No doubts that the upcoming series is set to carry the OnePlus 9 moniker with a possibility of a Pro variant being added to the lineup. Rumors have surfaced online that the company is also looking to launch a budget smartphone alongside the flagship devices dubbed the OnePlus 9 Lite.
There isn’t an iota of doubt that the 9 and 9 Pro will feature Qualcomm’s latest 5nm chipset, the Snapdragon 888, however, the more affordable OnePlus 9 Lite will be powered by the Snapdragon 865 instead.
The handset may ship with 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and OxygenOS based Android 11 OS.
What about the design and display?
In terms of display and size, the OnePlus 9 is reported to feature a 6.55-inch full-HD+ (1,080×2,400 pixels) display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 20:9 aspect ratio. A reason that company might not go with the QHD display is that it wants to save up some extra battery.
The smartphone series is also expected to come with a flat display this time around rather a rounded one.
The Lite version is expected to borrow a lot of features and specifications from the recently launched 8T. It may feature a 90Hz or 120Hz AMOLED display, and a quad-camera setup similar to the 8T. Bundled with this, the OnePlus 9 Lite could also get super-fast 65W Warp Charge support, reports Android Central.
Not a lot is known about the design that the flagship series will sport but it is believed that it will sport subtle cosmetic changes.
