A Cheaper Dimensity 9000-powered OnePlus Ace 2 is in the works


OnePlus has recently released the OnePlus Ace 2 in China, a 6.74-inches smartphone that is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 CPU. In light of its success, OnePlus is reportedly planning to release a new version of the phone next month in March. The new OnePlus Ace 2 Dimensity Edition will be equipped with a MediaTek Dimensity 9000 processor and offer up 16GB of memory, and it will be cheaper too.

The OnePlus Ace 2 Dimensity Edition is expected to feature the same 6.74-inch 1.5K flat screen with a resolution of 2772×1240. It will also support high-frequency dimming and will be equipped with a rear 64-megapixel main camera, supplemented by 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle and 2-megapixel macro cameras. The phone may have a battery capacity of 5000mAh and will support 100W fast charging.


The Dimensity 9000 processor used in the OnePlus Ace 2 Dimensity Edition is a flagship chip launched by MediaTek last year. It adopts TSMC’s 4nm process and features a 1+3+4 three-cluster architecture for the CPU part. The super-large core is Cortex X2, and the main frequency is a little above 3.0GHz.

According to reports, the new OnePlus Ace 2 Dimensity Edition will be slightly less premium than the previous model, and some of it camera specifications will be reduced. However, it is expected to be an appealing option for consumers due to its strong performance and large memory. The phone is tentatively scheduled for release next month, and it should be slightly cheaper as well, compared to the Ace 2 Snapdragon model.
