OnePlus is expected to unveil its next flagships in the first quarter of 2021. It is said that there will be another model next to the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro. This model, called the OnePlus 9 Lite, uses the Snapdragon 865 chip instead of the Snapdragon 888 chip, unlike the higher-end models.
This action will make OnePlus launch a cost-effective model in addition to the introduction of flagship products. The Snapdragon 865 is the chip used in the high-end products of 2020; But the Chinese company plans to launch the chip in a model with a Light extension in 2021.
Aside from how accurate this naming is, what matters most is the price of the OnePlus 9 Lite. In fact, with the right pricing, OnePlus can gain a lot of customers for its new product.
A news source who confirmed the existence of the OnePlus 9 Lite also mentioned its price and believes that the Chinese company will launch the Light OnePlus 9 series model at a price of $ 600. The move will come at a time when the OnePlus 9 is priced at around $ 800 and the OnePlus 9 Pro is priced between $ 950 and $ 1,000.
In terms of price, the OnePlus 9 Lite is in the category of products such as the Galaxy S20 FE and Pixel 5, and of course it has a lot to say in terms of hardware. The OnePlus 9 Lite is expected to carry many of the features of the OnePlus 8T.
Because OnePlus attaches great importance to providing the best gaming experience in its products, one can expect OnePlus 9 Lite to be equipped with a display with a refresh rate of 90 or even 120 Hz. The OnePlus 9 Lite is said to support 65-watt fast-charging technology, and for the main camera, it will be equipped with the same model used in the OnePlus 8.
