After OnePlus was taken over by OPPO, the brand almost lost its face. The number of smartphones released under the auspices of OnePlus has increased manifold, but they lack uniqueness – most models are re-releases of other BBK devices. The same can be said about the OnePlus Ace presented on April 21 . In fact, this is an almost complete copy of Realme GT Neo 3.
The device received a stylish case with flat edges in the style of the latest iPhones, but at the same time it does not have a physical sound mode switch – a OnePlus proprietary chip. The main characteristics of the novelty are not much different from Realme GT Neo 3.
The OnePlus Ace features a 6.7-inch OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, 950 nits peak brightness, and HDR10+ support. The panel is covered with Gorilla Glass 5. The heart of the device is the improved Dimensity 8100 Max processor. It is reported to be more powerful in games, take better photos in the dark, and perform faster AI calculations than the regular version of the 8100. The chip is supplemented with up to 12 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of permanent memory.
On the back of the Ace is a fairly modest set of sensors. The main 50 MP sensor with optical stabilization is assisted by an 8-megapixel ultra-wide and a 2 MP macro module. For selfies, a 16-megapixel front camera is installed.
The device has stereo speakers, NFC, Android 12 with ColorOS 12.1 interface and the main feature is 150-watt reactive charging. She is able to replenish the battery by 4500 mAh up to 50% in just 5 minutes. Wireless and reverse charging is also supported.
