OnePlus Ace 2 Gets New Vegan Leather Option

OnePlus has confirmed to launch the Ace 2 in a new vegan leather option in China. The special variant might launch in India in the form of the 11R 5G. OnePlus revealed that the special vegan leather variant of its Ace series phone will be available in China from April 17.
