Leaks from multiple sources over the weekend could have revealed key information about the upcoming OnePlus 9 series, which is expected to be announced early next year. While a widely publicized Weibo article last week suggested the lineup will consist of three devices, including the OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro, and a possible OnePlus 9 Ultra, TechDroider now claims there will only be two models, with conversations about the Ultra being ‘ speculative’.
According to the report, the standard model will carry the model numbers LE2110, LE2117 and LE2119, while the Pro variant is said to have the model numbers LE2120 and LE2127. The model numbers match the first two letters of the rumored OnePlus 9 codename Lemonade, but there is no confirmation on that at this time. The report also suggests that the devices are in the testing phase at the moment, and that mass production has yet to begin.
Meanwhile, recent rumors about the OnePlus 9 suggest that it might be announced in mid-March, which is about a month earlier than at the OnePlus 8 series was unveiled this year. According to online speculation, this device will ship with the Snapdragon 875 SoC, a 144Hz display, an IP68-certified body, an NFC chip, and dual stereo speakers. It could also come with a quick charging of upto 65W and 40W wireless charging support.
It will be interesting to see if OnePlus is looking to speed up its next-gen flagship smartphone, but if it does, it will be in line with other Android vendor plans to do in the coming weeks as well. Samsung is reportedly planning to launch the Galaxy S21 lineup at the end of the year or in January next year, and the S21 Ultra is said to have already entered production. Either way, we have no further information on this at this time, but rest assured that we will keep you posted as we learn more.
