OnePlus has announced the launch of a new display panel with 120Hz refresh rate, along with multiple new technologies. However, there’s more to the display than the higher refresh rate and a report from The Verge reveals a new image that gives us an idea of what the OnePlus 8 Pro could be.
According to the company, the new display features new generation technology standards such as MEMC support for smoother video playback. Other features include a QHD+ resolution, high colour accuracy levels that OnePlus claims are the “most accurate ever”, and 4,096-step automatic brightness control.
The new display takes advantage of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC’s ability to support high refresh rates in displays. The new display is expected to feature in the upcoming OnePlus 8 range of smartphones.
OnePlus’ upcoming smartphone is expected to launch three variants this year, with a mid-range OnePlus 8 Lite, a standard OnePlus 8, and a flagship OnePlus 8 Pro.
Given how innovation trickles down in the realm of technology, the more premium variant, OnePlus 8 Pro, will likely feature the new display panel, which also comes with 240Hz touch sampling rate to offer faster responses to taps, swipes and gestures that technically aids gamers.
According to the rumours, the OnePlus 8 series could debut in March just after Samsung’s Galaxy S20 goes on sale globally.
