The OnePlus Ace made its debut in China a month ago, tomorrow the company will launch a new model dubbed OnePlus Ace Racing Edition. Despite what the name might suggest, this is not just a new paint job, in fact, this model has several major differences.
The Racing Edition is already listed on OppoShop.cn, which shows off product images. Evleaks also has images of the phone in Black. See? No racing stripes at all. But did you notice the recessed Power button? That is probably a fingerprint too.

It is needed because this model switches from a 120Hz AMOLED panel to a 120Hz LCD (6.59” in size, according to TENAA). The President of OnePlus China, Louis Li, posted on Weibo that the display will support 6 different refresh rates.
If you zoom in on the images of the back you will see the 64MP label for the main camera and the 15-25mm marking, giving the focal lengths of the main and ultra wide cameras (in 35mm equivalent). As a reminder, the regular Ace has a 50+8+2 MP camera setup on its back. Anyway, another teaser image of the Racing Edition model offers a glimpse at a 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom (the regular Ace doesn’t have a jack).
We don’t know what other changes will be made to the hardware, but we do know that the chipset will be the same – a Dimensity 8100-Max.

One other thing will change too, the price. The regular Ace starts at CNY 2,500, but Mr. Li called the OnePlus Ace Racing Edition one of the best phones in the CNY 2,000 price range ($300/€285/₹23,00), so this one should be cheaper. Check back tomorrow for the full reveal.
