What to Expect?
We’ve previously discussed what the OnePlus 8 series would look like. There were talks that the new OnePlus phones might have disappearing cameras. Another leak showed that the OnePlus 8 Pro might come with an extra camera as well.
We’ll know about the details and if there is a OnePlus 8 Lite/Z only after the release on April 14. However, OnePlus did give us a little information on the display of the upcoming series.
Last year, the OnePlus 7 had an amazing 90 Hz Fluid Display. It was one of the best displays in the market. This year, OnePlus has upped their game, and it’s coming out with 120 Hz Fluid Display. So, be prepared to have the smoothest display of all time.
It comes with a unique AMOLED display with a 120 Hz refresh rate. The touch sampling rate is an industry high of 240 Hz. The screen has the latest generation of organic light-emitting materials that has a peak brightness of more than 1000 nits.
The OnePlus team used MEMC technology to support its 120 Hz refresh rate so the videos can play smoothly. This technology is used in high-end TVs. And it utilizes real-time algorithmic adjustments to insert additional frames to any video file.
The OnePlus 8 series comes with a true-to-life color display that supports up to 1 billion different shades of color.
So, get ready for a “Fast and Smooth” experience that OnePlus promises to deliver on April 14, 2020.
