Following the example of Samsung, OnePlus can also anticipate the launch of the new OnePlus 9. That’s because the Chinese manufacturer wants to face the South Korean and its Galaxy S21 series in some specific markets.
Therefore, the rumored season involving the OnePlus 9 series is officially open. This week, the folks at 91Mobiles published what is being considered the first CAD rendering of the future high end.
Like its predecessor OnePlus 8T, the new device expected to hit the market with few front edges and a hole in the upper left corner to accommodate the selfie camera.
The back has the manufacturer’s name written on the bottom, centralized logo and camera module is located in the upper corner. In addition, we also have confirmation that the OnePlus 9 can hit the market with three rear cameras.
For now, OnePlus has not commented on the matter. Thus, we emphasize that everything should still be considered as just another rumor.
Anyway, we already know that the device is expected to hit the market with Snapdragon 875 processor and support for 5G connection.
Another important detail is the 6.55-inch screen with a refresh rate of up to 144 Hz. Finally, the device brings a large capacity battery and supports 65W fast charging,
it comes out of the box with Android 11 running underneath of the OxygenOS interface. Now let’s talk about Huawei and Qualcomm deal.
After announcing that it had requested a license from the United States to resume its relationship with Huawei, Qualcomm finally confirmed that the Department of Commerce had complied with its request.
So the Snapdragon maker can actually sell chips to the Chinese. However, the Trump administration has made it very clear that Qualcomm cannot market 5G equipment to Huawei.
Commenting on the matter, a company spokesman clarified to the Daily Business News. We have obtained licenses for some products, including several 4G products.
However, Qualcomm declined to comment on when to start supplying products to Huawei. Moreover, the company is also not sure when the United States is expected to start selling 5G chips to the Chinese.
As much as the release only serves the 4G market, this is a great news for Huawei. That’s because the Chinese giant may return to selling basic and intermediary smartphones with Qualcomm processors.
In addition to the company, AMD and Intel have also received a US license. Rumors indicate that soon MediaTek, TSMC and even Google may join this list.
