Today, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has confirmed in an interview with the News18 that its cheaper 5G smartphone the OnePlus 9R in the OnePlus 9 series will be launched exclusively for the Indian market alongside the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro, and OnePlus Watch on March 23rd.
In the interview, Pete Lau said that the OnePlus 9R will bring a premium OnePlus smartphone experience at an affordable price point in India and added that the phone will have must-have features of a flagship for smooth scrolling, immersive gaming controls, and a superior viewing experience. Based on the response, the company is bringing the OnePlus 9R which will further be a balanced handset with the latest technology and class-leading industrial design offering a superior user experience overall and can also offer fast and smooth experiences for daily usage and heavy gameplay.
Even though earlier rumors revealed that the phone will be powered by Snapdragon 690 5G that was introduced first in Nord N10 last year in the USA. But some rumors said that the phone could be powered by the old Snapdragon 865 SoC, or might be used the latest Snapdragon 870 SoC.
We should know more details and the full specification of the OnePlus 9R in the coming days before the launch event.
