Here is a look at the specifications, features, and price of the device.

Design and Display

The OnePlus Ace 3 has a similar design language to the recent OnePlus’ numbered flagship and Ace-branded phones, such as the Ace 2 and Ace 2 Pro. On the front, the Ace 3 has a curved-edge OLED panel with centred punch-hole, and the back panel features a round camera module featuring a triple camera unit.
