But its combination of superb design, high-end hardware and excellent software not only make it one of the best phones in the world today but also the perfect device for you to take along on your travels (yes, travel is becoming a thing once again as the world slowly emerges from the pandemic). The phone can not only handle routine tasks like mail, messaging and browsing with ease, but also has the ability and features to be your perfect tech travel companion. Sounds hard to believe? Check these seven reasons why the OnePlus 9 Pro makes the best travelling buddy:
Out of the world cameras
Taking a camera along on a trip is a necessity. To not have all one’s memories of the trip captured and saved would be such a waste. But carrying a camera separately to get good quality images can be such a headache. A DSLR adds to your luggage weight and can be a pain to use for those “capture the moment” times. If you have a OnePlus 9 Pro, those are problems you will not have to deal with. The phone comes with out of the world cameras – a quad camera set up on the back which comprising a 48 megapixel Sony IMX789 sensor with dual native ISO and omnidirectional PDAF, a 50 megapixel ultrawide Sony IMX766 sensor, an 8 megapixel telephoto sensor with 3.3x optical zoom, PDAF and OIS and lastly a 2 megapixel monochrome sensor. And all of them combine to deliver an exceptional performance. The main sensor produces accurate colour and delivers tons of details, the ultrawide sensor will be your best friend for landscape photography, and the telephoto sensor will let you snap from a distance without disturbing your subject.
But these are not the only reasons why we call the cameras on the OnePlus 9 Pro ‘out of this world.’ For the OnePlus 9 Pro;’s cameras, OnePlus partnered with one of the most iconic camera names in the world: Hasselblad. The OnePlus 9 Pro comes with the Hasselblad Pro Mode built right into the native camera app of the phone that allows you to take professional level images right on your phone by allowing you to manually control settings like ISO, shutter speed, focus, white balance amongst other settings. The partnership also brings Hasselblad-level sensor calibration for the first time ever to a smartphone which means colours reproduced by your OnePlus 9 Pro will be amazingly accurate and as close to reality as possible. It also allows you to shoot in 12-bit RAW format which offers 64x the colour compared to ordinary 10-bit RAW format. Along with these features and functions, the partnership also brings unique Hasselblad touches to the interface, such as the iconic Hasselblad X-Pan mode to the OnePlus 9 Pro, allowing you to take stunning panoramic pictures with the aspect ratio of 65:24– the same as the aspect ratio on the original Hasselblad XPan camera. Super low light photography and excellent video shooting ability (you can shoot 4K HDR video) top off the package that will take your travel pictures from basic to brilliant in just one click. Yes, we will say it: you can leave your DSLR behind.
Flagship performance like no other
The OnePlus 9 Pro is powered by one of the most powerful chipsets in the world of smartphones — the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G processor, and comes with RAM and storage variants of 8 GB / 128 GB, 8 GB/ 256GB and 12 GB/256 GB storage, ensuring that memory is never an issue. The phone is built to handle everything, from everyday tasks to high end gaming with ease, You can therefore simply shoot pictures or videos of your travel, edit them in detail on the go (yes, even RAW images) and post them right there and then. Killing the hassle of transferring the data on a laptop, editing it and then sharing it.

Not only is the display a treat to consume content on, thanks to LTPO technology, the power consumption of the device drops by 50 per cent. This basically translates into more screen time, allowing you to use your phone for longer on your trips.
