Mystery OnePlus device pops up at the controller and comes with a familiar design

The camera module definitely takes inspiration from OnePlus 10 Pro

OnePlus’ merger with OPPO signaled the start of a new strategy for the brand – one that favored bombarding the market with new launches targeting prices across the spectrum compared to the previous flagship-only tactic. Because of this, there have already been launches across the board this year such as the OnePlus 10 Pro, the China-exclusive Ace and Nord CE 2. But the company is not done yet – freshly leaked renditions point to the arrival of another model, and it is possibly a more economical version of the OnePlus Ace.

These reproductions come to us from the tipper Abhishek Agarwal (via TENAA), showing the upcoming device from several angles. The camera module is easily the most conspicuous part of the device, similar to the OnePlus 10 Pro in terms of camera placement. But unlike most other phones that use a separate housing, this new mysterious model covers its lenses with the back panel itself, which is evenly raised to form the camera bulge. The technology seems to be reminiscent of what was used in the Oppo Find X5 Pro, though the shape is different.

The marketing name is unknown at the moment, but the phone’s model number PGZ110 is similar to the OnePlus Aces PGKM10, suggesting the possibility that the two are connected in some way (it could be Ace Lite, perhaps?). What we have are the key specifications. The phone is supposed to come with a 6.59-inch LCD screen with a refresh rate of 120Hz, the Dimensity 8100 processor, a 64MP primary camera, a headphone jack (would you believe it) and a 5.00mAh battery that is capable of to charge at up to 65W.

At first glance, the LCD panel seems like a huge downturn and does not quite fit in well with the almost flagship Dimensity 8100 chip, but only a proper review will tell – LCD monitors have also been improved in recent years. We can only assume that this small deficiency could be remedied with a reasonably low price. Finally, there does not appear to be any hint of the alarm slider in the renderings, at least on the right edge. Considering that OnePlus Ace already missed this fan-favorite feature, we would not be surprised if this version goes the same way.
