Pete Lau teases the IMX766 and IMX789 sensors on OnePlus 9 Pro

Ivan, 12 March 2021

The OnePlus 9 Pro is coming out on March 23 and it has been teased a lot in the build-up, especially for its cameras, co-developed with Hasselblad.

The latest teaser is by OnePlus CEO Pete Lau on Twitter. He shared two camera samples from the main and ultrawide angle cameras of the upcoming OnePlus 9 Pro, hinting at their equally-powerful sensors.

We know from Lau himself that the main camera of the OnePlus 9 Pro will be a custom-developed Sony IMX789, while the ultrawide will use a Sony IMX766.

The IMX789 main sensor has dual native ISO, full-pixel omni-directonal autofocus, it can record 4K video at 120 fps and supports real time HDR video processing. It will feature Sony’s Digital Overlap HDR (DOL-HDR). Unlike staggered HDR, DOL is able to capture several exposures simultaneously, which helps remove ghosting caused by moving objects.

The IMX766 for the ultrawide will sit underneath a freeform lens, which will reduce distortion from 20% to about 1%.

Nav is so right! Chinese phones are so bad in terms of in time quality! Why only camera and/or teasing?!

So this is camera phone and we cannot do anything other than taking photos? We are expecting more to know about phone other than cameras.
