The OnePlus 10R is a clone of another OnePlus device

Tech Highlights:

  • Starting with the OnePlus 10R, it’s mostly identical to the OnePlus Ace. That means you’re getting that neat two-toned rear cover, featuring a striped pattern on the left-hand side and a smooth finish on the right. The similarities are only just beginning though.

  • The OnePlus 10R has been introduced for India by OnePlus. The phone is just a rebranded version of the OnePlus Ace, which is only available in China. The phone will go on sale to the general public on May 4 for INR 38,999 ($509). Last week, OnePlus released the OnePlus Ace, which was a rebadged Realme GT Neo 3. There was a much to appreciate about the phone, with its upper mid-range silicon, 120Hz FHD+ OLED screen, rapid charging, and $387 price tag. Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2021 is now on sale. (Update: Stock has been replenished!). Unfortunately, the OnePlus Ace was only available in China. However, the OnePlus 10R has just been launched, and it is a renamed OnePlus Ace.

This latest OnePlus phone serves up a Dimensity 8100-Max processor, a 6.7-inch FHD+ 120Hz OLED screen (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 ultrawide lens (119.7-degree field-of-view), and a 2MP macro shooter. A 16MP camera is on tap for selfies and video calls.

Either way, you’re getting fast charging here. The 80W version promises a 1-100% charge in 32 minutes, while the 150W variant promises to go from zero to 100% in 17 minutes.One major area of differentiation is in the software arena. The OnePlus 10R ships with Oxygen OS 12.1 atop Android 12, compared to the Ace and Realme GT Neo 3 offering Color OS in China. A sweet cherry on top of the software cake is that the phone will receive three “major” Android OS updates and four years of security patches.

Much like the OnePlus Ace and Realme GT Neo 3, the OnePlus Ace is also available in two variants. There’s a variant with 80W charging and a 5,000mAh battery, as well as a model with 150W charging and a 4,500mAh battery. The latter, which is helpfully known as the OnePlus 10R with 150W SuperVOOC Endurance Edition, also promises to retain 80% of its battery capacity after 1,600 charging cycles. So you should only see major degradation after roughly four years. More OnePlus coverage: Everything you need to know about OnePlus phones in 2022

Other notable features include an in-display fingerprint sensor, dual stereo speakers, Bluetooth 5.2, and Wi-Fi 6. The OnePlus 10R with 80W charging starts at INR 38,999 (~$509) for the 8GB/128GB model, while the 12GB/256GB variant retails 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 colorway 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 OnePlus.in and Amazon.in as well as a few other third-party retailers. It is unlikely this phone will hit markets other than India, as other “R” phones have always been India exclusive.
