What about OnePlus 9?
Talking about the OnePlus 9, renders show that it will include a flat screen unlike the Pro model. The smartphone will come in several colour options and triple rear cameras.

Some rumours suggest that the OnePlus 9 series will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 processor, which will be announced later this week. This means that there could be a tough fight between OnePlus and Samsung on which will be the first brand to bring a Snapdragon 875 SoC powered smartphone.
Every year, Samsung is the one that launches the first smartphone with the latest Snapdragon 800 series chipset and the South Korean smartphone maker will likely try the same for the coming year as well. Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S21 series around February. The launch date is yet to be revealed.
Meanwhile, it is also said that the OnePlus 9 series will feature Warp Charge 65W, which is expected to go official alongside the OnePlus 9 series in March. We will need to wait for OnePlus to officially announce the launch date of the OnePlus 9 series.
