OnePlus may make Android phones, but with the OnePlus 9, you get the sense that the phone maker had another rival in mind. After all, in many ways, the OnePlus 9 seems geared to take on the iPhone 12.

Cameras have long been one of the big selling points for Apple’s phones — so OnePlus made an extra effort to improve the photo-taking capabilities of the OnePlus 9 family. The iPhone 12 can boast leading performance, thanks to the A14 Bionic processor. So is it any wonder OnePlus is trying to erase that advantage by sticking the best Snapdragon system-on-chip into its new phone? And with its display, the OnePlus 9 looks to trump the iPhone 12 in an area where Apple is beginning to fall behind the Android competition.
