OnePlus has been known for its premium smartphones, and they continue to push the boundaries with every new release. In February, the company introduced the Ace 2 smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, followed by the Ace 2V in March, which was powered by the Dimensity 9000. Now, the latest leaks suggest that OnePlus is developing a Pro variant of the Ace 2, which will be equipped with the cutting-edge Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, the same as the regular OnePlus 11.
The Leaks and Rumors
According to the reputable tipster Digital Chat Station, the OnePlus Ace 2 Pro is expected to flaunt a 1080p+ curved screen that “seems to have something new.” This display is currently undergoing testing by the Chinese display maker BOE, ensuring a high standard of quality and performance.
While the Chinese tipster did not disclose additional specifications of the OnePlus Ace 2 Pro, there are rumors suggesting that the smartphone will share its cameras and battery with the standard Ace 2. If these rumors hold true, the Ace 2 Pro is expected to be equipped with a sizable 5,000 mAh battery and a camera setup comprising four lenses – a 50MP primary camera, an 8MP ultrawide camera, a 2MP macro camera, and a 16MP front-facing camera for selfies.
What We Know So Far
OnePlus has not released any official information about the Ace 2 Pro, but based on the leaks and rumors, we can make some educated guesses about what to expect from the smartphone. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor is expected to provide significant performance improvements over the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset that powers the regular Ace 2.
The 1080p+ curved screen is also an exciting development, and it will be interesting to see what “something new” BOE has come up with to make this display stand out from the crowd. The camera setup is also impressive, with a 50MP primary camera and an 8MP ultrawide camera providing high-quality photos and videos.
Possible Release Date and Pricing
OnePlus has not announced a release date for the Ace 2 Pro, but if they follow their previous release patterns, we can expect it to be launched sometime in the second half of the year. As for pricing, it is too early to make any accurate predictions, but we can expect the Ace 2 Pro to be priced higher than the standard Ace 2 due to its more powerful processor and improved display.
OnePlus continues to innovate and push the boundaries of what is possible with smartphones, and the rumored Ace 2 Pro is no exception. While we don’t have any official information yet, the leaks and rumors suggest that this smartphone will be a powerful and impressive addition to the OnePlus lineup.
