    They've squeezed everything they could from that old 12Mpx sensor, but to be honest, it's time to move on to something more modern.

    Well, three years is what they promise..

    And you should know by now what it will be in reality.

    Once the next generation is out the 9 series will go where it's ancestors went..

    Into oblivion :rolleyes:

    Indeed, it has reached it's limits. The next pixel would really need an upgrade there to stay competitive with samsung. Especially with sammy's latest software update rules.

    Samsung would really be an alternative if it weren't for OneUI..

    Thank you, Yash. Please keep in mind: This thread is about the 9 PRO sensor, this phone is aimed to camera enthusiasts, so any others, who don t care much about camera, might go for the 9 non Pro, that phone is cheaper but it s still good.

    But even Apple is going to higher megapixel sensor as the iPhone 13 is rumored to have a 48 megapixel sensor for the camera. And you need greater than 12 megapixel sensor to capture video in 8K resolution even if it is not true cinema 8K video.

    Canon & Nikon when they launched their mirrorless cameras also required a few software updates to get them to at semi-acceptable performance level compared to their DSLR cameras. And those were $3K cameras so some software tuning is always going to be necessary unless we go back to analog technologies as digital technologies from their very nature requires tuning to make it look less surreal.

    OnePlus is still unsure about which market they should pursue....

    To go after the sophisticated pro photographer....Hasselblad buyer type crowd or the kids whose parents bought them a OnePlus for playing pubg or become trendy "influencers" wannabe crowd. :rolleyes:

    I do not agree. I use phone camera to take pictures for work. I'm arhitect so making pictures with realistic colours is why I did go back to oneplus 9 pro. But yes for now results are mixed.

    Why on earth would anyone want 8K video on a phone? o_O

    Even 4K is way over the top, but because specs...

    Not gonna happen...
