A rumour from December last year said that OnePlus 9 Lite will launch in early 2021 along with OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro. A recent rumour said that the phone will be called as OnePlus 9 SE. Now a new guide page for the upcoming OnePlus phones reveal the OnePlus 9R name long with OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro, according to an image posted by @evleaks.
Even though some recent rumours say that the phone will be powered by Snapdragon 690 5G that was first introduced in last year’s Nord N10, earlier rumours revealed that the phone is said to come with the old Snapdragon 865 SoC or it could use the latest Snapdragon 870.
It is expected to feature a 90Hz or 120Hz AMOLED screen, support 65W fast charging, and come with similar camera setup as the OnePlus 8T, while the OnePlus 9 and the 9 Pro are expected to get a new camera module. The phone is said to feature a plastic back to cut the cost, should run Android 11 and is expected to be priced around $600 that is cheaper than the $749 OnePlus 8T in US, so it should be much cheaper in India.
The OnePlus 9 series is expected to be launched in March 2021. We should know more details in the coming weeks since the launch is just a month away. OnePlus is also planning to launch the OnePlus Watch with a round dial alongside in March.
