OnePlus Ace smartphone has finally been officially launched in the brand’s home market of China. The phone marks the launch of a brand new series of handsets from the house of OnePlus. The device has arrived as the first OnePlus smartphone to pack a whopping 150W fast charging capability. The OnePlus Ace is also the first MediaTek Dimensity 8100 Max SoC-powered smartphone in the world.
OnePlus Ace Design And Display Features
The OnePlus Ace has a boxy design with a flat rounded display. The screen has almost non-existent bezels and a hole in the middle to house the selfie shooter. At the rear, there’s a large square camera module that houses a large main sensor, two additional snappers, and the dual-LED flash unit. The device comes in Blue and Black color models featuring a frosted glass on the back, which doesn’t attract fingerprints.
The OnePlus Ace is fitted with a 6.7-inch full HD+ AMOLED display. The screen boasts a 120Hz refresh rate and a whopping 1,000Hz touch-sampling rate. Thanks to an independent graphics chip, the frame rate of the device is doubled. Notably, the company claims that the Ace has the world’s first new super crystalline graphite cooling with a large heat dissipation area.

Moving on, the OnePlus Ace’s Dimensity 8100 Max processor is built on the 5nm fabrication process and has a maximum clock speed of 2.85GHz. The chipset is paired with the Mali-G510 MC6 GPU for smooth gaming performance. The device comes in three RAM and storage options – 8GB + 128GB, 12GB + 256GB, and 12GB + 512GB. Software-wise, the new OnePlus smartphone boots Android 12 with ColorOS 12.1 out-of-the-box.
