OnePlus 9 series camera details revealed

Lau reveals that the upcoming OnePlus 9 series will come with a 50MP ultra-wide-angle camera featuring a Sony IMX766 sensor. Lau also shared a comparison post of a picture taken with a conventional ultra-wide and another taken with the OnePlus 9 series. Notably, the later didn’t have any distortion hinting at some kind of hardware correction. Apart from this Lau doesn’t reveal anything more about the OnePlus 9 series. However, he hinted at the possibilities of more surprises later this week. 

The OnePlus 9 series has already been confirmed to come with a Sony IMX789 sensor, which could be utilised for the 48MP main camera. It will offer a 140-degree field of view, free form lens, 12-bit RAW images and more photography-related features.

The upcoming flagship offerings will come with ‘Natural Colour Calibration with Hassleblad’ that is said to bring natural-looking colour to photos. The Hasselblad Pro mode on the OnePlus 9 series will offer advanced adjustments like ISO, focus, exposure times, white balance to fine-tune the photography experience. 

Apart from the camera details, the OnePlus 9 series will sport a rectangular camera module with a Silver colour back panel. It houses two big vertical sensors and below it, there are two smaller horizontal sensors. A Hasselblad logo is located between the vertical and horizontal sensors. The smartphone with quad-cameras is expected to be the Pro variant since the vanilla version is tipped to feature a triple camera setup.
