In addition to launching some flagship killer phones, OnePlus has decided to dip its toes in the affordable phone market too. We already have a couple of budget OnePlus phones on the market, and it looks like the company ready to bring out more. If you are keeping tabs on the rumors, then you probably have a good idea about the upcoming OnePlus budget phone and its specs.

Adding on to that, the reliable tipster Evan Blass has now leaked the moniker OnePlus 9R. According to him, this is going to be the next OnePlus budget phone. He claims to have spotted a source code that mentions the name OnePlus 9R. Here, check it out -

His short post on Voice, as you can see, doesn't reveal much about the phone itself. It only gives us the name of the device which was earlier rumoured to be called the OnePlus 9E/9 Lite. "Goodbye OnePlus 9E/9 Lite...", the post says. It's worth pointing out that this is the same phone that is expected to hit the market alongside the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro.

As for the specifications of this particular device, we already have a decent idea of what to expect. Thanks to all the leaks and rumours, we are expecting the phone to come with a 6.5-inch 90Hz display with an FHD+ resolution. The Snapdragon 690 SoC is said to be at the heart of this phone alongside 8GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage.

OnePlus could launch the OnePlus 9R as an affordable option

For optics, the OnePlus 9R is tipped to come equipped with a 64MP primary camera and an 8MP wide-angle lens. Given the affordable price tag that it is expected to come with, we don't expect this particular phone to have any Hasselblad camera integration like the OnePlus 9 Pro. The handset is also said to come with a 5,000 mAh battery, but that's all we know about the OnePlus 9R for now.

The OnePlus 9R, for those of you who don't know, is expected to come out alongside the highly anticipated OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro next month. Both of those phones are expected to carry a powerful set of specs and features including the Snapdragon 888 SoC, 65W fast-charging support, and more.
