With the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro set for an official announcement soon, the firm has taken it upon itself to upload the 9 Pro phone's teasers onto its community forums.

An OnePlus staff member - "Chief Designer" to be precise - that goes by "Hope L." uploaded a total of nine images of the finalised OnePlus 9 Pro design, along with two images depicting rejected designs. The focus is on OnePlus's choice of CMF (colours, materials, finishing), with a silver colourway they proudly named Morning Mist.

"Morning Mist is the first time we use gradient refraction for the CMF. The film coating on the back transitions from a 60-degree level of mist or diffusion at the top to 20 degrees at the bottom. The practical effect is that, by adding a reflective glass, it fades beautifully from a mist-like finish at the top to a mirror appearance at the bottom." - Hope L., Chief Designer, OnePlus.

The official teaser tallies very much with the leaks from last week, although the previous leaks focused more on the camera capabilities and Hasselblad branding for the rear cameras.

Be sure to check out the OnePlus forums if you want the rest of the renders, as well as a peek at the prototype designs leading up to it.

The phone itself is due for a 23 March 2021 reveal.
