- Several OnePlus 9 Pro buyers are experiencing issues with their phones overheating.
- Most people report that the device heats up while using the camera app.
- Some even have problems with overheating when setting up and charging.
From the press, the OnePlus 9 Pro has apparently already faced some usage problems. Several new owners of the phone have reported cases of overheating. The complaints were discovered on twitter as well as a OnePlus forum thread.
Many users say that their phone heats up while using the camera app. One user in particular tried to record a 4K clip at 60 frames per second but only managed to get one minute worth of footage due to overheating. Another OnePlus 9 Pro owner couldn’t even take a picture in sunlight due to the overheating issue.
In such scenarios, the phone’s overheating warning will appear which will automatically block some functions like the camera app.
Some OnePlus 9 Pro owners also notice the problem while charging their phones. At Amazon India, several verified buyers have reported similar issues. One of them said that his OnePlus 9 Pro shows the overheating warning before they can even set up the phone.
In some cases, overheating problems also lead to severe battery discharge.
It is unclear what causes this problem and whether it affects only a small number of units or is a more common problem. OnePlus may be able to update through an OTA update if the overheating occurs due to a software bug. However, the company has yet to officially acknowledge the matter.
