The image sensor used here is the IMX766 and the sensor size is 1/1.56″. This means that the OnePlus 9 Pro has two large mobile image sensors. The 50MP camera also comes with a freeform lens that helps to reduce distortion near the edges of the image to 1 percent. The shooter is also capable of capturing macro photos with a 4cm distance.

The OnePlus 9 Pro also comes with an 8MP telescope lens that offers 3.3x optical magnification. There is also a 2MP monochrome camera onboard.
