This is the OnePlus 9 5G with Snapdragon 888 inside

OnePlus is preparing to launch its new flagship phone for 2021 with the upcoming OnePlus 9 series. Before its official announcement, PhoneArena got live photos of the new phone that will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor with 5G. Here’s a clear look at the OnePlus 9 5G.

What you see here is a prototype of the device and the back uses a placeholder logo instead of the typical OnePlus branding. As seen below, the OnePlus 9 now gets a thick camera bump that houses two large cameras, one smaller sensor and one LED flash. There is a notable trademark “Ultrashot” but it is not clear if this is just a placeholder for the prototype device.

Since this is a non-professional model, it will likely include a main sensor and an ultra-wide angle unit similar to OnePlus 8. The third small camera could be a macro lens or maybe a 3D ToF sensor for better depth effects. If you look closely, the camera design looks like an extended version of the iPhone 12’s camera bump with an extra small sensor at the bottom.

Based on the phone system information, PhoneArena said that the main camera will likely use a 48MP sensor while the secondary shooter will use a 16MP sensor. Interestingly, Xiaomi’s upcoming Mi 11 is also seen with a similar design 2 large + 1 small camera.

OnePlus 9 still doesn’t have a 3.5mm headphone jack and still keeps a notification slider on the right along with the power button. Meanwhile, the volume rocker remains on the left. The SIM tray appears to come with rubber seals indicating that it will have some form of water resistance.
