    @Jimmy Z. It's obvious you have great plans for the the OnePlus 9 series, that being said I'd like to know, will the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro's front-facing camera receive 4K video recording via an OTA update?

    Oneplus 9 pro will support 2 sim?
    I already cancelled my order because of single sim, it was one of the best feature for oneplus, but I'm disappointed now why don't have it 9 pro?

    The 9Series looks that it was it was improved in many areas to former models.

    @Leo X. Thanks for hosting this AMA.:)

    My question goes to @Raymond Z. and thank you in advance for your answer.:)
    Almost every other brands are offering Electrocardiogram (ECG) and Blood Pressure (BP) monitoring functionalities on their smartwatch because those are included on the most wanted features by the users.

    My questions are: Why didn’t OnePlus offered ECG and BP on their watches? Is OnePlus planning to enable those two functionalities on the smartwatches, in the near future?

    @Jimmy Z. Looking at the reviews for both the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro, one major issue with both phones is the quite noticeable shutter lag when taking pictures. How quickly, if at all, will this issue be fixed?

    Just use 3rd Party GCam or mcPro24fps. 4K already achievable on OnePlus 7 Pro 😂😂😂
    OnePlus you really should have listened to your Western Market. You absolutely failed at this Camera Hype and the reviews make it so clear. Do you really not care about your Western Market?

    I would enjoy an answer to these questions as well. I too am also from New Zealand and have had the joy on owning a OnePlus 5 for three years and eight months. I'm long over due for an upgrade and would love to own a OnePlus 9 Pro. Unfortunately there is only one retailer here selling OnePlus phones at the moment. Is there an answer to if or when the OnePlus 9 Pro will be commercially available in New Zealand?

    When will I be able to purchase my 9 Pro? Same bugs from last year when trying to checkout... Looks like I'm gonna have to wait 2 weeks until your own amazon store offers the 9 Pro and I can buy it from there, since with every new model release the online store magically stops working...
    U.S. by the way.

    @Pete @Raymond Z.

    I have been an avid Oneplus Fan since the first generation OnePlus phone. I'm currently using Oneplus 5T limited Edition in Sandstone White. I was planning to get the 7T Pro McLaren edition then got tempted to see what the 8 series had to offer.So , I waited a year. After going through various reviews about the underperforming cameras as compared to the competition , I had no choice but to wait for the 9 series in a hope that it will have better camera capabilities. Fast forward to 2021 , all the hype about the Hasselblad collaboration got me really excited . The official samples were breathtaking. It pushed my expectations to another level. I was like "Finally , the last 2 years of wait is going to be worthwhile".

    Despite the enormous hype about the Hasselblad partnership , most of the popular tech reviewers concluded that the camera performance is underwhelming and that OP9 camera is a huge disappointment when compared to the iPhone and Galaxy 21 cameras. Plus , the price is too steep for what it has to offer.

    My 1st question : How do you plan to fix the so-called underwhelming camera performance ( based on the reviews) after all the hype that has been created ?? Shouldn't it be on par if not better than iPhone and SG 21 series??

    2nd question: How do you plan on convincing your frustrated and disappointed fans who are going to " settle" on this and look for other alternatives which have outstanding cameras within similar price range ( read: iPhone , Samsung) ?

    3rd Question : Why did you still stick to Gorilla glass 5 which is 2 generations older while the competitions and even the other cheaper alternatives offer Victus or at least Gorilla glass 6 ??

    Does the international version of 9/9pro support 5G in China when I use Chinese carriers?
    Ask this because I notice there is difference in band' spec in the international version and Chinese version.
