Devansh_jain_ , via OnePlus Nord , May 13, 2021 : NOTE:- THIS POST AFFECTS ONEPLUS 8 SERIES AS WELL AS ONEPLUS NORD TOO. The OnePlus 9 series started its journey in India with a peak of hype around its cameras. At the same time, OnePlus was proud to confirm 5G support for all the models, even though 5G is yet to arrive in the country. However, curious eyes quickly caught the lack of major 5G bands and OnePlus replied with a promise to add more in future updates. Sadly, that's no more the case. OnePlus has now confirmed on Twitter that the OnePlus 9 won't get support for any additional 5G bands in the future. This is opposed to the promise that the brand made during the launch of the OnePlus 9 series earlier this year. OnePlus states the limitation of hardware for this, stating that it cannot be fixed via a software update. The phone currently supports two 5G bands in the country. The OnePlus 9 in the US comes with support for multiple 5G bands as opposed to the two in India. The US model supports N1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 25, 28, 38, 40, 41, 48, 66, 71, 77, and 78 bands while the Indian model only gets N41 and N78. The same stands for the more expensive OnePlus 9 Pro. Not that it matters at the moment but whenever 5G goes live in India, OnePlus 9 users will be at the mercy of the network operators. What's weird is that OnePlus initially flagged it as an issue that can be fixed via the software update and now denying the same. This is misleading for those who purchased the device keeping future-proofing the phone with 5G. Sorry Indian users you all have been cheated. What's your view on this! Comment below.
