The highly anticipated OnePlus Ace 3V has arrived, making history as the world's first smartphone powered by the all-new Snapdragon 7+ Gen 3 chipset. This cutting-edge processor boasts the latest Cortex-X4 CPU core, surpassing the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 found in the original OnePlus Ace 3 and offering improved performance closer to the flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.

Design Revamp:

The OnePlus Ace 3V sports a sleek new design, ditching the prominent circular camera bump for a more subtle dual-camera setup with a circular flash. The display undergoes a transformation as well, transitioning from curved to a user-preferred flat AMOLED panel.

Stunning Display:

Immerse yourself in vibrant visuals with the Ace 3V's 6.74-inch AMOLED display featuring a sharp 1240 x 2772 resolution and a smooth 120Hz refresh rate. The display flaunts 10-bit color depth with 100% DCI-P3 coverage, delivering exceptional color accuracy and richness. Peak brightness reaches an impressive 2,150 nits, ensuring excellent visibility even in bright sunlight. Additionally, DC Dimming technology provides a comfortable viewing experience at lower brightness levels, while high-frequency PWM (2,160Hz) minimizes flicker.

Powerful Cameras:

The rear camera system features a 50MP Sony IMX882 main sensor with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) for capturing stunning photos and videos. This sensor boasts a larger 1/2-inch size compared to the IMX890 on the standard Ace 3.  Accompanying the main sensor is an 8MP ultra-wide sensor for capturing expansive landscapes. Video enthusiasts will appreciate the ability to record 4K resolution footage at 60fps with both Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) and OIS working in tandem. The 16MP front-facing camera housed within the punch-hole display caters to flawless selfies and clear video calls.

Performance & Battery:

The OnePlus Ace 3V pairs the groundbreaking Snapdragon 7+ Gen 3 processor with ample memory options – 12GB or 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM – ensuring smooth multitasking and app performance. Storage options range from 256GB to 512GB of UFS 4.0 high-speed storage, providing ample space for all your apps, photos, and videos.  A large 9,140mm² vapor chamber cooling system keeps the phone running cool during demanding tasks.

The Ace 3V comes pre-installed with the latest Android 14 operating system, customized with either OxygenOS 14 or ColorOS 14 depending on the region. The phone packs a substantial 5,500mAh battery that supports OnePlus's blazing-fast 100W SuperVOOC S charging technology. With this technology, a quick 26-minute charge can take the phone from 1% to 100%, according to official figures.

Additional Features:

The OnePlus Ace 3V boasts an IP65 dust and water resistance rating, providing protection against accidental splashes and dust ingress. OnePlus claims the touch panel remains responsive even when the display is wet, ensuring seamless operation in various conditions. The fan-favorite 3-position alert slider makes a welcome return, offering convenient control over notification profiles.

Color Options & Availability:

The OnePlus Ace 3V comes in two captivating color options: Magic Purple and Titanium Air. The phone is currently available for pre-order in China, with prices starting at CNY 2,000 (approximately $280/€255/₹23,500) for the base 12GB/256GB variant. Open sales are set to begin on March 25th.

International Availability:

While international availability details remain unclear, rumors suggest the Ace 3V might serve as the foundation for the upcoming OnePlus Nord 4. OnePlus has officially confirmed the launch of the Nord CE4 on April 1st, featuring the standard Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 processor. The official launch date for the OnePlus Nord 4 itself is yet to be revealed.
