As per a 91Mobiles report, the OnePlus 9 will get wireless charging supportfinally! To recall, OnePlus 8T as well as the OnePlus 8, both missed out on wireless charging as the feature was reserved for their more powerful ‘Pro’ sibling. Additionally, leaked images of the device suggest that the next OnePlus flagship killer will also support reverse charging, which means it can be used to juice other devices as well.

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

As per older leaks, the upcoming OnePlus phone will rock a flat 6.55-inch FHD+ OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line Snapdragon 888 SoC will keep things running, and it will be accompanied by 8 gigs of RAM. There’s a single selfie camera on the front, housed inside a circular hole-punch drilled in the top-left corner.

Rumors about the camera hardware are somewhat conflicting though. Some reports say the OnePlus 9 will feature two 48MP snappers at the back. However, another report claims that the device will come equipped with Leica-branded camera hardware that includes a 50MP main snapper, a 20MP wide-angle shooter, and a 12MP telephoto camera.
