OnePlus Ace Racing Edition will probably be the second smartphone after OnePlus Ace in the company’s new ‘Ace’ series.


OnePlus seems all set to unveil its new smartphone, the OnePlus Ace Racing Edition. The device is expected to launch in China followed by a possible global launch with the same or a different moniker. Although the official launch date of the device is tomorrow (i.e May 17, 2022) in its home country China, the device has been leaked a few times on the web, giving us some hints on what to expect. Recently it showed up on the Geekbench testing website as well. However, before its official announcement in China, the company CEO, Li Jie Louis confirmed a couple of features of the smartphone.

OnePlus Ace Racing Edition Display, Processor Details

As per Louis’ post on Weibo, the OnePlus Ace Racing Edition smartphone will feature an LCD screen and not an AMOLED one. While this might come as bad news for die-hard OnePlus fans, what might cheer them up is the support for a high refresh rate of up to 120Hz. The CEO claims that the device can auto-adjust the refresh rate based on the content on the screen. This will indeed result in better battery life.

As for the processor, Louis confirmed the smartphone to run on MediaTek Dimensity 8100-Max SoC. It is worth adding that this information falls in line with what was revealed by the Geekbench listing a few days ago. The listing spotted by MySmartPrice showed the octa-core processor with a 4 + 4 configuration and 2.85GHz peak frequency. The Mali G610 MC6 GPU and 12GB RAM were also shown in the listing.
