    Hi everyone,

    The OnePlus 9 Pro back is hardly a secret anymore. You know its shape and even how the camera module looks like. Today, however, I'm proud and excited to showcase a brand-new CMF (color, material, finish) on our upcoming OnePlus 9 Pro – Morning Mist, a back inspired by nature.

    Over the years, we've talked a lot about CMF. It's an area where we love to experiment, trying to achieve new and exciting looks. We started this process with the OnePlus 6's matte frosted glass, and have been refining it ever since.

    Still, Morning Mist is the first time we use gradient refraction for the CMF. The film coating on the back transitions from a 60-degree level of mist or diffusion at the top to 20 degrees at the bottom. The practical effect is that, by adding a reflective glass, it fades beautifully from a mist-like finish at the top to a mirror appearance at the bottom.

    Morning Mist gradually transitions from silver to black on the edges, resembling the fog on a glossy mirror slowly fading away. I could keep describing it but I don't think I would make Morning Mist any justice. So, feast your eyes on one of OnePlus 9 Pro's stunning finishes.

    Last week, @Crystal Z. reached out to me, wishing to have a community exclusive showcase. It's not every day we can share what we do on the ID (Industrial Design) lab and I still remember how exciting it was when I first showed some of the hundreds of un-released CMF prototypes we have stocked in our Lab.

    Now I'm happy to share two of the finishes that we explored for the OnePlus 9 Pro

    These CMF didn't make it into the top ones, but every design is unique and has its own highlights.

    I will gradually share more un-released OnePlus 9 CMF soon.

    Looks good to me, curious about the other colors. :cool:

    And I do like the "Pixel" approach to fighting the leaks. You might as well post professional-looking product photos instead of having people discovering the phone through rumors and dubious pictures. ;)

    Well, judging by this one, perhaps:
    • Afternoon warmth
    • Nightly fog
    • Forest greenery
    • City smog :rolleyes:o_O
    Actually, guessing the names of the other variants could be a cool thread. Not based on the leaks, just having fun using "Morning Mist" as a starting point. :cool:

    With the amount of caffeine, that variant just jumps out of the box. :D

    From tea to beer, huh? At least it's not the other way round. :p

    So it's more like a "Introducing the OnePlus 9 Pro Petrol" for you? :D
