OnePlus Ace 3V is the first to use Qualcomm's new mid-range chipset

 

Yesterday, Qualcomm announced their latest mid-range chipset. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 7+ Gen 3. The company also announced that OEMs such as OnePlus would be using its chipset, and sure enough, OnePlus has managed to be the first to launch a smartphone with it in the form of the OnePlus Ace 3V.

 

The handset is currently only available in China, but there is a chance it could debut in other markets under a different name. As for its hardware, the OnePlus Ace 3V features a 6.74-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It is powered by the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 3 and will come with up to 16GB of LPDDR5x RAM. It also comes with up to 512GB of UFS 4.0 storage.

The phone packs a dual camera setup consisting of a 50MP main shooter with OIS, and an 8MP ultra wide angle lens. It is also accompanied by a 16MP front-facing camera. The OnePlus Ace 3V comes with a 5,500mAh battery with support for SuperVOOC charging. It is not the most feature-rich phone we've seen, but with the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 3's capabilities and support for AI, there is potential.

 

It is currently on sale where it is priced starting at CNY 1,999 for the base model. We're not sure if and when OnePlus plans to release the phone in other markets. We'll have to wait and see if they do.


Some OnePlus 12R units aren't playing nice with Verizon

 

We're sure that many were excited when OnePlus announced the global launch of the OnePlus 12R. A handset for around $500 with pretty much flagship hardware? It's an easy sell. Unfortunately for some OnePlus 12R owners in the US, it seems that they are running into issues using their phones with Verizon.

 

Note that not all users have these issues. There are some using it just fine, but there are still quite a number of complaints on the XDA Forums of users encountering problems. According to some of these complaints, they were told that the OnePlus 12 is allowlisted on the Verizon network but the 12R isn't.

 

The good news is that OnePlus is aware of the problem. In a statement made to Android Authority, the company says that they are investigating the problem. They also say that they are working with Verizon to rectify it.

 

"The OnePlus 12R is able to work with all major carriers and on all major 5G networks in the US, including Verizon. We are currently investigating unexpected cases that users may be having with Verizon's network, and are working with the carrier to resolve the issue as soon as possible."

 

This isn't to say you shouldn't buy the OnePlus 12R. If you do and you plan to use it with Verizon, there is a chance you could be affected. It also seems that there are no issues using it with T-Mobile or AT&T. Those are carriers you might want to consider if you think that this is a deal-breaker.


Latest OnePlus 11 update is causing camera issues for some users

 

OnePlus recently pushed out an update to the OnePlus 11 over the weekend. Updates are usually a good thing, but in this case, some OnePlus 11 owners are finding that the update is causing camera issues on their phones.

 

According to user complaints made on the OnePlus Community forums, these issues range from photos not being saved or that the camera app keeps crashing after taking a couple of photos. This can be annoying as it renders the app unusable. Given how much we rely on our phones and cameras, it is understandable that some users are upset.

 

Android Central has reached out to OnePlus who then told the publication that the problem is being investigated. At the moment there is no fix or workaround available. If you haven't updated to the latest version of OxygenOS 14, then you might want to hold off for now. This is because the previous version of the update has no issues with the cameras.

 

Speculation has arisen that perhaps the latest update introduced something new which is causing camera issues on the OnePlus 11. Meanwhile, if you are affected by this, you'll need to download a third-party camera app to continue taking photos. Hopefully, OnePlus will address this problem soon and release a fix.


The OnePlus 12R's battery will put all other OnePlus phones to shame

 

Most smartphones these days tend to come with batteries ranging from 4,000mAh to 5,000mAh, with some going over, and some going under. The OnePlus 11 came with a 5,000mAh battery, but it seems that for the upcoming OnePlus 12R, the company will be giving it its biggest battery to date.

 

OnePlus has confirmed several features of the phone ahead of its launch. This includes the battery which will be of the 5,500mAh variety. This is in line with what we had heard previously, and it is also the biggest battery we've ever seen in a OnePlus phone so far. It remains to be seen how much longer the phone will last with an extra 500mAh battery, but it's still a good thing.

 

It's also interesting to note that it will be bigger than the OnePlus 12 flagship which will come with a 5,400mAh battery.

 

Other features that OnePlus have confirmed includes its display. The OnePlus 12R will feature the use of a LTPO 4.0 ProXDR display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The company did not confirm the display size but last we heard, it could pack a 6.78-inch display with Gorilla Glass Victus 2.

 

The OnePlus 12R will debut alongside the OnePlus 12 on the 23rd of January. The company is expected to make it available globally, so check back with us then for its pricing and availability.


The OnePlus 12's QC seems to be a bit lacking

 

The OnePlus 12 is the company's latest flagship smartphone and commands a pretty hefty price tag, and as such, you would expect it to have a decent build quality. Unfortunately, that isn't the case as some OnePlus 12 owners in China are discovering.

 

According to several posts on Weibo, it looks like the QC on the OnePlus 12 is a bit lacking. Users are reporting gaps between the phone's camera housing and the rest of the phone's body, which is honestly a little unsightly once you've seen it. To be fair, it's not particularly obvious but the fact that it exists does raise some eyebrows.

 

Also, some users are reporting that there is an excessive amount of glue used around the camera housing area. It is unclear how widespread this issue is, but it seems to have been enough for Redmi general manager Lu Weibing to comment about it, where the executive took a dig at OnePlus for having "looser" quality standards compared to Redmi.

 

To be fair, it is impossible for companies to produce 100% perfect phones all the time. Sometimes things do get overlooked as QC is usually done by humans. Hopefully OnePlus is aware of this and will do something to rectify the units already sold and also those that are still in the process of being made. The OnePlus 12 is expected to launch globally in January 2024 so fingers crossed that the company manages to sort this out before then!
