The price and launch date of the OnePlus 9 Lite may have been exposed by a new leak. OnePlus 9 is said to be the next flagship from OnePlus, and the lineup is said to feature three models this time around. The new flagship range is slated to hit the market next year, and previous reports indicated that there may be a third model called the OnePlus 9E. A new report now suggests that the third model is called OnePlus 9 Lite and not OnePlus 9E. It is also reported that this model will not run on the latest Snapdragon 888 SoC.
Android Central cited sources too report that the OnePlus 9 Lite will be the third model in the OnePlus 9 series. The rumored phone is reported to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC and not the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC. However, the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro are expected to ship with Qualcomm’s latest flagship SoC. This also suggests that the third ‘Lite’ variant may be rated more aggressively than the other two models in the OnePlus 9 series.
With the launch of three models, OnePlus may want to change its strategy from a series of two models that it only adopted with the OnePlus 7 Pro last year. If this new report is to be believed, OnePlus may want to branch out even further and introduce more options for consumers. The report also suggests that the OnePlus 9 ‘Lite’ is priced at around $ 600 (around Rs.44,100), the OnePlus 9 in the range of $ 700 to $ 800 (Rs 51,500 to 58,800), and for the premium OnePlus could be priced at likely between $ 150 and $ 200 (roughly $ 11,000 to $ 14,700) for the 9 Pro. Of course, there’s still no confirmation from OnePlus for a third model, and we encourage you to take that rumor with a pinch of salt.
The OnePlus 9 series is expected to hit the market in the first quarter of 2021. More details should become known as we get closer to launch.
