OnePlus 9 Pro hands-on leak suggests an interesting new detail

Despite its general popularity, OnePlus hasn't really been known for doing well in one particular aspect. Of course, it has tried to play down its flaws through its marketing but even CEO Pete Lau eventually admitted that its cameras really need to step up to the competition. He promised to do so and not without some external help. Given how its cousins Vivo and OPPO have partnered with ZEISS and Leica, respectively, it was expected that OnePlus would do likewise. Few, however, probably expected that it would tie-up with one of the least likely optics experts, at least based on this still shady leak.

OnePlus preparing to leverage cameras like never before

A recent update to the basic OnePlus camera app build in combination with a comment from a Gcam developer makes us believe OnePlus is making big moves in the camera app space.

OnePlus Nord N10, N100 US pre-orders come with freebies

Although OnePlus mostly makes its phones available in all markets, including the US, but its new Nord line tells a different story. The first OnePlus Nord, which was a rather decent mid-ranger, wasn't sold directly in the US and, instead, the more entry-level OnePlus Nord N10 and Nord N100 would take its place in that market. OnePlus has already announced a US launch for these two but if you pre-order directly from the manufacturer, you'll be able to grab a free accessory.
