Earlier this month, OnePlus teased a special announcement for March 8. While there were no specific details given at the time, fans of the brand immediately expected it to be about the OnePlus 9. The company confirmed that the OnePlus 9 series, which will include its newest flagship smartphones, will be unveiled on Tuesday, March 23.

Fans can enable the “Set reminder” button so they can be notified once the OnePlus 9 event is about to start.
