OnePlus 9 Pro is the premium flagship smartphone of the series and carries a trademark camera by Hasselblad. Let's talk about its design specifically. To be honest, as a premium smartphone, the device hasn't done any experiment with the design and comes with a slightly heavier body as compared to the other competing devices available in the market.
But the good news that the phone features a great build quality with OnePlus' unique AG-glass processing. The phone comes in three different colors, and among these three options, Pine Green variant is the most impressive one. The only cons we could find is the placement of the fingerprint scanner, which is too close to the bottom and may require you to stretch your thumb a little bit to access it.
One Plus Pro features a display made of LPTO O-Led, a new display material that helps phones to reduce power consumption even at an excellent high-refresh rate display. But that doesn't mean you get any longer battery life. OnePlus 9 Pro is one of the devices that don't overheat easily. The company has come up with a pretty conservative energy strategy to protect the phone from being overheated. If you continue to play video games for a long period of time, and the phone gets hotter than 47C, you might experience a performance degradation.
OnePlusl 9 Pro is using hybrid focus technology that enables you to take pictures with really quick focusing speed. Most of the samples taken by the primary camra are impressive and show a natural richness of colors that is pleasant to watch. The night photography also shows stunning photography and has an improved noise control over its predecessor. Along with the primary camera, you also get an ultra-wide angle lens. Both camera sensors support up to 8k video shots at 30fps. As a final verdict, we would call it a good catch for anyone interested in mobile photography alone, but if you are into video games, probably this isn't the phone for you.
One of the biggest changes in technology that's coming this year is DirectX 12 and the new set of standards, which will be used on both Windows 10 and the Xbox One. Elijah Freeman, an executive producer at Crytek, is quoted by GamingBolt as saying that his team might benefit from the fact that better optimization will be possible, which in turn will make it easier to run consistently at high-frame rates.
He states, "Everything which helps to make drawcalls more efficient is highly useful, so DX12 with its reduced API overhead and better parallelization capabilities can definitely play a part in helping us create more complex VR worlds than before."
DirectX 12 is supposed to introduce a wide variety of improvements, and Microsoft has not yet offered a clear launch date for it. Another piece of tech that has received a lot of attention recently is the cloud and the way it can be used to boost the quality of graphics for a title or to enhance its gameplay.
Freeman believes that it will have a smaller impact on virtual reality gaming because minimum latency is required. If DirectX 12 offers a solid boost to VR, it will be a little ironic, given that Microsoft is not working on a solution in this field.
