OnePlus 9 series won't get additional 5G bands in India
OnePlus has confirmed that its 9 and 9 Pro flagship smartphones, which were announced in March, will not get additional 5G bands via software update in India. In response to a query, the company has said that the OnePlus 9 series supports two bands (n78 and n41) for 5G and it is not possible to add support for more bands via software update.
A 'miscommunication' suggested the phones will get more 5G bands
'The highest priority band is n78 in India'
"The 5G bands on the OnePlus 9 series are decided based primarily on the priority of Indian carriers," wrote a OnePlus community expert. "The highest priority band is n78, which will be the most commonly deployed 5G bands in India and has the widest frequency that reflects the advantage of 5G transmission rate so far, then potentially n41 and other bands."
The duo sports a 120Hz AMOLED display
OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro feature a punch-hole design, slim bezels, and an in-display fingerprint sensor. On the rear, they have up to four cameras. The vanilla 9 model bears a 6.55-inch Full-HD+ (1080x2400 pixels) Fluid AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate.
