Previously, the same tipster had stated a Weibo post that the OnePlus 9 series could have three phones when it launches next year, however, in a subsequent post, the tipster went back on its claims.
There's no Third OnePlus 9 Smartphone. OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro Next year Mid-March. That Weibo News is Fake. So no "OnePlus 9 Ultra or Something" as some Speculated.— TechDroider (@techdroider) November 8, 2020
That said, some details about the key specifications of the OnePlus 9 series have been revealed that give us a hint at what to expect from the successors to the OnePlus 8 series.
OnePlus 9 is rumoured to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 processor that’s due out in December. The leak indicates that the upcoming phones in the OnePlus 9 series could support upto 144Hz refresh rate display, IP68 certification, NFC and dual stereo speakers. The company could also provide the same 65W fast charging that it debuted with the OnePlus 8T in October along with support for 40W fast wireless charging.
OnePlus has not officially detailed any plans about the OnePlus 9 yet considering it is too early and the fact that the OnePlus 8T is still a new phone that it launched last month. Having said that, speculations are rife as there have been reports of the company gearing up to launch the OnePlus 9 series nearly a month before its usual time. As per the latest rumours, we could see the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro sometime by mid-March 2021.
