OnePlus 9 series was announced in India last month. The series comprises of OnePlus 9R, OnePlus 9, and OnePlus 9 Pro all 5G smartphones, and the price of the cheapest smartphone(OnePlus 9R 5G) in the series starts from INR 39,999. The base version of the OnePlus 9R comes with Snapdragon 870 5G processor and this year the pricing is a bit higher than usual in India, and this might be happening due to the partnership with Hasselblad.
Chinese tipster claims that the OnePlus 9R 5G has completed inclusion in all three major certificates and is ready to launch in China. He mentions that the phone is similar to the OnePlus 8T but with a replaced processor with Snapdragon 870. The phone is expected to be priced between 3,000 Yuan, as mentioned by the tipster, which is under INR 34,000. This makes the phone literally cheaper than the Indian version.
