Digital Camera World Verdict

The OnePlus 9 Pro is one of the best camera phones around, and given the fact it starts from £829 (approximately $1,150), it’s fending off pricier competition from Apple and Samsung with gusto. Add to the mix sensational specs across the board, as well as the fastest wireless charging available on any mainstream smartphone, and OnePlus has finally created a true world-class camera phone.

The OnePlus 9 Pro marks a landmark partnership between the Chinese smartphone brand and Hasselblad. The (at times) off-the-wall super-premium camera maker with an almost cult-like following might seem like an odd choice for budget-beating OnePlus to team up with, but at the same time, given OnePlus’s at times zealous online community, they have devoted fanbases in common. 

Generally speaking, camera partnerships between phone and camera makers have been successful, resulting in devices like the Nokia 808 Pureview (with Zeiss) and the Huawei P and Mate series (with Leica). That said, Nokia’s recent smartphones have missed the mark despite Zeiss co-branding. Even if the camera’s terrible, though, the phone’s specs look stellar across the board.
