OnePlus 9 series launched is tipped for March 2021. The company is rumoured to launch three new smartphones, with the third one sitting below the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro. This third smartphone, which was previously rumoured to launch as the OnePlus 9E, could instead launch as the OnePlus 9R.
The new OnePlus 9R moniker was revealed by tipster Evan Blass, aka EvLeaks. According to a screenshot of an alleged source code, the third smartphone would launch as the OnePlus 9R.
Another tipster, Max Jambor, who leaked the name of the third OnePlus 9 smartphone like the OnePlus 9E, expressed his doubts over Blass’ leak about the OnePlus 9R.
