Earlier this month, leaked CAD renders gave us our first look at the upcoming OnePlus 9. Just a few days after the renders of the OnePlus 9 broke cover, renders of the OnePlus 9 Pro also leaked online. As we reported last month, OnePlus is planning to release the OnePlus 9 series earlier than usual, sometime in March next year. According to a new rumor, OnePlus will be launching a third device alongside the successors to two of its best Android phones of 2020.

As per leaker Max Jambor, the third OnePlus 9 series device will be called the OnePlus 9E. While no details are available currently, it looks like the OnePlus 9E will be a similar device to the Samsung Galaxy S10e, offering toned-down specs and a more affordable price tag than the OnePlus 9. What also remains to be seen is if the OnePlus 9E will be a significantly more compact phone than the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro.
