As the leading brand, OnePlus, is yet to launch its next-gen OnePlus 9 smartphone, we’ve been getting constant teases from the brand for a while with the promise of advanced camera upgrades.
With their recent updates, we know it’s set to launch the last week of March. But, if you possess the previous-gen OnePlus 8, a definite question that hits your mind often is, “Will the OnePlus 9 offer enough over the OnePlus 8 worth an upgrade?”, “Why stick with the OnePlus 8?” and if you do plan to buy the OnePlus 8, “Should I wait for OnePlus 9?”
We can clear these confusions with a bold comparison between both these top-notch devices. This article will have a detailed account of parallels between the OnePlus 8 Vs. OnePlus 9.
Dimensions are more important for a phone because it decides if it is comfortable to carry around with your hands. The length of the OnePlus 8 is 6.31″, whereas the OnePlus 9 has a slightly bigger build with 6.33″. The previous version’s width was 2.87″, while the upcoming device comes in 2.92″. The thickness of the previous-gen smartphone remains .31″, while the latest model would arrive in .33″. The weight of the OnePlus 9 is comparatively higher than the OnePlus 8.
The display of both models comes with a Fluid AMOLED with a 20:9 aspect ratio. Even both the phone offers the exact resolution of 1080X2400p. The latest model would come with a better screen size of 6.7 inches when it comes to displaying size. Though the new one comes with a bigger screen, the pixel density is about 396 PPI, while the OnePlus 8 delivers a higher 402 PPI. The screen to body ratio of both smartphones is ~88.7%.
Let us look at the camera features. The OnePlus 8 has a triple camera setup, while the OnePlus 9 might have a quad-camera system. Both of them have a 48MP main camera in common. But the primary camera of the OnePlus 9 is a specially designed custom-developed Sony IMX789 camera. A dual native ISO comes with it that combines two different ISO images and delivers a better dynamic image quality.
The Oneplus 8 had a secondary camera of 16MP ultrawide lens, while the Oneplus 9 comes with a 50MP Sony IMX766 ultra-wide lens. Both have a 2 MP macro lens, and additionally, the OnePlus 9 has an 8MP telephoto lens on completing the quad-camera setup. Both smartphones can record 4K videos at 30 fps.
The CPU of both devices are 2.84 GHz, but the GPU varies in both. The OnePlus 8 has an Adreno 650 GPU, but the OnePlus 9 has an Adreno 660 GPU. Though a Snapdragon processor power both the models, the previous-gen mobile phone has a Snapdragon 865, while the upcoming smartphone gets a Snapdragon 888 upgrade. Both have 8/12 GB RAM and comes in two variants of internal storage: 128GB and 256GB. Both the smartphone runs on the latest Android 11 Oxygen OS.
Battery & Price
We had a 4300mAh battery juicing up the OnePlus 8, whereas the OnePlus 9 has a powerful 5000mAh battery. Hence we can expect a much better battery backup from the upcoming one. But both the models have the same 30W fast charging supporting them; there is no upgrade on that front. The OnePlus 8 price in India is Rs.49999, and we expect the upcoming OnePlus 9 price in India to be on par with its predecessor’s cost.
