This week, OnePlus unveiled a new edition of the OnePlus Ace (OnePlus 10R in India and elsewhere) in China. This is the OnePlus Ace Racing Edition, which has a redesigned look, some upgrades on the camera front, and more. Here’s a peek at everything the OnePlus Ace Racing Edition has to offer.
Specifications and Features of the OnePlus Ace Racing Edition
The OnePlus Ace Racing Edition ditches the Realme GT Neo 3-inspired design in favour of one inspired by the iPhone 13 Pro, which features three large camera housings stacked in what seems to be a triangle. This arrangement appears to be comparable to that seen on the OnePlus 10 Pro. It is available in Grey and Blue.
A punch-hole display (this time in the left corner) spans 6.59-inches, which is somewhat smaller than the 6.7-inch display on the OnePlus Ace. The Racing Edition has a Full HD+ LCD display with a refresh rate of 120Hz, AI Eye Protection, and a peak brightness of up to 600 nits.

The camera section is also distinctive. The 64MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP macro camera are all included in the OnePlus Ace Racing Edition. There’s also a 16MP front-facing camera. Unfortunately, there is no support for OIS. Speaking of missing parts, the alert slider is also absent.
A 5,000mAh battery powers the device and supports 67W rapid charging. This is slower than the OnePlus Ace’s charging rates of 150W/80W. However, the processor in both devices is the same. The gadget is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 8100-Max SoC and can accommodate up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. It is powered by ColorOS 12.1, which is based on Android 12.
5G connectivity, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.3, NFC, a 3.5m audio connection, twin SIM card slots, and a USB Type-C connector are all available. A side-mounted fingerprint scanner, Face Unlock, an X-axis linear vibration motor, dual stereo speakers, Hyperbooost gaming mode, an 8-layer cooling system, and other features are also included.
