It’s a no-brainer that the OnePlus 9 series is arriving on March 23 globally and March 24 in China. The company has so far been promoting the OnePlus 9, 9 Pro devices but never spoke about the rumored 9R. That ends today as OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has confirmed it himself.
In an exclusive interview with News18, Pete Lau says that the company is excited to bring the OnePlus 9R. The device will be targeted for a flagship experience at an affordable price.
If we recall, an older Android Central report said that the company is planning to bring a third device with an older Snapdragon 865 chipset. This was first believed to be the OnePlus 9 Lite only to be revealed as the OnePlus 9R later.
Coming back, Pete says that both the OnePlus 9R and OnePlus Watch will launch alongside the OnePlus 9, 9 Pro on March 23. He goes on to say further that the device will focus more on “smooth scrolling, immersive gaming controls and a superior viewing experience”.
To aid the above parameters, the device will also have the technology and class-leading industrial design so that the company can give a balanced all-around smartphone as per Pete. Talking about 5G, he says the network provides improved speed, better latency for cloud gaming.
There were vague rumors about the third device launching with watered-down specs like Snapdragon 690 5G chipset but looking at Pete Lau’s interview we feel that the device will be closer to the OnePlus 9, 9 Pro in performance, user experience, 5G but sell at a lower price.
