OnePlus Ace 2 teased as brand-first "triple-chip" Android smartphone ↺
'Dual-chip' Android smartphones with custom co-processors intended to augment various key device features have become more and more commonplace by now. Too much so for OnePlus, clearly, as it has chosen to add yet more silicon to the upcoming Ace 2.
Company executive Li Jie attributes the first-gen SuperVOOC S chip to OnePlus' increased commitment to research and development. Its integration into the Ace 2 is touted to prolong the life of its new 100W charging system by making it more end-to-end (or, at least, more first-party) compared to last-gen solutions.
The battery-management silicon is poised to join a "professional rendering chip" (a slightly ambiguous description possibly aimed at display, imaging or both) in backing a main former flagship processor up in the Ace 2 on its Chinese February 7, 2023 debut. To date, it is not clear whether the SuperVOOC S will also feature in the device's global edition, the 11R, on its same-day launch.
