Without doubt among the most interesting aspects of OnePlus 9 Pro there is its photographic sector, which can rely on technology Hasselblad It is on Sony IMX789 sensor, from the combination of which users expect great results.
And with a post on the official forum, the team of the Chinese manufacturer wanted to focus on this aspect and on the great work that the OnePlus engineers have done to optimize the Sony sensor and integrate it into the smartphone, starting from the difficulties to make room for a larger component than those used in previous generations of the company’s phones.
By collaborating with Sony, the OnePlus team has managed to exploit the potential of this sensor and computational photography to arrive at a solution that, according to OnePlus, is not afraid to compare with those offered by other mobile manufacturers.
How Sony IMX789 sensor works on OnePlus 9 Pro
Starting from the specifications, this sensor can count on dimensions of 1 / 1.35 inches, a 52 megapixel resolution with Quad Bayer design and 2.24 μm pixels (thanks to pixel binning) and aspect ratio in 16:11 (instead of the traditional 4: 3).
Thanks to this solution, when taking pictures the IMX789 sensor uses theaspect ratio in 4: 3 (with 1 / 1.43 “size and 48 megapixel resolution) while in 4K video recording at 120 fps it switches to 16: 9 mode, maximizing the viewing angle.
But the OnePlus 9 Pro can also count on other goodies, such as 2 × 2 OCL technology (each pixel can be used for focusing), 12-bit RAW support (which can capture up to 68.7 billion colors). and recording 4K video at 120 fps with DOL-HDR (i.e. Digital Overlap High Dynamic Range, a technology that allows the sensor to take shorter and longer exposures almost simultaneously and combine them into one frame with a higher and near-dynamic range). no artifact).
The OnePlus team is aware that hardware alone is not enough to guarantee screaming shots, as it also requires attention to the software aspect and for this reason it has worked closely with Hasselblad in order to optimize the OnePlus 9 Pro IMX789 sensor. , with particular attention to natural color calibration.
Other improvements have already been introduced with special updates released via OTA and in the coming months the manufacturer promises more with new updates dedicated to the photographic sector.
