There are many rumours about the upcoming OnePlus 9 5G smartphone for quite some time now and recently rumours about the OnePlus 9 Lite has surfaced online. On the basis of these rumours we can expect the launch of three smartphones i.e. OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro and OnePlus 9 Lite in early 2021. The OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro are expected to be powered by Snapdragon 888 flagship SoC but the OnePlus 9 Lite is expected to be powered by the old Snapdragon 865 SoC.
The OnePlus 9 Lite is expected to have an AMOLED display with refresh rate of either 90Hz or 120Hz. It is also expected to support 65W fast charging and might come with the same camera setup like the OnePlus 8T. On the other hand, the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro are expected to feature a new camera module. The OnePlus 9 Lite might feature a plastic back to cut the cost and might run Android 11 with OxygenOS 11.
The OnePlus 9 Lite is expected to have a price of approx. $600 which is cheaper than the price of OnePlus 8T i.e. $749 in the US. Hence, with this we can assume that it should be much cheaper in India. The OnePlus 9 series is expected to launch in March 2021 and we will get to know more details about the same in the coming months.
