Bad news for those hoping for bigger battery OnePlus 9 / 9 Pro

Both reportedly get the same 4500mAh


According to a new rumor, the upcoming OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro will both get the same battery 4500 mAh in size. That is almost the same size as its predecessor and slightly disappointing for those who were expecting more.

Now there's little to complain about 4500mAh but it's strange that the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro get the same capacity. Usually, the more elaborate model comes with a larger battery. The rumor comes from Max Jambor who writes for AllAboutSamsung.

Max adds to his post that OnePlus still ships a charger with the phone. Apple and Samsung both omit a charger in the box. Earlier, an image leaked of the OnePlus 9 Pro with the Hasselblad logo on the back. This originally Swedish manufacturer of photo cameras is not very well known to the general public, partly because their products are so expensive. Yet everyone knows a picture shot with a Hasselblad camera. NASA took a Hasselblad camera with them during the first moon landing. The crew of Apollo 11 shot the famous Earthrise photo, the rising blue earth in front of a gray lunar landscape, with a Hasselblad.

Collaboration with Hasselblad

Whether you'll also take iconic photos with the future OnePlus 9 Pro remains to be seen. It is not clear what Hasselblad has added to the 9/9Pro. It is possible that the cooperation is purely marketing in which they just pace their name onto the device. There are more examples where famous lens and/or camera manufacturers have collaborated with phone manufacturers. Leica, Zeiss and Light are some examples.
