OnePlus has finally taken the wraps off the OnePlus 9 smartphone series. The new-generation flagship smartphone series is announced with three different models. The company has announced the OnePlus 9R alongside the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro via an online launch event hosted at the company’s official YouTube channel. Not just smartphones, the event was the centre stage for the OnePlus smartwatch as well. As expected, both the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro have top-of-the-line hardware including 5G connectivity. The features are similar on both devices except for slight variation in the design and camera specifications.

The display on both units has a 120Hz refresh rate and a tiny punch-hole for the selfie camera on the top-left.
