The CAD render of the OnePlus 9 reveals a punch-hole display and a triple rear camera system

According to the publication, its source has revealed that the OnePlus 9 is fitted with a flat display measuring 6.65 inches. It is slightly bigger than the OnePlus 8T’s display that measures 6.55 inches. The OnePlus 9’s screen is expected to support a refresh rate of 120Hz.

The handset features a curved rear shell with a rectangular camera module. It houses two large camera sensors and a third lens along with an LED flash unit. Unfortunately, the report has no details on the configurations of the triple cameras. The device retains the placement of the power button, volume rocker and alert slider from previous OnePlus phones.

However, we advise taking this render with a pinch of salt, since reliable tipster Max Weinbach has claimed that it is inaccurate. There are a couple of points that suggest that the OnePlus 9 CAD render could be fake. The tipster has claimed that the render does not match with his information on OnePlus 9. Additionally, the OnePlus 8 that debuted earlier this year came with a curved display. OnePlus may not downgrade to a flat-screen on the next-gen model.

As for the specs, a variant of the OnePlus 9 was spotted on Geekbench with specs like Snapdragon 875 mobile platform, 8GB of RAM, and Android 11. The OnePlus 8T arrived as the company’s first flagship with 65W fast charging support. Hence, it is likely that the OnePlus 9 series will also carry forward this feature.

OnePlus 9 series likely to debut early

The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro debuted in April this year. Last month, Android Central reported that the OnePlus 9 series will go official earlier by mid-March next year.
