According to a report, the OnePlus 9 Lite, which is said to have two different model numbers, LE2100 and LE2101, will be exclusive to India and China, and the 'Lite ' variant will be different from the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro, not the latest Snapdragon 888 processor, It will be powered by Snapdragon 865, which was introduced last year.
Interestingly, OnePlus 9E is said to use a Snapdragon 865 processor, and that leaves us no choice but to wonder if the OnePlus 9E and 9 Lite are the same. There is a possibility that these are the same device or at least very similar to each other and that the "Lite" model is offered for India and China, and the 9E model for the US and European market.
Going back to the OnePlus 9 Lite model, we can say that OnePlus will not market as a flagship phone, so the price is expected to be significantly lower than the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro.
