The new OnePlus Ace is a smartphone with a 6.7 inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 120 Hz refresh rate, a MediaTek Dimensity 8100 Max processor, and support for 150 watt fast charging – the company says you can plug the phone in for just five minutes to get a 50% charge.
OnePlus is launching the phone first in China, where it will be available April 26, 2022 for 2,499 CNY (~$390) and up. But the phone will also be available in India starting April 28. There’s no word on if or when the OnePlus Ace will make it to other markets.
Under the hood, the phone features a slightly modified version of MediaTek’s Dimensity 8100 processor and 8GB or 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM. Storage options range from 128GB to 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
On the back of the OnePlus Ace, you’ll find three cameras including a 50MP primary camera, an 8MP ultrawide camera, and a 2MP macro camera. There’s a 16MP front-facing camera that’s positioned inside a cut-out in the top center portion of the display. There’s also an in-display fingerprint reader.
OnePlus says its 150W SuperVOOC fast charging technology shouldn’t put too much wear and tear on the phone’s 4,500 mAh battery. After 1,600 full charge cycles, the battery should still hold about 80% of its original capacity. So if you charge the phone once, it should still be pretty usable in four years.
The OnePlus Ace supports WiFi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, and 5G connectivity and features a USB Type-C port for charging and data.
