Earlier this week OnePlus announced its partnership with Hasselblad and revealed the launch date for the upcoming OnePlus 9 series smartphones. To those unaware, the OnePlus 9 series will make its global debut later this month on the 23rd of March. OnePlus is said to launch three smartphones under the OnePlus 9 series – OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro, and a Lite variant. The moniker for the third smartphone in the OnePlus 9 series hasn’t been clear to date. The smartphone might be called OnePlus 9 Lite, OnePlus 9E, or OnePlus 9R based on several leaks and reports. The commercial marketing name may not be clear yet, but that doesn’t stop a device from getting certified. Earlier this morning, we spotted a couple of OnePlus 9 series devices on BIS certification.
