The new OnePlus 9 smartphones have been available for a few weeks and are an undeniable success despite their particularly high price. Smartphones with perfect technical data, a photo area certified by Hasselblad … but also smartphones that tend to overheat.

A known overheating that was soon fixed by OnePlus
In fact, various OnePlus 9 Pro owners have reported heating issues with their terminal on the brand’s official forums. Specifically, some smartphones tend to display a warning message on the screen indicating that the device has overheated. This is usually what you see when the Photos app is running.
While it’s not uncommon for your smartphone to heat up with prolonged use of the photo and / or video functions, the problem occurs with the OnePlus 9 Pro even with very little use. In some cases, the overheating is such that the smartphone temporarily prevents photos or videos from being taken so that the smartphone can cool down.
On the design side, like the new Xbox Series X and PS5, the OnePlus 9 Pro has been designed to best dissipate the heat, especially caused by charging. However, it seems that the problem mentioned above is software, and OnePlus has already confirmed that an update will fix the problem soon.
At Presse-citron, in our full tests of the new OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro, we didn’t encounter the slightest particular problem regarding the heating. And that even if we put a strain on the photo / video area of smartphones.
