  • OnePlus has announced the OnePlus 10R for India.
  • The phone is basically a rebranded version of the OnePlus Ace only in China.
  • The phone starts at INR 38,999 (~$509) and will go on general sale on May 4th.

OnePlus launched the OnePlus Ace last week, which was a rebadged Realme GT Neo 3. Between the high-end silicon, 120Hz FHD+ OLED display, fast charging, and around $387 price tag, there was a lot to like about the phone.

Unfortunately, the OnePlus Ace was a Chinese-only version. However, the company just announced the OnePlus 10R, and it is indeed a rebranded OnePlus Ace.

Starting with the OnePlus 10R, it’s virtually identical to the OnePlus Ace. That means you get that neat two-tone back cover, with a striped pattern on the left side and a smooth finish on the right. The similarities are just beginning though.

This latest OnePlus phone offers a Dimensity 8100-Max processor, a 6.7-inch FHD+ 120Hz OLED display (20.1:9, Gorilla Glass 5, HDR10+) and a triple rear camera system. The latter consists of a 50MP IMX766 main camera with OIS, an 8MP ultra wide lens (119.7 degree field of view) and a 2MP macro shooter. A 16MP camera is available for selfies and video calls.

Just like the OnePlus Ace and the Realme GT Neo 3, the OnePlus Ace also comes in two variants. There is a variant with 80W charging and a 5000mAh battery, as well as a model with 150W charging and a 4500mAh battery. The latter, usefully known as the OnePlus 10R with 150W SuperVOOC Endurance Edition, also promises to retain 80% of its battery capacity after 1,600 charge cycles. So you should only see major degradation after about four years.

Either way, you get fast charging here. The 80W version promises a 1 to 100% charge in 32 minutes, while the 150W variant promises to go from zero to 100% in 17 minutes.

A major area of ​​differentiation is in the area of ​​software. The OnePlus 10R comes with Oxygen OS 12.1 on Android 12, compared to Ace and Realme GT Neo 3 offering Color OS in China.

A icing on the software cake is that the phone will receive three “major” updates to the Android operating system and four years of security patches.

Other notable features include an in-display fingerprint sensor, dual stereo speakers, Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6.

Price and availability

The OnePlus 10R with 80W charging starts at INR 38,999 (~$509) for the 8GB/128GB model, while the 12GB/256GB variant sells for INR 42,999 (~$561). Expect to find the phone in Forest Green and Sierra Black colorways.

Meanwhile, the 150W version starts at INR 43,999 (~$574). It only comes in one color and memory configuration: Sierra Black with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.

Either way, the phone will hit general sales on May 4, 2022. You can find it at and as well as a few other third-party retailers. This phone is unlikely to reach markets other than India, as other “R” phones have always been exclusive to India.
