The OnePlus 9 Pro offers a 6.7-inch AMOLED with LTPO (low-temperature polycrystalline oxide) display with a resolution of 1440 x 3216 at 525 PPI.

The screen is be called Fluid Display 2.0 by OnePlus and offers a Smart 120Hz refresh rate. The LTPO technology (which was also on the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s display) helps provide a smooth scrolling experience while cutting down on the display’s power consumption by 50%.

The Smart 120Hz feature will automatically change the refresh rate to match what’s on screen, as low as 1Hz for things like reading and viewing photos.

Just like other Android flagships this year, the OnePlus 9 Pro is being powered by the Snapdragon 888 chip with 8 or 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM.

The phone is running OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11, which first debuted on the OnePlus 8T.

There’s also 128 or 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage, an in-display fingerprint sensor, face unlock, Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi 6 and 5G.

Inside the OnePlus 9 Pro is a 4,500 mAh battery with Warp Charge 65T wired charging (you can get a full charge in just 29 mins) and Warp Charge 50 Wireless.

To get the 50W charging speeds, you’ll need the updated Warp 50 Wireless Charger, which looks exactly+ like the 30W model from last year.
