    hello, I want to get the OP 9 pro but there's only the Chinese variant available in my local shops and online stores. I was wondering about the the differences between the two variants ? if there's any hardware difference or is it only in the software?

    and if I get the Chinese variant, how will I flash the global Rom on it and if that will void the warranty ? thanks in advance.

    so I contacted a few sellers online and was told that they're selling a Chinese spec phone the global Rom, what exactly does that mean ? will I still need to flash international ROMs when I get the phone ?

    Technically there is the Chinese version which runs ColorOS, then there are 4 versions of the Oneplus 9 Pro for the rest of the world, India, Global, EU and North American (T-Mobile/Verizon).

    Essentially the differences are mainly down to the 5G network bands for each version. And while the different OOS will essentially work on all variants, you will also have different regional apps and features for each one too.

    To save confusion and problems later on, its always best to choose the version within your region.
