It’s been a month since OnePlus has unveiled the OnePlus 9 Pro to the world in their hour-long launch event. You may know that OnePlus created a hype boasting its collaboration with Hasselblad to offer next-level photographic experience on the OnePlus 9 Pro. With that and all the other things in mind, OnePlus fans were quick enough to pre-book the most expensive flagship device launched to date. However, the excitement doesn’t seem to last long as users started reporting overheating issues on the OnePlus 9 Pro.  

After the units were received by many users, reports started pouring in from around the world about it getting hot while using for a long time. Many users reported that the OnePlus 9 Pro is overheating abnormally while using the camera app. While some others claimed that it is heating up with normal usage too. It seems that the OnePlus 9 Pro is already facing some usage issues. Multiple users are reporting overheating problems on this phone while performing certain tasks. 

In particular, one user took to a social forum to pen down his frustration about overheating problems he faced on a OnePlus 9 Pro when he was recording a 4K 60fps clip. He added that he could only get footage worth mere seconds as the phone heated up like fire and an overheating warning popped up on the display to stop filming or the device would shut off automatically. Another OnePlus 9 Pro owner claimed that they couldn’t take pictures in the sunlight due to overheating problems. It should be noted that overheating problems are also causing some severe battery drain problems on the OnePlus 9 Pro.
