Rumored specs for the OnePlus 9E have been leaked, and it appears to be like as if it’s the cellphone we thought the OnePlus 9 Lite is likely to be.
In line with a report from Greek outlet TechManiacs, the OnePlus 9E will launch as one in every of three new OnePlus gadgets – alongside the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Professional – set to be launched a while between March and April 2021.
Whereas we’ve already reported on several leaks relating to the OnePlus 9 and 9 Professional fashions, we had anticipated the rumored third cellphone within the upcoming OnePlus lineup to be dubbed the OnePlus Lite, and supply an inexpensive various to its extra premium counterparts – however till now, particulars relating to the machine have been few and much between.
If this latest specs leak is to be believed, it appears to be like as if the OnePlus 9E will take up the mantle because the extra inexpensive entry level into the brand new OnePlus lineup.
An inexpensive sibling
Firstly, the report suggests the OnePlus 9E shall be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 processor alongside 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage. For comparability, we anticipate the OnePlus 9 will come geared up with a Snapdragon 888 processor, with the identical 8GB of RAM and 128GB of inside storage on board.
The OnePlus 9E can also be anticipated to characteristic a 6.5-inch Full HD+ show with a 90Hz refresh fee. That is a barely decrease spec than the rumored 120Hz variable refresh fee we count on to see from the premium fashions within the lineup (and a smaller show than the 6.78-inch measurement anticipated from the Professional model), however nonetheless a vibrant and succesful display screen nonetheless.
As for its digital camera, the report suggests the OnePlus 9E will include a 64MP predominant sensor and 8MP ultra-wide digital camera, although it’s unclear whether or not these will kind a dual-camera setup. For what’s reportedly an inexpensive smartphone, that’s not dangerous in any respect.
Now we have an thought of the digital camera specs on its larger brothers, too, with the OnePlus 9 apparently boasting a 48MP predominant digital camera (outputting 12MP pictures) alongside a 48MP ultra-wide unit and an unknown third digital camera. The OnePlus 9 Professional, in the meantime, is assumed to have 4 rear snappers.
Apparently, the OnePlus 9E appears to be like set to return with a 5,000mAh battery, which is barely larger than the anticipated batteries on the OnePlus 9 and Professional. Whether or not this implies the OnePlus 9E maintains higher battery life on the expense of larger weight stays to be seen, although we’d count on that to be the trade-off.
In relation to worth, there’s little or no concrete data, although we are able to make some assumptions based mostly on each the anticipated value of the OnePlus 9 and former OnePlus 8 machine.
We count on the brand new flagship OnePlus mannequin to value at the very least $699 / £599 (round AU$1,100), provided that the OnePlus 8 began at that worth and rose to $799 / £699 (round $1,372) for extra RAM and storage. For the 9E, then, we’d anticipate a worth within the area of $599 / £499 (round AU$900) but it surely’s unclear precisely how a lot it should value.
It’s value clarifying that whereas most new experiences now check with the machine because the OnePlus 9E, that identify stays an unofficial assumption, suggesting the inexpensive model of the OnePlus 9 is likely to be referred to as the OnePlus 9 Lite, in any case. In any case, it appears all-but-assured that the OnePlus 9E shall be a less expensive however nonetheless succesful smartphone for 2021.
