OPPO sub-brand OnePlus will launch the OnePlus Ace about a week from today — on April 21 — in China. A week after that, on April 28, the company will announce the OnePlus 10R alongside the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite in India.

(Update, April 22: The OnePlus Ace has gone official with a MediaTek Dimensity 8100 Max 5G chip!)

What’s interesting is that both upcoming handsets look virtually identical, suggesting that the Ace will be sold under a different name in a different market. The latest teaser for the OnePlus Ace posted on China’s Weibo microblogging platform has confirmed the phone’s flat sides and back, as well as its triple-camera setup and fine lines that run from the base of the camera island to the bottom.

The India-bound 10R is likewise set to arrive in black and gradient designs, just like the Ace. The Ace/10R also won’t have OnePlus’ iconic alert slider, though that’s hardly surprising given OnePlus’ most recent non-flagship models.

OnePlus China and OnePlus India have said that the Ace/10R will be fitted with a 5nm MediaTek Dimensity 8100 5G chipset, which can be found inside the Realme GT Neo 3, too. Based on initial leaks, it appears that the Dimensity 8100 can outperform last year’s top-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chip in certain benchmarks.

The two devices are also set to offer 150-watt fast charging, same as the higher-end variant of the GT Neo 3. OnePlus says its 150-watt charging standard will allow users to get a full charge after just 17 minutes plugged in. Meanwhile, the OnePlus 10R is rumored to have an 80-watt fast-charging version, too, but it’s unclear if the Ace will do.

On the display side, both the OnePlus Ace and OnePlus 10R are rumored to sport a 6.7-inch AMOLED screen with a centered punch hole, an FHD+ resolution, and a 120Hz refresh rate. The panel is said to be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5, while the primary rear and front cameras could be of the 50- and 16-megapixel varieties, respectively.
