OnePlus 9 photo showcase: how far OnePlus phone cameras have come in a year OnePlus 9

The just-launched OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro have great specs and features, but the real advancement is OnePlus’ much-touted partnership with famed camera company Hasselblad to improve the new phones’ photo capabilities. So how superior are these photos compared to those taken by last year’s OnePlus phones?

Since we’re a year or two out from OnePlus phones packing Hasselblad lenses, we’re solely comparing software here: the OnePlus 9 benefits from Hasselblad’s color correction. Ideally, this results in more true-to-life colors in photos, and our initial experience verified those claims.
