The next OnePlus flagship, the OnePlus 9 5G, has emerged in CAD renders a couple of months ago. It revealed that the device will feature a flat display and triple rear camera cutout similar to the OnePlus 8T. The folks over at PhoneArena have now shared real-life hands-on images of the OnePlus 9 5G. It gives us a closer look at the smartphone from all angles.
The images you see attached above are in line with the leaked CAD renders. The front features a flat display with minimal bezels and a punch-hole cutout at the top left. The OnePlus 9 5G looks exactly like its predecessor on the front. The vertical camera array doesn’t seem to be making a return anytime soon.
The Galaxy S20-like elongated camera island on the rear includes two large camera sensors and a smaller third sensor. There’s an LED flash and the ‘Ultrashot’ branding next to them. You won’t find a 3.5mm audio jack here, as expected. The bottom has a USB Type-C port for charging and speaker grills. The power button, alert slider, and power buttons are located in their usual positions.
