OnePlus is tipped to launch the OnePlus 9 series in March 2021. The company is expected to launch three devices, with the third one sitting below the OnePlus 9, and the 9 Pro. Rumours in the past suggested that OnePlus would launch the device as the OnePlus 9 Lite. Later, the name was changed to OnePlus 9E.
The rumour mill now claims that the third OnePlus 9 smartphone will launch as OnePlus 9R, which will be the most affordable out of the three devices. Reminds me of the iPhone XR.. The leak comes from notable tipster Evan Blass, popularly known as EvLeaks. The tipster has shared a source code that reveals the existence of the OnePlus 9R. Let’s take a look at the OnePlus 9R/ 9E specifications, features, and other rumoured details.
The OnePlus 9R is Going to be the Cheapest Device in the Portfolio.
OnePlus is rumoured to launch three new smartphones under the OnePlus 9 series. This third smartphone would sit below the OnePlus 9 and the 9 Pro. Rumours suggest that the third OnePlus smartphone would launch as the OnePlus 9E or the 9 Lite. A new rumour from tipster Evan Blass, popularly known as EvLeaks, reveals that this new smartphone would launch as the OnePlus 9R. The tipster made the claim by posting a screenshot of the source code that reveals the existence of the 9R.
However, tipster Max Jambor suspects Blass’ claim of the renaming of the OnePlus 9 Lite. Jambor had first revealed the name of the third OnePlus smartphone as the OnePlus 9E.

he leak is coming from Evan Blass (@evleaks), who shared a screenshot on his Voice channel. The screenshot shows a string of code that refers to the OnePlus 9R, and well, that is enough to go by and to be honest, that is the only information that we have at the time of writing.
Again, there is no information that is available on this device. Still, if we are to speculate, we could look for a plastic build and a flat display in the OnePlus 9R, along with a fewer camera on the back because it makes very little sense for the company to ship the phone with anything other than the Snapdragon 888.
Among other things, the OnePlus 9 Pro will be the top player in the lineup and it will ship with Hasselblad branded cameras. Reports stated that both phones are shipping with chargers, along with 4,500 mAh batteries.
As far as other information is concerned, we are not sure what we are going to get, and at this point, the OnePlus 9R is a complete mystery. Still, if everything goes according to the plan, we should be seeing more information on the device in the coming days.
