Rumor | The OPPO Ace series will get a new generation in 2021, but it will be launched by Realme instead
The Ace series of smartphones is one that started out under the Reno umbrella, but branched out as its own series by OPPO in 2020, complete with its own EVA-themed special edition and ground-breaking 40W wireless charger. Now, however, it seems this OEM is palming it off on its sister brand, Realme, for the purposes of an alleged third generation.
This is in accordance with a new leak posted by the tipster Digital Chat Station. This putative smartphone is not named outright as the Ace3 or something like it; however, it is strongly hinted that it is a device of this series, just to be sold by Realme instead of OPPO. It may be powered by the Snapdragon 875 processor, as may be expected given the SoCs found in its predecessors.
Digital Chat Station also now indicates that its design (in terms of its color, material and finish (CMF, a term commonly thrown around by OnePlus, yet another OPPO sibling business)) will be impressive, with a potentially slim chassis that houses fast-charging technology.
Finally the leaker also made references (that are slightly cryptic and admittedly possibly misinterpreted by Google Translate) to a brand-partnership with a company called ACG. Could the Nike subsidiary of this same name be implicated here? Only time will tell.
