It is less than a month that OnePlus has announced its second flagship smartphone for the year and we have started seeing leaks around the OnePlus 9 series already. While a few days back we heard that the next generation OnePlus devices will come in slightly earlier than the schedule and now a leak suggests that for the first time there could be three different phones in this series.

The leak hints that the base variant may come with a model number LE2110. The OnePlus 9 Pro has model numbers that could ideally be based on different variants for different regions. These model numbers are LE2117, LE2119, and LE2120. Lastly, another device bearing a model number LE2127 was spotted as well, however, not much is known about this mysterious device.

Interestingly, we had earlier spotted a new OnePlus device with a codename Lemonade and the initial two alphabets of the leaked model numbers suggest that it is the OnePlus 9 series that we are looking at. Also, according to reports, this mysterious device could just be the mid-year update that OnePlus rolls out every year and in all probability, this is the OnePlus 9T that is already in the works.
