OnePlus could collaborate with Hasselblad (as rumoured earlier) for the cameras, which hints that the camera performance could significantly improve.
As for the OnePlus 9e or the OnePlus 9 Lite, it will be a toned-down version of the OnePlus 9 with watered-down specs. The smartphone could come with a 6.5-inch display with a 90Hz refresh rate and be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 SoC. The device could support up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and yet again, this could be one of the RAM/Storage options.
The phone could be backed by a 5,000mAh battery with support for fast charging and get a 64-megapixel primary camera with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens. Other details regarding the OnePlus 9e cameras remain unknown.
