A new leak on the OnePlus 9 series has surfaced that shows off how the phones might end up looking like. A German tech blog WinFuture who has a pretty good track record of putting information on unannounced devices has now come up with the set of OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro renders.
The renders are exactly the same as spotted in an alleged hands-on video last month. The two phones look the same from their rear panel as they both have a significant camera bump. The Hasselblad branding can be seen inside the camera module as well. The partnership has already been confirmed by OnePlus, so this doesn't come as a surprise. The launch of the series is just around the corner. But we might see more leaks coming our way.

It is now official that OnePlus will something announce on March 8. Well, it is currently unknown what could that be but going by the speculations, OnePlus will make the announcement of the launch date of its new smartphone series. So, we are just a few days away from the said date but this does not mean the leaks will stop flowing out. Tipsters and leakers who have found so many gems so far will continue to dig further until the phones come out officially.
Now, a new detail is coming out from the very famous tipster Evan Blass (@evleaks) via Voice.com. According to the tipster’s new post, the OnePlus 9 series pre-orders will start on March 23rd. This could mean the OnePlus 9 series will be up for pre-orders on the same day of the launch as past rumors have stated that the OnePlus 9 could launch on March 23 as well.
According to the tipster, early buyers may get the OnePlus Buds Z true wireless earbuds as a gift. The tipster specifically mentions that the OnePlus 9 buyers could get the free set of regular Buds Z, while the OnePlus 9 Pro may get Buds Z Steve Harrington Edition.
The tipster further points the OnePlus 9R and OnePlus Watch buyers might not receive this special gift. OnePlus Buds Z truly wireless earbuds were launched last year in October for $46. Powerful bass, IP55 rating, 10mm audio drivers, Dolby Atmos, and 20 hours of battery life are some of its key highlights.
There is one more piece of information on the OnePlus 9 series that has managed to come out from a separate leak point. OxygenUpdater has managed to unearth possible color variants of the OnePlus 9 series.
According to the post, the OnePlus 9 will be offered in Astral Black, Arctic Sky, and Winter Mist. The phone on T-Mobile, however, will exclude the Astral Black color. The same phone on Verizon will be offered in completely two different colors – Gloss Black and Glass gradient purple.
Coming to the OnePlus 9 Pro, the phone will come in Stellar Black, Forest Green, and Morning Mist. However, on T-Mobile carrier, the OnePlus 9 Pro will be offered only in the Morning Mist color option.
