The OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro have been rumored for a while, but as their expected announcement date nears, more details are being leaked online. Thanks to a recent announcement from OnePlus, we already knew that the OnePlus 9 series was going to benefit from a new partnership between OnePlus and Hasselblad. However, we now know new information about the sensor that these handsets will use.

Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus, recently revealed that the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro will use the Sony IMX789 sensor for the main rear camera. This sensor is able to support 4K video recording at 120fps on both handsets, but the OnePlus 9 Pro will also have a Hasselblad Pro mode that will enable it to capture 12bit RAW images as well.
