    We are already working on switching cameras in Pro mode. It requires more time to meet Hasselblad's high standard of RAW format in terms of color calibration. We believe it will be released within months.

    The partnership with Hasselblad is a long term partnership with aim to define new standard of mobile phone camera system and will include hardware collaboration in the future. It can be expected to have deeper and closer collaboration with Hasselblad and bring better camera performance in the future.

    The partnership will always focus on newer and higher standard of image quality. We will also try to bring some new experience to older users. But for now editing tool is not a high priority.

    We would like to bring more versatility of photography to the camera and the mono camera can achieve classic B&W style photo with finer tone and details.

    The cooperation between OnePlus and Hasselblad came from the pursuit of better image quality by both parties. The understanding, technology and experience accumulated by Hasselblad in the field of professional photography have given OnePlus a lot of valuable help, especially in color accuracy and natural color rendering. Higher standards also mean more difficult development and tuning. For example, our original color tuning algorithm can no longer meet the higher color accuracy standards, so we re-developed color calibration algorithm under the guidance of Hasselblad.

    @jimmy Z

    Do you mean to say that in terms 9 series the partnership with Hasselblad is limited to color calibration and imaging system only??

    And moving forward could we see a collab on the hardware level I.e. the camera system or sensors, on the upcoming models??

    On a Personal note: Are there plans to release a "Pro T" model which we missed last year?? With perhaps a collab on the hardware level as well with Hasselblad?? Shutter system perhaps??

    It's a cost-cutting measure and a design choice to reduce the weight of the device. When I personally first saw the sample, I can't distinguish which one is the real metal one. We did a lot of tests, and the new fibre glass frame is so good that most people couldn't tell the difference. We also did a lot of work to guarantee the durability.

    I would not compare with these two, there are many elements involved in the power consumption, such as cameras, OnePlus 9 Pro cameras have slightly higher power consumption than OnePlus 9.

    My question to @Evan Z. and @Gary C. : Since Qualcomm had said, SoC 888 will support 3 years of Android OS and 4 years of security updates, So that means OP9 Pro will have 3+ major OS updates?

    @Hope L.

    How did you Team choose to supply OnePlus 9 with a clear case vs. 9 Pro with colored cases (for example MM with Rock Gray and Pine Green with a greenish case)?
    Bonus : what about selling dedicated screen protectors (in accessories store ? (always a pain to find well fitted/suitable products on the market)

    Félicitations ! Really nice design 😉

    Wow! So much goes behind the scenes! And how easily some people just call it another branding gimmick. Thanks Jimmy for answering the question 🙂

    Hello, I come to you in relation to the work done with Hasselblade. In Auto mode, do we have the Hasselblade algorithm? Is it only present in pro mode ?
