken with it should do without distortion at the edges of the frame. Unusually, the same module is responsible for shooting in macro mode. True, the focusing distance is too big here – 4 cm.

There is no periscope module, but there is an 8-megapixel sensor with a telephoto lens providing 3.3x optical zoom and 30x hybrid zoom. Of course, this module provides optical stabilization. And finally, the fourth module is a 2-megapixel monochrome camera, which, in conjunction with the main module, allows you to take high-quality black and white photos.

The camera app also came with some innovations. For example, there is a Hasselblad Pro mode that mirrors the Hasselbald camera interface. There is also a special Nightscape night mode.

The OnePlus 9 camera is simpler. The module with optical zoom is excluded from the design, and instead of the latest Sony IMX789 sensor, a simpler module is used – Sony IMX689, but also 48-megapixel, with support for 12 bit RAW and optical stabilization. But this camera no longer supports 4K video recording at 120 fps, the maximum is 60 fps.

As for the front cameras, both use 16MP HDR-capable sensors.

Pre-orders for the OnePlus 9 will start on March 26, with real sales starting on April 2. The prices have already been announced, and immediately for the markets of the USA, Europe and India. We are interested in European ones. The base OnePlus 9 with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of flash is priced at 700 euros in Europe, the version with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of flash is 800 euros. OnePlus 9 Pro with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory is priced at 900 euros, and for the top-end OnePlus 9 Pro with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of flash memory they ask for exactly 1000 euros.

Specialists of the popular iFixit resource, specializing in the repair of various electronics, disassembled the new Apple Watch Series 7 smartwatch and shared the results with the public.

Firstly, the watch scored 6 points on a 10-point scale of maintainability and generally positive reviews for its modular design, easy access to the screen and battery. Experts also praised Apple for keeping the Apple Watch Series 7 compatible with previous generations of bands, right up to the very first original Apple Watch.

As mentioned several times, the main difference between this device and the Series 6 is the enlarged display. Disassembling iFixit revealed that the watch uses an OLED panel with an integrated touchscreen (on-cell touch), this technology debuted in the iPhone 13.

According to experts, this is an unusual approach for Apple, which usually prefers to experiment with new screen technologies on watches, and then implement them on smartphones – as happened with OLED, variable refresh rate and the function of “always on” screen.

IFixit partnered with three former Apple engineers to disassemble the Apple Watch Series 7. As they noted, it was the new display that could cause delays in production and force the company to release the device later than it would like.

When Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 7 in September, it didn’t announce a specific release date. Former Apple engineers said this is usually indicative of delays, and the most likely cause is a manufacturing glitch caused by watch displays. They explained, “The screens have some of the most complex supply chains and assembly processes in the industry.”

The iFixit experts also found that the Apple Watch Series 7 has a larger battery compared to its predecessor. However, this did not lead to an increase in battery life, since the larger screen consumes more power.
