OneinOneone is working on Lite version of its 10 R

It's just been a few days since OnePlus launched its OnePlus 10 series, comprising two new smartphones, the OnePlus 10 and the OnePlus 10 Pro in China. A new report shows that the company is working on a Lite version of the same.

The OnePlus 10 series is yet to be officially launched in India and the more affordable OnePlus 9 RT was launched last week. A successor to the OnePlus 9 R and 9 RT might be coming in the form of the OnePlus 10 R, and as per a new rumour, it could pack a surprising punch in performance.

This new smartphone is expected to ship with MediaTek 9000 chipset, according to GSM Arena.

After a long time of sticking with only Qualcomm chipsets, OnePlus went the MediaTek route with the Nord 2, and now that the Taiwanese chipmaker has a proper flagship SoC, it's ready to induct that into the flagship series, even though the 10 R will only be limited to some regions.

According to this rumour, the reason OnePlus didn't go with the Dimensity 9000 in the 10 or 10 Pro has to do with North America's love of the mmWave 5 G and the lack of support for that.

The OnePlus 10 R is headed to China and India with a 120 Hz AMOLED display and at least 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.

The OnePlus 10 R could hit markets towards the end of Q 2 2022, according to the markets. The delay has to do with the company wanting to give the 9 RT some room to breathe.
