OnePlus 9 Lite could be a cheap high-end model with an older processor

OnePlus 9E or OnePlus 9 Lite will not be a mid-range smartphone, as its name suggests. Instead, OnePlus could equip it with high-end hardware, but a generation ago, similar to that of the company’s previous smartphone models. In fact, the OnePlus 8 and 8T models are still considered the “flagships” of the brand, so users will not receive a much different experience in terms of performance.

OnePlus 9 Lite could use Snapdragon 865

For the first time in the history of the OnePlus brand, a new series of phones will be launched with three different models, according to rumors. It seems that we will already have the traditional OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro, about which we have heard details, as well as a new OnePlus 9 Lite model, about which we also heard that it could be called OnePlus 9E.

The latter would be a budget model, the price being quite low compared to attract price-sensitive users, but who still want a high-performance computer. While the OnePlus 9 is expected at a price of about $ 800 / euro, and the OnePlus 9 Pro could reach 900 or even 1,000 euros, the “Lite” model could cost somewhere around 600 euros.

And to reach this price threshold, the company will offer a phone with an “outdated” chipset, a Snapdragon 865, the one we currently find on all flagships of the moment. In fact, the performance of the new Snapdragon 888 compared to 865 is about 20%, so probably in normal use most users will not even feel any difference.

We don’t have any other information about the capabilities of the OnePlus 9 Lite, but it may have a lot in common with the recently launched OnePlus 8T, with a 90 or 120 Hz screen, fast charging at 65W and probably an updated design, aligned with the series OnePlus 9.

The launch of the OnePlus 9 series is expected sometime in the spring of 2021.
