OnePlus 9 series spotted on Spigen website
OnePlus 9 series could launch on March 23
OnePlus 9E could be the name of an affordable phone in the line-up
The OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro and OnePlus 9E have been spotted on case-maker Spigen’s website, ahead of the rumoured launch of the OnePlus 9 series sometime later this month. OnePlus is expected to reveal the launch date of the OnePlus 9 series on March 8 as it has been teasing heavily. An affordable phone in the upcoming line-up previously leaked as OnePlus 9 Lite could be called the OnePlus 9E as that name has cropped up in an earlier leak as well.
According to a report by MySmartPrice who first spotted the names of the upcoming phones on Spigen’s website, the OnePlus 9E could be the name of the affordable phone, after all. This phone has previously leaked as the OnePlus 9 Lite and OnePlus 9R. It is now rumoured that the company will launch the OnePlus 9 series on March 23.
Something I am personally looking forward to! It's more than just "Matte" – you know what I mean when it launches 😉

However, soon after the report, Spigen seemingly took down the names from its website. So if you visit the website’s OnePlus section now, you won’t find the names OnePlus 9, 9 Pro and 9E there. All three phones have been leaked previously, revealing their key specifications.
