The tipster wrote that they do not know whether the supply chain had not recovered from the losses faced due to the pandemic yet. Although many phones had a periscopic lens till the third quarter of 2020, a lot of companies are going to manufacture their devices without the facility in the coming year.

This tipster suggests that other developers expected to market phones with Snapdragon 888 (like the OnePlus 9 series) in 2021 are going to let go of the periscopes. It is important to note here that OnePlus products have not used a periscope lens before, as pointed out by a tech portal.

Earlier tipsters had suggested that the OnePlus 9 series will come with Leica lenses. As per a tweet reply by leakster Teme OnePlus will have a collaboration with Leica for their upcoming flagship. In another tweet, the same tipster also revealed a collaboration between LEica and Huawei. Early on this month, a tech publication also leaked the live images of the 5G variant of the base model.

The series of pictures showed that the OnePlus 9 5G consists of two larger sensors at the back along with a much smaller third camera. The 6.55-inch device seemed to closely resemble its predecessor OnePlus 8T in terms of design.
