After several weeks of leaks, OnePlus has finally announced the OnePlus Ace 3, its sub-flagship offering, in the Chinese market. With a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip on board, the device competes with models such as the Realme GT 5, Redmi K70, iQOO Neo 9, and Honor 90 GT in China. Here are the specifications, features, and price of the device.

Design and display

The OnePlus Ace 3 shares a similar design language with the latest numbered OnePlus flagships and Ace-branded phones, such as the Ace 2 and Ace 2 Pro. On the front, the Ace 3 has an OLED panel with curved edges and a center perforation, and on the back, a round camera module with a triple module. It measures 163.30 x 75.27 x 8.8 mm and weighs 207 grams. Ace 3 is available in Star Black, Moon Sea Blue and Sand Gold colors.

The Ace 3 features a 6.7-inch ProXDR OLED panel made by BOE, which offers a 1.5K resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and 10-bit color reproduction. In addition, the screen has a peak brightness of 4,500 nits, the same as OnePlus 12. Furthermore, the screen is optimized for an enhanced gaming experience.

Specifications and camera

The OnePlus Ace 3 is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, which is the same chip as last year’s OnePlus 11. It is the first SD8G2-based phone to come with a massive 5500 mAh battery. Although the device supports 100W wired charging, there is no wireless charging.

The Ace 3 is equipped with up to 16GB of LPDDR5x RAM and up to 1TB of storage. It comes pre-installed with Android 14 based on ColorOS 14. It comes with other features such as dual SIM support, 5G, Wi-Fi 7, Bluetooth 5.4, GPS, NFC, dual stereo speakers, x-axis liner motor, and notification slider.

For selfies, OnePlus Ace 3 has a 16-megapixel camera on the front. The rear camera has a 50-megapixel Sony IMX890 main camera with OIS support. It is complemented by a 2-megapixel macro camera and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens.
