OnePlus disclosed its plans of launching the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 smartphones long ago. Today, the company unleashed the first from this series, namely the OnePlus Ace Pro. The lowest configuration version costs 3499 yuan ($518).
The phone is available in two color variants – Moonstone Black and Jade Green. It adopts a curved glass back cover and a plastic middle frame. Among them, the green version is the world’s first smartphone to use a “Drilling and Double AG Process”. Another color variant has a bright surface material, which uses the industry’s first “Glazed Glass Technology”.

OnePlus Ace Pro Is Ideal For Gaming
By the way, there will be a customized version dubbed the OnePlus Ace Pro Genshin Impact Limited Edition (Walnut), which is going to hit the market in October. In this regard, we have to say that the OnePlus Ace Pro also has an exclusive game experience optimization plan, codenamed “Alchemy”. As you guess, the upcoming model will use its tuned version.
However, even with this device, the company could reach outstanding results. In the “Genshin Impact” 810p image quality test, the OnePlus Ace Pro achieved a performance of 59.3 frames per hour.
That’s not difficult to guess that the OnePlus Ace Pro focuses on mainstream mobile games. So it’s ideal for mobile gamers who spend many hours by playing games on their phones.
In addition, OnePlus announced that it had become the first mobile phone brand in China to strategically cooperate with the Unity engine. OnePlus Ace Pro will open a communication interface to the Unity engine, bringing game performance with higher frame rates, more stability, and lower power consumption. In the next 2 years, OnePlus will reach the adaptation of 50 games.
