In another report, the cameras on OnePlus 9 Pro are said to feature a Sony 32MP front camera and use the new 48MP Sony IMX689 sensor inside the multi camera system.

It will come with a 50-megapixel Ultra Vision wide-angle camera with f/1.9 aperture 20-megapixel Cine Camera, an ultrawide lens with f/1.8 aperture and an OIS assisted 12-megapixel telephoto camera with autofocus and an f/3.4 aperture.
