After OnePlus officially became a sub-brand of Oppo, the parent company transferred the rights to the Ace line to the sub-brand. The result was the release of the OnePlus Ace; which, in fact, borrowed features from the model of another Oppo sub-brand – Realme GT Neo 3. Now the company is preparing to release OnePlus Ace Racing Edition.
The smartphone has already managed to get noticed on the TENAA site; which revealed that the design here will be from the OnePlus 10 Pro. The company announced today that the official announcement of the OnePlus Ace Racing Edition will take place on May 17, and it will be the world’s first smartphone with an IPS display and the Dimensity 8000 Max chipset. Recall that OnePlus Ace has the same chip, but the panel is OLED.
The Dimensity 8000 Max uses 5 nanometer process technology standards, has eight processor cores, including four Cortex-A78 cores with a clock frequency of 2.85 GHz and another quartet of Cortex-A55 cores, overclocked to a frequency of 2.0 GHz. The graphics subsystem is represented by Mali-G610 MC6.
OnePlus Ace Racing Edition details leaked
It is known that OnePlus Ace Racing Edition will receive a 6.59-inch screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, 8/12 GB of RAM and 128/256 GB of memory, a 4890 mAh battery with a fast charge of 65 watts and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. The resolution of the front camera will be 16 megapixels and the main camera will be triple 64 megapixels + 8 megapixels + 2 megapixels. Pricing for the OnePlus Ace Racing Edition is expected to start at $295.
Early buyers have already started receiving their OnePlus Ace smartphones; which have been like the OnePlus 10R outside of China. The first impressions of the device on social networks were not entirely positive due to overheating.
So users are reporting real overheating issues; which makes it uncomfortable to hold the smartphone for a long time while gaming. One user reported that after one hour of gaming, the device’s battery temperature had already reached 43.7°C; and the CPU temperature reached 46.5°C. Another confirmed that the battery in his OnePlus Ace reached 44.6°C and the CPU temperature reached 60.4°C.
These incidents proved to be quite common; like the tag #OnePlus Phones So Hot That It Burns Hands has already appeared on Weibo. That being said, OnePlus has already released an official press release stating that high phone temperatures while gaming are commonplace. The temperature values reported by users are quite as expected; and are normal and will not affect daily functionality of the phone as claimed by OnePlus.
