The OnePlus 9 leak reveals major battery and charging technology updates

It is rumored that OnePlus will launch its line of next-generation smartphones – the OnePlus 9 trio – sometime in March next year. So far, we’ve seen renderings and live images leaked from a pre-production unit of the OnePlus 9, and some of its main specs have also leaked. Now, a new leak has shed some light on the charging attributes of the OnePlus 9, and it looks like the next OnePlus smartphone will offer some important updates in this department.

65 W Fast Charging, 30 W Wireless Charging

According 91Mobiles report, the OnePlus 9 will have support for wireless chargingfinally! As a reminder, the OnePlus 8T, like the OnePlus 8, lost wireless charging because the feature was reserved for its more powerful brother ‘Pro’. In addition, leaked images from the device suggest that The OnePlus’ next flagship killer will also support reverse loading, which means it can also be used to activate other devices.

Now that we’re talking about charging other devices, the OnePlus 9 itself is supposed to be derived from a 4,500mAh battery. As for the charging power, it will offer a 65W wired fast charging, while the wireless charging reaches a maximum of 30W – which is still quite impressive. And if the OnePlus 8T is anything to go by, the 65W charging technology will fill the 4,500 mAh battery from 0-100% in just about 40 minutes.

A 4,500 mAh battery will keep the lights on

According to the oldest leaks, the next OnePlus phone will rock a 6.55-inch FHD + OLED flat panel with 120 Hz refresh rate. The top-notch Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 will keep things going and will be accompanied by 8 GB of RAM. There is a single selfie camera in the front, housed inside a perforated circular punch in the upper left corner.

Rumors about the camera’s hardware are somewhat conflicting. Some reports say that the OnePlus 9 will feature two 48 MP snappers on the rear. However, another report states that the device will come equipped with Leica brand camera hardware which includes a 50MP main snapper, a 20MP wide-angle sniper and a 12MP telephoto camera.
