OnePlus launched a version OnePlus Ice Last week, which was rebadged Realme GT Neo 3. Between the upper mid-range silicon, 120Hz FHD+ OLED display, fast charging, and the ~$387 price tag, there was a lot to like about the phone.

Unfortunately, the OnePlus Ace was a China-only version. However, the company has just announced the OnePlus 10R, which is actually a rebranded OnePlus Ace.

Starting with the OnePlus 10R, it is mostly identical to the OnePlus Ace. That means you get this stylish two-tone back cover, which features a striped pattern on the left side and a smooth finish on the right. Although the similarities are just beginning.

This latest OnePlus phone offers a Dimensity 8100-Max processor, a 6.7-inch FHD+ 120Hz OLED display (20.1:9, Gorilla Glass 5, HDR10+) and a triple rear camera system. The latter consists of a 50MP IMX766 main camera with OIS, an 8MP ultrawide lens (119.7° field of view) and a 2MP macro camera. You can tap on the 16MP camera to take selfies and video calls.

Like the OnePlus Ace and Realme GT Neo 3, the OnePlus Ace is also available in two variants. There is a variant with 80W charging and a 5000mAh battery, as well as a 150W charging model with a 4500mAh battery. The latter, known as the OnePlus 10R with 150W SuperVOOC Endurance Edition, also promises to retain 80% of its battery capacity after 1,600 charge cycles. So you should only see significant deterioration after about four years.

Either way, fast shipping is here. The 80W version promises a 1-100% charge in 32 minutes, while the 150W variant promises to go from zero to 100% in 17 minutes.

One of the main areas of differentiation is in software. OnePlus 10R comes with Oxygen OS 12.1 on top of Android 12, compared to Ace and Realme GT Neo 3 which offer Color OS in China.

A nice bonus on top of the software is that the phone will receive three “major” Android OS updates and four years of security patches.

Other notable features include an in-display fingerprint sensor, dual stereo speakers, Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6.

Price and availability

The OnePlus 10R starts charging 80W at INR 38,999 (~$509) for the 8GB/128GB model, while the 12GB/256GB variant retails for INR42,999 (~$561). Expect to find the phone in Forest Green and Sierra Black colors.

Meanwhile, the 150W version starts at INR 43,999 (~$574). It only comes in one color route and memory configuration: Sierra Black with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.

Either way, the phone will reach general sales on May 4, 2022. You can find it at oneplus And Amazon Plus a few other retailers. It is unlikely that this phone will reach markets other than India, as other ‘R’ phones have always been India-exclusive.
