UPDATING: Thanks to my colleague Joshua, we can tell you that the “mysterious” OnePlus phone tweeted by Evan Blass today is the OnePlus Ace Racing Edition, which will have a 6.6-inch LCD display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a Mediatek Dimensity 8100-Max chipset under the hood. It has a 3.5mm headphone jack and is expected to be cheaper than the original OnePlus Ace released in China last month.

If there ever was a Hall of Fame for phone tips, Evan Blass would be sure to vote. Blass practically invented the “industry” about ten years ago, when writers anxiously waited for the next @evleaks image with the instantly recognizable “evleaks” watermark.

OnePlus ended up confusing consumers with its naming schemes and release schedules. For example, it released the OnePlus 10 Pro in China on January 11 this year. US consumers had to wait until April 14 to buy the device. And the OnePlus 10 may or may not appear until the second half of this year, months after the Pro model started shipping.

The renders posted by Blass today showing us the front and back of the phone (in two different colors we’d call charcoal and powder blue) also show a lens cover on the camera island on the back that reveals a 64MP camera. sensor will be used on the phone. primary camera.
So what is this phone that Evan Blass tweeted us these renderings about? Even without the Hasselblad branding, the non-Pro OnePlus 10 is still a good bet. Sometimes renders don’t show everything.
