The OnePlus 9 series is another more intriguing line of phones available on the market today. OnePlus launched smartphones equipped with the Hasselblad imaging system, so the public is curious about the results. Various reviews, teardown videos, and durability testing have already been done, but we know there is still more to explore. However, the launch of the OnePlus 9 isn’t exactly perfect. The OnePlus 9 Pro 8GBRAM with 128GB of storage has lagged behind. There were also reports of overheating issues while the camera app is on. Since then, the problem has been fixed with an OTA update.
