OnePlus 9 Pro: The Extended Version Of The Standard 9

OnePlus 9 series included three versions of smartphones. The first one is the standard OnePlus 9 and the last one is the slightly compromised budget version named OnePlus 9R. However, the 9 Pro which was recently launched in Nepal is the extended version of the first one which is already available in Nepal. We will be digging into the specs, features, and the official OnePlus 9 Pro price in Nepal in this post. We will also look at the factors which make this model a pro version.

OnePlus 9 Overview

Display and Design

The general outlook of the OnePlus 9 Pro is like that of the standard 9. It features an aluminum frame of dimension 163.2×73.6×8.7mm. The body is protected by the corning gorilla glass 5 on both sides while weighing 197g. Further, it is IP68 certified dust/water resistant for which the brand has claimed endurance up to 1.5m for thirty minutes.

OnePlus 9 Pro flaunts a 6.7-inch AMOLED display panel that boasts a very impressive peak brightness of 1300 nits. The 120Hz of refresh rate is accompanied by the HDR10+ resolution of 1440×3216 pixels with a 20:9 aspect ratio and 525 PPI density. Moreover, it supports a 90.3% screen-to-body ratio.

Talking about the color, Morning Mist, Forest Green, and Stellar Black are the three options from where you can choose according to your preference.

Performance and Memory

The OnePlus 9 Pro is powered up by the same processor as the standard 9, Qualcomm’s top-rated Snapdragon 888 5G. The 5nm chipset teams up with the Octa-core (1×2.84 GHz Kryo 680 & 3×2.42 GHz Kryo 680 & 4×1.80 GHz Kryo 680 CPU. Further, the graphics factor is handled by the Adreno 660 processor.

Moreover, the handset packs the Android 11 on top of the OxygenOS 11.2.7.7. Even the memory variants are like the standard OnePlus 9. 8/128GB, 8/256GB, and 12/256GB with UFS 3.1 but with no expandable capacity via microSD card or any other means.

Camera and Sound

The biggest difference between the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro is in the camera setup. Where the standard 9 had a triple camera setup, the Pro version ships a quad-camera setup with an extra 8MP telephoto sensor. However, the other lens is the same 48MP primary shooter, a 50MP ultrawide camera, and a 2MP for a monochrome factor.

The more features are Hasselblad Color Calibration, HDR, and panorama alongside dual-LED flashlight. Moreover, the 8K video shoot can be carried out in 30 frames per second using this handset.

Talking about the selfie camera, there is a 16MP lens with f/2.4 aperture from which we can shoot 1080p videos at 30fps. The gyro-EIS adds a nice perspective to the shoot.

Like the OnePlus 9, this model also has stereo speakers with 24-bit audio support up to 192kHz frequency.

Battery and Extras

Fueling up the 9 Pro is a non-removable Li-Po 4,500mAh battery with 65W fast charging. There is also a 50W fast wireless charging which is supposed to charge 100% within 43 minutes. However, the 65W fast charging charges 1 to 100% in just 29 minutes. The charging is done via a USB Type-C 3.1 port which can also be used for data transfer.

There is Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS (A-GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, BDS, SBAS), and an NFC for connectivity. In addition, there are an accelerometer, gyro meter, proximity, compass, and color spectrum as the sensors.

Moreover, there is an under-display optical fingerprint sensor for security reasons.
