OnePlus has been on a roll lately – the company recently launched the OnePlus 11, its latest flagship for 2023, and even showed off a special concept phone during MWC 2023. With that said, the company’s Chinese social media page recently teased the OnePlus Ace 2V, which is set to launch soon.
The post (which was shared on Chinese social media website Weibo) showcased what can expect in terms of design, as well as a release date – the Ace 2V is set to launch on March 7 in China. For its design, the Ace V2 will feature a rear panel with a glossy finish, surrounded by flat sides. The phone’s rear camera set-up will feature a triple-lens camera, alongside with a LED flash, while the front display will feature slim bezels and a hole-punch camera. The phone will also feature the alert slider switch, a signature design trademark featured in countless other OnePlus phones, and one which fans have been clamoring for.
As for the display itself, the phone will feature a 6.74-inch OLED screen with a 2772 x 1240 pixel resolution, and a peak brightness of 1450 nits. The display also comes with a 120Hz refresh rate, and HDR10+. It’s reported that the display will also come with an in-display fingerprint scanner, although this isn’t too surprising given that nearly every new Android phone nowadays comes with the same biometric method.
In terms of specs, the OnePlus Ace 2V will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset, and will be available in different storage configurations including a 12 GB RAM + 256 GB version, and a 16 GB RAM + 512 GB variant. As for optics, the device will feature a 16-megapixel front camera and OIS-enabled 64-megapixel triple rear cameras with OIS support. Powering this entire set-up is a 5,000mAh battery with 80W charging support.
2023 has been a pretty good year for OnePlus so far, with the OnePlus 11 getting generally favourable reception from critics and fans alike. The phone packs some impressive hardware, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, Android 13, a large 6.7-inch AMOLED display, a triple-camera set-up with Hasseblad colour calibration, and up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage. With all said though, one of the most stand-out features of the phone is its pricing, coming in at just £729.
Additionally, the company also showed off its concept version of the OnePlus 11 at MWC 2023, which features a new liquid-cooling system, and a rather different take on the original phone’s design with glowing accents built into the back of the phone. OnePlus calls its cooling method the “Active CryoFlux” system, which the company says lessens heat build-up during gaming and charging.
Going back to the OnePlus Ace 2V, there’s no mention (at the moment at least) about how much the phone will cost, and where it will be available, if it ever gets sold outside of Chinese markets. It might be possible that the company might sell the Ace 2V under a different name, similar to what it did with some of its other handsets.
