9 Pro

Almost everything about the OnePlus 9 series had been leaked already. Even hours before the launch, we had our hands on the Amazon listings revealing the key specs of the trio. Yes, there are three phones this time around — the OnePlus 9, the OnePlus 9 Pro, and India-exclusive OnePlus 9R.

As always, this OnePlus lineup is also exciting for the top-tier hardware and more it brings onboard. This includes everything from high-end processors, OxygenOS 11 software, a newer camera system, stupid-fast charging, and a smooth AF display.

Besides the handsets, today, we also got our first full exposure to the long-awaited OnePlus Watch. This one sports a circular dial design with features like heart rate monitoring, SpO2 tracking, sleep cycle monitoring, exercise modes, and a number of exciting watch faces.

Let’s first cover the phone details and then get to the wearable.
