Amazon has the OnePlus 9 Pro at its lowest price yet

The OnePlus 9 Pro has been sitting on the market for about 6 months at this point. There have been some challenges in selling the phone — chief among them is the global supply chain congestion phenomenon which has meant that North America has only had access to the more expensive model with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. But today, there comes some more reprieve with a deepened discount on Amazon.

OnePlus packed you a OnePlus 9 Pro 'lunch' for your first day back to school

Believe it or not, sometimes marketing gimmicks can be fun. It's easy to write off brands as a whole, but some ad campaigns have completely taken over the world. Space Jam, for example, started life as a Super Bowl ad for Nike. OnePlus's own marketing schemes can be pretty hit or miss, but its latest gimmick is cute enough to win over even the most cynical among us.

Live on the bleeding by joining the Closed Beta program for your OnePlus 9 or 9 Pro

If you're a OnePlus user, you might be aware of two release channels. There's the stable one, where releases meant for the general public go, and the Open Betas, where you can have a taste of new releases earlier than usual and help spot bugs before one actually hits the stable branch. But in addition to those there's also a Closed Beta program — a more exclusive group that gets bleeding-edge releases before anyone else does. Sound good? Well, if you have a OnePlus 9 or 9 Pro, then OnePlus wants you to join.

OnePlus plans to add an option in OxygenOS 12 to disable throttling

OnePlus plans to add an option in OxygenOS 12 to disable throttling

Some of you may remember as far back as two weeks ago when OnePlus was caught throttling the performance of the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro based on the app that was currently running, altering performance pretty drastically. One benchmarking application even considered the practice "benchmark manipulation." But OnePlus tells us it's heard the complaints, and it plans to address them with a new option in an upcoming OxygenOS 12 update, letting customers choose whether to enable or disable this "optimized mode."

OnePlus says it will never sell the base model OnePlus 9 Pro in the US

OnePlus says it will never sell the base model OnePlus 9 Pro in the US

When OnePlus launched the 9 Pro, the company highlighted the $969 starting price for the new phone in an 8GB/128GB "base" model. Unfortunately, it wasn't actually available for purchase in the US at the time, and all you could buy was the more expensive $1,069 version of the phone. In April, OnePlus told us that this base model was still coming, it had simply been delayed. But now, the company has made an about-face, and it has confirmed to us that the 8/128GB base model OnePlus 9 Pro is never coming to the US or Canada.

OnePlus defends its app-throttling on the 9 Pro, Snapdragon 888 'overkill in certain scenarios'

Following the news that OnePlus was throttling the performance of 9-Series phones, the company has taken to its forum with a more detailed response, explaining in greater detail the logic behind its actions. In short, OnePlus claims that modern chipsets are "overkill," and there's no need to run at full power for simple tasks like scrolling on a webpage or social media. So, the company throttles performance to improve power consumption and heat dissipation under the argument that it extensively tests these changes for negative effects.
