Think of the OnePlus 8 Pro and its many Display problems? Well it seems that the newest “Pro” flagship OnePlus’ has some problems of its own – one of them is overheating. Several OnePlus 9 Pro buyers were reporting Overheating Problemsand it’s unclear if it had something to do with a software glitch, bad battery, SoC-related issues, thermal hardware inefficiency, or something else entirely.
There is a whole thread in the official OnePlus forum Here users have documented heating problems with their OnePlus phone. In particular, many users have reported that the phone displays an overheating warning when using the camera app, especially when recording 4K video at a high frame rate. When the overheating warning is displayed, the system automatically blocks certain functions. For example, the camera app won’t let you click photos when the phone is overheating.
But that’s not all. I just looked up Twitter and came across at least ten tweets of disgruntled OnePlus 9 Pro owners complaining about their new phone’s overheating problem. In some cases, the overheating problem was also accompanied by rapid battery dischargesuggesting that these two problems might be related. For some users, the phone temperature rose even while idling. And for a tech journalist from IndiaThe Battery Care app installed on the OnePlus 9 Pro shows a faulty battery inside.
A quick look at the list of products on Amazon India also tells a similar story. Several buyers have left bad reviews, especially after problems with overheating and battery discharge with the OnePlus 9 Pro. The heating issues are unfortunate, especially considering the fact that OnePlus has spoken and advertised at length about the updated thermal management hardware in the OnePlus 9 Pro. The company has yet to acknowledge why the newest OnePlus flagship is going to be toasty, but we’ll keep you updated as soon as we hear about it.
