Stolen photos of what appears to be the OnePlus 9 Pro have come to light in a rather unusual way, as they were shared directly with famous YouTuber Dave2D on Discord.
Thanks to the photos, we can see the back of the camera and its rectangular photo sensor, but especially the logo of Hasselblad, the Swedish manufacturer of medium format cameras, known for their high quality and high price.
The design of the OnePlus 9 Pro from the stolen photos is not exactly the same as that unveiled by OnLeaks a few months ago. Indeed, the famous leaker generally gets his hands on prototypes of smartphones, so the final model may sometimes be slightly different.
On the back of this prototype, there are four photo modules, two of which are quite impressive. According to the information that has leaked, it would be two 48 MP sensors. We can also note the presence of an LED flash, a microphone and a laser autofocus. However, the most interesting information remains the Hasselblad logo between the sensors. We originally thought that the OnePlus 9 Pro was going to be designed in partnership with Leica like Huawei, but it would ultimately be Hasselblad who would support OnePlus on the photo part.
OnePlus 9 Pro: an improved photo part thanks to Hasselblad?
Dave2D has also received images of the smartphone settings, which notably reveal a screen refresh of 120 Hz and QHD + definition (3120 x 1440). The “about phone” page does not reveal more information, however, as the phone is not using a stable update.
On the photo application, the owner of the OnePlus 9 Pro prototype has access to 3.3X optical zoom, as well as new photo modes such as tilt-shift. We recently learned that the OnePlus 9 Pro would not have a periscope for the zoom, but that OnePlus would actively work on photo modes such as Tilt-shit, Hyperlapse, Starbust or Focus Peaking.
Through the partnership with Hasselblad, we could see OnePlus catching up in photos compared to its competitors, but Dave2D fears that this partnership will lead to higher prices for the smartphone. Indeed, Hasselblad is renowned for its quality cameras, but also for its prices much higher than some of its competitors.
