Massive update drops for OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro
Since the OnePlus 10's arrival, the OnePlus 9 is no longer the latest, most advanced smartphone launched by the Chinese handset maker, but that certainly doesn’t make it less valuable, especially considering the fact that it will be heavily supported for at least a few more years.

In that regard, OnePlus has just announced that a huge update is now making its way to both OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro “flagship killers.” The update is full of new features, optimizations and fixes, but some of the additions will only be available in select territories.
