OnePlus 8T was launched a few days ago and since then we have already started receiving information about its successor, OnePlus 9. Yesterday, the first details about the phone arrived with the popular tipster, Max J sharing the device’s code name and a teaser showing what appears to be the front of the device.
And today we have new information about the launch of the device. According to information acquired by Android Central, OnePlus 9 will be launched by the company in mid-March 2021. If it really comes true, it would represent the company launching the phone almost 4 weeks before the launch of its first phone in this one.
That would mean a relatively short time between OnePlus 8T and OnePlus 9, as the former launched a month later than the company’s usual mid-year smartphones.
However, this move might actually make a lot of sense as launching the phone in March would give OnePlus a better chance against its competitors who are planning to launch their flagship phones earlier than usual.
One such company is Samsung, which in turn is planning to increase the launch by over a month. According to reports, the South Korean tech giant will launch the Galaxy S30 series in January, as opposed to its usual February release window.
Speaking of OnePlus 9, we know almost nothing about the device at the moment. However, yesterday’s leak suggested the phone may have a flat display with no curves. Other than that, the OnePlus 9 could also come with a Snapdragon 875 SoC. However, it is not expected to be the first device to do so, as both Samsung and Xiaomi are planning to release phones possibly in January 2021.
The phone may also maintain, or perhaps even improve, the battery charging speed, but the phone’s battery size should remain the same.
More information on this should be revealed by leaks and hints as we approach the launch of the new OnePlus 9, which for obvious reasons will be bigger and better than the company’s current OnePlus 8T.
OnePlus 9 could be launched around mid-March 2021. The phone is expected to have a flat display.
