We first heard about the OnePlus Ace 2 Pro, an upcoming handset from the company, through a spec leak in July hinting at a whopping 24GB of RAM. The device falls under the OnePlus Ace series, which is generally confined to China, and is now confirmed to launch on August 16.
OnePlus and its China president Li JieLouis have started teasing the OnePlus Ace 2 Pro through their Weibo accounts, revealing the launch date next to some specifications we could expect from the next Ace series device.
Going by the teased images, it is safe to assume that the device will be on the likes of the flagship OnePlus 11 in terms of design, including the circular camera visor. JieLouis also confirmed that the device would indeed feature up to 24GB of RAM, the first handset to have that capacity from OnePlus.

According to reliable tipster Abhishek Yadav, other interesting specifications we can expect on the OnePlus Ace 2 Pro include a 6.7-inch display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The device is likely to compete against the likes of the best Android phones by featuring a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC coupled with up to 24GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 1TB of faster UFS 4.0 storage.
Following in the OnePlus 11 footsteps, the camera housing will likely incorporate a 50MP Sony IMX890 sensor aided by an 8MP ultra-wide angle lens and a 2MP macro/depth sensor. On the front, it will feature a 16MP selfie shooter. The rumored battery capacity could be 5000mAh or 5500mAh, coupled with OnePlus' 100W fast charging support. Other details of the device could include Android 13, an in-display fingerprint sensor, and a dual stereo speaker system.
The OnePlus Ace 2 Pro sounds and looks promising, especially if it ends up being repackaged as a OnePlus 11T in other regions like India. Usually, the OnePlus T series launch later in the year, but given the OnePlus Open and OnePlus 12 expected later this year, a potential OnePlus 11T could launch sooner than later.
