OnePlus Ace has been launched in the Chinese market. It comes with the latest MediaTek Dimensity 8100-MAX chip encased in a fresh new design, although the overall phone itself is a repackaged Realme GT Neo 3 that launched a while back. Let’s learn about the specs, features, availability, and expected price in Nepal of the OnePlus Ace.
OnePlus Ace Overview:
Design and Display
OnePlus has gone with a total design overhaul on the Ace. The phone features flat frames and round corners which no prior OnePlus device has had. Moreover, a seam in the middle divides the rear panel into two parts creating a two-tone finish. Then there’s the new squarish camera module that houses three lenses in a triangular fashion and an LED flash.
Moving on, the front of the OnePlus Ace is home to a 6.7-inch FHD+ OLED panel that supports a fluid 120Hz refresh rate. Besides, there’s support for up to a 720Hz touch sampling rate for gaming. It covers 100% of the DCI P3 color gamut whilst boasting brightness of up to 1000 nits as well. The HDR10+ support on the device allows for a pleasant binging experience.
Performance and Memory
Driving the OnePlus Ace is the new MediaTek Dimensity 8100-MAX SoC. Besides the onboard GPU, OnePlus had added an additional graphics unit to handle games and boost frame rates. Moreover, the included HyperBoost feature aims to reduce frame drops and stutters. Also, the phone uses the largest Vapor Chamber of all of the OnePlus phones to date.
All of this has been paired with fast UFS 3.1 storage of up to 512GB and LPDDR5 RAM of up to 12GB. The device boots on Android 12-based ColorOS 12 out of the box. Yet, if the phone ever makes its way to the international market, it will boot on OxygenOS 12.
Moving on, the OnePlus Ace has a triple camera island on the back, with the primary sensor being a 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor. The phone also has an 8MP Sony IMX355 ultra-wide lens and a 2MP macro sensor. For selfies and video calling, the phone includes a 16MP Samsung ISOCELL S5K3P9SP lens on the front hole-punch cutout.
Rest of the Specs
The 4,500 mAh battery on the OnePlus Ace supports 150W SuperVOOC fast charging which takes the phone from 0% to 100% in around 17 minutes only. Moreover, OnePlus claims retention of 80% battery health even after 4 years of usage. For this, the phone has received TÜV Rheinland certification too.
Regarding connectivity, there’s support for 5G, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, and WiFi 6E on board. For security, OnePlus has included an in-display fingerprint sensor.
