The OnePlus smartphone selection is significantly more extensive today than it was when it initially debuted. The days of a single “flagship killer” are over, and numerous tiers of devices at various price points have taken their place. With the OnePlus 10 Pro out of the way, the company is gearing up to focus on lower-cost, lower-end devices. The OnePlus 10R — also known as the Ace — and the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite are expected to be unveiled on April 28th, but thanks to new leaked renders, we now have a better idea of how they’ll appear.

These images, which were provided by leaker Evan Blass, show the next OnePlus phones from a variety of angles. The OnePlus Ace, which will be known as the 10R in other markets, appears to be similar to earlier leaks. It has a triple rear camera sensor that protrudes from the back, a grooved pattern on the back, and flat edges on the sides. It appears to be a slightly stylized version of the Realme GT Neo 3, with some design elements taken in a different route by OnePlus. That’s hardly surprising, given how close the phones appear to be in terms of specs. The device is also available in two colour schemes: black and blue-ish silver.
The Nord CE 2 Lite will resemble its more costly sibling, the Nord CE 2, but it will also have its own design twists. For starters, it’ll have a top grooved pattern that looks a little like Xiaomi’s Poco devices. The camera bulge appears to be less than that of the normal CE 2, and the phone’s screen will have a noticeable chin, but it appears to be a fairly standard 2022 mid-range phone otherwise.
