OnePlus could launch the Ace Racing Edition in India just as it is or as rebranded.

OnePlus has unveiled a new flagship-grade phone in its home market called the Ace Racing Edition. The original OnePlus Ace had launched in India as the OnePlus 10R. So, this newcomer could also cross borders under a different name. Just like the 10R or Ace, it is running on the MediaTek Dimensity 8100-Max chipset. It has Android 12 software on top. But, the rest of the repertoire is different. For instance, the Racing Edition has got an LCD display whereas the regular Ace sports AMOLED.
