OnePlus has officially unveiled the OnePlus Ace 2V in China. Though the smartphone is touted as a toned-down variant of the regular OnePlus Ace 2, it does not look like one. The reason is because the Ace 2V comes with a different design. However, its specs make it belong to the same family as the Ace 2.
Most importantly, It is the first Ace V series smartphone from OnePlus. At present, it is not known whether the brand will continue releasing successors down the line.
The OnePlus Ace 2V arrives with a glass sandwich design with a flat frame. Thus, it does not sport a curved display, like OnePlus Ace (OnePlus 11R) and OnePlus 11 but retains the iconic alert slider.
However, unlike the Ace 2 which has a plastic frame, the frame on the Ace 2V is made of metal. Also, the camera layout is different. The device measures 8.15mm in thickness and weighs about 191.5g.
All in all, the phone seems to be a successor of the OnePlus Nord 2T, which it actually is. It is expected to release outside mainland China as OnePlus Nord 3 in the coming months.
As far as specs are concerned, the OnePlus Ace 2V is built around a 6.74-inch flat OLED display with a centered punch-hole. The 10-bit screen offers a resolution of 2772 x 1240 pixels, a 120Hz refresh rate, a 1450 nits peak brightness level., and HDR10+ support.
The handset is powered by a MediaTek Dimesnity 9000 SoC. This chipset is paired with LPDDR5x RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. It boots ColorOS 13 based on Android 13.
On the rear, the phone houses a triple camera system comprising an OIS-assisted 64MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide unit, and a 2MP macro snapper. On the front, it has a 16MP shooter.
Other features of the smartphone include dual stereo speakers, an in-screen fingerprint sensor, dual SIM, 5G, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.3, GNSS, NFC, and USB 2.0 (Type-C).
Finally, the handset draws energy from a 5,000mAh battery and carries support for 80W charging.
