OnePlus is making an announcement on March 8. The company is expected to announce the launch date of the upcoming OnePlus 9 series. It is tipped to launch three smartphones under the OnePlus 9 series. The third smartphone will sit below the OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro. According to initial leaks, this third smartphone will launch as the OnePlus 9 Lite or the OnePlus 9E. However, tipsters Evan Blass and Ishan Agarwal claimed that the third phone will launch as the OnePlus 9R. Adding to the confusion is the Spigen website, which has leaked the names of the three OnePlus smartphones.
Spigen website suggests that the third OnePlus 9 smartphone will be called OnePlus 9E
OnePlus’s third smartphone is rumoured to launch as the OnePlus 9R, as per recent reports. However, the Spigen website has listed this third smartphone as the OnePlus 9E.
According to the website, OnePlus will launch three new smartphones. These would include the OnePlus 9, 9 Pro, and the 9E. The name of the third smartphone is contrary to what tipsters Ishan Agarwal and Evan Blass claimed. Blass spotted a source code which revealed that the third device under the 9 series would launch as OnePlus 9R. Agarwal later reiterated Blass’ claim.
However, tipster Max Jambor, who has maintained an accurate record when it comes to OnePlus leaks, raised a doubt over the tipster’s claim. Jambor had previously claimed that the third phone will be launched as OnePlus 9E – similar to Spigen’s listing.
OnePlus is expected to clear the air in the coming days. The company is tipped to launch the OnePlus 9 series on March 23, with the launch date announcement on March 8. Details about the OnePlus 9E/ 9R have leaked in the past.
