- Rumor has it that the OnePlus 10R could actually be called the OnePlus Ace.
- A company executive was seen posting over the phone on China’s social media platform Weibo.
- The “Ace” moniker comes from an Oppo smartphone series of the same name.
OnePlus’s brand identity seems to be getting thinner with its upcoming phones. We’ve known it as the OnePlus 10R for some time, thanks to the leaked space and render. However, new information suggests that OnePlus may borrow the phone’s name from its mothership Oppo.
Weibo Tipster Digital Chat Station recently shared a phone space called “OnePlus Ace”. It is supposed to get MediaTek Dimensity 8100 chip, 150W charging and a 50MP Sony IMX766 camera sensor. All of these spaces have been blamed for the so-called OnePlus 10R in recent leaks.

OnePlus executive Liu Fengshu also released the “Ace” moniker, which has been seen posting on Weibo using the phone. He deleted that post but you can see a machine-translated screenshot below.

For those unfamiliar with OnePlus’s new, borrowed branding, Oppo used the name “Ace” for its two smartphones in 2019 and 2020. The first was the Oppo Reno Ace with Snapdragon 855 Plus processor and the second was the Ace 2 paired with the Snapdragon 865. Following these two devices, Oppo did not release an Ace series phone in 2021, probably due to the OnePlus lending the brand name. It is entirely possible that OnePlus will only use the name of the new series in China. We will know only after making the company official.
That said, the name of the upcoming OnePlus phone is not the only thing the company can borrow from its stable friends. The device itself is a uniform copy of the Realme GT Neo 3, both in terms of design and hardware specifications. Real-life photos of the phone have also been leaked, confirming previously released information.
This is not the first time that OnePlus phones have shared features with other devices from BBK stable. However, the OnePlus Ace (or OnePlus 10R) is probably the first device that is so original. At the moment, the company can call it “Oppo Ace 3” or “Realme GT Neo 3 OnePlus Edition”.
Meanwhile, Oppo seems to be getting ready to launch the OnePlus 10 which we didn’t have before. It is called the Oppo Reno 8 and it is said that a Vanilla OnePlus 10 series device should have. Go to the figure.
