It is said that the Lite version of the upcoming OnePlus flagship will be made available in two versions: LE2100 and LE2101, with two storage versions planned. The launch of OnePlus 9 Lite could happen by March.
Snapdragon 870, the newly announced Qualcomm SoC, a lite version of the Snapdragon 888 flagship, is allegedly armed by OnePlus 9 Lite. Reports say it will pack in Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 with a 90Hz / 120Hz AMOLED screen and also 65W fast charging, when it comes to leaked OnePlus 9 Lite specifications.
In addition, the OnePlus smartphone can have the same camera optics as the OnePlus 8T. At the rear, the 8T has a four camera system with a main 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor with an F/1.7 aperture, with both OIS and EIS help. The main 48MP sensor is combined with two additional lenses: a 5-megapixel macro lens and a monochrome 2-megapixel lens.

The Redmi Note 10 and the slightly toned-down Redmi Note 10 Lite are supposed to have 33W fast charging technology.
A Snapdragon 750G / Dimensity 820 chipset coupled with 8GB RAM and MIUI 12.5 powered by Android 11 OS would possibly be powered by Redmi Note 10 and Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G.
Redmi Note 10 would fit into a similar sized battery when it comes to the battery, this time with support for at least 33W fast charging. A 5,020mAh battery with support for 22.5W quick charging is available in the just released Redmi Note 9. The Redmi Note 10 and Redmi Note 10 Pro batteries are expected to remain about 5,000mAh with Note 10 Pro support for quicker charging.

It’s a Snapdragon 865+ SoC upgrade that provides incrementally enhanced performance, connectivity and productivity.
For the Redmi K40, Weibing also suggested an AMOLED display, but not a curved 3D version like the Mi 11.
