OnePlus collaborated with Hasselblad, a Swedish camera manufacturer, on the OnePlus 9 series. This collaboration paid off, as the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro finally delivered the flagship-level camera performance that OnePlus fans have been demanding for years.

With many software upgrades since its launch, OnePlus has continued to modify and improve the camera performance of the OnePlus 9 series. OnePlus has taken a step forward with the latest OxygenOS version.

“Working with Hasselblad on XPan Mode has helped us recreate their legendary experience of viewing your photographs in a 65:24 format before shooting a wide, panoramic image in 30mm and 45mm. Using XPan Mode on the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro will let our users see the world around them through a unique lens,” said Hsiaohua Cheng, Head of Imaging at OnePlus.

OnePlus has just released a new OxygenOS update for the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro, which includes a whole new photography mode called XPan Mode, among other upgrades. XPan Mode, created in partnership with Hasselblad, aims to replicate the Hasselblad XPan camera’s camera experience by allowing users to shoot panoramic photographs in a 65:24 format.

The aspect ratio of photos taken in XPan Mode is 65:24, which is close to the original Hasselblad xPan camera. The camera mode generates 20MP photographs from the 48MP sensor and 50MP ultra-wide sensor, which have been cropped. Images are cut from the native resolution of the respective camera — 48MP and 50MP — rather than the pixel-binned 12MP option, according to OnePlus.
