A new OnePlus Ace Pro smartphone is in the works, according to tipster, Digital Chat Station (via PlayfulDroid), who leaked the device on Chinese social media platform, Weibo. According to source, the OnePlus Ace Pro will boast the latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, have 16GB RAM and feature 150W fast charging.
