OnePlus CEO Liu Zuohu is previewing the “Moonshot” event on March 8, when the company is expected to disclose the details of the next flagship smartphone OnePlus 9. The trailer website reads: “What’s new is right in front of you”, and there is a photo next to it, which looks very much like the famous “earth out” photo from the Apollo 8 mission.
That photo was taken with a Hasselblad camera, and the 180-year-old Swedish company is said to be cooperating with OnePlus to develop the imaging part of its upcoming mobile phone.
In the past, manufacturers have also used moon photos to promote the astrophotography function of their mobile phone zoom cameras, which suggests that this may be a key feature of the OnePlus 9 series.
