OnePlus Ace 3 Launches on January 4 – Design Confirmed

The OnePlus Ace 3 will be a toned-down flagship when compared to the OnePlus 12. For example, the device will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 instead of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 that powers the latest flagship.

In addition to the launch date, OnePlus also teased the upcoming Mingsha Gold color for the OnePlus Ace 3. Thanks to the images, we can spot some of the details in the smartphone’s design and the features coming with it. For example, the device will be equipped with a metal frame. The phone’s design will be similar to the OnePlus 12 5G which also confirms OnePlus’ intent to launch it as the OnePlus 12R in international markets.

According to OnePlus, the OnePlus Ace 3 comes with a gold melting glass process for the Minghsa Gold color option. This technology is superior to the existing metallic finish but also increases the cost of the smartphone.

Pricing And Key Specifications

The teaser of the OnePlus Ace 3 also confirms that the power button and volume rockers are on the right side of the device. OnePlus will also keep the alert slider on the left side of the smartphone. OnePlus also confirmed that the new device will ship with a BOE X1 Screen with a 1.5K resolution.
